The simple gable, long porch, and tall French doors spell relaxation. Plan 889-2
In this barn-inspired farmhouse, everything centers on the great room containing kitchen and living/dining area. The kitchen island and the fireplace are at opposite ends of the main space, which opens to long porches on two sides. The very efficient and flexible design allows for easy modification and expansion.
The front door opens into the great room. A walk-in pantry is at one end of the kitchen, by the laundry. This is where you would add a garage and make the laundry double as a mud room entry. The master bedroom has its own patio.
he loft overlooks the great room and works as a study or extra bedroom.
