Eminating the same classic appeal as the American Farmhouse, the exterior displays charming dormers, simple under-eave brackets, and an engaging wraparound front porch. The package is one that will have lasting appeal.
The front porch wraps around a den, which is filled with light from windows on two walls. On the opposite side of the foyer, the formal dining room includes a built-in hutch and a double window. The farmhouse's inherent sense of welcome extends into the open kitchen, great room, and breakfast nook. A large, welcoming island with a snack bar surveys the nearby areas, allowing conversations to flow between the cook and family and friends. A set of French doors in the great room leads to the backyard.
The master suite is the only bedroom located on the main level, which ensures a measure of privacy. Features there include a spa tub, a roomy walk-in closet, and a beautiful picture window with rear view.
A staircase leads to the upper level landing, which extends into a cozy library with a dormer window and built-in bookshelves. The space is ideal for studying, reading, or playing quietly. Two other bedrooms share a bath divided into compartments. A large bonus room over the garage - suitable for a variety of uses - completes the upper level.
The two-car garage is deep enough to provide space for a shop area. A side door readily and conveniently opens to the side yard.

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.
