House of five porches

The floor plan for this home, Plan DBI-24140 by Home Plans LLC, includes five porches and covers 1,842 square feet of living space, not including the 386-square-foot bonus room that can be finished over the garage.

French doors open from the porch to the foyer, where a study awaits. Abundant natural light invites you into the living room, which has a high ceiling and corner gas fireplace.

Fronted by a handy snack bar, the island kitchen enjoys a large pantry and double ovens. The dining area opens to a screen porch, which is topped by a cathedral ceiling. Two more porches lie on either side of the screen porch.

The master suite offers direct porch access, in addition to a private bath.

The fifth porch shelters the service entrance at the laundry room. An upper-floor future area would make a great playroom or studio.
