French-inspired details resonate from the exterior to the interior of this four-bedroom home, lending sophistication to the design. The exterior combines stone and wood cladding with arched shutters and barrel-vaulted dormers for an authentic French-inspired ambience.
The interior has a rustic feel and could be finished to showcase dramatic custom woodwork and elegant views. Imagine the scene that extends off the foyer: a beautiful display of box-beam ceilings reaching from the great room through the dining room to a rustic, French Country-inspired kitchen.
Windows and French doors in the great room and the dining room connect this inspiring interior to the lush respite of a side courtyard, introduced by a porch with dramatic columns. Complementing these spaces is a library, located midway up the staircase to the second level. Outfitted with arched windows on the exterior walls, the library overlooks the courtyard and provides opportunities to carry on custom woodworking in its bookshelves and fireplace mantel. A wine room on the lower level is a fitting accompaniment too.
The elegance continues on the upper level where French doors in the hallway and master bedroom open to a balcony that also views the courtyard. A vaulted ceiling, fireplace, and built-ins lend warmth to the master bedroom. The master bath treats the owners to luxury with a kitchenette, a walk-in two-person shower, and a spacious spa tub enclosed in windows on three sides. Three additional bedrooms and a recreation room round out the floor plan.

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
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.
