Conceptual House Plan 1480

Leave us your feedback and suggestions at the bottom of this post!

Conceptual house plan 1480 is an updated version of The Ryley plan 503. The exterior mixes horizontal siding with vertical and a metal roof dormer brings extra light to the great room. The garage is attached and moved forward, and offers a storage closet and shelving unit.

The great room is a cozy space with built-in bookshelves and a fireplace. The open dining room is defined by a tray ceiling and a low wall with bookshelves on the opposite side. A kitchen peninsula provides additional seating for casual meals and a pantry is nearby for storage. Living extends to the outdoors with a spacious screened porch and small rear deck.

The master suite features a generous bedroom, walk-in closet designed for two, a linen closet, and a bathroom with a double vanity and a standing shower.  Two additional bedrooms share a full bathroom. Notable amenities include a plant deck – perfect for a container garden, and a drop zone for keeping coats, bags and shoes organized.

    Love the exterior look of the house. Where could a basement stairs be situated? I would leave off the screen porch since it would face east on our lot, and so don’t see the need. Doesn’t look like anyone can stand at the sink while the dishwasher is open – I’d want to change that.

      Hi Marya, we usually try to add the basement staircase by the garage but we haven’t determined the best location in this design yet since it’s still a conceptual design. Thank you for the feedback on the dishwasher!

    I love the exterior. Truly classically homey. The smaller bedroom and bath layout seems great. The great room dining room and kitchen all work well together. I question the lack or a large window in the master bedroom. If there is a screened porch I would say that the view out the back would be good enough for a nice sized master bedroom window. Thus the bed would go on the other large wall. smaller windows like the ones on the back master bedroom wall could be added to this wall.
    The plant deck / drop zone I think could be reworked into a greenhouse / drop zone and the drop zone area could use a door to the side yard which could be a garden or dog run. The storage area in the garage with the window seems like a waste as it will only catch flies and have to be cleaned all the time.
    Over all I do like the house. These are just my ideas for it.

    I like this plan – with a few changes. I’d skip the closet in the dining room to allow a wall for a hutch, increasing the size of the pantry while decreasing the width of the bedroom closet. I agree with Debbi S, and don’t care for the awkward space between the garage and laundry. I’d suggest enclosing the plant deck, removing the low book shelves, while adding bookshelves on the short walls next to the drop zone and garage – creating a cozy and quiet reading alcove. THANK YOU for placing the master bathroom shower on the interior wall. It’s much warmer there.

    I think I like most of the layout and I do like the exterior and a shed roof is a favorite of mine. My focus is on the laundry room/drop zone/porch and hallway coming in from garage. We designed our house with a laundry I very much enjoy. I am not a fan of the plant deck, but I would see it as a doggie deck with french doors to outside. I would also put in a POCKET door (with a window) in the laundry room; we need all the space we can get.

    I think maybe if you can redesign this laundry/hall space it will function better. I so enjoy having a “large” laundry that I don’t feel hemmed in and I enjoy having the double french doors in our space that lets in lots of light and leads to a small porch out to the small fenced in yard area for the dog. I need and want a door from the laundry to the outside, mostly for our dog and visiting dogs. Also, being able to take out and bring in the dog in an enclosed (hallway door closed) space means I can dry off a wet dog or clean off muddy paws (she digs) before she blasts into the house. Just a thought. …
