Free House Plan: Dream Retirement Design

Though this 1,000 square foot cottage would work fine for a small family, in my mind, it was always one of the very best designs I had ever done for a couple in retirement or for a child free couple. What makes it ideal is the position of the master bedroom set entirely (privately) away from the extra bedroom, essentially giving whoever owns and lives in this home their own real escape if they ever do have a guest (or maybe grand kids?) visiting. With two bathrooms any guests staying would essentially have their own bathroom as well. Though this is certainly a small home I think it works well when it comes to flow, fully pulling the outdoors in and utilizing all east, west and southern facing walls with a ton of windows for light. (Because I live in Minnesota I most definitely keep the windows to a minimum on the north wall because of winter winds.)

What really makes this free house plan special though is the wrap around kitchen into the closet/laundry room. At first they were two separate rooms but I played around with removing the wall separating them and then just flowed the counter top right around the corner into even more storage. It is my favorite aspect of this design and I think it works incredibly well, packing as much space into a small space as possible without, in fact, making it feel small! There’s a lot of storage here too with the master bedroom boasting a huge walk in closet as well as the extra bedroom boasting its own closet and a hallway closet for linens. Thanks for coming by guys!
