Compact Jerico goes beyond the basics
The Jerico is a small (1500+ square foot) house that covers all the basics, and then some. Stepped windows, a brick planter and multiple rooflines add eye appeal to the ranch-style exterior. Economical to build and easy to maintain, the single-level Jerico is well-suited to the needs of young families or retirees.
Gathering spaces in this three-bedroom plan include a living room, a dining room, and a family room. Wide windows in the dining room and living room face the street. Both of these rooms are naturally bright, and the ceiling in the living room is vaulted which gives it a sense of spaciousness. The vaulted family room is bright as well. It has two windows on one side and wide sliders at the rear. A long plant shelf spans the opposite side of the room.
Outside there is a deck that is ideal for outdoor dining. Most of the deck is covered. A long eating bar joins kitchen and family room. Appliances are built in, and utilities are tucked in an alcove that's close to both kitchen and garage. Direct access from garage to kitchen is convenient for carrying in groceries.
The master suite has his-'n'-hers closets, one of them a walk-in. Guess who gets the larger one? Other amenities here include deck access and a private bathroom with dual vanity and a large shower.
Secondary bedrooms in the Jerico are identical, thus eliminating arguments about who gets the better room. Linen and storage closets flank the doors, while the small bathroom across the hall is outfitted with a combination tub and shower.
