Though we have designed and built many large homes, we also have a particular fondness for the basics --- simplicity and humility. In our previous post titled The Gathering Place, where we previewed a new large log home design of ours, wherein we noted "We have designed and built many small, humble cottages for some such needs, and these cottages have always been real favorites of ours."
In respect to that sentiment we thought it most fitting to honor that statement with a smaller design for our next offering, thus our newest creation we call The Getaway.
The Getaway plan occupies a very modest footprint of only 36' in width and 41'-7" in depth, including it's 3 sided wrap around porch. With a blend of New England Cape Cod styling and colorization, and rustic timber beamery, this little plan is simply charming and quaint. And in a manner in which many historical cottages and small cabins have been designed and built, our design effort included a focus on the essentials, with less excess, more practicality and affordability. Through it all this plan still yields 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 2 open kitchen, dining, and living room areas. Total finished size of all three levels combined is 1,946 square foot, and a little over 600 square foot of covered porch.
Additionally, we have specified Hardie Board board & batten vertical masonry siding and Hardie's soffit and trim materials for the exterior of this home. Carlisle Stone Hearth pre-finished plank wood flooring, Behr Premium Plus stains and paint, natural cut stone, timber and cable wire deck railings, and many other exceptional materials help complete the substantial list of quality amenities.
For an ideal "weekender" vacation escape, or for a very nice starter or "empty nester" home, The Getaway is sure to deliver on spatial needs and exceptional curb appeal.
