Plan Description

Mid Century architecture has had a popular resurgence and this design reflects that aesthetic with great style. Generous room dimensions and amenities are rare in a house of this square footage, but this plan delivers it all.

Inspired by Mid Century modern the goal on this design was to provide as much luxury as possible in a very economical and compact layout. One Bedroom can easily be used for an office while the Master Suite is secluded from the other Bedrooms, Bath and Laundry.

A comfortable Master Bath is designed to provide a spa like environment with its large whirlpool tub, large shower with seat, and roomy double vanity. A spacious walk in closet can be organized in many different arrangements per owner requirements.

The other Bedrooms also have walk in closets and, more, there is a large linen closet in the Hall and a coat closet in the Foyer where either place can accommodate vacuum cleaners and other household necessities often overlooked in many plans.

A dramatic fireplace wall in the Great Room also has space for a media system that can easily be connected to the Master Suite and rear outdoor spaces.

Note that the Kitchen is extraordinarily efficient yet provides plenty of storage plus a three foot wide and two foot deep pantry. Have your guests chat with you while sitting at the curved island bar. You can cook and still be among all your friends and family or watch television and listen to music when on your own.

Also note that there are two walls that can accommodate a king bed plus night stands in the Master Bedroom giving you flexibility and chances to rearrange in the future should the mood strike. Secondary Bedrooms are large enough to hold queen size beds and a large dresser. You may arrange furniture in the Great Room with formal or informal settings.

Vaulted ceilings throughout the house make room for indirect lighting details that are designed for the Great Room, Master Bedroom, and Bathrooms. Install dimmers and set a warm and intimate mood in the evenings without glaring flood lamps mounted in the ceiling.

Artist images may slightly vary from final design.

Important Information

All sales on house plans and customization/modifications are final. No refunds or exchanges can be given once your order has started the fulfillment process.

All house plans from Houseplans are designed to conform to the local codes when and where the original house was constructed.

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.

To find out what documents you should expect with your house plans, see what's included?

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, but not limited to, 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 aren’t 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.
