If you're looking for a duplex that is comfortable to live in while renting out the other unit, the Krammer is worth consideration.
Each of the units is the size of a standard home, with close to 1,800 square feet of living space along with a two-car garage. The plan is designed for construction on a lot that slopes downhill at the rear, so each unit features an elevated deck off the kitchen, as well as a patio accessed through a sliding glass doors in the family room below.
Centrally placed garages offer a sense of privacy for the entry porches, while double walls provide sound buffering between adjacent bedrooms on both the main and basement floors.
Entering the home you step into a vaulted foyer with a coat closet just inside the door. The foyer ceiling slopes up to its apex at the end of the passageway, then begins sloping down as the space opens out into the dining area and living room.
A bay window brightens and expands the dining area, which is open to the kitchen with only a raised eating bar between. Kitchen features include a walk-in pantry, a sink with a view, and counters on four sides.
The main floor bedroom has a walk-in closet and direct access to the bathroom. A door in the hallway across from the bedroom links with the garage.
Downstairs in each of the units, are two bedrooms, a full-sized utility room, a bathroom, and a family room with fireplace.
