Pools are wonderful amenities for recreation and fitness, but what if you’re building in an area with distinct seasons? These unique plans include pools or spas in enclosed spaces within the home so that owners can swim and relax throughout the whole year. With no leaves or debris to skim, indoor pools may be a smart choice for a vacation home that sits unoccupied for part of the year.
The original plan, 26 Monroe Avenue, is a familiar vernacular style with a first-floor layout that resonates with plan buyers. Requests for three- and four-bedroom plans with a Low Country aesthetic led to tweaks in the floor plan and exterior elevations that resulted in new plans, 248 Abbeville Road and 248 Broussard Road. The Abbeville Road home is a four-bedroom Creole design with a large, simple, hipped roof and deep overhangs. The upper floor hosts three bedrooms with private baths, plus a convenient study. Broussard Road is a three-bedroom Generational Farmhouse style typically seen throughout the South. The efficient upper floor includes two bedrooms with private baths and a study at the top of the stairs.
From simple entry-level homes to beautifully appointed (but still modestly sized) empty nests, these small homes (most under 2,000 square feet) deliver outstanding value. Buyers will love the ease of maintaining a smaller home. Today’s best small house plans keep costs down by eliminating little-used formal rooms (like living and media rooms) in favor of practical spaces like mud rooms, extra storage, and pocket offices. To maximize the useable space, pick a plan with an open layout, clear sightlines though the home, and an island kitchen.
The timber-frame construction is often clad in clapboard siding or unpainted wood shingles that weather to gray. The Cape Cod house plan calls for a simple paneled front doorway that leads to a main hallway and symmetrical interior that is warmed by a massive central chimney, although modern floor plans may vary. Steep rooflines limit build-up of winter precipitation, while second-story side-gables admit light and help circulate air throughout the home.
