Cedar shakes mix with siding and stone to create a richly textural Craftsman exterior. This floor plan is ideal for large or growing families with open living spaces making it easy to be together. The master suite and a bedroom/study are downstairs while three large bedrooms with walk-in closets are upstairs. A second-floor pocket office is a great space for children to complete homework or projects and a bonus room provides additional square footage for recreation or storage.

The best of both worlds – City living with an Urban Homestead!
If you love the convenience of Urban or Suburban living, but want to be able to supplement your family’s food, an urban homestead or hobby farm may be the perfect solution. Living in the city offers many advantages. You are closer to entertainment and will likely have a shorter commute to work. However, a smaller yard may have you thinking it’s not possible to grow your own vegetables or raise your own chickens. While some neighborhoods will restrict these activities, (check your HOA guidelines!) many are becoming open to the idea of small scale farming. The idea of “farm-to-table” living is gaining popularity and with that comes the desire to provide your own food or share within a community. Neighborhoods are popping up that offer community gardens where neighbors work together to grow a garden and then share the crops. If you don’t live in the country and your neighborhood doesn’t provide a community garden, you can still create an urban homestead in your backyard.
