Who says big houses have all the fun?

Plan HMAFAPW01298 from Homeplans.com has an open layout that would make a great vacation home or budget-friendly primary residence.

This farmhouse-style home squeezes space-efficient features into 1,064 square feet of finished living space.

An unfinished basement offers the opportunity to double that area.

A cozy front porch opens into a vaulted great room and its adjoining dining area.

The vaulted ceilings and open layout add a sense of spaciousness.

A hearth in the great room provides coziness.

The U-shaped kitchen has a breakfast bar with seating for three open to the dining room, and a sink overlooking a flower box.

Two bedrooms, each with vaulted ceilings, are positioned along the back of the plan.

Each has wall closets and a view of the back yard.

They share the full bath in the utility zone, near the laundry closet and a small side porch.

An open-rail staircase leads to the basement.
