Original: The Bosworth Plan #1328

Craftsman Rendering of The Bosworth - House Plan 1328

A mix of cedar shakes and stone paired with a gabled roofline and metal accents, the original rendering is a picture-perfect Craftsman charmer.

Craftsman Rendering of The Bosworth - House Plan 1328

A blend of stone and stucco give a European-inspired feel to this exterior, along with a hipped roof, clipped gables, and a dramatic sweeping gable.

This 3 bedroom floor plan features a single dining space facing rear views, open living spaces, volume ceilings, and walk-in closets for each bedroom. Outdoor living space is abundant, and the two car garage includes extra storage space. Check out the original and modified layouts below and see if you can spot all the differences!

    Nope. Now you have to walk all the way around and through the kitchen every time you go through the house. Leave the open walk through and still have a pantry closet.

    It’s ok, but I cannot fathom the mindset of putting the laundry on the front of the house with a window on the porch! Other than that, bravo!

    What a change! Great utilization of the space!! As the kitchen is the heart of the house, it really flows well!! Absolutely love the walk in functionality of the pantry! Great work!!

    I really like the original Bosworth plan. The hallway connecting the master bedroom to the foyer and children’s bedrooms is absolutely essential. Why make traffic go around through the kitchen and great room? Access to a bonus room over the garage is a nice feature of the modified plan. I would keep the original kitchen layout since I really like the island. The children’s bathroom tends to be too crowded in both plans. Picture parents helping young children get ready for bed.

    Like the original best overall, but like the screen porch move and large master shower on the modified. Would never put the pantry where it is on modified. It causes too much “cut through the kitchen” foot traffic. I also would probably make the dining room 2 feet larger, move the closet in bedroom/study so that the bath could have larger sink area. Would like bonus room over garage.

    I like the original much better. The only way to get to the master bedroom and laundry room , in the modified , is through the kitchen. Absolutely not.

    I much prefer the modified design. I don’t like open concept so I would add more wall between the kitchen and living room. And I would make the screen porch a sun room.

    We are crazy about the Bosworth but will move the closet for the middle bedroom to make the hall bath larger with a double vanity. We will also open the kitchen wall to provide an oversized island and place the fridge along the pantry wall. LOVE this layout!

    i never ever ever ever like a bath not on an outside wall so you can have a window for light and ventilation, no matter how small !!!
