Charming dormers with brackets, a sprawling 3-car garage, shake and stone siding, this Craftsman home plan extends a gracious and comfortable hand to all. The angled lines of the garage and the main home work together to expedite guest traffic flow from the motor court to the entry. A double-gable roof above the front door signals the home's entrance and inspires a desire to see the interior.
Spreading out luxuriously from the large, rectangular foyer is the great room with a view to the back via a wall of windows. The dining room takes a smart and casual approach starting with its placement next to the kitchen. Sit-down dining is a sensory experience; guests and family are treated to the aromas of the evening meal and views of natural surroundings through glass doors on the back wall. At the same time they are surrounded by the elegance of the island cabinetry and the built-in hutch.
Given a main-level master suite, homeowners can live entirely on one level if they wish. Located privately behind the garage, the master suite is a haven of comfort. Amenities there include a built-in TV cabinet, a backyard view, a spa tub and a roomy closet.
The main body of the home (i.e., from the kitchen to the master bedroom) measures 76'.

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.
