The Jiminey house has been designed to use its 2,233 square feet economically and wisely. 

This home has five bedrooms, a great room, a large master suite and a den. This is a design that could be used equally well by a large family, a foster home care shelter, an elderly care provider or a retired couple with large families that visit.

The pillared archway has ramp access for wheelchairs as well as stairs up to the front door. 

 The entryway has an alcove for a bench and a coat closet. Down the hall to the left is the sleeping area for kids or guests. 

Two of the bedrooms adjoin each other. A full bathroom separates two other bedrooms. A utility room, next to the fifth bedroom, has a large counter and overhead storage.

Modern homes are now using great rooms in place of family/​dining/​living rooms. The great room in the Jiminey is a perfect example of that with its high vaulted ceiling, built-in entertainment center and covered patio access. 

Some advantages of a room so large are its openness and the ability to move furniture in many different combinations.

Separated from the great room by a long eating bar, the kitchen has been created for a number of cooks to have room to move and to help out. There is a walk-in pantry for bulk storage.

Apart from the other bedrooms, the vaulted master suite has its own private covered deck accessible through a patio door. 

It also features a wall closet equivalent to a walk-in closet. There are two vanity sinks with a full bathroom featuring an enlarged shower.

The den, which could also be used as an office, is conveniently located near the master suite, providing a space of peace and quiet — an escape haven. 

The entire demeanor of this home speaks of being a home for many. 

The covered decks and patios mean space for children to play or for adults to sit outside and enjoy the weather. The large great room provides a meeting place for everyone. 

 The numerous bedrooms could be set up as individual suites or as children’s rooms.
