This home by Robert Gerloff was featured in "The New Cottage Home" by Taunton Press. The simple and straight forward design allow it to fit into nearly any setting, and also keeps construction costs down.

Covered porches stretch along the entire front of the house, providing entry to both the great room and a mudroom area. The main entry has an airlock for use in very cold or hot weather. Just beyond it is the dramatic great room, with a ceiling that rises from 12'6" at the edges to 16' in the middle. There is a centrally located fireplace that also faces the open kitchen, and a door next to it leads to a lovely sunroom.

The kitchen includes an island and a small pantry. Beyond it there is a laundry and a mudroom with a door leading to the 2–car garage. Stairs to the left of the refrigerator lead up a half level to the master suite. The master bedroom has an 11' ceiling, and a door to a private balcony at the rear of the house, while the bath area includes a walk–in closet, two separate sinks, both a tub and a shower, and a private toilet.

Other stairs lead down one half level to two small bedrooms that share a full bath, while the majority of this lower level was left unfinished.

Foundation Info
This unique split–level home has a slab foundation under the two bedrooms, bath and closet area (beneath the master suite on the upper level); a basement under the great room and entry; and crawlspaces under the front porch and the sun room. This will be easier to visualize if you look at the house cross–section displayed with the floor plans.
