The Chinook Castle House Plan.
Chinook is a large castle tower house, with a central light well. The drive-out basement level provides access to the foyer stairs and elevator, and parking for large vehicles. The main level houses a generous living, office, bath, dining, pantry and chef’s kitchen. The kitchen is designed around a 48″ refrigerator and 48″ gas range. Adjacent to the kitchen is the 2-story greenhouse, where you can grow your own herbs, vegetables and fruit trees. The living space includes a wood-burning fireplace, with access to the rear porch. The upper floor holds 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and the laundry. The master bath includes a jetted tub with sitting areas, double shower and double sink. The stairs lead up to outdoor living spaces on the roof.
