Conceptual house plan 1511 is a one-story design with a split-bedroom layout and open living. 

Conceptual design 1511 is an updated version of The Griffin house plan 535. The exterior is a mixture of board-and-batten and horizontal siding. Rustic influences can be found in the wooden gable brackets, metal accent roof, and the wood-paneling on the garage doors and shutters. A wide front porch creates a welcoming entry.

The foyer offers a coat closets and opens directly to the dining space with a decorative step ceiling with a shiplap-wood inlay. The great room showcases a fireplace and is topped with decorative beams while double doors lead to a screened rear porch. The kitchen provides additional seating with an island bar-top. A pantry is nearby and a window over the sink allows view through an open porch. The two-car garage enters the home through a utility room that can double as a mud room with a closet for coats and bags.

Two bedrooms each have a walk-in closet and share a hall bathroom with dual-sink vanity and a linen closet. The master suite is to the opposite side for privacy and features a tray ceiling. The walk-in closet has a window to bring in natural light and the master bathroom enjoys two sinks, a freestanding bathtub, a walk-in shower, and a linen closet. A bonus room above the garage meets the needs of the homeowner for additional square footage, a guest suite, storage, or recreation.

    I love the floor plan – only thing I felt that should be changed is the width of the family room. Too narrow. Love the deep laundry room though very much!

    I love this floor plan! We have some land in a neighboring state, gorgeous rural, so want to build for a second/vacation home and eventually retire so don’t want it too big, love the square footage size. This house could easily make the exterior modern farmhouse look, love that too. I do love the more modern touches, walk in closets for all bedrooms, closet in master closer to bedroom rather than in the bath area (don’t the clothes get mildewy in the bath area?) and the open concept, including big island in the kitchen with back view. I don’t know if the great room is too tight, but I currently live in an urban area with small rooms, it doesn’t seem to bother me. I live in the north, with snow, all sorts of precipitation and weather changes, and the house would be near a lake, so I would want a wall in the foyer for a bench, storage, hooks for coats/gear/shoes/boots but still want the openness of kitchen and great room, I think this is doable for this design, what do you think?

    This is my favorite open floor plan design at this square footage I have seen so far. I love the stairs to the bonus room being on the side of the other two bedrooms as well as the large laundry room and large 2nd bathroom. The only few concerns I have are as follows: 1. The dining room as well as its step ceiling looks as though it extends into the passage to the bedrooms, this might create an unusual look and separation of space in this area. Could you bump out the dinning room to line up with the bump out on the left side of the house? 2. There are several small bump outs at the front left corner, which looks a little too busy and could be simplified, while also solving the problem of the smaller master closet.

    love how simple and straight forward this plan is. Just worried that the Great room might be too tight in width to kitchen island. would be better if it was wider by a couple feet! (17x17ish). Closet space could be tight in Master as well as sinks could be too close together?? Otherwise love the simplicity on inside layout and outside!!

    I love this plan! This looks like a more economical option build (with the simple shape) and yet it still has all the attractive features like a big laundry room, pantry, even a partial jack/jill-like bath for the kiddos. It also looks like one could possibly flip the Master Bedroom to be closer to the garage and the 2 bedrooms, etc on the other side? That’s my IDEAL floorplan for an “aging in place” home as then the owners are closest to the laundry, etc…

    I really like the plan. I wish you could incorporate the exterior design re: the tub and shower. I think removing the shower window alone might look awkward from the exterior. Perhaps an all-encompassing bump-out for maximum exterior appeal? Otherwise, with the Great Room seating question, I think it is a great design!

  7. Shannon Carter on

    I’m concerned about the seating arrangement in the Great Room. If you put a couch and chairs on either side of the fireplace, seems like you will have difficulty walking from the kitchen to the master bedroom. Can you extend the Great Room into the screen porch area?

      Hi Emmy! Yes, we always offer an optional basement on our plans. That would be in addition to the bonus room, not instead of. But, modifications can always be made if the bonus room is not needed.
