About this plan

If a big open plan living area is a priority, then the Kingfisher could be the perfect plan for you. It has all the basics covered with a compact kitchen and bathroom giving priority to a large open living area. The master loft has a walking platform adjacent to the bed so you wont need to crawl into bed.​
