Right off the pages of a storybook, the Gaillon 1 is a picturesque cottage style house plan. The high pitched roof, arched windows, and wrapped covered porch gives it a quaint, welcoming feel to this small house plan.
The main entrance is on the side of the house and enters into a mudroom-style foyer. With room for a bench seat to remove muddy shoes and room to hang winter jackets, this room will help keep the rest of the home clean. In case a more thorough clean is needed, through the interior entrance and to the right is the first-floor bathroom. Straight ahead is the first bedroom and to the left is the living space.
The open, casual living space is a great area to relax or to gather the family. The kitchen is well-equipped and has room for a dining table at the center. At the end of the kitchen are elegant double doors leading to the wrap-around porch. This enables the occupants to let some of the outdoors in or easy access to enjoy an outdoor meal. Just off the kitchen is the family room. The openness allows for conversations to be had throughout the whole space. At the back of the family room are the stairs to the second floor.
The second floor includes a loft that is open to the family room downstairs. This loft could be a workspace, playspace, reading nook, or even a bunk room. It can transform into whatever the space is needed for. Also upstairs is a second full bath and bedroom. This bedroom is larger than the one downstairs and includes a walk-in closet.
