Entertainment floor with full bar and fireplace. Cafe style breakfast nook. Massive built-ins. Curved balcony overlook. More than 80 windows. Pet rooms. The Grand Lodge is the ultimate in luxury living for multi-gen families, with something for everyone.

#4 Multi-gen Floor Plan Layout - Guest Suite on the main floor that can be expanded for a more spacious retreat

Multi-gen Statesman

This custom main floor master home starts with 3160 square feet. 4 bedrooms. 4 baths, with a first floor guest suite that is tucked into the opposite corner from the master. The guest suite can be expanded with a sitting room and other elements that add independence.  The Statesman has a vaulted great room that is open to the kitchen that has two islands with lots of wide open space for mingling. There's a bonus room and two en-suite bedrooms on the second floor.

#5 Multi-gen Floor Plan Layout - Mother in Law Suite Downstairs, Master Suite Upstairs

This custom designed multi-gen home has 4,364 Sq Ft. 5 bedrooms. 4.5 bathrooms. The owner's suite is upstairs and Mom's bedroom suite with a big walk-in closet and private bath is downstairs. Two islands in the kitchen allow for lots of cooks in the kitchen, with easy interactions with whatever is happening in the breakfast, sitting, and keeping room. The Serengeti also has a home office and a prayer room.

#6 Multi-gen Floor Plan Layout - Space to add a small apartment

Multi-gen - Cotswold B

 

This custom home can have a small apartment inside, with private living quarters! It can have as many as 3550 square feet (with an optional huge bonus room over the great room) with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths. Here's where the apartment can go: Take a look at the right side of the main floor. We can re-arrange that entire area to create a bigger bathroom, living room - even a kitchenette.  The Cotswold also has a sunroom that can become a home office. Lots of possibilities, with this popular plan.

A custom home like this can dedicate the entire walk-out basement to a small apartment. The Treehouse has 3611 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. In addition to massive walls of windows to capture natural light, there is a sun room off the kitchen. The basement rendering indicating a gameroom, storage, office and gym can become a living room, kitchenette, bathroom and a couple of bedrooms. As with all small apartments within a home, check with local ordinances, zoning, community covenants and your builder for regulations regarding single family dwellings.

Posted by Stanton Homes on Fri, Mar 22, 2019 @ 11:03 AM

See 14 screen porches (click on photos to see inside the homes, too)     

Enjoy indoor/outdoor living year-round with a screen porch to keep things cozy. Here are 21 photos of Screen Porches designed and built by Stanton Homes, to give you more ideas for your custom home, with entertainment space under the roof: 

Screen Porch Design #1 - Dual stairways provide free flow in two directions to the back yard for this family-sized screen porch. Screen porches like this can be adapted to fit just about any custom home by a custom home builder in North Carolina.

ArcadiaScreenPorch 

Screen Porch Design #2 - This huge Treehouse Screen Porch offers birds-eye views of wooded acreage. A stairway to the back yard has a landing in the middle, to ease the way down. The beadboard ceiling is tinted to match the color scheme of this custom home in Chatham County.

CabotScreenPorch

 

Screen Porch Design #3 - Ceiling fans help circulate fresh air in big screen porches like this. The choice here of a wide plank white ceiling gives a more formal look to outdoor living. Screening on all exterior walls as well as under the floor boards helps keep insects on the outside.

AliciaScreenPorch

 

Screen Porch Design #4 - This huge screen porch was designed in conjunction with a patio below that provides the perfect place for grilling for outdoor eating on this expansive entertainment area.  Fresh air and wide open views add enjoyment.

BellemontScreenPorch-1

 

Screen Porch Design #5 - Expansive space including a high ceiling gives this massive screen porch the ability to host indoor/outdoor activities with as much room to maneuver as the gathering areas inside this custom home.

BroganScreenPorch

 

Screen Porch Design #6 - The spaciousness of this huge screen porch is even more expansive with the high ceiling that follows the roofline. A deck beyond carries outdoor living around the side of the home as well as down into the property.

ChaletVertScreenPorch

 

Screen Porch Design #7 - This high top screen porch adds artistry to this new home in Orange County designed by the homeowners with their custom home builder. The extended screened room walls heighten elegance for this intimate outdoor living space.

CoqueryCottageScreenPorch

 

Screen Porch Design #8 - This massive screen porch is almost like having a basement - with a breeze. The concrete flooring in place of decking extends the home's foundation. The see-through fireplace and three sets of glass French doors invite flow-through for large gatherings.

DanielScreenPorch

 

Screen Porch Design #9 - Small back yard? Extend its usability with a big screen porch like this custom home in Apex, NC. The huge fan with light set into a high ceiling expands versatility for long hours of protected outdoor living.

DinsmoreScreenPorch2

 

Screen Porch Design #10 - Custom homes often carry the roofline across the screen porch like this, so the enclosed screen room feels like it's an integral part of the custom home design. A ceiling fan lengthens indoor/outdoor enjoyment.

GlenviewScreenPorch-1

 

Screen Porch Design #11 - The grandeur of this custom designed screen room with extensive upper decking and a massive ceiling fan steeps this ultimate screen porch with the luxury of a Grand Lodge.

GrandLodgeScreenPorch

 

Screen Porch Design #12 - Practical and simplistic, this screen porch pairs up with the patio below for family entertainment. A wooden staircase joins the two levels of outdoor living. A beadboard ceiling completes detail work with the perfect cover story.

GreenhavenScreenPorch

 

Screen Porch Design #13 - When outdoor living is a big emphasis in your lifestyle, this tucked in Screen Porch in accompaniment to a massive wood deck is a great way to enjoy year-long enjoyment of fresh air activities.

SaddleridgeScreenPorch

When Great Room windows have a Screen Porch on the other side, an 11 foot ceiling allows for more light to shine through, with transoms, like this Wall of Windows framing the fireplace. It also expands the open floor plan feel.

TreehouseExteriorRearwallofwindows

The massive Wall of Windows on this new home in NC emphasizes the roofline, with custom windows shaped to follow the architectural design. The walk-out basement beneath also emphasizes the appeal of natural light.

The Wall of Windows in this Master Suite provides a light and airy feel to the room. The double trey ceiling above extends that openness. Glass French Doors to the private deck and Screen Porch beyond add even more access to outdoors.

The Wall of Windows in the eating area beyond this Kitchen are brighter with transoms. And take a look at how glass doors and picture windows are heightened by curved windows above, for a formal look to the transition of indoor/outdoor living.
