Modern House Plan 4

This house was designed to take advantage of beautiful views across Oregon's wine country from the Eola Hills.  It is also a dramatic downsizing for the client, building only that what is necessary while still providing the spacious feel of their previous house.  Two bedroom suites flank either side a a two story high living area that opens to a wide terrace overlooking vineyards on one side, and into a wind protected walled courtyard on the other.  Providing an extension of floor space and that indoor/ outdoor living experience.

A connecting corridor with laundry, abundant closets and storage provides separation and privacy for the Master Bedroom, especially when guests are staying in the second bedroom suite.  Low lineal windows allow enjoyment of the wide angle valley views from beds of both bedrooms.

A second floor Loft provides a higher vantage point for the stunning views and will be used as a home office and media area.  While this would not be considered a "Tiny House" at 1,450 sf, it does reflect the minimum needed by this client for an efficient home that will be comfortable and easy to maintain.
