House height    
Traditionally, the overall height of a house is determined by measuring from the top of the finished floor on the main level, to the highest peak of the roof.
23' 0"
Ceiling heights    
Raising or lowering the height of the ceilings on one or more floors of a house is often a simple change that can be made by your builder. However, if you want to raise the ceiling of the main floor of a two-story home, there has to be room to add steps to the existing staircase.
  Main level 10
  Upper level 10
Vaulted ceilings    
We consider a room to be vaulted if the ceiling - whether flat, angled, or curved - is above 10 feet at its highest point. If you prefer that one or more rooms not be vaulted in your new home, this is a very simple change that your builder can make for you.

After coming off of the covered entry, you enter a formal foyer space with a two–story high ceiling that reaches 24', and a decorative curved stairwell. To the left a pair of doors open into a library that is both opulent and cozy, making a perfect place for simple solitude and relaxation. As you walk straight through the central gallery space, you pass a wet bar and a wine cellar. Straight ahead is a formal living room, which has a decorative coffered ceiling that is 24' high, a stately fireplace, and curved windows that look out to the rear. Abundant windows at the rear span the entire two–story high curved wall, bringing in plenty of sunshine and multiple views. A pair of glazed doors walks out to the covered patio, which has a barbeque area and a half–cabana bath. From the living room, there is an opening that is framed by a pair of columns to the formal dining room.

If you turn right from the gallery space, you pass a media room, which has a counter and sink, before going through a vestibule space that leads to a gourmet kitchen and the family room. The spacious kitchen is open to the family room and the breakfast nook, and it features a large center island with a prep sink built in. The family room has arched windows that line the rear wall, and a pair of doors that lead to the covered patio at the rear. A utilitarian hallway leads to a maid's room that has its own private full bath, a laundry room, and a three–car garage. On the other side of the living room are a powder room, and a deluxe bedroom suite that would make any family member/guest happy. The suite features a luxurious private bath with a linen closet, two vanity sinks, a private toilet room, a whirlpool tub, and a separate shower. There is also a walk–in closet, and a door to the rear patio for private access.

As you go up the curved stairs, a long picture window lights up the staircase, and provides views to the front. The upper landing opens up to a loft space, with views to the foyer and the living room spaces below. If you turn right at the loft space, there is an upper utility/laundry room, and a bedroom suite with a walk–in closet, a private full bath, and a private covered balcony that looks out to the front. The master bedroom suite and exercise room take up the rest of this wing. A central vestibule separates the exercise room and master bedroom, making it convenient to go from one room to the other. After entering the master bedroom, a small vestibule leads you to a morning kitchen space, which has a counter with a sink and an under counter refrigerator. Next to the morning kitchen is a dressing area, which accesses a "his" and a much larger "her" walk–in closet. The master bedroom is spacious, has coffered ceilings, windows that look out the rear and side, and a pair of doors that walks out to a private covered balcony. Another pair of doors leads to the luxurious master bathroom. The bathroom features two separate toilet rooms, a large shower, a whirlpool tub set into a large curved pedestal with two columns, a decorative coffered ceiling in the center, and two separate vanity sinks. Frosted glass above the whirlpool tub brings in natural light from the balcony space. On the other side of the loft space, there are two more bedroom suites, each with its own walk–in closet, dressing area, and private full bath. Bedroom 3 also has a private covered balcony that looks out to the rear, while Bedroom 4 has a smaller curved balcony that looks out to the front.

Please Note
The plans for this home call for reinforced concrete block exterior walls. If you plan to construct this house with any other exterior wall system, we highly recommend that you purchase the plans in electronic format.

    Sometimes the house you want will only work on your property if it is built in the reverse of the original design. The plans for this particular design can be reversed by the architect, with right-reading (not mirror-reverse) words and measurements. The fee will only be added to your original order. If you wish to order more reverse copies of the plans later, please call us toll-free at 1-888-388-5735.

    $250
       

    If you need more than 5 sets, you can add them to your initial order, or order them (by phone) at a later date.

    This option is only available to folks ordering the 5-Set Package.

    $50 each
       

    Often views or site characteristics make it either advantageous or necessary to build a house in the reverse of the way the plans were originally drawn. When reversed, the front of the house continues to face in the same direction, but rooms that were on the right side of the house as you face it will now be on the left, and vice versa. The lettering and numbers will appear as they would if you held the plans up to a mirror, but this will not present a problem for your builders, as they are quite familiar with this process.

    We recommend that your order include both right-reading and mirror-reverse copies, since permit officials and lenders will need to see a right-reading version. There is a one-time cost of $50 to reverse the plans, whether you buy them all in your initial purchase, or a follow up order. The number you will need of each version is something your builder should advise you on.

    Please note: If a right-reading reverse version of the plans is offered, this is definitely the version you should purchase, whether you're interested in bonds, vellums, or electronic files (when available).

    • What is bond paper?

