This is an modern take (to me) of a country farmhouse type plan, I found this house plan on Houseplans.com – it’s very cool, I love the layout, the wide porches
This Signature Plan 888-7, designed by Nicholas Lee, is 2,168 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The layout of the first floor is nice, it’s open, and most importantly it offers wonderful deep overhangs for the porches which help keep the house cool in the hot months.
It’s nice how this floor plan separates the guest rooms from the master bedroom. On the left hand side you have the office, master bedroom and bathroom and on the right hand side you have the guest rooms which share a bathroom, and in the center of the house you have kitchen, dining, great room. For Fred and I that would be more than plenty, we would do without the upstairs…
The loft is accessed by a ladder from the main floor. You could always use that space as storage (much like you would use an attic with a pull down staircase). If the ladder was in the way or you didn’t want to draw attention to it, you could move it when not needed. A climate controlled attic… at least in the south that would be really nice! I remember the first time I put red and white taper candles in the Christmas decoration box. When I pulled it down the next year the candles had completely melted. Many of our good ornaments ruined (not by the candle wax, but from the heat).
What do you think of this plan? Let me know!
