Gothic 1084 & 1373

1,084 square foot compact house interior

About the plan

This is a modern take on a common Gothic style house seen in various incarnations on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and throughout the US. Whereas smaller versions of this traditional layout tend to be chopped up into small rooms, we wanted to see how an open floorplan sensibility might look. The result works nicely for a couple of practically any age that doesn’t mind stairs. The second floor can be configured for either a home office or a second bedroom, and the house can easily expand over time to accommodate a growing family. Study Plans and Construction Plans detail out a rear addition with a single-car garage on the first floor and second floor living space, expanding the house to 1,373 sq.ft. The extra room can be a master suite with full bath or a multi-purpose room, depending on your needs. The addition can be built during initial construction or added on years later.
