Alfresco entertaining takes priority with these floor plans, which create excellent flow between indoors and out.

Step Out to the Deck

Elegant yet open, this home exudes country charm. Porches in front and back create more living space outdoors. Inside, the kitchen features a large island with a cooktop and snack bar. Built-in storage here and in the nearby living room keeps a household organized. Easy to reach on this level, the master suite displays two walk-in closets, double sinks, a separate shower and tub, and close proximity to the deck. Two more bedrooms share a bathroom and the library space upstairs. Designed for accessibility, all the interior and exterior doors are three feet wide.

Small Vacation Cottage or Add-On Unit

This one-bedroom cottage makes a great getaway home for a couple, or perhaps could serve as an in-law unit on a larger property. The stone-wrapped fireplace flanked by windows forms the focal point of the great room. Double barn doors create a chic entrance to the bedroom, which can be a master as shown or easily accommodate a wall of built-in bunk beds. The open kitchen presents a view from the sink plus sliding doors out to the large side porch. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Optional Walkout Lower Level

With a bonus room upstairs and an optional walkout basement available to add on, this plan is ready to expand to fit future needs. The main level features a split-bedroom layout that gives privacy to the master suite, which holds a large walk-in closet and a private bath with two sinks and a separate tub and shower. Two more bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath on the opposite side. In the middle, the great room provides a spacious and bright gathering space with a cozy fireplace, built-in storage, and a view of the porch. A breakfast bar offers room for four people to sit and total openness to the dining room. Don't miss the extra storage/workshop in the garage. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

A Porch for All Seasons

Here's a home that takes outdoor living seriously, from the charming wraparound porch in front to the network of outdoor rooms (screened, covered, and open) in back. The master suite opens to the screened porch, making it easy to enjoy the view while protected from bugs. A large walk-in closet and spacious private bath add to the appeal of the master suite, with the laundry room conveniently nearby. A snack bar adds room for casual meals in the kitchen. Smart storage spaces include the walk-in pantry on the way in from the garage and linen closets near the hall bath. Skylights brighten the bonus room upstairs.
