Conceptual Design #1373: Family-Friendly Craftsman Plan

Conceptual Design #1373 has an Arts & Crafts exterior with a mix of stone, shake, and board and batten siding, crowned with cupolas and shed dormers. A wide front porch leads the way inside to an exceptionally open living space where columns and ceiling treatments define the great room, library, kitchen, and single dining area. The curved kitchen island is ideal for entertaining, while a large pantry and family studio / utility room sit out of view of the living areas.

The angled garage has a workshop, outdoor access, and plenty of windows to bring in natural light. A bonus room above offers flexible space for future expansion.

Two bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet and private bath, sit across the plan from the bedroom/study and master suite. The master bedroom enjoys rear views and porch access, dual walk-in closets, and a bathroom with linen closet and plenty of counter space.

Outdoor living can be enjoyed in any season on the screen porch with fireplace and skylights.

Bonus Room Ideas

Ways to utilize your bonus room that add flexibility to your home.

More than just extra storage, a bonus room can become the ideal space for crafts, hobbies, or entertaining. Cheerful colors and dormer windows help create an open feel for a play room or rec room. Or, use darker colors and rich details to create an intimate entertaining space. Check out these bonus room photos from a selection of Don Gardner home plans:
