Plan Description

This ranch has a hard-working entry with well-placed built-ins in adjacent areas. It has the great room everyone wants. The master suite is separated from the two additional bedrooms for privacy. The additional play space and study will keep the main living area clutter free. - Fine Homebuilding Magazine

Simplicity with great details - that is what the Rancho Vista plan is all about. It is 1872 square feet of living space with covered porches along the length of the front and rear. The split floor plan features three bedrooms, a play area adjacent to the secondary bedrooms and a study area directly off of the living room with sliding doors when privacy is needed. The living room features a fireplace and low built-in for a large flat screen. A wide sliding panel on an overhead track can be positioned to hide the TV when wanted or act as an accent feature when pushed off to the left for TV viewing. A 16' wide folding glass wall system opens the living area to the rear porch. Ample storage is provided with multiple built-ins and a spacious attic.

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.
