DESIGNER: Todd Hallett, TK Design & Associates

DIMENSIONS: Width: 46 feet / Depth: 49 feet / Living area: 2,200 sf

A. Open sight lines throughout the home provide the illusion of distance

B. Breaks in the architecture create a processional flow that enriches the experience of moving through the home

C. A flex room can easily be converted from an office into a fifth bedroom

D. The prep kitchen offers a space designated for not only prep but actual cooking, so the main kitchen can be a stylish space for socializing

E. The three-car tandem garage accommodates a third car while maintaining reasonable lot size width
