“Rustic Family” Straw Bale Plans


Plan Number: ck-200
Designed by: Chris Keefe of Organicforms Design, LLC. For bio click here.

“Rustic Family” was inspired by a family of four that wanted a large open kitchen/living room with a central hearth, an vaulted ceiling with a open air cupola, and a sunroom to watch the sun set over the hillside beyond.  It also features a “Kids Wing”.  This is a wing of the house with two bedrooms and a family room.  The other side of the house has the master suite with his and hers closets and a full bathroom.  There is also a third bedroom that can also be used as an office.

The rustic feel comes from the rough sawn outer posts and beams that create 4 porches and patios all around the house, and from the exposed rafter tails that promotes a down home feel of simple living.  The open porches provide great sheltered outdoor spaces for entertaining guests in the warmer months of the year.  The home is designed with a slab foundation but could be modified with a framed floor if necessary.
