The Two Story Small House Floor Plan “Sand Castle”
While recently perusing some of my older floor plans in Flickr, I discovered a slight oversight in one. The 560 sq ft Sand Castle was missing #5 on my must haves list. The washer/dryer was not included for some unknown reason. My first reaction was to place it by the bedroom for convenience but remembering a recent post about offering more side by side choices, I decided to place them in the downstairs ½ bath.
Doing a “virtual” remodel with a few clicks of the mouse in plan-3D “my favorite program” & viola! It’s now complete and ready for all the world to critique. I wish real remodeling was so easy, didn’t even need one Band-Aid or ibuprofen, which I have affectionately named “move free” for this entire project.
The “6 Must Haves” should explain how unique and comfortable this Cozy home design would be to live in either full or part-time.
#1 This very open “L” shaped Galley Kitchen is truly gourmet. It includes 12 cabinets, space for a dishwasher and room for not one but three storage pantry cabinets and lots of countertop area for food prep.
#2 The bedroom has room for a Queen Size mattress with access from both sides, ¾ bath, home office desk are, ample storage for two and a private romantic balcony just perfect for late night stargazing.
#3 The first floor as a ½ Bath and upstairs has a ¾. Adding a standard 5’ tub would not be any trouble so please feel free to contact us if this plan would be even better with one.
#4 Storage areas are primarily in the Kitchen and Bedroom.
#5 Room for the Washer/Dryer is now in the downstairs powder room making moving them in and setting them up much easier than upstairs.
#6 The first floor Space is all about combining comfort and a great layout. With a door off the Kitchen, plus and a sliding French door in the Gathering room, your just steps away from the backyard for entertaining and enjoying the outdoors.
CHP is all about Living Large in a Cozy Home!
Our goal at Cozy Home Plans is to offer the most choices for simple vacation getaways; tiny houses, writer’s retreats, rustic hunting lodges, small country villas, micro studios or the perfect full time cottage… and all under 1000 sq. ft.
This plan also has a similar single story version called the Story Brooke that’s 416 sq ft if you’re not a big stair fan.
