This plan was built and is one of our featured Building Stories. BLOG: Building A Country House - Case Study This rustic-elegant gable-roofed 3 bedroom 3.5 bath ranch house is all about easy indoor-outdoor living on one level and is inspired by the early modern houses of California architects like William Wurster and Joseph Esherick. A key feature is the generous lanai or summer living room with window walls opening fully to the garden. At the front of the house the great room includes an open kitchen with a two-tiered cooking and buffet island, a dining area in its own window bay, and a dramatic cantilevered hearth for extra seating and display. Additional features include a floating counter and glass-enclosed shower with skylight in the master bath, a sitting area in the master bedroom with access to the garden, walk-in showers in the other two bathrooms, and a laundry and powder room near the living room. Construction is simple and straightforward: the concrete foundation slab is the floor itself; the siding -- which is board and batten over plywood -- is the structural wall panel system.

“ Design should be accessible to everyone. It's not only how something is designed, but how it's delivered -- i. e. the process -- that's important. I'm excited to be part of Houseplans' growing collection of architects and designers who are making high quality professional home design affordable and available to more people through ready-made plans. ” Nicholas Lee, AIA is an architect. He designed our exclusive Plans 508-1 and 508-2, both of which have been constructed.
