In this country-style home, a two-story entry opens out into one large gathering space that fills the entire right side of the ground floor, front to back. Counters and cabinets wrap around three sides of the step-efficient C-shaped kitchen, maximizing work space and storage capacity. The owners' suite is on the ground floor, and three more bedrooms are above.
Designed as a vacation retreat, this cabin home plan has a small footprint and blends easily into a natural setting. Its covered porch and deck offer plenty of outdoor living space as well, spanning the front and one full side. A lofty vaulted ceiling expands the great room, nook and kitchen. Upstairs is an unfinished bonus room and deck.
