1. Four-Bedroom Craftsman-style Single Story House Plan
I remember how, after I got married, our kids kept coming in twos. By our third twin pregnancy, it became obvious that the single-story one-bedroom house with a double garage wasn’t going to be able to accommodate two more. As matters stood, it had already shrunk and echoed. Finally, I was ready to move, and so too were the kids. But where were we going to get a four-bedroom house from at such short notice or, at best, a four-bedroom craftsman’s house plan to build one from?
Fortunately for the kids and I, thanks to futurist Wifey, after our first pregnancy she had convinced me to buy a four-acre residential plot on which, over the last two years, we had been building our dream home chosen from Home Stratosphere’s four-bedroom craftsman house plans.
Before the big reveal, let me share with you the four-bedroom craftsman house floor plan….
Situated on four acres and coming with a whopping 2,329-square feet of living space, our four-bedroom craftsman house floorplan features a gigantic 22.8 x 23.6-two-car, two-electric door garage for yours truly’s and Wifey’s cars. Actually, sentimental reasons aside, one of the main reasons I had been reluctant to move from our current house had been the awesome double garage housing both my and Wifey’s cars.
So, when we had gone shopping for a four-bedroom craftsman house floor plan in Home Stratosphere, I had made sure we got one with a huge two-car garage. Topping this monster garage is a store-room for all my tools and SUV accessories. A door on the right that’s adjacent to the storeroom door leads outside. In the far right corner of the garage is a door that leads into a short passage with a powder room on the left.
4. Powder Room & Pantry
Ideal for when either Wifey or I (yes, it’s unisex despite the name) come home with nature calling, this small but very important room contains a toilet set and a single hand washbasin. Notably, it also has a small window that opens to a narrow space between the vaulted front porch and the gigantic garage. To the Powder Room’s left is a pantry for all Wifey’s brooms and other house cleaning essentials.
5. Utility Room & Lockers
Straight ahead is the entrance to the kitchen. To the right of the pantry is an 11.0 x 7.4-foot Utility Room for laundry. It has a built-in washing machine and dryer. There is also a place for hanging wet clothes. As you come out of the Utility Room, you pass lockers on your right, as you enter an open-plan kitchen.
6. Open Plan Kitchen and Dining Room
Measuring 8.6 x 17feet, the spacious open-plan kitchen hosts an eating bar facing an arched opening to the left and a fixed counter for a cooktop, with a place for a microwave oven, and refrigerator on either side. Directly in front is a plain but quaint 12 x 12.4-foot dining room with 10-feet high ceilings. To its right, is the most exciting room in the house, the Master bedroom.
7. Master Bedroom, Bathroom, and Closet
At 15.10-feet x 13.6-feet with a ceiling 10-feet high, the Master is neither too big nor too small-its just right. To its right is a door leading into an open-plan Master Bath. The 9.10 x 17.6 Master bathroom comprises a shower cubicle on the extreme left, in the middle, a jet tub with a seat, and an enclosed toilet set in the extreme right corner. Convenient countertops run all along the Master Bathroom-except where they give way to a sizeable 5.8-feet x 14.4 closet.
8. Great Room, Rear Porch, and Vaulted Foyer
Coming out of the Master Bedroom, to your right is the arched opening that’s directly opposite the eating bar. Just beyond it is a Great Room (yea, we fancy like that) measuring 18.0-feet x 18.0-feet with a 10-feet high ceiling. To keep it warm is a fireplace with vented gas logs. Built-ins line the right side of the fireplace.
A door on the extreme right of the Great Room leads out to an enclosed 18.4-feet x 11.6-feet Rear Porch. Across the Great Room, directly opposite the door to the Rear Porch, is an arched opening leading into a 10.0-feet x 10.8-feet foyer with a ceiling that’s 10-feet high. Swinging saloon doors give way to a vaulted section of the Front Porch.
9. Fourth Bedroom and Open Front Porch
Heading back into the Great Room, to the left is an open doorway to the extreme left that leads into a hallway with a nine-foot-high ceiling. This gives the house a slight slant to the immediate right. The doorway’s immediate left gives access to a large 11.0-feet x 11.0-feet fourth bedroom with a ceiling that’s 10-feet high. To the right is a double-door closet and straight ahead is a Redwood double-door leading onto a 22.6-feet x 7.0-feet open Front Porch.
10. Third Bedroom, Hallway, and Second Bathroom
Leaving the Fourth Bedroom and moving along the hallway to your left, a few steps find you at the entrance of a 13.6 x 11.6-feet third bedroom to the left. To the right is a double-door closet. Coming out of the third bedroom and moving along the hallway, one passes the door of the house’s Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning (HVA) systems room. A little further down and you enter the Second Bathroom, comprising two hand-wash basins, a linen cupboard toilet set, and a bathtub with a shower.
11. Second Bedroom
Leaving the Second Bathroom and still moving along the hallway to your left, a few steps find you at the entrance of a 14.0 x 11.0-foot second bedroom. As with the other two previous bedrooms, to its right is a double-door closet.
