The core design offers a two-bedroom open floor plan with plenty of windows for natural light and cross ventilation. However, if the need arises for more space, the options are exciting. First, a central staircase leads to a second floor that easily transforms from attic storage to either an additional two bedrooms or a game room/media center. The quaint two-bedroom cottage now becomes a four bedroom home, while retaining its architectural integrity.
If the upstairs optional area still doesn’t provide enough space, two more bedrooms can easily be added to the side of the home. The already spacious hall bath easily accommodates these new rooms.
The detached garage could be built along with the home, or, depending on the finances, constructed later. The “carport” easily transforms into a spacious outdoor living area. Combined with the optional kitchen and toilet room in the garage, the entire space offers an efficient alternative to a separate and costly “outdoor kitchen.”
Garages that double as outdoor living spaces can have a dramatic impact on a neighborhood of homes with garages located at a rear alley. Imagine the added activity along what is often just a narrow passageway for cars! Weekend cookouts could easily transform the alley into a “people place” and a safe area for the children to play.
