Plan Description

This romantic, nature-inspired, Craftsman-Modern getaway home evokes images of relaxing country vacations and joyful family reunions. Architect Tina Govan and Not So Big House author/architect Sarah Susanka collaborated on the design. The house can be built with main and upper levels only — the upper level converted to house extra bedrooms. The original commission was for a lakeside site. Primary goals were to capture water views, embody the sense of peace and serenity that derives from a rural setting, and make the home work as well for just a few people as for a large extended family. In essence, says, Sarah: "It needed to function as two houses in one." Sarah explains: "A series of connected buildings, with wide eaves, generous porch and breezeway, and many outdoor spaces, offers the opportunity to move effortlessly from inside to out. A series of movable screens allows the house to be completely opened to the outdoors when the weather is appropriate, as well as to open the center breezeway to the terrace and view beyond." The breezeway and roof deck are key features. With folding glass doors on either side, the breezeway walls disappear, seamlessly connecting both sides of the site and framing vistas through the house. From the front patio, you can walk straight out to the roof deck with expansive views on all sides. This outdoor living room-with-fireplace is embedded in the body of the house and is accessible from the major rooms. Note the beautiful interior woodwork. The floor plan has interesting combined spaces deftly handled: Rec. Room/ TV Area / Office, Kitchen / Living / Dining. The roof deck brckons. The Master bedroom has wonderful windows and accesses the main deck rather than a “vestigial” master deck that does not get used.
