Have you ever walked into someone's house and been taken aback at a dramatic and gorgeous view? Many vacation homes are situated to take advantage of commanding scenery such as mountains, lakes, golf courses, etc. If you happen to be someone who has a lot such as this, you want the ability to showcase the wow factor. The best way to do this is to pick a home plan that is laid out in such a way as to make the scenery feel like it is part of the house itself.
Take a look at this rear view as seen from the deck just outside the great room of the Lookout Mountain home plan.
Here is the floor plan and rear elevation below. Notice that the great room has a vaulted ceiling, 4 windows and one large window with high glass above to take advantage of the height of the vault. This helps emphasize the rear view.
Also, the kitchen is open to the breakfast and vaulted great room further adding to the bright and airy interior. The plan has a comfortable feel and is small enough to manage.
