Sunny Contemporary Prairie-Style Home
3,353 Sq. Ft.
This beautifully proportioned contemporary Prairie-style home sits confidently on its site. Strong, clean lines and a simple geometry speak to the modern influence. Big sunny windows and ample decks connect the open floor plan to the outside, with a large wood trellis on the patio offering protection from the sun. Each of the four bedrooms has its own full bathroom. The main floor is divided into the more formal visitor’s side and the casual family wing. Here, the kitchen includes a built-in desk, handy for checking email, and a uniquely shaped island large enough for four people to eat. The ground floor bedroom serves as a great home office, guest, or in-law room. Sun-tubes pour daylight down the grand central stair. On the second floor, a catwalk looks down into the dining room. On one end sit two secondary bedrooms and a bonus room that would make a great study. With plenty of privacy on the other end, the large master has vaulted ceilings, a private balcony, a walk-in closet, and a five piece bath.
When oriented properly, this home is designed to take advantage of passive solar energy, with large windows and properly sized overhangs and shading devices. Roof surfaces are also arranged to hold solar electric panels. This plan is offered with either ICF (insulated concrete form) or conventional 2x6 wall framing. A faux-chimney can be used to house and camouflage an evaporative cooler as well as all mechanical room venting. The plan comes with a bonus “Green Specifications” sheet that helps you make this home extra energy and resource efficient. A full basement/walk-out option is also available. Giant window wells make the basement a sunny, pleasant space.
