Plan Description

Making the most of dormers and a covered front porch, this Southern
 Colonial rendition is as easy to live in as it is charming. Choose a
 side- or front-load garage as needed to fit your lot and your tastes.
 Interior spaces center around a two-story foyer with curved staircase. A
 den with built-in bookshelves lies to the right; a formal living room
 with bay window is on the left. 
 The back of the plan caters to family gatherings in a family room with
 fireplace, a dining area and an island kitchen. A half-bath opposes the
 stairs in the entry hall. Two family bedrooms, sharing a full hall bath,
 and the master suite are on the upper level. 
 The master bath has a walk-in closet, separate tub and shower and double
 sinks. Bonus space over the garage can be developed later into an
 additional bedroom or a handy home office.

What's Included In This Plan Set

  • Exterior Elevations
    In addition to the front exterior, your drawing set will include drawings of the rear and sides of your house as well. These drawings give notes on exterior materials and finishes. Particular attention is given to cornice detail, brick and stone accents, or other finish items that make your home unique.

  • Foundation Plan
    The foundation page dimensions, concrete walls, footings, pads, posts, beams, bearing walls, and any stepped foundation information along with any retaining wall info (schematic only). A typical wall section for the home is also usually included on this page (if not, it is elsewhere in your plan set, as space allows). If your plan features a poured concrete slab rather than a basement or crawlspace, the foundation page shows footings and details for the slab, and includes plumbing locations. If you choose the optional Slab foundation, the slab foundation will not be reflected in the plan sections.

  • Floor Plan(s)
    Exterior and interior wall framing, and windows/doors are dimensioned. Room sizes are indicated and any beams, posts and structural bearing points are called out. The floorplans include an electrical legend, and electrical fittings, lights and outlets are shown. Floor Plans will also indicate cross–section details (provided on the sections page) and show any special framing details applicable to the design. Cabinet elevations are included for kitchen and bathrooms; some designs feature cabinet elevations for design–related built–ins too.

  • Building Sections
    Building sections show changes in floor, ceiling, or roof height, and the relationship of one level to another. Our section pages also show how the stairs are calculated (if there are some!) and depict roof and foundation members. We try and draw sections to show the most useful information — choosing locations where there are elements you or your contractor might need clarification on.

  • Roof Plan
    Roof framing or truss directions are shown, slope directions are indicated and structural members are sized and called out if applicable. The gravity loads used to calculate the rafters, beams and posts are indicated , and we also show gutters, downspouts, and any roof venting required for your home.

  • Notes and Details Page(s)
    Your home comes detailed to meet the requirements of the latest adopted version of the ‘International Residential Code’, and our notes and details pages outline all the elements applicable to the design of your home. Compliance with further standards may need to be incorporated into your plan set, depending the requirements of your building department — these are usually done locally.
