Bungalow Exterior - Conceptual Design #1365
Conceptual Design #1365 is a unique bungalow with a front-entry, 2-car garage under the primary roofline. Arches and columns line the front exterior, and a gable with Palladian window and decorative bracket add curb appeal. This compact layout has a thoughtful separation of public and private realms. The master bedroom enjoys rear views, a large walk-in closet, and a spacious bathroom, while the secondary bedrooms have double closets and share a Jack-and-Jill bath. The laundry room is near all three bedrooms, and a mud room serves as a catch-all on the way to the living areas. The great room is the heart of this home, completely open to the efficient kitchen with French doors opening to a screen porch with skylights. The dining room is perfect for both formal and casual meals, and the hearth room is a cozy place to relax. A pantry, e-space, and massive bonus room with attic space add flexibility and plenty of storage.

  1. I like the plan but agree about going thru the mudroom to the loo. What about moving its door to the long wall, next to the mud room, facing the side of the fireplace?
    What about swapping the inglenook and screened porch? That way, the inglenook is easily accessed from the great room and the porch is brighter, on the outside. This will take away the windows from the loo and laundry room, but those rooms often have no windows.

    1. I think having the door to the bathroom positioned where it is currently is an advantage. We currently have a bathroom with the door that leads almost directly out to the family room. Having the door around the corner is much more private. Agree on swapping the location of the porch. It seems a bit useless being the size it is and the number of windows that it has into it. Those windows will not let much light in being that the porch is enclosed on three sides.

  2. I like the idea of a screened in porch, but it seems that it would be dark because of it being enclosed by 3 sides.

  3. I like it but the great room is too narrow. Many open concept plans require a floating furniture arrangement and the narrowness of the great room pushes the furniture too near the kitchen island for good traffic flow and ease of television viewing. Fortunately in this plan the TV can be placed to the side of the FP but it seems very off center. I love the character of the exterior design.

    1. Also, there needs to be a half bath or a better set up for guests to use the second bath. Going through the mud room and through a bedroom doesn’t seem like good flow to me.

  4. I love this plan! The laundry room off the master bedroom is perfect for us. My husband and I are on the market for plan to build our retirement home. we do prefer split bedrooms but that is not a huge issue at all. THANKS!

  5. I have looked at many house plans and I am really excited about this one. I love seeing plans with good design and flow, practical yet special. This one looks to be all of that and more. Great design as always!

  6. I appreciate homes that are designed with the bedrooms all together. Anymore, it’s nearly impossible to find a nice plan, with a family-oriented layout. This home plan seems perfect for a new family with small children.
    Formal dining rooms aren’t as popular as they once were. The only thing I would like to see different in this plan is a flex-room/ less formal dining space. It’s lovely!

    1. I like your idea regarding a formal dining room. Plan #1365 would be ideal if the formal dining room could be repurposed. Everything else on the plan is prefect.
