800 square feet of main floor living!
Fraxinus is a straightforward design with 800 square feet of first floor living space. It has a modest 20' x 40' footprint that can be easily and inexpensively constructed.
A Great Room for Gathering
There's plenty of space for entertaining. The great room has 10' paneled ceilings with windows floor to ceiling that take in a wide view and add a mid-century modern curb appeal. There's a modern kitchen with two doors, an eat-in island - though a modest dining table and chairs could be used as well, and a 20' wide living area. Best of all the entire great room enjoys a fireplace centerpiece (optional).
There are two first floor bedrooms and baths; one a master ensuite, the second a guest room with a pocket door to create a temporary private ensuite.
Fraxinus is super-insulated with R-60 ceilings, R-30 walls, and up to R-30 floors (slab). Insulation types & amounts can be easily adjusted to suit various climates and needs. The plan calls out for Marvin Integrity Wood-Ultrex windows and doors with an average u-factor of 0.28.
A Perfect Airbnb Rental
Fraxinus was designed as a vacation rental for cosmopolitan Vancouverites looking for a clean, quiet weekend getaway . It offers a handsome balance of rural cabin and mid-century modern style and could be used as a rental or for full-time living.
