In this plan, the
living, dining, and kitchen areas are situated in a spacious 12'x23'
room, allowing an expansive open living area. The 8'x8' deck adds to the
living space, and the quality of living -- nothing like the aroma of
barbecued spareribs to say, Welcome to my home. Note that a washer and
dryer has been added to the bathroom. Moreover, an AC air-handling room
is included at the end of the kitchen. If you desire a tub/shower
instead of a shower, there is room if the washer and dryer is a stack
combo. Note that the garage entrance can be from the front. In this
event, the stairs would be straight. The overhang over the driveway is a
3' portico, which adds a distinctive look to the garage apartment.
