A classic Craftsman design with a signature welcoming and protective front porch can be embellished with additional period detail. Built at grade (as shown) or above, the living space connects to the outdoors with an adjacent patio or raised deck with options for a Pergola/Trellis. Adding an enclosure creates a traditional screened porch—a practical benefit in many regions. Generous windows and convenient door access enhance the outdoor connection.
The spacious, efficient, floor plan has most of the features of a larger house in an efficient, easily expanded, envelope with virtually no waste space. A generous main bedroom and separate bedroom/office/guest room flank a compartmented bath. The highly efficient u-shaped kitchen complete with eating bar is comparable with full sized residences. The built-in seating arrangement 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.
