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 9
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.

This gorgeous home blends different styles to create a universally appealing design inside and out. The front of the house features traditional elements such as the wood 'plank' window shutters, the stone finish at the base, and the wood columns on stone pillars at the entrance and wraparound porch, while the rear of the house features abundant outdoor views, along with curved bay windows at the screened porch and the great room on the main floor, and the master sitting area on the upper floor.

The covered entry has a decorative barrel vault ceiling, and wood columns on tapered stone pillars that also outline the wraparound porch. After entering the foyer space, there is an open staircase straight ahead with an opening that looks up to the second floor, a formal dining room to the left, and a parlor room to the right. Both rooms have fireplaces to warm the spaces, curved bay windows that look out to the front, and 10'–high ceilings like most of the rooms on this level. The dining room has a sliding door that opens into a butler's pantry with a barrel vault ceiling and a counter with a sink and under counter refrigerator.

As you pass the central staircase on the right side, you pass a bookshelf niche and a small vestibule with double doors that open into a large office. The office has a closet in one corner and a built–in refrigerator and sink in another. The far wall has two large windows for views and natural light placed above and between built–in bookshelves and cabinets, and a door on a side wall opens onto the wrap–around porch.

Beyond the office, there are two (optional) steps down to the great room. This impressive space features a ceiling that vaults to over 20' and has exposed wood trusses that add some rustic warmth to the room. A stone fireplace hearth with a double–sided fireplace is located at the end of the room, flanked by a curved wall of windows on either side. These large picture windows, and three more just like them on the side wall, have additional windows above them for even more light and an expanded view. Built–in bookcases between two columns serve as a divider between the great room and a casual dining area. This room has windows that look out to the rear deck and beyond, and a glazed door that opens out to the deck. The deck has plenty of room for entertaining, and an outdoor fireplace for warmth in cooler weather.

The open kitchen has two center islands for maximum prep space and casual dining. Curved bay windows located above the sink provide lots of natural light as well as views to and through the rear deck area. There is an abundance of counter and storage space, and there's even room for two dishwashers! A door in one corner opens into a wonderful circular–shaped screened porch with a small fireplace. A short hallway from the kitchen leads to a craft room that also opens to the screened porch, a huge walk–in pantry with room for a freezer, and a spacious laundry room with a utility sink. Another opening by the secondary staircase to the upper level leads to a mudroom with plenty of storage space, and a powder room. A door from here opens into a large two–car garage that has an adjoining single–car garage space.

Both staircases bring you to a large landing on the upper level that provides access to the master suite, three additional bedrooms, and a huge playroom above the garage. A pair of doors off the landing open into the master suite. The master bedroom has a 10' ceiling with a soffit surround (the rest of the rooms on this level have 9' ceilings), and windows that look out to the rear and side. A lovely circular sitting area with a fireplace is located over the screened porch on the main floor, providing a cozy space to relax, read, and enjoy the multiple outdoor views. A pair of doors from the bedroom open into a luxurious master bath area. A large soaking tub on the left sits beneath a pair of windows. The bathroom features a U–shaped counter with two vanity sinks, a private toilet room, and a separate shower space. A door from the bath opens into a huge walk–in closet and dressing area that's divided into two spaces.

From the master suite, if you walk straight down the hall, you find the door to bedroom 2, which has a window seat that looks out to the side and a private full bath with a connecting walk–in closet. Bedrooms 3 and 4 both have window seats that look out to the front, and each has its own private full bath. These two bedrooms also share a play area that features a curved wall with windows that look out to the front. A large playroom/recreation room on this level has three dormers with window seats that open up the ceiling height. The playroom has a large linen closet for a stacking washer/dryer, and a design for a future full bath.

If you choose to build out the entire lower level, you'll gain an additional 3,184 square feet of living space. After coming down the stairs there is a large exercise room on the right, and a storage space straight ahead that provides access to a vault room. Turning left at the bottom of the stairs leads you past a guest room with a full bath on your way to the entertainment portion of the lower level. There's a sunken media area with a fireplace and views to the rear, and a huge open area for billiards and gaming that's serviced by a full bar. A wine cellar is located behind the bar, as is an extra large storage area. Large sliding glass doors in the billiards area look out to and open onto an outdoor covered patio. From the gaming area, a door opens into a large circular guest suite that sits under the screened porch above. The curved wall has windows that provide a 180–degree view, and a glazed door that walks out to the patio. It features a full bath with a private toilet room and two vanity sinks, and a walk–in closet. Most of the rooms on this level have a 9'9" ceilings.

    Brief Description

    This magnificent house was originally constructed to have fantastic views to the rear from every level, but there are great views to the front and one side as well. There's a covered front porch framed by handsome square columns that wraps around one side, and a huge rear deck next to a round–shaped screened porch (or sunroom) that spans the entire rear of the house. There's a fireplace in the great room that can be enjoyed from the deck, and another in the screened porch/sunroom. The upper level features a spectacular master suite, three additional bedrooms, and a large playroom with views in three directions.

    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.

    $150
       

    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.
