As you come off the covered front porch, you enter a foyer that is open to the great room straight ahead. Timber posts and beams accentuate the vaulted wood ceiling above, and a curved 7'–high wall anchored by two timber posts hides the laundry area while making the room feel more intimate. Located just to the right of the foyer is a large coat closet and a powder room, while to the left there is a lovely reading area surrounded by windows just behind a wood–burning stove with a hearth topped by shelving.

The ceiling in the great room rises to 16', giving the room a feeling of spaciousness. This house was designed for a side view, so the outer wall of the great room is composed mostly of glass windows and sliding doors. The open kitchen faces the great room at a 45–degree angle. It features a large center island with an eating bar and two smallish pantries at each corner.

A short hallway from the great room leads past the stairs to the master suite. The master bedroom has a walk–in closet and sliding glass doors facing the "view". The bathroom arrangement for this master suite is quite original. The bedroom is open to the sinks, which are located next to a private shower and toilet room, and a large soaking tub is located in a spa alcove in the corner of the bedroom beneath windows to the same view.

As you go up the stairs, there is a window seat at the landing with natural light from the window above. Upstairs, there is a full bath, a bedroom, and a family/den with a door to a private deck. The ceiling in the family room rises to 13' down the middle of the room, and there is a sleeping nook for bunk beds. From the bedroom, a removable ladder goes to an upper loft for extra sleeping or storage space.

Although this home was designed with ICF (Rastra recycled–foam concrete) walls, it can be easily changed to 2x6 stud walls by your builder or design professional. Be sure to confirm this with your builder prior to purchasing the plans.
