  • This European home is an English Country design with Tudor influences that pays homage to the proportions and exterior details of old post and beam construction.
  • An efficiently organized floor plan includes a generous kitchen, dining room, gathering room and den area for spacious first floor living.
  • A huge bay window bathes the kitchen in winter sunlight and makes a cheery work center with good views to the back yard.
  • The rear solar elevation of this home continues the English style with Oriel bay windows and bracketed porch overhangs.
  • Glass doors from both dining and den areas capture maximum sun and provide easy access to the backyard.
  • The upstairs packs three bedrooms and an office under the roof structure for efficient space with minimum exterior exposed walls.
  • The office bay window gives a "Captain's Quarters" feeling to the space along with a vaulted and paneled ceiling.
  • The master suite has a huge walk-in closet and a bright and sunny master bathroom to catch the sun's heat in winter.
  • The centrally located wood stove and chimney form the heart of the home and put the warmth where it belongs.

 

 

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

shows details of the house as though it were cut in slices from the roof to the foundation. The cross sections detail the construction of the home, insulation, flooring and roofing.

Interior Elevations 

show the details of cabinets such as those found in the kitchen, bathroom and utility room, fireplaces and other special interior features.

Roof Plan

provides a bird's eye view of the roof's valleys, ridges and dormers, if applicable

Electrical Plan (when available)

shows the suggested locations for fixtures and outlets. Please contact us to see if an electrical plan is included in the plan set.

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.
