Here is a house that was custom designed with multiple generations in mind. To be built in northeastern Rhode Island, this entirely one-level design of about 3600 sq. ft. has two private parallel wings with a shared deck and courtyard in between. The front section has an open, central kitchen/living/dining area with a Plaster and Accent Beam cathedral ceiling (http://www.postandbeam.com/roof-framing-system). To the left side is an extensive bedroom wing extending out to the backyard, including two bedrooms separated by a full bath and office, and a private master bedroom suite. To the right side there is entry, pantry, and hallway storage in the front, and the in-law suite extending out to the backyard. The in-law suite includes an open kitchen/living area with a cathedral ceiling, a full bath, and bedroom. The basement level is currently designed for utility/storage. (Two-car garage is by owner/contractor).
