Choices in Sustainability
Option 4 - Expanded Plan


The expanded plan adds a library on the first floor. French doors into the living room can allow both rooms to be used simultaneously or separately depending on the occasion. A screened porch off the dining room provides a protected place for eating or relaxation. The greenhouse/solarium area can be used for food production, flowers, and/or relaxation.



First floor living space: 1,548 square feet.










On the second floor dormers can be added for more space, light, and ventilation.

Second floor living space: 1,000 square feet

A third floor can be unfinished attic, a home office, playroom, exercise room, or spare bedroom. The soaring ceiling and opportunity for views make the third floor one of the nicest spaces in the home.

Third floor living space: 408 square feet

Total living space: 2,956 square feet
