Forward-looking homeowners want rooms that can do double duty. This is very true and something that we get asked about all the time. It is so popular that one of our plans (the Carrington #6892) was highlighted in a recent Wall Street Journal article about double duty rooms.
The author of that piece (Cecilie Rohwedder), discusses a recently custom designed home by Dan Sater. Dan’s client (the Stolarskis) needed the added flexibility a well designed double duty room can offer.
The Carrington is one of our most popular and favorite plans. Beyond the great wrap around porch, the Carrington offers an office/bonus room on the second floor. Because it has its own private bath, it can be a secluded office or a well appointed 4th bed room.
As Cecilie Rohwedder’s article points out, designers and builders are seeing a resurgence in a demand for more flexible-living spaces. The younger buyers see the flex rooms as a way to customize their homes. Leaving the labels off spaces in a home helps with sales and resales because it lets buyers assign their own.
Beyond having the very desirable flexible room, the Carrington is great for narrow lots. With a width of just 38 feet this house plan can fit on almost any lot. It is no wonder that this plan is so popular. We are very pleased that the Stolarskis are enjoying their new home and we hope they continue to do so for many more years.
If you are interested in a house plan with flexible spaces or if you are interested in having Dan Sater custom design a home just for you, please let us know. We would be more than happy to help you find your dream home.
