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 10.083
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.

As you walk under the arched opening of the front covered porch, you see arched transom windows framing the entry door and side light windows. It will be one of many arched openings that you'll walk under in this house. The formal foyer has a ceiling that slopes up to a 15' flat ceiling and has views through an arched opening to the dining room straight ahead. To the right, a pair of doors open into a large study with built–in bookcases and cabinets along the walls. A floor to ceiling arched picture window faces the front, flooding the room with sunlight and views, while small windows located above the bookcases bring in additional light. A file room is located off of the study, and a pair of French doors open onto a private terrace. To the left of the foyer there is a small vestibule that leads to a coat closet and a powder room. Built–in niches are also found on either side of the foyer, providing spaces for photos or art.

The formal dining room features a dramatic 14' ceiling and a large arched picture window that looks out to and through the rear terrace. It's open to a spacious great room with a vaulted ceiling that peaks at over 22'! Tall windows with transoms above them look out to another rear terrace that's covered, and also flank a central fireplace at the far end of the room. Glazed doors open to the terrace, which has a roof over a portion of it and a radiating open pergola with an outdoor fireplace, making it an ideal space to entertain guests.

From the foyer and dining spaces, two arched openings lead to a curved gallery hall with an alcove for furniture, a small built–in niche, and a long niche for a counter/wet bar/built–in. A butler's pantry is off the gallery and connects to the dining room through a pocket door. The gallery has a rear hall that accesses a walk–in pantry, a powder room, a janitor closet, a large walk–in closet, and the garages. Niches throughout the hall create spaces for a key drop, photos, and a bench. The garage spaces are divided into a three–car garage with a separate storage room, and a one–car garage with a separate storage room, room for a utility sink and counter, and a dog kennel if needed. There's even a dog shower!

The curved gallery leads to a spacious gourmet kitchen that has a sunny dining nook with sliding glass doors to the rear deck. The open room has a 10' high ceiling. Two kitchen islands provide abundant workspace, an eating counter, a prep sink, abundant drawer and under counter storage, and room for under counter refrigerators. Counters wrap around three walls, and there's space for a six–burner stove, two dishwashers and a double sink. A large arched opening leads to a magnificent hearth room with a ceiling that vaults to a flat ceiling that is almost 24'! A fireplace on one wall warms the room, while double glazed doors and windows with transoms above them bring in sunlight and views. At the other end of the hearth room there is a staircase that leads to the upper and lower (if needed) levels, and views to the upper balcony. A curved arched opening from the hearth room leads to a large vestibule that accesses a laundry room and a large craft room with abundant counter space and room for built–ins. A door from the craft room leads to a small 'dog' room with a sink and a door to the exterior, as well as a separate 'dog door' for your pet to use on their own.

Double doors open up to a magnificent master wing – a true haven for any owner! The master gallery leading to the suite has a series of bumped–out arched openings with windows and window seats on the right that provide views as well as lighting for artwork and furniture opposite them. A 19'x16'–10" walk–in closet, located off of the gallery, is a room in itself and has two additional storage closets. It connects to a luxurious master bath, which has an extra–large shower, a private toilet room, a separate tub, four different storage areas for linens, and a counter that wraps around two walls with two separate vanity sinks. At the end of the master gallery, you enter a master sitting room with a coffee bar, access to the bath, and double doors that open onto a private master courtyard. An arched opening from here leads to the master bedroom. This room features a fireplace that's flanked by built–ins, windows located on three walls – including full–height windows that look out to the master courtyard – and a ceiling that slopes up to a 12'8" flat ceiling.

The staircase to the upper floor has built–in shelves along both sides of the walls to hold books and display items. The top landing opens up to an oversized balcony with a curved portion that looks down to the hearth room below. The upper gallery mimics the master gallery with arched openings and furniture alcoves, and has three bedroom suites off of it. Bedroom 2 is the largest of the three bedrooms, and has a door to a half–bedroom/studio space making this room ideal for nanny's quarters or an in–law. The bedroom has a tray ceiling that slopes up to a 10' flat ceiling, while the half–bedroom has a 9' flat ceiling. Sliding glass doors open onto a spacious private terrace, and the large bath features two vanity sinks, an opening to a walk–in closet, a shower, and a separate tub. Bedroom 3 has a tray ceiling with an 8' flat ceiling, a walk–in closet, and a door to a private terrace that faces the front. Bedroom 3 has a full bath with a secondary door for public use. Bedroom 4 has a vaulted ceiling, a walk–in closet, and a private full bath with a corner linen closet. The upper gallery opens up to a large children's retreat space that has a furniture alcove, a closet for a stacking laundry unit, and access to abundant storage if needed. The original owners left this space unfinished, but if you choose to finish out the large open space, you could add additional bedrooms or make a wonderful open recreation room. A door at the far end of the storage room opens to a small outdoor terrace for additional ventilation. The children's retreat and gallery have 9' ceilings, while the storage space has an 8' ceiling.

If you choose to build the partial basement, it adds an additional 2,695 square feet! As you walk down to the lower level, there is a window seat and niches for books at the mid–landing. The lower level plan has an open layout with a billiards area and a media room with an area for sitting. A curved wet bar is located in one corner by the stairs, with a door to a wine cellar with a display case. A see–thru fireplace located in the media room warms the space as well as the exterior terrace located on the other side. Windows and glazed doors look out to the rear terrace, and a pair of doors from the room open into a large exercise room with high transom windows to maintain privacy. Doors from the exercise room access a mechanical/storage room. To the right of the stairs, a small hall leads to a powder room and a huge closet space that the original owners used for storing their off–season clothes and other items. Double doors from the hall open into a whole wing devoted to mechanical and more storage. The ceilings in the lower level range from 9'1" to 9'11".

    Brief Description

    This truly unique and luxurious home opens up in the rear with an "L" shape floor plan so that the living spaces and master wing have privacy and open views to the rear. It features outdoor terraces throughout the first level, a wing devoted to the master suite and master gallery, a craft room, an office, a separate entrance for dogs if needed, an upper gallery, and an upper children's retreat. Every bit of space is thoughtfully designed, such as the use of niches and built–ins found throughout the house, to make rooms and even the stairwell feel personable and intimate.

    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.
