FLOOR: 116 sq.ft. The double garage is 24'x24' (576 sq.ft.) - plenty of storage
space. The garage doors are 9' wide - easy access - and there's a back door
out into a fenced yard. Visitors coats go on hooks in the small entrance hall
- residents coats and boots go in the closet in the garage. The hot water
tank is under the stairs in the large storage closet. The second floor deck
provides rain protection over the front door.
FLOOR: 692 sq.ft. If built on a slope the a back door could be placed at the
top of the stairs leading out onto a deck at ground level. Notice the glass
door leading onto the small deck over the front door. Notice also the stacked
washer and drier opposite the pantry - both secluded somewhat by the arches
over the entrance to the kitchen. There's a 2' high upper cupboard against
the ceiling over the eating bar - the other upper cupboards are 3.5' high.
There's a point-load post in the wall next to the telephone desk to support
the beam shown in the open 3D plan to the right.
FLOOR: 692 sq.ft. In addition to the three bedrooms and bathroom, there's
a cheater ensuite toilet, plus a large linen closet and broom closet at the
top of the stairs. Much of the floor space is taken up by the passages - access
to the roof deck and main toilet dictate this usage.

roof deck which has a solid 3.5 ft. high rail.

Town House was designed to be built in clusters on strata titled land. Each
individual unit has sufficient space for a family (provided the family is
into 'minimalist living'). Double garage and storage on 1st; open plan living
on second with walk-out deck over front door; three bedrooms on 3rd and sun
room with roof deck on 4th.
Town House can be built as an individual house - simple and inexpensive construction
- but standing alone it could have windows in the side walls - talk to Plum
Design about it.
