This contemporary design is a nod to mid–century modern style. A low-pitched hip roof is capped with an optional skylight. The adjacent outdoor living area is functionally enhanced with a covered canopy. Enclosure, a practical benefit in many regions, is an option. A protective, welcoming, entrance canopy completes the unified appearance. The optional skylight requires appropriate framing for its dramatic effect.
A highly efficient floor plan maximizes every square inch of living space. Sliding doors open the home office–study transforming an roomy living–kitchen–dining area into an expansive open floor plan. Closing the doors gives privacy or creates a guest bedroom when needed. Even the bath is compartmented for flexibility. The large, efficient, u-shaped kitchen and breakfast bar/counter layout is comparable with larger houses. Built-in seating (optional) functions as a dining banquette and cozy alcoved living space. Generous windows fill the interior with light while swing or sliding doors conveniently access outdoor living space. Window locations are ideal for a/c saving cross ventilation.
