Open and airy, this home will charm you inside and out. Welcome home to the Willow Cottage. A house that lives larger than itís true size. Open from the front of the Kitchen to the Rear Covered Porch this house will look huge. The Great Room has a 10'- 0" tray ceiling and accented with double French doors. A large Dining Area separates the Kitchen from the Great Room. The Kitchen was created with the chef of the house in mind. There are lots of cabinets, a movable island, a walk-in Pantry, and a raised snack bar. The Master Bedroom and private Master Bath and walk-in closet give plenty of room for storage. Bedroom 2 is cozy and has a built-in desk area. Bedroom 3 is quaint and has access to Bath # 2. You can also access Bath #2 from the hall, for guests. The Laundry is spacious with lots of cabinets for storage. There are two porches. The front covered porch is long, and the rear covered porch is very deep... the perfect spot to relax after a long day.
|House Plan Features:|
Please note that in most areas of the country, these house plans will be everything you need to build, but not necessarily everything you need to obtain a building permit.
In addition to the house plans you order, you may also need a site plan that shows where the house is going to be located on the property. You might also need beams sized to accommodate roof loads specific to your region. Your home builder can usually help you with this. You may also need a septic design unless your lot is served by a sanitary sewer system. Many areas now have area-specific energy codes that also have to be followed. This normally involves filling out a simple form providing documentation that your house plans are in compliance.
In some regions, there is a second step you will need to take to insure your house plans are in compliance with local codes. Some areas of North America have very strict engineering requirements. Examples of this would be earthquake-prone areas of California and the Pacific Coast, hurricane risk areas of the Florida, Gulf & Carolina Coasts. New York, New Jersey, Nevada, and parts of Illinois require review by a local professional as well. If you are building in these areas, it is most likely you will need to hire a state licensed structural engineer to analyze the design and provide additional drawings and calculations required by your building department. If you arenít sure, building departments typically have a handout they will give you listing all of the items they require to submit for and obtain a building permit.
Additionally, stock plans do not have a professional stamp attached. If your building department requires one, they will only accept a stamp from a professional licensed in the state where you plan to build. In this case, you will need to take your house plans to a local engineer or architect for review and stamping. In addition, plans which are used to construct homes in Nevada are required to be drawn by a licensed Nevada architect.
