by Green Living

  • 2 bathroom

  • 2 story
This house plans would work well as a getaway second home or a peaceful primary residence on any site that has a view to be captured. This plan is a great mix of flexibility, luxury, and efficiency. This home also incorporates many of the popular modern green features such as an open floor plan, proper passive solar design, and a roof deck. At the first level of the house, large folding doors open up from the living room to the deck. The siding is a combination of two types of material. The fiber cement panel siding works well with modern designs while the tongue and groove cedar board siding provides a comfortably rural look and pleasing contrast with the fiber cement panel siding. The extended overhangs at the high point of the roof provide shading and weather protection for the large double height windows on both the first and second floor. Ideally this face of the house should be oriented in a southerly direction to take advantage of passive solar benefits. The most captivating interior feature of this design will be experienced upon entering the living room. The living room is a cavernous space that is absolutely flooded with natural light tanks to the large amount of glazing on the back wall. Large folding doors open up to the outdoor deck allowing a connection between indoor and outdoor space. The first floor plan was built to maximize the openness of this design while still allowing for functional built-ins and unique design features. The combination kitchen dining room represents one of the most popular and talked about features in housing today. This integrated open space creates easy flow between food preparation, and consumption. The second floor and roof deck plans have been crafted to create a true indoor-outdoor living environment.
