I ran across this plan by Alison Ramsey Architects, and its really quite different from what I’ve been posting… So… in an effort to reach everyone’s likes, I am posting a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom plan that is roughly 1,847 square feet of heated living space. It’s not always easy for me to imagine this sketch as a real house… Allison Ramsey Architects shows photos of real houses, and that helps immensely! See the images HERE.
If I were to build this house I’m thinking I would either have wood siding, painted white with a galvanized metal roof and black trim around the windows or shakes, but I’m leaning towards the white/black/metal… I would use an amazing front door (friends don’t let friends buy ugly doors!) something a tad wider than normal, with as much glass as you’re comfortable with… I think that would look amazing. Install a gas lantern (or two) and add an American flag and whoa! You have one gorgeous house! Ahhhh, that was fun… what would YOU do?
I love the setup of this plan. I like that the master bedroom/bathroom is in the back of the house, and I like that its not a huge bathroom… its just right! Nice walk in closet as well… very nice and cool that there is a small deck off of the master. The utility room is close by, which is helpful when folding and putting away clothes. Our laundry room is currently in our bathroom and I love it there! It’s so convenient to pull clothes out of the dryer and fold them on the bed. Easy on the back too (we have a high bed). This plan has a great open kitchen, dining, living spaces and a small powder room tucked out of the way. Perfect!
The upstairs has a few bedrooms that share a bath (thankyouverymuch!) I think it’s nice that everyone has their own bathroom if they’re the ones cleaning it (hee hee)… otherwise I think a shared bath is the way to go!
I love the loft area, either to use as a little private tv/reading room, or a place for a dreadmill, uh, I meant TREADmill… Could also make a nice little office… the possibilities for that space are endless!
