Creatingthe Not So Big House

This home is a slightly modified version of our popular Field of Dreams plan. The original home is featured in the highly acclaimed book, "Creating The Not So Big House." Like the original, this house looks like it belonged to the land in its agrarian past. Its form revives the simplicity and good proportions of classic farmhouses seen across the farmland of the Midwest.

The detached 2–car garage from the original has been attached to the house where the entry had originally been located, and the mudroom is now conveniently located between the garage and the kitchen. It has also been enlarged and reconfigured. The main entry is off the large porch next to the screened porch. Once inside the foyer, there is a living room to the right with a central fireplace that is wrapped on three sides by built–in bookshelves. The fireplace is strictly optional, and without it the living room becomes substantially larger. The wall and cabinetry separating the living room and dining room are also optional, if you prefer a more open floor plan. Oversized double hung windows flood the interior with sunlight. The library is now bigger than the original, and has a closet added. The kitchen is a good size, with a pantry and a large center island, and it is open to the dining area.

Upstairs, there are 2 bedrooms that share a full bath, a laundry room that was located in the basement of the original, and a master bedroom suite. Unlike the original version, the master bath is enlarged, and opens into the spacious walk–in closet for easy access.

Please Note
The length of the library is measured to the closets – if measured to the doors the room is 15'3".
