This is a perfect little empty-nesters’ home, at about 1300 s.f. for the main level. It will be built in the countryside of Hampshire County in western Massachusetts. The main house entry and mud room area includes a half-bath, and this area leads into the central stairway and kitchen. The entry and kitchen areas are both under our Beamed Mid-floor System (http://www.postandbeam.com/floor-framing-system). Toward the back of the main level is the great room and dining area under a beamed cathedral ceiling (http://www.postandbeam.com/roof-framing-system). The master bedroom ell with a beamed cathedral ceiling is off to the side, and opens out onto a shared screen porch. Upstairs is about 500 s.f., and is currently drawn to accommodate another full bath. The loft is a lounge/sitting area that looks down onto the living area below. A drive-under garage fills much of the basement level, with additional rooms laid out for storage and utilities.
