This 2 story gambrel house plan is designed to maximize your passive solar gain to deliver energy savings. Orient the "solar side" to the south to take advantage of all the windows.
The entry is located off the front porch. From the foyer, you'll enjoy views shooting through to the back of the home.
The kitchen has lots of counter space and a service counter gives you room for company while you cook. More formal meals can be served in the light-filled formal dining room and casual eats in the breakfast nook.
Note the mudroom, a great space that helps minimize clutter in the main portion of the house. It comes with cubbies and a drop table with a recharge center. One more nice touch: a built-in recycling center accessible from side entry and the garage.
The bedrooms are all upstairs, as is the laundry to add to your convenience. The maser has a huge dressing closet with his and her sides to it.
