A stone wainscot and tall columns at the entry set this shingle style home plan apart.
Flanking the vaulted foyer, the dining room, equipped with built-in hutch, offers privacy in its secluded location. Opposite, the den provides flexibility as an office or fourth bedroom. A vaulted great room creates an open atmosphere in the rear of the home with doors leading out to the patio. A fireplace and close proximity to the kitchen make it a great place for entertaining or family to relax.
The centralized kitchen, with a spacious nook to accommodate an active family, overlooks the great room.
The master suite, tucked in the rear of the main floor, offers a private retreat, and a Palladian window arrangement. The bath is complete with a sunlit spa. Upstairs, two additional bedrooms and a large bonus room make a great area for children.
The tandem garage creates a third-car option or shop area allowing a narrow footprint for this home.
Note that the basement version results in 1,773 square feet of living area on the main floor and 1,641 square feet in the basement.

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.
