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.
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 11
  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.

The covered entryway rises to a dramatic 16′ curved ceiling that continues inside the house, and a huge semi–circular transom window is positioned above the 9′ tall double doors. This grand entry was meant to prepare you for the soaring two–story tall foyer! From the foyer space, you may descend three steps to enter either the living room on your right or the family room on your left. Stairs to the upper level are also accessed from the foyer, as is the formal dining room. At the base of the stairs on either side of the foyer, glazed French doors open to two small outdoor spaces framed by lovely balusters.

The sunken living room has a 22’–tall ceiling, and the outer wall has a pair of arched floor–to–ceiling multi–paned windows that provide light, views and a dramatic visual element. Next to the living room and nestled under the staircase is a wet bar that faces the family room. Beyond the living room in the right wing of the house, a light–filled hallway leads past a door to the rear pool/courtyard area to a study, a bedroom suite, and a powder room with a shower. The study features an 11′ ceiling with exposed criss–crossing beams, a curved bay of arched multi–paned windows, and a fireplace flanked by built–ins. The bedroom also has an 11′ ceiling, and it features a round sitting area surrounded by windows facing the pool (or courtyard) in the rear of the house.

The magnificent family room also features a 22′ ceiling. The entire rear–facing wall is composed of arched windows that nearly reach ceiling height, while the opposite wall has a see–thru fireplace between the family room and the formal dining room. The dining room has a decorative 12′ ceiling, and a wall of windows facing the front of the house. Tall arched column–supported openings separate the family room from the kitchen and the breakfast room, each of which have 11′ ceilings.

The kitchen features a center island with a prep sink and an angled peninsula counter with a double sink and a raised outer portion for serving or casual dining. One opening leads through a butler’s pantry to the dining room, while another leads to a large walk–in pantry and extra cooking space that was originally meant to be a small office space with a built–in desk, according to the drawings. The breakfast room is quite spacious, and it has a corner fireplace, a lovely bumped–out window seat, and a door to the rear patio. Between the kitchen and breakfast areas a short hall leads to another powder room, a second set of stairs to the upper level, a large laundry room, and a 3–car garage.

Double doors in this hallway open to the master suite. The master bedroom is quite spacious, and it features a 13′ ceiling, a round sitting area wrapped with windows facing the patio, and a see–thru fireplace between it and the master bath. There’s also a wet bar next to a door leading to the rear patio. Double doors open to a luxurious master bathroom. Two separated vanities flank a large soaking tub set beneath both a large window and a domed area in the 11′ ceiling. There’s a private toilet room that includes a bidet, an extra–large shower with views to the rear, and an enormous wardrobe space. Stairs in the bath area lead to a private retreat on the upper level.

The stairs off the foyer lead to a long loggia on the upper floor that overlooks the family room. At one end one door opens to a tiny balcony overlooking the pool/courtyard, while another door opens to a bedroom with a full bath and a very thin balcony. The ceilings in all three bedrooms on this level are set at 10′. At the other end of the loggia, three steps lead up to an elegantly appointed “game” room with a tray ceiling that is 11′ high in the center. The inner wall has built–in shelving, while the outer wall has glazed doors flanked by windows that open to a balcony that overlook the front yard. On the far side of the room an opening leads to a bumped–out space with a computer station, and a hallway to two additional bedrooms. Each has its own private access to a full bath (both baths have secondary doors for public use) and walk–in closet, a large window for light and views, and access to a large balcony overlooking the rear of the house.

Just beyond the computer station there’s a round sitting area at the top of the stairs from the kitchen area. Three windows in the curved wall make this a brightly lit space for reading or relaxing. Beyond the sitting area is a door that opens to a large media room with a 12′ ceiling. This room can also be accessed from the private retreat.

Brief Description

This gorgeous home is distinguished by its classic lines and details on the exterior, and by the soaring two–story ceilings in several areas of the interior. It has won several awards in the 2000 'Dallas Parade of Homes', including the Peoples Choice Award. The ornate entryway features tall pilasters and round columns framing the front door, and numerous round and oval windows add to the unique appearance of the exterior. The rear of the house wraps around a large space that would be ideal for a pool or an open courtyard.

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.


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?


    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.

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.
