“This serviceable plan allows for great access to the outdoors. It could work just as well without the upper floor”
Mira Jean Steinbrecher
“The wraparound porch that mimics this home’s interesting perimeter layout adds visual interest to an otherwise simple plan. The expansive great room takes advantage of the spacious deck, with multiple access points to the outdoors. An upper-level master suite is perfectly poised to take in the stunning views.”
The Ruby Lake truly is a gem and by far our most popular plan. This two story home immediately meets you with expansive views and spacious living. The spacious living room layout promotes conversation and interaction in every space, while allowing family and guests alike to enjoy the magnificent view. The L-shaped kitchen provides plenty of counter space along with a good-sized island that has views on three sides, including a clear view of the massive double-sided fireplace.
Efficiency is the cornerstone of the Ruby Lake. Carefully placed shelved-wall niches adorn the bedrooms and add visually interesting elements throughout the space right up to and including the spiral stairs. The subdued placement of the stacked washer and dryer allow for more room in the bathroom, while staying tidy and out of sight. The doubled sided fireplace allows for two separate fires to be going with just one flue. This comfort extenuates the Ruby Lake’s ability to take living outside. Hideaways are created throughout the house and even on the deck. The covered deck creates a perfect haven to enjoy the outdoors even during inclement weather. The sun deck atop the master bedroom fashions relaxing afternoons sunbathing while evenings can be spent snuggled up with a loved one underneath the glittering sky.
The Ruby Lake is a well planned, efficient home that utilizes space efficiently while taking advantage of the picturesque landscape.
