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 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 luxurious home has fine wood finish and trim work throughout the interior spaces, creating an atmosphere that feels warm and rustic. The curved stone veneer wall, where the open stairwell is located, rises from the lower roofs, and gives the house a distinctive appearance.

The covered front porch is large enough to hold furniture, so you can relax and enjoy the front views. The entry foyer is wide and generous, with a 10′ ceiling and an open curved stairwell to the right. The curved stairwell allows an open semi–circle, which is open to all three levels, if you choose to build the basement level. As you walk to the living areas at the rear, you pass a powder room on your left, and a formal dining room on your right. The dining room has a nook for built–ins/cabinetry, and a door to a covered deck that wraps all the way around the great room. Like all the rooms on this level except the great room, the ceiling is set at a lofty 10′. The living areas are all open to each other, so that you have views into all the spaces, which are framed and delineated to the eye by wooden posts.

Across from the dining room is a beautiful built–in bar with a wrap–around counter, which is conveniently located next to the open gourmet kitchen and a large walk–in pantry. The kitchen is very spacious, and includes a large center island with a sink on top that has plenty of room for casual eating and/or serving on the far end, and provides plenty of additional counter and cabinet space. Sinks in the corner are set beneath windows that look out to both the side and the grill area in a covered portion of the rear deck. If an operable window is installed, things can be passed between the grill and the kitchen.

A sliding door from the kitchen opens into a large mudroom that includes a laundry area, closet spaces, and a powder room. One door opens to the rear of the house, while another opens to a four–car garage with plenty of room for a workshop, if needed.

A hearth room is located between the kitchen and the great room. An optional two–sided fireplace with wide angled windows on either side is at the far end, facing the open portion of the rear deck. There’s another wide window that looks out to the covered grill area. A glass door on one side of the hearth room opens to the grill area, while another on the opposite side provides access to the open deck area and the covered section next to it.

The dramatic great room is located a couple of steps down from the rest of the living area. It has a vaulted ceiling – rising from 16′ to 19’6″ – with exposed wood beams, and a corner fireplace that spans the two–story height of the room. Both outer walls of the great room are completely filled with picture windows topped by transom windows, so views and natural light are abundant. Railings on either side are the only separations between the great room and both the dining room and the hearth room.

The upper floor landing opens into a large loft space, which would be ideal as a place for study or play. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are located off of the loft space, and each has its own private full bath and walk–in closet. Bedroom 2 has a vaulted ceiling and views to the side, while Bedroom 3 has a 10′ ceiling and a bumped–out space with a built–in seat beneath a pair of windows. As you go down the hall towards the master suite, you pass a full bath and a laundry room on your left, and just beyond the door to Bedroom 4 on your right there’s a balcony with views to the great room below. The master bedroom is quite spacious, and it has a vaulted ceiling that angles to the two far corners. A three–sided bay has windows in two sections, and a glass door in the third that opens to a private deck. Sliding doors open into a long master bath, with a Jacuzzi tub in one corner beneath windows on either side, a separate shower in the other corner, two vanities, a private toilet room, and a huge walk–in closet with a pass–thru to the laundry room.

As you descend the stairs to the lower level, you pass a study that is located at the mid–landing. This room has a 10′ ceiling, and a total of five windows facing the front and side. The lower level has a guest bedroom, a large office with a closet and an optional fireplace in one corner, an exercise room, a full bath with a private sink area and a full–size sauna, and an open recreation room with a wet bar and a fireplace. There is also additional storage space, and even a vault space off of the storage room.

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.
