This simple design features a siding and cedar shake exterior. The gables are adorned with decorative brackets and shutters frame the windows. The front porch is accented with columns and a stone skirts adds character. A front entry garage and a narrower width make this design neighborhood friendly.
Just inside the foyer, a coat closet is available for guests. The dining room is open and defined by columns. The great room features a fireplace and built-in shelves and shares a cathedral ceiling with the kitchen. Rear doors exit to a deck and patio. The kitchen centers around an island and skylights provide overhead light while a window over the sink opens the view. A pantry is nearby for storage and the utility room can be accessed through a barn door to keep messes contained. A sun tunnel brings natural light to the utility room. Storage with built-in shelves can be found in the garage and a built-in seat and linen closet are just inside the garage entry for an easy drop-off zone for coats, bags, and shoes.
The master suite is a true retreat with a cathedral ceiling, two skylights, and direct access to the rear deck. Two walk-in closets and a dual-sink vanity are perfect for couples and a walk-in shower completes the luxurious master bathroom. Two additional bedrooms are to the opposite side of the floor plan and share a bathroom with a double-sink vanity.

When I began my career at Donald Gardner Architects, I never dreamed that one day I would be building my own Gardner home. About two years ago my husband Bryon and I began looking for a house to purchase. Our wish list may have been a bit ambitious because nothing we found met our expectations. One night while out on a walk with our dog, Bryon said to me, “you know, you look at house plans all day, maybe we should build one”. The thought had never crossed my mind. Did I even want to build a house? It was an exciting and intimidating possibility.
I came to work the next day with a new perspective. If I were to pick a Gardner plan, which one would fit our needs? Our house search came up empty, mostly because we wanted 10+ acres of land and our home style is very contemporary (see mention of ambitious wish list above!). Building gave us the possibility to have both and it suddenly became very clear that yes, we did want to build a house.
We are excited to document our planning and home building process of The Northwood home plan in this personal “Rendering to Reality” series. Check back soon for updates!
