Its low-pitched roof with deeply overhanging eaves, and a front facade that emphasizes horizontal lines mark this as a prairie-style house plan. But the interior is clearly contemporary. It even has four bathrooms. Standing at the kitchen sink you are next to the nook and can look out across the long raised eating bar into a great room with a fireplace.
Construction is complete on the Camas house plan we’ve been following on the home plan blog. The clients have moved into their home over the 4th of July weekend. We invite you to take the photo tour of the completed home.

Abundant natural light washes into the vaulted and spacious great room that forms the core of this home. Shelves fill one wall, while a gas fireplace nestles into a front corner. The kitchen, too, is vaulted, and bounded by a diagonal eating bar/counter. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms fill the left wing.

In this Cape Cod-style beach cottage, the main floor is one flight up from ground level. The vaulted living room is open to the dining room, which is linked to the kitchen. Glass sparkles across most of the rear wall, so these joined areas are both bright and spacious. The vaulted owners’ suite boasts a large bathroom with a deep soaking tub and walk-in closet.
The Camas house plan (now known as the Dogwood) is complete! The happy couple moved into their Craftsman style home over the 4th of July holiday. "We really enjoyed the construction process and making this a home for us with our own personal touches. The crew from Gansen Construction were both professional and fun", said Mrs. C.
The couple modified the original design to accommodate the lot, trim construction costs, and accommodate their living style. Changes included a full mirror reverse, adding french doors in the foyer accessing the bedroom which will be used as a music room, modifying the owners' suite bathroom and walk-in closet area, and pulled the front of the house forward and straightened out the rear wall of the house. The new spin-off version of this design will soon be released as the Dogwood.
