The designers assumed an appreciation for openness and a love of the outdoors in creating this informal contemporary home plan. Basically it's a vaulted hexagonal great room with two wings. Panoramic views are everywhere, and from the kitchen sink you can also keep your eye on the great room, deck, and beyond.

Open McKinley optimizes outdoor views
The McKinley is designed to take full advantage of a view to the rear. You can enjoy watching foliage go through seasonal changes from the vaulted great room, either of the sleeping areas, or outside on the wide wrap-around deck.
Basically, this informal plan is a hexagon with two wings and a columned porch at center. Windowed on three sides, the great room is the brightest area, serving the functions of dining room, living room and family room.
The McKinley's designers assumed that families building a home based on this plan would have an appreciation for openness and a love of the outdoors. Standing at the kitchen sink here, you can keep your eye on everything in the great room, as well as the deck and beyond. And you can get to the deck through sliders in the dining room, living room and master suite.
Storage is ample throughout. Two closets flank the entry and another large walk-in closet is to the right, as you head into the great room. Both of the bedrooms also have walk-in closets, and the garage is extra deep as well.
When the weather turns nasty, you can build a fire in the living room, in the sitting area of the master suite, or both. Other amenities in the master suite include the huge walk-in closet and a bathroom with double vanity, spa tub, shower, and separately enclosed toilet. The other bedroom also has a walk-in closet and private bath.
A pass-through utility room connects the garage to the interior of the McKinley, and the powder room is close to everything.
