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 7
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.

The arched opening at the entry stairs leads you to a covered porch before you enter the home. After entering the foyer space, there’s an arched opening to the right that leads you to a formal dining room with a wood box beam ceiling. In the middle of the ceiling, a round opening looks up to a library that’s located above. It’s an ideal location for a grand chandelier, as shown in the photos. To the left of the foyer, double doors open into an office space with a vaulted ceiling.

As you move further into the foyer, you pass a spiral staircase on the right that accesses the upper library, and you walk under a skylight that brings in light from a dormer above. The foyer then opens up to a large and open living/kitchen space with a curved wall of windows in the great room that look out to views at the rear. The ceiling line in the great room rises to a 20′ flat ceiling and slopes down at the rear wall, which is accentuated with wood beams. A central stone hearth holds a fireplace and space for media, and is flanked on either side with glazed doors with transoms above them. The doors look and walk out to a curved, covered deck with a succession of arched openings that look out to the views beyond.

The great room is open to the kitchen and breakfast nook area, both of which have a 10’–high ceiling. The huge gourmet kitchen features two islands, one of which accommodates a double sink, and each provides abundant counter space. An arched opening from the kitchen leads to a vestibule that accesses a walk–in pantry and butler’s pantry before opening into the formal dining room. At the breakfast nook, sliding glass doors open onto a partially covered smaller deck, which brings in natural light and plenty of ventilation. A staircase to the lower level is located between the nook and the great room, which further separates the open rooms. A large stone arch at the breakfast room looks into a cozy hearth room with a fireplace at one end that’s flanked with windows on either side of it, and features a vaulted ceiling. Sliding glass doors from the hearth room open onto the rear covered deck.

From the kitchen, another arched opening leads to a central mudroom with a coat closet and room for a bench. The mudroom accesses a large laundry room with a utility sink and a powder room, the garage space, stairs to the upper bonus room located over the garages, and a door that opens out to the secondary deck. An arched opening leads you to a small hall that has sliding glass doors that open and view out to the secondary deck, bringing in natural light to the hallway and mudroom. A door at the end of the hall opens into a guest suite, with windows on two walls, and a private full bath with both a shower and a tub, and a pocket door that opens into a walk–in closet.

Before entering the great room space, an arched opening off of the foyer leads to a powder room and the master suite. Double doors open into a huge master bedroom with a fireplace to warm the room, and a ceiling that slopes up to a 12′ flat ceiling in the center. At one end of the room, sliding glass doors open onto the rear curved deck, while the other side of the room features double glazed doors that walk out to a semi–private patio space that’s enclosed with a 2’–high wall. A hallway from the bedroom leads to a walk–in closet, a laundry room, a bigger walk–in closet that’s divided into two spaces, and a luxurious master bath. The bath features a private toilet room, two separate vanity sinks, a large shower, and a raised, round whirlpool tub that’s surrounded with five windows to provide the bather with multiple views and natural light.

The upper library space has a 7′ ceiling with a partial barrel vault at the double doors that walk out to the ‘Juliet’ balcony. The space above the two garages and carport sit under the slopes of the roofs, and provide 1,921 SF of additional space for building out or for storage. The space above the carport provides two large windows at either end that not only bring in sunlight, but open up the roofline at the exterior.

If you choose to build the basement level, you gain another 2,935 of living space! After coming down the stairs, you enter an open billiards/recreation room with a curved wall that mimics the one above. A fireplace is located in the center of the wall, and is flanked with windows on either side of it that look out to the rear covered patio space and beyond. A wet bar is located against one wall, and a pair of doors next to the bar open into a home theater, which has its own private bar. A powder room is conveniently located next to the staircase. This level also features plenty of space for storage, a golf room (if needed), an exercise room, a private vault (or wine cellar), and two bedroom suites. Both bedrooms feature a walk–in closet and their own private, full bath, while the suite located next to the exercise room also has a nook with bay windows that look out in three directions, and its bath features two vanity sinks, a private toilet, and both a tub and a shower. There is additional unfinished space where the original owners planned to have a future bedroom, which you can choose to leave unfinished or build out according to your needs.

    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.
