Sometimes the best place to build is an “infill” lot in in an existing neighborhood, often with narrow street frontage. We designed this home to sit well on such lots. It’s long and narrow with a sheltering entry porch, an open plan and master suite on the ground floor, and an upstairs “realm” with two bedrooms, a bathroom, and space for playing, studying, or working. The upper floor is easily adapted to other uses. Sometimes there are real advantages in “sticking to the straight and narrow."