      Bond paper

      Printers stopped using blue ink many years ago - it was very difficult to read, and the fumes were dangerous to inhale. So what we used to refer to as blueprints are now called bond copies (black ink printed on white bond paper).
    • 5-Set Construction or Bid Set

      5-Set Construction or Bid Set

      If you are building in an area that requires very few copies to construct a house, all you might need is the 5-Set Package. It's also best for folks wanting either a quick bid process, or bids from more than one builder. In either case, you can always purchase more bond copies later on if you need them, or upgrade to a Mylar, PDF or CAD version (your original cost will be deducted from the price of the upgrade). Bond copies cannot be duplicated, but they come with a formal Copyright License that gives you the legal right to construct the house, and to modify the plans beforehand to suit your needs. If allowed in your area, modifications can be "marked up" (some people refer it as "red-lining") right on the plans.
    • What is mylar?

      Mylar

      Vellum paper is no longer being manufactured, so we've switched to a vastly superior product called Mylar. These semi-transparent sheets are actually a thin-film composite that was designed for plan modification, using a simple electric eraser. The ink that is printed on them sits on the surface (instead of sinking into a coated vellum sheet), so lines and dimensions can be erased and redrawn quite easily by any design professional.
    • Plans printed on Mylar

      Plans printed on Mylar

      If you - like the vast majority of our other customers - intend to modify the plans before construction, and you are building in an area where plans can't simply be "marked up" with a red pen, the Mylar copy is definitely what you should order (unless of course you prefer the PDF version). After the changes have been made to this "master" copy, you or your builder can then print as many copies as you need, whenever you need them, on regular bond paper. That way everyone - you, your builder, his or her subcontractors, local permit officials, and your lender - will have the final version of the plans to work with. Even though they cost a bit more initially, they will definitely save you time and money later on. Mylar copies come with a formal Copyright Release giving you the legal right to modify them in any way you wish, and to make as many copies of the plans as you need to successfully build one house. Mylar copies are shipped with a free bond copy of the plans, so that you have something to look over and mark up before making final decisions about the changes you want made to the "master" set.
    • What are PDF electronic files?

      PDF electronic files

      The acronym PDF stands for Portable Document Format. These are electronic files that can be emailed from computer to computer. You can open them on your own computer as well as email them to others, and the Copyright Release you receive with them allows you to make as many copies as you need before and after modifications are made.
    • Plans in PDF format

      Plans in PDF format

      THE most popular way to purchase plans these days is in PDF format. It's no more expensive than the Mylar version, plus you save $30 in shipping fees because the plans are emailed to you. But the biggest reason why they're so popular is because they can be passed along to others via email. The builder can zip them to their sub-contractors, truss manufacturers, and (if needed) an engineer; you can open them on your own computer to view at your home or office; and you can zip them to your builder (or builders), lender, and anyone needing to approve the plans before construction. If you'd still like to make modifications on Mylar sheets, your Copyright Release allows you (or your builder) to do this locally, and you'll only need to print a handful of the most important sheets.
    • What are CAD files?

      CAD files

      The acronym CAD stands for Computer-Aided Design. Design software from AutoCAD and numerous other companies - ArchiCAD, SoftPlan, VectorWorks, etc. - is used to draw plans in a format (DWG - short for drawing) that can be easily manipulated and modified on a computer. This can speed up the process of modification dramatically - for example, a change in one part of the plans creates an automatic change throughout the drawings -- potentially saving the person making the changes quite a bit of time, and thus saving you quite a bit of money!
    • Plans in CAD format

      Plans in CAD format

      Plans purchased in this electronic format are emailed, so you get them right away, and there's no shipping fee. Like the Mylar and PDF options, these plans come with a formal Copyright Release giving you the legal right to modify them in any way you wish, and to make as many copies of the plans as you need to successfully build one house. If the changes you wish to make to our plans are rather extensive, or structural in nature (including changing exterior wall systems), purchasing the plans in CAD format will almost certainly be your best option. Design professionals charge by the hour, and making changes to electronic files is much faster and easier than erasing and redrawing lines and dimensions on a Mylar copy. So purchasing an electronic version of the plans can save you both time and money. The files you receive will provide the drawings in at least two formats: .DWG files that will enable the person modifying your plans to do so using AutoCAD software (the standard for the entire construction and engineering communities); and .PDF files that will enable you to view the plans on your home or office computer. If the plans were originally drawn with a design software program other than AutoCAD (eg. SoftPlan, ArchiCAD, VectorWorks, etc.), this will be noted at the end of the Description of this house, and the email will include these files along with the .DWG and .PDF formats.
    Bedrooms

    We highly recommend that you click on two boxes – the number of bedrooms you know you need, and one less bedroom. For example, if you need 4 bedrooms, click on the boxes next to 4 and next to 3. Otherwise you will not see homes where existing rooms on the lower, main, or upper levels might work perfectly well as a bedroom instead of as an office, study, etc.
