Craftsman Cottage: Courtyard Entry

Craftsman detailing was a natural choice for this couple's farmland retreat. The owners wanted a home wide open to the surrounding views, full of sunlight, and perfect for entertaining.

The center of this house is a single open living/dining/kitchen space that flows into an open porch at the back and a screened porch just off of the kitchen. A rooftop deck over the screened porch has been a big hit with overnight guests.

Thank you for your interest, but all of our homes are one-of-a-kind custom homes; they are not house plans that are for sale.

I received a returned phone call back saying that all you plans are custom made and not for sale. How does one work with you to design a custom home? I am semi- retired and want a wide open concept like in these photos- one main floor living though- I do not need more than two bedrooms.

can we add this big of a dormer? Instead of two separate. It achieves the bringing in light issue, but is more mountain lodge than cape.
