HGTV Green Home 2012: Floor Plan

HGTV Green Home 2012, located in the picturesque community of Serenbe, is designed to resemble an early Georgia farmhouse and boasts modern amenities and eco-friendly features that allow homeowners to "live big" in a compact space.

Farmhouse With a Modern Twist

Southeastern culture and regional architecture have inspired the floor plan for HGTV Green Home 2012, a 2,300-square-foot three bedroom, 2 1/2 bath family farmhouse, designed by Kemp Hall Studio.

Main Floor

Rooms on the first floor surround a central courtyard. The kitchen opens up to this space, expanding the potential for open-air entertaining.

Terrace Floor

The entry leads up a stairwell/light tower to the main level. Storage space for sports equipment and home systems are located on this floor.

Upper Floor

Bedrooms and craft space on the top floor accommodate guests and homeowners.

Front Elevation

The home is built upon a stone foundation, designed to resemble the "ruins" of an old farmhouse.

Left Elevation

Glass walls and windows capitalize on views and allow light to stream into spaces. The home's cupola provides an additional source of light and opens to exhaust hot air.

Right Elevation

Fiber-cement siding, mitered at corners, clads the farmhouse exterior.

Rear Elevation

Glass walls open to the backyard. A walkway leads to the home's carport.
