Architectural Designs has a number of well-designed Craftsman house plans including this one. At nearly 2,700 sq. ft., this house is a tad too big for our needs, especially considering we plan to have a finished basement, but it has a nice open floor plan with a large master suite that has access to the covered patio out back. The exterior details are consistent with the period and I love the large, 5 column front porch.
The large arched 2nd story window would be a very cool feature for one of our kids’ bedrooms and I really like the practicality of the large pantry in the kitchen.
The guest room suite is the only area that we don’t feel is necessary to have, especially since there is a bonus room upstairs. But other than that, this house is pretty classic. Nothing too extravagant on the exterior, though not unlike my dream girlfriends in high school, it’s what’s on the inside that could make this house really shine…OK, so that statement applies much better to this home than the girls I was physically infatuated with in high school, but you get the point.
Ehhh, I’m not really sure where I’m going with this so I’ll just close for now before I get myself in trouble.
