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.
34.25
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 beautiful home features bay windows at the front and back, providing multiple views and letting in abundant sunlight. The use of stone, square columns, and wooden shutters gives the home an old world quality that is timeless.

The covered entry porch has a barrel–vaulted ceiling that is framed by square columns, and it is spacious enough to accommodate outdoor furniture. After entering the foyer, you have a view of the curved upper balcony above. To the left there is an arched opening framed by square columns that opens into a living room with a bay window. To the right, another arched opening leads to a formal dining room, which has a tray ceiling above, a pair of French doors that open onto the entry porch, and an arched opening with a built–in cabinet and counter. As you walk towards the two–story great room, you pass a small hall that accesses a coat closet and a powder room on one side, and a stairway on the other. The great room has a vaulted ceiling, and a stone fireplace with a built–in cabinet in one corner. A pair of sliding doors leads to a study that has an open box beam ceiling, and windows that look out to the rear deck. Glass sliding doors located between the great room and the kitchen area open onto the outdoor covered deck. The spacious kitchen has a freestanding counter with a sink and a raised bar for eating, a central work island, and a walk–in pantry closet. A breakfast nook has windows that look out to the rear, and a pair of glazed doors from the kitchen opens into an octagon–shaped sunroom. The sunroom has four walls with windows, which bring in abundant sunlight and views.

On one side of the kitchen a door opening leads to a small vestibule space with a built–in cabinet, which conveniently accesses the formal dining room. On the other side of the kitchen, another opening leads to a secondary staircase to the upper level, a powder room, and a hall that has room for a desk, a secondary refrigerator/freezer, and a coat closet. A door leads to a four–car garage. The one–car garage space would also make an ideal workshop, if desired.

The upper landing opens up to a wide balcony with curved railings on either side that look down to the entry foyer on one side, and to the great room on the other. The right wing is devoted to a master suite, which also accesses the secondary stairwell and has an upper laundry room. The spacious master bedroom features a barrel–vaulted ceiling, a two–sided fireplace, and an octagon–shaped sitting area that is located above the sunroom below. The sitting area has three walls of windows and a door that opens onto a private deck, and it is warmed by the two–sided fireplace. Sliding doors open into a spacious master bath, which has a Jacuzzi tub, a separate shower, two separate vanity sinks, and a private toilet room. A door from the bath leads to a large walk–in closet that is divided into two spaces. The larger closet space has a door that leads to an open storage room that is located over the one–car garage, and has two dormer windows for natural light. This space could be easily built out to create an exercise room or office.

Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a full bath, and each room has its own dressing area with a vanity sink. Bedroom 4 features a vaulted ceiling and has its own full bath.

The lower level has a spacious billiards and recreation room with a wet bar, a fireplace in one corner, and a built–in media cabinet. A ‘toy chest’ area is located under the sunroom and is octagonal in shape, with three walls of windows, creating a light–filled room for playing/reading. A small hall leads to a laundry room, an exercise room, an unfinished storage room, and another unfinished vault space. The vault space would be an ideal wine cellar as well. On the other side of the billiards room there is a full bath and a guest room with a walk–in closet. The full bath has a private room for the shower, and has a secondary door to the guest room.

    Brief Description

    The front of this beautiful home features multiple gables, lots of multi–paned windows, and a sweeping curved element below a circular “porthole” window. There’s a covered porch at the front, and a quite large covered deck at the rear framed by thick square columns. The walls at the rear of the house are filled with windows on both the main and upper levels. An octagonal section that protrudes from the rear right corner of the house provides a sun room with great views and a trayed ceiling on the main level, and an identical sitting area off the master bedroom that opens to a private deck.

    Select Optional Add-ons

       

    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.
