  • Designed for a lot that slopes up, this traditional home plan is enriched by details. Horizontal lap siding and brick complement each other. Multipane windows, brick flower boxes, and a sheltered entry reinforce the upscale appearance of the three-level home. Inside, a towering foyer is capped by a window and anchored by a curved staircase.
  • The living room and dining room work together for entertaining. Tall tray ceilings and a fireplace surrounded by windows distinguish this hospitality center. The den could serve as a fifth bedroom because it's adjacent to a bath with a shower.
  • Casual spaces stretch across the back of the house. A fireplace flanked by storage units captures center stage in the family room. In the kitchen, an angular island outfitted with a cooktop boosts functionality. The eating areas are adjacent to the kitchen, easing meal service whether you're serving soup and sandwiches in the breakfast nook or a ten-course meal in the dining room.
  • A mud room with laundry facilities serves as a transition between the public spaces and the stairway to the garage. An enclosed room in the garage houses the furnace and water heater.
  • The master suite is charmed by tray ceilings and stairstep walls that create cozy nooks. A whirlpool tub occupies one such nook in the bath. The bath also harbors a shower and twin sink vanities. Three additional bedrooms and a bath also occupy the second floor.

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. 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Sections and elevations depict the standard foundation only. 

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 Page(s): Your 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.
