Compact Camas has large gathering space

By
From page HS10 | July 19, 2013 |

The Camas makes an ideal starter home, but might be equally attractive to retirees wishing to minimize their home care responsibilities. Its compact size makes it economical to build and maintain. Classic Craftsman features set it apart from most other contemporary ranch-style homes.

Shake-textured shingles add visual appeal to the framed-out bases beneath tapered porch supports. Eye-catching Craftsman windows add more interest, as does the grid-paneled garage door. Shake-textured shingles also fill the front gable that spans the garage and entry. A decorative gable end accents the apex.

A lengthy foyer leads past the coat closet and into a large open gathering space at the rear. The living room, dining room and kitchen flow together there, and natural light spills into the entire space through two wide windows. A rectangular bay expands the dining area, which offers easy access to the partially covered patio.

Counters and cupboards run along two walls of the kitchen, creating a tight, step-saving quadrangle that links the sink, range, refrigerator and work island. The work island provides more of both counters and storage cabinets, and is rimmed by a raised eating bar.

Right around the corner is a roomy walk-in closet/pantry. It sits at the juncture of the secondary bedrooms and main bathroom. Storage shelves in a triangular alcove just inside the bathroom can hold plenty of sheets and fluffy towels.

The comfortable owners’ suite is off in a wing by itself, well isolated from the other bedrooms. But it’s not entirely alone. A large utility room, with cabinets and a wide counter, feeds off of the same short hallway, as does a direct access door to the Camas’ two-car garage.

Visit AssociatedDesigns.com for more information or to search our home plans. A review plan of the Camas 30-711 can be purchase for $25. Our Home Plan Collection, featuring more than 550 home plans, costs $15. Both are available online, by mail or phone. Add $5 s/h.
