Wood detailed doors are at the two garage door openings, and operable louvered shutters surround the upper windows. From the garage space, two doors open out to the covered porch on the side, which has a private shower area. This comes in handy if you're looking to build near a beach or lake.

An exterior staircase leads you to the upper screened porch – an expansion of the living space, and a great place to enjoy the outdoor scenery. From the porch, you enter a living room with a ceiling that slopes from 9' to a flat ceiling of about 11'6". A breakfast bar separates the living room from the U–shaped kitchen. The kitchen has a pantry in one corner and a closet with a stacking washer/dryer in another. Six windows wrap around the sinks, providing views and plenty of natural light. A pocket door separates the living room from a hallway that accesses two bedrooms, a full bath, and a linen closet. The ceilings are set at 9' on this level.
