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 12
  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.

Coming off the covered front entry porch, you enter a foyer space with a two–story ceiling that is over 23' in height! An open curved stairwell with a decorative wrought iron railing is located to the left, and to the right an arched opening framed with large round columns leads to a formal dining room with a ceiling that coves from 12' to 13'. The dining room has another small arched opening to a butlery as well as a wine cellar. Large side–by–side arched windows in the dining room look out to the front, providing abundant views and natural light.

Straight ahead from the foyer space is an open living room that also has a two–story ceiling. Two huge arched picture windows that rise almost to the 23' ceiling are set between three thick columns and look out to the center courtyard. To the right of the living room, two arched openings lead to a large den space with a tray ceiling that reaches 11'. A center fireplace flanked by built–ins warms the room. Windows look out to a side covered patio space, and an arched opening in one corner leads to the kitchen and breakfast nook.

The open kitchen has plenty of space for the gourmet chef, including space for an oversized center island with a sink and an extended counter for eating. The kitchen features a large walk–in pantry, a niche that accommodates a 6'–wide refrigerator/freezer, a tremendous amount of counter space, and an arched window above the sinks that looks out to the front of the house. A glazed door in the breakfast nook walks out to a covered side patio with a fireplace in one corner for cooler weather, fans located on the 14'–high ceiling for warmer weather, and an open colonnade with arched openings that frame the surrounding outdoor views. Another opening in the kitchen accesses a small hall that leads to a powder room, a hobby room, and a stairwell to a lower basement room, if you choose to build this out.

From the den, a small vestibule leads to another powder room, the enclosed courtyard, and the master suite. The master bedroom has a decorative tray ceiling that's 11'–high in the center, and a sitting area with a beautiful curved bay window that's separated from the bedroom by an arched opening that spans the entire width. Columns at either end of the arched opening further delineate and detail the spaces. A glazed door on the opposite side of the bedroom opens out to a covered patio space with three columns separating it from the center courtyard. Next to it, another pair of doors open to the huge master bath. The bath area features two separate vanity counters and sinks, an oversized shower, a separate tub, a private toilet room with a bidet, and niches for built–ins or furniture. A pair of doors from the bath open into an extra–large walk–in closet. From the closet, doors open to a private safe room and to a utility/laundry room. The laundry room also has a door that accesses the exterior courtyard.

Returning to the foyer space, on the left there is an optional elevator as well as a coat closet. Across from them a pair of doors open into an impressive library. The library features a box beam ceiling with wood beams, and a fireplace hearth that's surrounded by built–ins. Three windows bring in light that reflects off the beautiful wood used throughout the room and ceiling. A hallway leads past the library to a guest suite with a full bath and a tray ceiling with exposed wood beams that slopes from 10' at the sides to 12' in the center. The hallway has a decorative ceiling with groin vaults that rise from 10' to 11'8". It also accesses a second utility/laundry room, and a four–car garage. A door in the center of the garage provides direct access to the enclosed courtyard area.

On the other side of the garage there is an open exercise room with a full bath, room for a kitchenette and a future sauna, and a cabana/lounge space. Another storage room is located by this space.

At the top of the stairs to the upper level, a small curved balcony looks down to the living room below. A game room with plenty of storage room and an outdoor balcony is located right next to the stairwell. Farther down the hall, bedrooms 3 and 4 are located across from each other. Both rooms have their own full baths, walk–in closets, and outdoor balconies. Bedroom 4 shares the L–shaped balcony with the game room, and its bath has two additional doors that open from the game room and the hallway. At the end of the hall, double doors open to a large theater room with a snack room and bar for food and drink.

    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.
