Modern Plans
Gregory La Vardera Architect

The living area in this house is an open flowing space. The living room includes a windowed bay that extends out under the porch roof and puts you out into the landscape. You will find the kitchen has a similar space that is ideal for a table. The rear wall of the house has high windows that provide privacy from the approach side of the house. But the back wall also provides for the real anchor of this design, the storage wall that runs the entire length of the house. Starting in the utility room, running through the entry, morphing into an entertainment center in the living space, a pantry in the kitchen, and the closets for the master bedroom, this rivals the storage of a much larger house.

0971 The Plat House 3

This house is called the Plat House because it is surrounded on three sides by deck space and most of the interior space is open to the view as if the entire house is one big deck. The design is based on a guest house I worked on in 1995 and which has been updated, completely redesigned actually, to offer as a stock plan. Complete drawings were never done the first time around so it is being recreated from the ground up to make it part of the plan collection. Read more about the Plat House design below the images.

If you like the Plat House 3 but think you only need two bedrooms, then take a look at the 0242 Plat House. All the Plat House 3 goodness with no wasted space!
