THE Sunnyside, always on the Sunnyside, keep on the Sunnyside of life. It will help us ev'ry day, It will brighten all the way if we'll keep on the Sunnyside of life. So say the Smokey River Boys and we believe it.
Designed as a custom home for a builder this house was to fit on a tiny infill lot. We made the most of the footprint while trying to maintain the charm of a farmhouse that may have stood there a century past. We removed some of those tight limitations of the original house to bring you a freer plan that is more versatile.
The detached garage was a must. But how do you maximize living area with such a small heated footprint? Easy answer, build out into space. Given that our second floor had little restrictions, we concentrated on giving the lower floor as much charm as possible. The flex room off the kitchen could be a dining room, office, or a (creatively carved) bedroom. Two banks of windows bring in lots of natural light. The kitchen is designed to be open enough to accommodate a farm style dining table if you prefer the country kitchen setup. Otherwise an island could be utilized.
|Upstairs are the classic formula of 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Since we built over the garage and breezeway we were able to gain substantial square footage. In fact, the second floor accounts for a full 2/3ds of the floor area. Within this space are also a sizable bonus room and pocket laundry room. Where are the water heater and furnace? As with most of our plans, we prefer to spec out instant hot water and radiant heat flooring. If you prefer the former, there is plenty of room in the garage for those extra utilities. The attic is also large enough to walk upright in.|
This plan is sold with slab, joisted and post and beam style foundations included. At this time, we will not make custom revisions to the plan. However, if you would like to make suggestions to improve the plan, we would love to hear your comments. If you simply must have something changed, consider purchasing the Erasable Vellum or CAD file.
All plans include four elevations, floor plans, foundation plans, at least two building sections, framing plans for the second floor and/or roof, and notes and construction details. This is everything you will need to build, but may not be everything you need to get a permit. Electrical layouts, cabinet elevations and engineering are not included.
