Plan Description

The Plat House 3\ \ The Plat House 3 is a larger version of the two bedroom Plat House design (Plan 431-2), Greg La Vardera's most popular house plan. Although many people over the years have built the two bedroom version of the Plat House, many others have requested a three bedroom version. This house is called the plat house because it is surrounded on three sides by deck space and most of the interior space is open to the view as if the entire house is one big deck. The design is based on a guest house I worked on in 1995 and which has been updated, completely redesigned actually, to offer as a stock plan. The living area in this house is an open flowing space. The living room includes a windowed bay that extends out under the porch roof and puts you out into the landscape. You will find the kitchen has a similar space that is ideal for a table. The rear wall of the house has high windows that provide privacy from the approach side of the house. But the back wall also provides for the real anchor of this design, the storage wall that runs the entire length of the house. Starting in the utility room, running through the entry, morphing into an entertainment center in the living space, a pantry in the kitchen, and the closets for the master bedroom, this rivals the storage of a much larger house. Facts: One story wood framed dwelling with crawlspace, and metal roof. Spaces include an entry, living room, kitchen, master bedroom, master bathroom, two bedrooms, bathroom, and mudroom. foot print: 84ft x 25ft (101ft x 35ft w/decks as shown) living room: 18ft x 25ft (L shape) kitchen: 8ft x 25ft master bedroom: 12ft x 18ft bedroom 2 & 3: 12ft x 12ft laundry/utility room: 12ft x 5ft

Meet the Designer - Greg La Vardera

“Our designs are flexible and allow different people to use them in different ways. It is possible to build our designs with conventional methods familiar to any builder, or to introduce unique materials.”

Gregory La Vardera graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. He started his own practice in 1994 specializing in light residential and commercial work and has recently branched into contemporary stock house plans. Extensive experience in common building techniques helped shape his designs, which suit a variety of sites, celebrate indoor-outdoor living, and use simple forms and materials in expressive ways. One plan even draws inspiration from the mid-century modern houses built by the California community developer Joseph Eichler. The plans include one and two story designs.

NEWS: Check out the October 2008 Met Home magazine for a fine article by author/editor Karrie Jacobs on how architect Greg La Vardera is making modern house plans affordable, and on his exclusive relationship with The article points out that Greg's “Plat House” is his best seller.
