Large modern one-storey house plan with stone cladding: the Hobb's architect

This updated Modern design blends style, accessibility, and energy efficiency with the demands of family living. A sleek hipped roof and high windows add Modern style to the exterior, while high ceilings and lots of natural light brighten the interior. A metal roof adds modern flair.

Accessibility features include polished concrete floors and open one-level living spaces, along with raised electrical outlets and lowered switches. Sinks with side-mount faucets, a raised dishwasher, and an accessible ironing board are among many features for optimal independent living. The guest suite’s walk-in shower is barrier-free. The home is also equipped with an energy-efficient heat-pump water heater, spray-foam insulation, solar panels, and a rainwater collection system. 

The most important green and energy saving features though are proper orientation to the sun and porches and large roof overhangs shading windows.  Those same features give the home its clean, modern Neo-prairie style  Even without reading all this, you can “feel” that it’s right for this climate just by looking at it.  It settles down on the land nicely with horizontal lines and rectilinear, but not too harsh, features. 

The owner and builder of this home is an accessibility design expert of necessity because her son’s medical condition requires it, but it is also her passion.   The home has barrier free showers, side mounted faucets, lowered eating bar, wider doorways and halls, lowered light switches, raised outlets, a play room that doubles as a physical therapy space, sliding doors that require less than 5 lbs. of pressure to open and that run in tracks that are recessed into the slab to allow easy passage of a wheelchair, a pool with both a lift and a wheelchair ramp into the water, ramp access to every major entrance, raised dishwashers,  wheelchair use fold-out ironing board and lots of other accommodations for accessibility.   All this gave their son a level of independence he has never enjoyed before in his life making it a game changer for the whole family.
