Whether your view lot overlooks a river or lake or is wrapped in a mountain or forest sense, the McKinley is a contemporary house plan that will take in the view as much as you do. From nearly every room in this one story house plan, you can watch the season roll through your favorite views.
Centered around causal living, the McKinley is basically a hexagon with two wings and a cozy covered porch. At the heart of this home is an open, vaulted great room that is filled with windows on three sides and combines the dining room, living room, kitchen.
Designed for those with a love of the outdoors, the view out the back can be appreciated even while standing at the kitchen sink. On cheery summer evenings, it is easy to extend the dining and lounging to the deck through the two sliding glass doors. One in the dining room the other on the opposite side of the vaulted great room in the living room. And when the days get a little shorter and darker the corner fireplace in the living room will keep the McKinley house plan feeling warm and cozy.
The left wing on the home is filled with a half bathroom, small pass-through utility room, bedroom suite, and two car garage. The dual suites in this plan make it an ideal choice for families looking to build and share a vacation home. This room is richly windowed, has a generous walk-in closet along with a private full bathroom with dual sinks. It is spacious enough that if lived in year round, guests staying in this room may never leave.
On the opposite side of this vacation home plan, is the owners' suite. A retreat in of its self, the owners' suite boasts a private fireplace and sitting room and sliding doors to the deck along with a large walk-in closet and private bathroom with soaking tub and dual sinks.
The large, wrap-around deck provides ample space for those who love to incorporate outdoor living and entertaining into their homes. The possibilities here are endless.
