Plan 443-11: Cottage

This compact 1,687 sq. ft. 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home combines practicality and charm and would work as a vacation cabin or year round home. The 9- by 26-foot front porch is spacious enough to function as an outdoor room, expanding the house in good weather. Up two steps from the ground, it has just enough elevation to be connected to, but still feel separate from, the street. Occupying one end of the great room, the kitchen is defined by an island that includes a sink and an eating bar. The back door opens to the kitchen at the side of the house. The ground floor master suite includes a walk-in closet and a trough sink. The stairs up to the second floor flair across one corner of the great room and can double as seating. Upstairs the washer and dryer occupy an alcove in the hall between the two bedrooms.
