Not So Big Showhouse 2005

Plans are available for sale at http://www.notsobighouse.com/plans/ssplans.asp

This home was originally designed and built as a walk-through demonstration of Sarah Susanka's Not So Big® House concepts for the 2005 International Builders Show in Orlando, Florida. The Not So Big® Showhouse 2005 sports a welcoming wrap around veranda, spacious screened porch, long breezeway, and pool changing area. Plans are also included for a second floor "gazebo" above the garage, though Sarah recommends keeping the garage a one story structure if integrating the design into an existing neighborhood. (The second story was for Showhouse demonstrations and exhibits.)

In addition to its exemplification of Sarah's design principles, it is highly energy efficient and sustainably designed. A combination of open spaces, varied ceiling heights, and well-placed windows and lighting give the home a simultaneously spacious and cozy feeling.

A separate away room can be used as a media room, an office, or a guest bedroom. The large screen porch off the living area has views in three directions, and along with a series of connected decks encourages outdoor living. The kitchen is at the heart of the main level. It is beautifully integrated with both the main living area and the dining room, and has plenty of work surfaces for the serious cook. Tucked behind the kitchen is a true mudroom, along with a mail sorting place.
