Coming off the covered entryway, you enter a mudroom with storage cubbies and a window with room for a bench below it on the right, a line of hooks for coats on the wall straight ahead, and built–in cabinets on the wall opposite the cubbies. One door opens to a walk–in pantry with a unique pass–thru to a kitchen counter, while another opens to the living spaces.

As you enter, there's a hallway to bedroom 2 and a 3/4 bath that doubles as a powder room on the right, and just beyond the hall are the stairs to the upper level. Straight ahead is the kitchen with a large center island, and four windows above the sink and oven for natural light and views.

The dining area is right next to the kitchen. It features an angled ceiling that descends from 12' to 8' at the outer wall, and three large windows provide views to the side. Double doors open to the screened porch. Positioned between the dining and living rooms is a beautiful wooden frame filled with glass panels. The living room has a rustic looks and feel, with handsome wood beams in the ceiling and a large fireplace with a stone veneer. This room features a 10' ceiling, and the three outer walls are lined with windows, along with a pair of glazed doors that open out to the screened porch. The screened porch is 35' wide and 12' deep, providing plenty of room for social gatherings.

The bedroom and bunkroom from the original design have been replaced by a single bedroom that does not extend beyond the lines of the living room, reducing the overall width of the house from 44' to just 32'. The bedroom has grouped windows on both outer walls for light, views, and ventilation, and a pair of doors that open to the living room and the stairs to the lower level.

The couple's realm – referred to as a "garret" in the plans – occupies the upper level. The ceiling has a 3–foot–wide flat center section running front to back that's set at 10', sloping down to 7' along the dormer side, and 5'6" on the opposite wall. A built–in bench sits below 5 windows facing to the side, and 3 other windows provide views to the front. There's a large fireplace to warm the space and delight the eyes, a closet at the top of the stairs, and a full bath with a trio of windows next to it.

If you choose to build the basement level, it's designed to have a bedroom with a walk–in closet and a bath, a large and open family room with (or without) a fireplace, and a laundry/mechanical room.
