At Home

The Juniper design features a compact, informal home with an open, spacious feeling. Designed to meet the needs of a single person or a couple with no children, this single- level plan could also be adapted to accommodate a wheelchair.

Most of the exterior is lap siding with stucco relief trim. 

 A small porch bounded by a wooden railing adds curb appeal, as do sidelights flanking the front door. Inside, these slender windows, along with the oval window in the door, brighten the entryway. 

A doublewide closet is around the corner to the right.

Straight ahead is the comfortable and bright great room, which combines the functions of living room, dining room and kitchen. 

Three wide windows fill most of the back wall and more light spills down from above through four rectangular skylights.

A glass door on the left opens onto a small-railed deck that is also accessible from the master suite. 

 In the great room, a hearth of brick tile transects one corner, creating a warm focal point. 

The large, open kitchen fills the other corner. A raised eating bar is all that separates the dining area from the kitchen. Friends and neighbors will enjoy lingering here to chat while the owners deal with food preparation and clean up. 

The dishwasher is raised to minimize bending. 

Counter space is ample, and a large walk-in pantry augments the available storage capacity.

Utilities are just a few steps away in a pass-through utility room complete with cabinets and a counter. 

The garage has built-in cabinets and a long workbench.

Two bedrooms are on opposite sides of the great room. 

Amenities in the master suite include a walk-in closet, twin basins and separately enclosed tub and toilet. 

The guest bedroom has a set of built-in shelves.
