  • Brick combines with board and batten siding to create a texture-rich exterior on this New American home plan. The spacious interior boasts three floors, and the expansive rear porch spans the length of the home.
  • Upon entering, a dining room sits to the left, while the light-filled family room resides straight ahead. The kitchen includes a prep island and nearby pantry for easy access.
  • Retreat to the main-level, master bedroom, which features dual closets and a master bath with two sinks and a commode room.
  • Take one of the two staircases, or the elevator, to the second level, and discover three secondary bedrooms; two share a Jack-and-Jill bath, and one includes a full bath. An office on this level could serve as a homework station or space for the work-at-home resident.
  • The optional bonus room above the garage increases living space by 429 sq. ft and gives the second floor a fun space to enjoy.
  • Bedrooms 5 and 6 are located on the third floor and share the hall bath with dual sinks.

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.

Exterior Elevations

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

Building Cross Section

Building Code

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.
