Now time to break out the hot chocolate mix, the scarves, gloves, and get all cozy and comfy. What? It’s going to get back up in the 80’s by the end of the week?! Crap!
Well I can at least pretend while its nice. So, let’s look at some comfy, cozy things for your dream home.
Cozy Additions to Great House Plans
So, one of the things that I love to do the most, especially on cold days is burrow under the covers with a good book. (Just because they are eBooks, doesn’t mean they don’t count!) So, what is more comforting on a cold day other than a good book? A nice fire in a fireplace to keep you warm. So why not make sure that your master bedroom has just that?
I’ve collected some of the best plans that have fireplaces in the master bedrooms all in one little post. So, you can look at these charming plans to your heart’s content. Or you can check them all out on our website.
