The fun and charismatic Tradewind is a cottage style house plan suited as a vacation house plan or year-round home. The skinny, tall nature of the design allows the home to sit on a narrow lot while still taking advantage of the beach or lakeside views.
A covered porch adorns the front of the house, making a relaxing area to enjoy the outdoors and greet the passing neighbors. The front door opens into the great room style living area. A fireplace is on the far wall, and enjoyable from the living, dining, and kitchen. The kitchen includes a long peninsula with an eating bar. The dining room also has a sliding door leading out to an extensive patio, great for entertaining, outdoor meals, and family gatherings.
At the back of the dining room is a drop zone style entry coming in from the two-car garage, to keep an organized and clean entrance into the house. The garage has a rear entrance for ally access.
