This house plan is designed for a lot that slopes gently to the rear. With minimal excavation, the home could also be built on level ground.
It's a split-level plan that puts utilities, a workshop, and parking for two cars and a R.V. on the lowest level. The generously sized utility room has counter space, cabinets and a deep sink. A small bathroom is easily accessible from the back yard.
Public spaces and the owners' suite, all bright, airy rooms with vaulted ceilings, are at mid-level, half a flight up from the garage. The comfortable kitchen has a garden window and counters on four sides. Conveniences include a pantry and lazy susan shelving in the corners. Sliding glass doors brighten the dining room and provide easy access to a railed deck.
Skylights add to the illumination in a living room with a corner woodstove. Brickwork behind and beneath the stove radiates warmth into the dining room, living room and master suite long after flames turn to embers.
The master suite is large enough for a desk or sitting area, in addition to a bed and dresser. A skylight brightens the huge walk-in closet and the master bath has a jacuzzi tub, oversized shower and enclosed toilet.
The hobby room, guest room and study/loft are a half-flight up from the main floor. A large linen closet and sky lit bathroom serve this level while the sky lit loft overlooks the living room. The front facing guest room has a large closet.
Built-in cabinets line two walls of the huge hobby room, ideal for an artist or craftsperson. It could also be converted to a bedroom, recreation room or office space, if needed.
All of our plans are designed by licensed architects and residential building designers. Each plan is designed to meet nationally recognized building codes for the year they were created.

All of our plans are designed to provide the information needed to build your home. Because of the wide range of requirements throughout states and municipalities, it is possible that the plans may not have all of the information required by your building department. If this is the case, we recommend hiring a local design professional or engineer who can assist bringing the plans up to your local building code.
Some states require that a licensed architect or engineer review and stamp the plans. If this is the case where you will be building, a local professional will be able to assist you.
