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
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 walking through an entrance tower, you find yourself in a private courtyard space that has plenty of room for outdoor furniture and plants. The first things one sees upon entering the foyer are the 23′ high rounded clerestory tower with sunlight pouring in from the upper windows, and the view straight ahead to and through the curved stairwell within the glass enclosed curved walls. If you choose not to build the lower level, this space, with its 14′ tall round ceiling and 180–degree views, could be a truly spectacular extra room. Between the two is an open area for receiving guests. The ceiling in the foyer area, like all of the non–vaulted rooms on the main level, is set at a lofty 10′.

Round columns and arched openings delineate the open dining room space just to the left of the receiving area, and the columns continue around the curved stairwell balcony. Sliding glass doors in the dining room provide abundant sunlight and views, and they open onto an outdoor veranda for additional dining space. Also just off the open foyer space is a uniquely shaped study/bedroom that has a private full bath and a walk–in closet. A short hallway beyond the study/bedroom passes a spacious laundry room and a mud room before reaching an arched opening to the kitchen area. The mudroom has room for a large coat closet and a built–in bench with lockers above it, and a door opens to a four–car garage. If you only need parking for three cars, the remaining space would be perfect for a workshop.

The large gourmet kitchen features a center island with a prep sink and abundant workspace, and an enormous walk–in pantry. It’s open to a charming breakfast nook that has curved bay windows that look out to the rear veranda. A long peninsula countertop with an eating or serving counter separates the kitchen from the dramatic great room. This room features a vaulted ceiling that reaches 18′, and a large center fireplace with transom windows above that is set within a curved wall of glass. Glazed doors on the left and right side of the great room open onto the curved section of the rear veranda. Right off of the great room there is also a powder room, and a secondary staircase to the lower level.

To the right of the entry foyer, a round vestibule that reaches 12′ at the center provides access to both the master suite and an additional bedroom. Double doors open into a large master bedroom with views through sliding glass doors and windows that open to a private covered veranda. The bedroom also features a sitting area with a curved bay window looking out to the rear. A two–sided fireplace in the sitting area warms the room on cooler days and nights, and the bath located on the other side. A pair of doors opens into a luxurious master bath area. The bath features a jetted tub located next to the fireplace and set within corner windows, two separate vanity sinks in a large dressing area, a separate extra–large shower, a linen closet, and a private toilet room that has room for a bidet. The bath opens up to an enormous walk–in closet that has a door to a private side patio, and is filled with natural light from the curved glass windows with transom windows above. You may not want to leave this space once you’re in it! The second bedroom on this level (or third, if the study is used as a bedroom) has a unique and appealing shape, views to the front of the house, a full bathroom, and a walk–in closet.

As you follow the curved staircase down to the lower level, there are windows to look out of and to bring in sunlight every step of the way. You enter an open billiards/recreation room with a fireplace on one side, and a full bar with a curved counter straight ahead. The long curving bar has plenty of counter space behind it along with a sink, and much more counter space and cabinets on the back wall. A door in this back wall opens to a large wine cellar. This recreation area also has a media area, and sliding glass doors that open to a long covered veranda and an open patio beyond it.

A hallway beyond the media area leads to the secondary staircase, a home theater room, a bedroom suite with its own private full bath, and a large locker room that has a huge shower area, two vanity sinks, a private toilet room with a separate urinal, and room for a bench and storage lockers. The room has a door to the backyard for easy access. This would come in especially handy if you plan to build by a lake or a beach and would like to shower off upon coming into the house. To the right of the recreation room there is a small hall that accesses a powder room, a coat closet, and another bedroom suite. The large bedroom has sliding glass doors that open onto a private covered veranda, a sitting area, a private full bath, and a walk–in closet. The sitting area has curved bay windows that look out to the rear, and a small counter with a sink and under counter refrigerator. Abundant unfinished storage is also found throughout this level.

    Brief Description

    As spectacularly beautiful as the front of this luxurious home is, it pales in comparison to the rear of the house. The most striking elements are the rounded portions of the house, the walls of which are comprised mostly of glass. The effect, particularly in the evening, is breathtaking! The most striking of them is the curved staircase at the back that is surrounded by a two–story high curved glazed wall, providing magnificent views in all directions. The round elements create an element of surprise as well as striking features in this beautiful home.

    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.
