LIV­ING LODGE

Timber Home Living - - Draw­ing Board -

If you’ll be host­ing lots of overnighters at your sec­ond home, not only do you need plenty of sleep space, you’ll also want to in­cor­po­rate a va­ri­ety of pub­lic ar­eas, some open to the rest of the home, oth­ers far­ther away from the ac­tion.

WHY IT WORKS

This 2 1/2-story, 6,400-square-foot de­sign cov­ers all the bases with its com­bi­na­tion of be­d­rooms, bunkrooms and suites, as well as en­ter­tain­ment space on both the main and lower lev­els. A home of­fice tucked into a cor­ner near the mas­ter suite is a quiet and se­cluded room for telecom­mut­ing on those month-long respites.

DE­SIGN TIPS

Out­fit the mud­room with cubby shelv­ing for each fam­ily mem­ber. In­stall ex­tra-long bunk beds that can han­dle grown-up visi­tors, too.
