I spoke with two people who were kind enough to share their time and insights: Echo Jones, 31, Sales & Marketing Assistant at Donald A. Gardner Architects, Inc., who (together with her husband) is in the process of building a new home and her home builder Todd Usher, who is also president of Addison Homes (addison-homes.com), a home building company located in Greenville, South Carolina.

The Lincoln plan is a two-story Farmhouse with a modern twist. This design is well suited for a narrow lot thanks to a front entry garage and judicious use of the second floor. The first floor is designed for efficiency with a mud room, pantry and bedroom/study. The living spaces are ideal for entertaining with a stunning dining room, a spacious island kitchen and a luxury screened porch with fireplace. The master suite is upstairs, and the true star of this design is the master closet that opens to the utility room. Two additional bedrooms and two full bathrooms complete this family friendly design.
