This Country home works well for narrower lots, with its front-entry garage. The efficient floor plan features open living spaces, creating an easy flow from room to room. Storage is thoughtfully placed throughout the home, including a kitchen pantry, to keep everything organized. The large screened porch is a relaxing outdoor retreat with a fireplace, skylights, and a stunning cathedral ceiling.

This is the third Donald Gardner home plan that the Carters have built and they plan for it to be their forever home. The homeowner states, “it is important to love the space where you live.  Hopefully, this will be our retirement home, so we are pouring a great deal of thought into every material”. They are working with real estate agency, Buy Coastal Real Estate. In this Rendering-to-Reality story, we will follow the construction process from breaking ground to move in ready! Check back often for updates as the dream home plan progresses!

Mixed materials give a rustic feel to this angled floor plan. Inside, coffered and tray ceilings add visual interest and abundant rear windows bring in light. The large island kitchen has a view of the great room and single dining room, a walk-in pantry, and nearby e-space for looking up recipes. Both the utility room and garage offer extra storage and convenient outdoor access. Perfect for relaxation, this plan includes a master bedroom sitting area, rear porch with skylights, and striking octagonal screen porch with fireplace.
