Customer Reviews of this House Design:
This house plan has everything we dreamed of having in our home!|
My husband, Bill and I had searched online, plus had more than 30 plan books before agreeing on this house plan. We loved the large living room, master bedroom on opposite side from other bedrooms, and the many covered porches!
We truly love our home. We have a copper roof, modified the interior to accommodate our dining room table with 20 chairs. We placed a gas log fireplace in the corner of the living room with a 60" flat tv above.
It is truly the home we will live in forever, on a hill overlooking our almost 500 acre farm. We can sit on any of the 3 porches and have views forever. This plan has everything we dreamed of having in our home. It is a single storym so as we age, steps won't be a problem.
We love our home and have family members who have ordered the same plan to use for their future homes...
Thanks to everyone at House Plan Gallery for making our dreams a reality!

The larger version of the house North Americans really love. It has a his and her bath and gigantic closets for all the "good stuff" we just cannot throw away. Sunroom. Jet tub for her. Walk-in shower for him. Formal dining and breakfast. Wonderful master suite with office/nursery/hobby room/shop/whatever room off the master suite. Raised bar. Beautiful views out the back to keep an eye on the loved ones. Vaulted great room with fireplace and gas logs. A great house to come home to.
|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.
