Country House Plan - Kokanee 31-202 - Front Elevation

The Kokanee is a two-story house plan wrapped in a charming country exterior. Slender columns with broad stone bases mark the boundary of the front covered porch.

Country House Plan - Kokanee 31-202 - First Floor Plan

Inside the foyer is open with a tall 2-story ceiling and is open to the great room. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are all open so that people and conversations can flow freely in the space. A fireplace can be enjoyed from the living room on cozy fall days. When the weather is nice, the sliding glass door in the dining room opens and extends the great room to the back covered patio. An eating bar extends out and provides some visual separation to the kitchen while adding additional seating during holiday gatherings.

Off the dining room a short hallway leads past a half bath and a pass-through utility room which provides direct access to the attached two car garage. At the end of the hall is the main floor owners’ suite which features a private bath with twin sinks and a walk-in closet.

2 Story House Plan - Kokanee 31-202 - Second Floor Plan

Those who enjoy entertaining will appreciate the second-floor guest room. The guest accommodation is set up for longer visits with the larger closet and direct access to the shared compartmentalized bathroom. The Kokanee is a great plan for growing families or households where more than one person works remotely. The second floor has an additional two bedrooms on the upper level bringing the total bedroom count to four. These extra rooms make great home offices, exercise studios, or hobby rooms for households without children or adult children who have left the nest.

Extending out over the garage is a bonus room. The 8-foot ceiling allows this space to be finished as a family room or recreation room providing space for visitors to spread out during larger get-togethers. For families with small children the bonus room is an ideal space for a playroom.
