About the plan

Inspired by the arts and crafts movement of the early 20th century, this home should look familiar to most folks living in North America. With this aesthetic back in style, this house will fit in with an established neighborhood or on a new lot equally well. This modest version is intended as a starter home for a young couple, with a pre-planned addition to allow starting a family and to facilitate aging in place. There are multiple layout options on both floors that allows for customization to suit the owner’s tastes.
