An 8'–deep deck wraps from the front of the house all the way around the great room. The front door opens to the spacious great room. This room features a dramatic ceiling that rises to a lofty 20' in the center. In addition to the tall glazed wall, there's a large picture window facing the rear that would be an ideal spot for a dining room table.

The original homeowners placed a wood–burning stove in the great room to help heat the living areas of the house. However, since there is no living area above the great room, you could place a wood–burning stove – or a fireplace, anywhere you wish. An ideal spot for a fireplace would be on the windowless wall facing front, as it could then be enjoyed from the kitchen, the dining area, and the greatroom.

The kitchen is located next to the great room, and is open to it. Three doors in the kitchen area open to the (optional) basement, the bedroom, and a full bath that doubles as a guest bathroom.

Stairs at the entryway lead up to a very large loft area with a peaked ceiling. This area looks down at the great room, and enjoys the same views through the upper windows.

The optional basement may hold additional bedrooms if needed, storage, a cellar, and a laundry/utility room.
