Floor Plan of the Month - The Texas

The Texas by PrecisionCraft Log & Timber Homes, selected as Log Home Living's Floor Plan of the Month for February 2005.

Low and sprawling like the Lone Star State, The Texas packs almost 3,000 square feet of interior living space into the one-level Precision Craft design.  The good news is that all of this space on one level is far from overwhelming.  The living zone is at the heart of the home with spatial dividers that are subtle yet distinctive. 

A double-sided fireplace cordons off the dining room from  the family room, and the kitchen pantry sidles up to the coat closet in the foyer to create a snug breakfast nook.  An extra bathroom on the other side of the entry does well to carve out a welcome area that's cozy despite the grand sapace it opens to. 

From the foyer a hall leads to the private master suite wing that also houses a den and third bath.  The opposite wing houses two bedrooms with a shared bath and a mud room passage to the garage that holds up to three cars (or one car and one RV). 

The doors on this 928-square-foot space face away from the front yard, so those walking up to the porch see a seamlessly designed home that beckons to them with its big Texan smile.
