At Capstone Custom Homes, we love to customize our floor plans in new and exciting ways. One recent example of this comes out of Port Clinton, a beautiful town on Lake Erie. This family chose to build a ranch version of our Big Bend floor plan, and we were thrilled to build a unique home in such a great location.
Big Bend in a Ranch
Normally, the Big Bend floor plan is a two-story Cape Cod style home. For this design, however, we took the same big and spacious layout, and applied it to a single-story house. The resulting home is 1,750 square feet, but still feels quite roomy because it retains the open concept of the original Big Bend layout.
Several functional and aesthetic customizations helped make this house truly one of a kind. Perhaps the biggest change was converting the dining room into a third bedroom. To help the home feel even more spacious, it uses nine-foot ceilings and an eight-foot-tall front door that is 3/4 glass. The bathroom also received an appealing upgrade with a hinged glass shower door.
The home’s lakeside location also led to the use of a distinctive modern coastal style. A trellis above the garage door, wide interior trim, and the use of lots of white throughout help create the feeling of a true lakeside getaway.
As this home build shows, our team is able to go above and beyond to customize each floor plan based on what the customer wants. Contact us today to discuss your ideas for your own custom home!
