Home 3 Bedroom House Plans 976-square-feet-3-bedrooms-2-bathroom-modern-house-plan-0-garage




The Classic Dogtrot, an old Southern design updated! This new home design has been conceived to maximize the needs of the modern family in an efficient ?right-sized’ plan. Offering three bedrooms and two full bathrooms in just 976 square feet, this amazing home design has everything needed in a highly-affordable footprint. Careful attention to proportions and details, such as using a 48 inch grid, will result in a pleasant living experience as well as minimized construction costs. Utilizing labor and energy-efficient construction techniques and space-saving built-in casework wherever possible, this plan will go up quickly and serve a growing family for years. Based on the traditional dogtrot plan, a large open deck separates the living area from an additional 816 square feet of flexible area. This bonus space can be customized to suit the specific needs of the owners; home office and business space, guest suite, shop, or storage. To best take advantage of its unique layout, a dogtrot should be oriented on its site to take advantage of distant views and prevailing breezes. Like all of Daniel Bush’s designs, careful attention to natural light and space planning are central design elements of The Classic Dogtrot, and those unique amenities such as the use of built-in storage and dining area make this design another winner.
