While we have spent the last few weeks focusing on the wide range of design and construction offered by Timberpeg, the largest part of our business is providing single family homes that are appreciated and lived in every day. While a large home can be fun to think about, half of all new homes constructed today are less than 2,400 square feet. However, even a home this size can provide all the features a modern homeowner desires. The Dry Creek Floor Plan is just such a home, feeling much larger than its nameplate 2,200 square feet. The Dry Creek features a bonus room above the garage. A breezeway from the garage connects to the front porch and main entry to the home and is perfectly suited for the North Carolina climate. Entering the house, a foyer space is framed by the stairwell, closet and the great room fireplace ahead.
The great room, dining room and kitchen are all open to one another, with beams framing the space but allowing a great flow between the rooms. There is access from the great room to a rear deck, but the space between the kitchen and dining area also features access to a screened porch, perfect for outdoor entertaining. The kitchen centers on a functional L-shaped layout, yet has enough space for an island with an additional sink for prep work and bar seating for informal dining. A walk-in pantry accommodates food storage needs, while the laundry room is also conveniently located off of the kitchen. On the other side of the great room a powder room is present and a short privacy hallway leads to the first-floor master suite. The master suite has a large walk-in closet, with an additional walk-through closet allowing access to the master bathroom. The bathroom makes great use of its space while providing a separate shower and bathtub.
The stairs lead up to a loft space overlooking the great room while retaining enough room for a work or play area. Twin guest bedrooms flank the loft on each side, each providing dedicated guest bathrooms and ample closets. This build was also constructed with a walkout basement, which added an additional bedroom, two baths and a game room not included in the total square footage.
