  • Designed with the needs of an active retired couple in mind, this home plan has everything needed for day-to-day living is on the first floor while the spacious guest suite upstairs, complete with private bath, stands ready to accommodate guests.
  • The sky lit computer room/home office offers flexible-use space and could be outfitted with a folding couch, to accommodate additional guests.
  • A wide window bay brightens the master suite, adding space for a sitting area. The suite also has its own private deck. Small skylights provide natural illumination in both the master bathroom and the guest bathroom. The two bathrooms are separate, but each opens on a shared tub and shower compartment.
  • Closets line the hallway. Half of the closet in front of the entry serves another purpose. Open to the family room at the front, it houses stereo equipment. Closed to the entry hall by a sliding door at the back, it conceals the tangle of cords that bristle from the back of stereo equipment while providing easy access. An additional 9 by 13 foot storage area is located behind the utility room.
  • For the most part, day-to-day family living and informal socializing take place in the huge kitchen/family room. A fireplace adds warmth and color. Notable kitchen features include a sunny eating nook, a central work island, a step-in pantry, and a garden window in front of the sink. A large utility room, complete with generous counter space and a sink, are close at hand.
  • A skylight illuminates the entryway and a high, arched window, flanked by multi-paned windows, adds elegance to the living room. Ceilings in both the living room and the dining room are vaulted.

What is Included in Our Plans?

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.

No two plans are the same. We strongly encourage you to contact us for the contents of any plan you may be interested in purchasing.

Below is a listing of sheets typically included in our plans:

Foundation Plan

shows the foundation details.

Floor Plan

shows the placement of interior walls and the dimensions for rooms, doors, windows, stairways, etc. of each level of the house.

Exterior Elevations

show the front, rear and sides of the house, including exterior materials, details and roof pitches.

Building Cross Section

Notes & Details

provides information for structural specifications, excavating and grading, masonry and concrete work, carpentry and wood specifications, thermal and moisture protection and specifications about drywall, tile, flooring, glazing, caulking and sealants.

Building Code

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.

Engineering

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.

Important Extras: Sold separately

Readable reverse Plans

The layout is reversed and all the writing is corrected so you can read the writing. With this option, all of your sets will appear the way you want to build the home. This option is available for an additional charge.

Mirror Reverse Plans

The lettering and dimensions will read backwards, so you will need to order at least one set non-reversed as a reference copy.

Itemized List of Materials (when available)

Includes the quantity, type and size of materials needed to build your home.
