Not only is the Clary 2 compact and economical to build, but it is also designed with ample storage space to meet the needs of a small and possibly growing family.
Storage areas line the hallway and ample closet space is available in each bedroom. The kitchen has a pantry, and nooks for bookshelves are found in both the living room and one of the bedrooms. These could be outfitted with floor-to-ceiling shelves, or shelving only the upper area would leave a a convenient cubby for a desk - a natural for a personal computer or an entertainment center.The utility room is conveniently close to the bedrooms and bathrooms, where most laundry is generated. And having the bathroom so close to the front door allows kids to dash in from play when nature calls, without leaving a trail of footprints through other rooms of the house.
Cafe doors open into the roomy kitchen from the entryway and the corner sink looks out across the front porch and yard. In addition to the pantry, this room includes plenty of cupboards. Having the range in the eating bar allows family members to ladle out seconds directly from the stovetop without leaving their stools.
French doors in the master suite open onto a private deck, and a skylight brightens the master bath.
Another skylight, in the vaulted living room, adds to the light from the sliding glass doors, while a large corner fireplace offers an open invitation from tasting pajamaed backsides and reading bedtime stories.
