About this Plan

  • Promoting open living spaces inside and two covered porches plus a sweeping deck, this house plan captures the essence of what it means to embrace the great outdoors.
  • Approaching the front porch entry, you are drawn into rustic elegance beneath soaring timber trusses framing 8'-high glass doors. A true mountain craftsman facade, this home plan features ornate gabled peaks, various roof pitches and a decorative single dormer.
  • Upon entry into the home, a 16' vaulted foyer and adjacent dining room (12' ceiling) immediately greet guests. With a built-in fireplace and a 20' vaulted ceiling, the lodge room features a wall of windows and boasts grandeur all around.
  • The breakfast room, kitchen and keeping room (12' ceiling) are centrally-located and adjacent to several larger rooms promoting easy flow throughout the home.
  • Generous mud and laundry rooms are near the kitchen, creating ample storage space.
  • The optional upstairs loft and guest bedroom give you an additional 334 square feet to play with and 9' ceilings.
  • The optional finished basement is loaded. Build on a slab and replace the stairs with a built-in desk or pantry.
  • Note: The ridge height measures 27'10" without the chimney, 32'7" including the chimney.
