The main floor is thoughtfully arranged with an island kitchen that accesses a butler’s pantry and storage pantry on the way to the dining room.

At just over 3,000 square feet, this two-story Craftsman house plan with its upstairs master bedroom is ideal for growing families where the parents want quick access to their children’s rooms.

Multiple gables create great curb appeal and the narrow width and front-facing garage bays lend well to narrower lots. A metal roof and stone-based columns frame the front entry. Mixed siding and cedar shakes create an interesting texture for this home’s exterior.

An art niche creates a welcoming foyer and a coat closet and powder room are just inside. An island kitchen is serviced by a butler’s pantry and a storage pantry is nearby. The single dining space is topped with a coffered ceiling and framed in columns. A cozy great room with fireplace opens to a rear covered porch and patio. With a private bathroom, the study/bedroom would make an ideal guest suite.

The bonus room is flooded with natural light from a dormer window and provides additional square footage for an entertainment room or a future expansion.

    I love the exterior of this home!! However, my thoughts make a completely different home plan: I would move the butler’s pantry and pantry to the area behind the garage so the kitchen, dining room and living space are fully open to one another. I would have the kitchen island run the opposite way. This change would dictate the refrigerator be moved to the outside wall. (Personally I do not prefer a wall oven. I think wall ovens create another block for sight lines and are too small. I cook a lot.) There would still be room for an office space to take care of household organization and paperwork etc. in the area behind the garage even with the addition of the pantries. (Pantries are very necessary to keep kitchen counters free of appliances that are not used daily. I know this would mean walking across the house to utilize but for me that is okay. I love well organized pantries with homemade canned goods, organized small appliances, and seasonal dishes displayed. Doored spaces are nice for the “regular” cooking items.) I would remove the closet from the entry so the foyer is more of a statement re: decorating. (I think closets detract from the welcoming factor per decorating and setting the stage for the home. I like a well appointed wall with a table or piece of furniture as opposed to doors in a foyer area. ) I would use the storage by the stairs for guest coats. I would eliminate the dormer over the garage and use the space as a craft room or storage. (A craft room could also be in the basement.) I would eliminate the third story dormers. (Forgoing the dormers would save construction dollars for someone that does not need the space. Trusses are less expensive than building A living space. However, I would maintain the roof pitch as the exterior look is perfect. I would much rather have a basement since I live in the Midwest and am used to having a basement. Basements make access to utilities so nice. And are also great for the wine cellar.) For me personally a three bedroom home is adequate (if necessary could put a fourth bedroom in the basement) so I would make the guest rooms larger with seating areas and dedicated baths with larger vanities. This would make the spare bedroom areas fully functional for the adult visiting kids or friends and leave space in the rooms for baby cribs when necessary. If a crib is not necessary small reading areas are nice for guests. I like nice size vanity areas for guests too so there is a place for their toiletries. Walk-in closets are also nice with a space for luggage. I like the idea of a third garage bay. Many two person households do have three vehicles. I wonder if the master bedroom could be placed on the first floor if a third garage bay was added. The master could be off the living space behind the garage??? (You asked for ideas. lol I love looking at blueprints and floor plans and making them “livable”. I have many of your plan books and use them for relaxation reading. 🙂 The New England Craftsman look of this home is awesome. The doors in the dining room and the wall of windows in the living area are great. I think a movable wall in the living space to the outdoor living space would be really spectacular. We are looking for the right piece of land to dictate a house plan to tweak and buy. This plan has been added to my short list. Thanks for asking for input. I enjoyed sharing some thoughts. When you make all the changes you can name the house plan after me. lol Have a good day. PS. Have you ever considered doing detached garage plans that match specific house plans? I make the suggestion for those that may have extra cars, for those that want a man-cave workshop or for storing large yard mowing and trimming equipment. I also like the detached idea for a gathering area for family and friends for summer get-to-gathers or even large holiday parties.

    Would love to see a vanity space in the Master Bathroom. Also a wall oven space on the side of the stove or the fridge would be great too. The house looks really nice!
