An artful use of stone was employed on the exterior of this rustic hillside home to complement other architectural elements such as the angled, oversize four-car garage and the substantial roof line.
The floor plan features a massive vaulted great room as its hub, anchored with a large stone fireplace at one end and a formal dining area at the other. A built-in media center and double doors separate the great room from a home office, which has its own hearth and built-ins.
The kitchen (with walk-in pantry and snack-bar counter) opens to a sky lit outdoor kitchen. Its appointments include a cook top and a corner fireplace. Don't miss the dog shower and grooming station just off the garage.
The master suite is found at the other side of the home. Look closely for expansive his and hers walk-in closets, a spa tub, a sky lit double vanity area and a corner fireplace in the salon. Three family bedrooms are on the lower level, along with an impressive home theater, a wine cellar and a wet bar. The home theater has a built-in viewing screen, a fireplace and double terrace access. Bedroom 4 has a private bath and walk-in closet.

Exterior Elevations: In addition to the front exterior, your
drawing set will include drawings of the rear and sides of your house as well.
These drawings give notes on exterior materials and finishes. Particular
attention is given to cornice detail, brick and stone accents, or other finish
items that make your home unique.
Foundation Plan: The foundation page dimensions, concrete
walls, footings, pads, posts, beams, bearing walls, and any stepped foundation
information along with any retaining wall info (schematic only). A typical wall
section for the home is also usually included on this page (if not, it is
elsewhere in your plan set, as space allows). If your plan features a poured
concrete slab rather than a basement or crawlspace, the foundation page shows
footings and details for the slab, and includes plumbing locations.
Floor Plan(s): Exterior and interior wall framing, and
windows/doors are dimensioned. Room sizes are indicated and any beams, posts
and structural bearing points are called out. The floor plans include an
electrical legend, and electrical fittings, lights and outlets are shown. Floor
Plans will also indicate cross–section details (provided on the sections page)
and show any special framing details applicable to the design. Cabinet elevations
are included for kitchen and bathrooms; some designs feature cabinet elevations
for design–related built–ins too.
Building Sections: Building sections show changes in
floor, ceiling, or roof height, and the relationship of one level to another. Our
section pages also show how the stairs are calculated (if there are some!) and
depict roof and foundation members. We try and draw sections to show the most
useful information — choosing locations where there are elements you or your
contractor might need clarification on.
Roof Plan: Roof framing or truss directions are
shown, slope directions are indicated and structural members are sized and
called out if applicable. The gravity loads used to calculate the rafters,
beams and posts are indicated , and we also show gutters, downspouts, and any
roof venting required for your home.
Notes and Details
home comes detailed to meet the requirements of the latest adopted version of
the ‘International Residential Code’, and our notes and details pages outline
all the elements applicable to the design of your home. Compliance with further
standards may need to be incorporated into your plan set, depending on the
requirements of your building department — these are usually done locally.
