Economical home doesn't compromise on amenities
Front-facing gables and a small covered porch add curb appeal to the Evanston, a small home that doesn't feel small at all inside. This economical plan is well suited to the needs of first-time home buyers, empty nesters, or singles -- anyone looking for a compact, easy-care home with plenty of contemporary amenities.
The entire center of the house is vaulted. Ceilings sweep up from the front of the dining room and the rear of the living room to an apex at the center. Sliding glass doors open on a wide deck. This large room is open to the kitchen as well. Standing at the kitchen sink, you face into the living area across a long eating bar.
Designed for efficiency, the galley kitchen allows you to accomplish cooking and cleaning tasks with a minimum of footwork. Stove, sink and refrigerator are set in a tight triangle, with counter space in between. Utilities are also close at hand, across the small hallway that leads to the secondary bedrooms so it's easy to tend the laundry while you're working in the kitchen.
A dual-compartment bathroom, close to the bedrooms, eases the conflicts between family members who like long baths and those who enjoy extensive mirror use.
The Evanston's master suite is large for a small home. A vaulted ceiling expands the sleeping area and sliding glass doors provide access to the deck. His-'n'-hers closets flank the passageway to a private bathroom outfitted with dual vanities. Light filters in through glass blocks to naturally illuminate the walk-in shower.
