Home plan

Step up past the front porch into this house, plan HMAFAPW1703 from Homeplans.com, and you’ll immediately see back through the great room to the covered rear porch — a long sight line that makes any space seem bigger.

In the great room, a wall of windows looks out to the backyard, a fireplace makes the side wall a cozy focal point at night, and a snack bar adds casual seating.

A cooktop island gives more prep space in the middle of the kitchen. The bayed breakfast nook opens to the porch.

Smart placement helps ensure privacy for each of the four bedrooms, with closets and bathrooms serving as sound buffers.

Two nice touches: Bathroom three can be accessed through the hallway or kept private for bedroom four, and the garage opens to a hallway that doesn’t go through the laundry room en route to the kitchen.

With 2,190 square feet on one level, this home provides plenty of space for a family, and transitions well for empty nesters by eliminating stairs.

To build this house, order a complete set of construction documents at www.houseoftheweek.com or call toll free 866-772-1013 and reference the plan number, HMAFAPW1703.
