Getaway House Plan with 800 SQ FT

It’s time to get away. You’ve answered enough email. You’ve written enough reports. Your office chair is sagging from long hours staring at the computer screen. Now is the time to take a vacation. 2 Bedroom Getaway House Plan 59040 has everything you need for the perfect weekend away. Firstly, spend time outside. When you are seeking a simple place to wind down, while away the time in a rocking chair on the front porch, or grill out and dine with your family on the back screened porch. After all, it’s better to look at nature through the screened porch than through a computer screen!

Secondly, the interior is small and cozy. The kitchen has all of the necessities that you have at home. It’s small, compact, and easy to maintain. You have everything you need, but nothing that you don’t need. Consider the phrase: “Less is more.” Family members will perch on a barstool at the raised bar counter, and close quarters will promote more family togetherness. Thirdly, the living room has a fireplace. One member of the family will relax by the fire. Meanwhile, another will fish by the lake. Don’t overcomplicate your vacations—just embrace simplicity.
