The Oliver House Plan 1427:
This Craftsman design offers copious curb-appeal with an angled garage, decorative gables adorned with timber wood accents, a shed dormer, and a column-framed front porch. This floor plans thoughtful layout maximizes its square footage. The kitchen cooktop-island overlooks the great room and the spaces share a cathedral ceiling. A luxury screened porch enjoys a fireplace for year-round enjoyment and is topped with a cathedral ceiling and skylights. The master suite enjoys privacy at the rear of the home and opens to a relaxing porch. A mud room, oversized utility room, and walk-in pantry provide added functionality.
With a front-entry garage and a slim width, this two-story design is ideal for a narrow lot. Arched garage doors add character while a mix of stone, shakes and siding bring dimension to the exterior. Inside, luxury features abound with a drop zone, butler’s pantry and a large storage pantry. Skylights top the rear porch and the master bedroom and bathroom to flood these spaces with natural light. The first floor creates an easy flow between the island kitchen, dining room and great room. The master suite and a bedroom/study are downstairs while two bedrooms and a bonus room complete the second floor.
Luxurious, spa-like bathrooms are growing in popularity and are the perfect space in which to add a touch of elegance. Incorporating elements such as tiled floors, decorative backsplashes, multiple showerheads and freestanding tubs along with fixtures in luxe finishes like polished stainless steel, matte black stainless and champagne can elevate the look of any bathroom space and create a welcoming retreat. Check out some popular bathroom trends!
Linear drains are particularly well suited to more modern bathrooms, including curbless, open plan showers. Not only are these sleek, clean-lined drains aesthetically appealing – creating a seamless, contemporary look – but they are also versatile since they can be located almost anywhere within the shower area.
It’s important to protect your family with properly placed and installed smoke alarms. Remember, smoke alarms are only designed to last 7-10 years. If yours are over 10 years old, it’s time to replace!
Help increase awareness in your community about the life-saving benefits of smoke alarms.
Statistics to share
Three out of five home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms
More than one-third (37 percent) of home fire deaths result from fires in which no smoke alarms are present.
The risk of dying in a home fire is cut in half in homes with working smoke alarms.
A stunning center dormer with Palladian-style window, a cozy, gabled front porch, and a delightful bay window complement the charming facade of this home plan. The Prynwood features the flexibility of a formal dining room as well as a casual breakfast area, both with bay windows, separated by an efficient kitchen. A pass-thru from the kitchen to the vaulted great room with fireplace and built-in bookshelves makes entertaining easy. Located on the first floor, the master suite enjoys a tray ceiling, back porch access, ample closet space, and a private bath. The two upstairs bedrooms are divided by a balcony that overlooks both the foyer and the great room.
