PLAN NUMBER:  CYS-1915.O2

DESIGN COMMENTS
This home was designed with informal living in mind, maximizing the indoor/outdoor relationship.  The plan also explores some alternate design solutions.  The main Grand Living Area of the house with its high ceiling and abundance of windows floods the space with natural light.  The transparency of this space ties the front courtyard and rear yard, visually expanding the interior in two directions.  The design also has a covered front porch and a trellis in the rear that will assist in keeping the interior space shaded in the summer months.  To promote outdoor entertaining and provide a focal point a fireplace is located in the semi-private front courtyard.

Based on various studies a new trend for His and Her Master Bedrooms is emerging.   This plan addresses that small but growing trend by providing two identical master bedrooms with private vanities and a shared tub/shower room.  As an alternative, the secondary master bedroom and vanity can be modified to function as a separate bedroom with a private bath. 

Another design feature of the plan is built-in storage space.  Between the windows facing the front couryard, this plan has two storage closets and full-height storage/bookshelves. Additionally, built-in storage can be found in both vanities, the tub/shower room and in the laundry/mud room.

DESIGN COMMENTS
Should you select to go with His and Her Master bedrooms you may find the need for an additional bedroom.  The Third Bedroom option can serve as a child's bedroom, a guest bedroom or a bedroom for an elderly parent.  The bedroom has its own private bath and also has close proximity to the rear yard.

DESIGN COMMENTS
The Flex Room option offers a few opportunities depending on your needs.  The space with its abundance of windows is ideal for a Four Season Porch (Sunroom). It can also be used as a Media Room, a Hobby Room,or as a Study.

DESIGN COMMENTS
In those regions where insects are a nuisance the Screen Porch option allows you to enjoy the outdoors without uninvited guests.  The twelve foot high ceiling in this design makes the space feel more open and less defined.  The screen porch includes a fireplace that provides an alternative locaton (and insect free) space from that of the front courtyard fireplace.
