This rendition of the classic “saltbox” makes a distinctive statement. Deep overhangs and inset windows are design features. The large roof area provides ample space for solar or photovoltaic panel arrays. A steep roof slope encourages vaulted ceiling spaces when suitably framed.
The open, efficient, floor plan has many features of a larger house in an expandable envelope with virtually no waste space. A generous main bedroom and study/guest room flank a compartmented bath. The highly efficient u-shaped kitchen, complete with eating bar, is comparable with layouts in much larger houses. A built-in seating arrangement works as a dining banquette and cozy alcoved living space. Generous windows fill the interior with a/c saving cross ventilation.
For an especially distinctive look consider using corrugated metal siding and roofing available in a wide range of metals and colors.
