This small but still comfortable Modern Country House is a great option for a small and practical family. It features a main gathering area as the heart of the house. Also, we designed it to enjoy the views from the backyard. Even more, we added a large Covered Patio out of that gathering space to enjoy the outdoor living.

Firstly, when you face the house, you will find a tall double gable. It emphasizes the main area inside, also defining the main entrance to the house. That Main Entrance is crowned by a gable and framed by white columns, beautiful trim work, and beams. Windows and a half glassed door give the see-through effect that lets us see the backyard through the great room when standing at the front door.

That covered entrance leads us straight to the main area. The Foyer is seamlessly incorporated into the Great Room. So, when we get it, we start to enjoy the open space. The Great Room is displayed vertically from the main entrance to the patio view. It lets the natural light coming in from the Covered Patio, which is facing south.

The Great Room opens to the Covered Patio through gorgeous french doors that allow us to connect the indoor and outdoor spaces. That space is large enough to accommodate furniture options. We also have an outdoor cooking area covered in there.

The Kitchen has a straight-line layout. It displays a Walk-in Pantry, the gas range in the middle, and a refrigerator on the opposite side. There is also a Center Island that allows stool chairs for four people, a sink, and an under-counter Microwave.

The Private Spaces are not particularly large. In fact, this house only has two bedrooms and an office. We have a Full Bathroom shared by the studio, the bedroom. Also, invites can use that bathroom as a powder room from the Great Room.

This house has a 2 car garage with access to the backyard. It also has access to the Mud Room, which we integrated with the Laundry Room.

Finally, on the Exterior, we went with traditional white Board & Batten. All the framing and doors are black with white casings. It brings accents all around the house. We went with a dark shingle roof that gives that modern and slick appeal to the house. A detailed trim work shows all around the house as accents and remembrance of the traditional Farmhouse that inspired us.
