Breezeway This prairie style home designed by Sarah Susanka projects horizontal, clean lined elevations that mimic a prairie landscape. The home features voluminous light filled spaces and rich exposed beam woodwork that reflect craftsman influences and draw you in, while letting you glimpse into one area from another at all times. The openness and clean architectural lines characterize Susankaâ€™s designs, providing volume and light plus intimacy all at the same time. Living room, dining room and kitchen areas blend together and feed into each other. The kitchen has a large center island with cooktop, book shelves, and two pantries. There are abundant cupboards and lots of counter space. Designed with aging in place in mind, the master bedroom suite is on the main floor of the house. There is a private four-season porch/sunroom with sliding doors which can be opened to create a breezeway. Connecting the sunroom porch to the house is a beautiful indoor spa and pool, a retreat which can be enjoyed year-round while watching the seasons change. The lower level is a walkout, and includes three bedrooms, two baths and an exercise room. Upstairs, an open loft with family room and study overlooks the main floor. The entire house has many decks which provide indoor/outdoor living experiences. There is an attached garage, providing easy access to the kitchen and utility areas, and above it is a wonderful live-in apartment. PHOTOGRAPHS BY Doug Evans, Obeo Inc.

“'Not So Big®' puts the emphasis on quality rather than quantity and is designed to fit the way we really live today. It's a message that's being embraced now more than ever, and it's wonderful to see so many people come to the realization that a house doesn't have to be bigger to be better.” Award-winning architect and best selling author Sarah Susanka is the J K Rowling of home design. She has brought her practical, less-can-be-more brand of magic to the world of architectural home plans. A member of the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects and a Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council, Sarah was born in Kent, England and lives in North Carolina. Hailed as an innovator by Fast Company, Newsweek, and US News and World Report, she received the Anne Morrow Lindbergh Award from the Lindbergh Foundation for outstanding individual achievement, and Builder Magazine honored Sarah as one of their 30 Top Innovators who have changed the face of residential construction. Sarah Susanka's influential books include The Not So Big House (Taunton, 1999), Home By Design (Taunton, 2004), The Not So Big Life: Making Room for What Really Matters (Random House, 2007), and Not So Big Remodeling (Taunton, 2009). She has lectured widely and appeared on numerous television and radio programs including Oprah, Charlie Rose, and Diane Rehm. She is showing a new generation of homeowners, builders, and developers how to "build better not bigger."
