On the second floor, a great room with an attached kitchen countertop makes the entire area more spacious and flexible. The window is enough to light up the whole room. Mirroring the hall, there is a master bedroom with an attached toilet. It is equipped with a sink, lavatory, and a bathtub. The washroom is shared with the hall too. There is enough closet space to keep necessary accessories safely. 

This straightforward and well-organized design is suitable for a small household. It’s difficult to dismiss or overlook the garage’s multipurpose versatility. We recommend that you consider this choice with your family and make the final decision.
