OP-3-2040

The main room around the fireplace is the heart of this 2040 square foot "Open Plan" (OP) series home. The vaulted ceiling soars up to a book gallery and private study or media room overlooking the living space. An efficient kitchen is placed out of the way, but is not isolated from the activity center. All of the bedrooms, and the living/dining room can share the view. The kitchen and bathrooms will receive morning light if oriented to the east. A breeze way connects an extra deep garage to the house at the utility room. The second bathroom can double as a mud room to save costs. The second and third bedrooms will inspire kids to dream, with a window seat in the flower box, and an interior window with shutters for puppet shows or keeping an eye on the action.
