Open Layout with Excellent Photography

This elegant plan features generous bedrooms, open gathering areas, and tons of handy storage. For example, check out the master suite’s big walk-in closet, which opens to both a safe room and the laundry room. In the kitchen, a large pantry holds a family-size load of groceries. And each secondary bedroom also boasts a walk-in closet, with linen storage in the nearby hallway. Don’t miss the spacious workshop in the garage, too!
