Independence Bungalow can accommodate a young family's needs with the potential for 3 to 5 bedrooms and then convert over time to meet life's changing circumstances. With the potential for upstairs and first floor owners' suites, the first floor bedroom suite can serve as a private guest room when the family is young and parents need to be on the second floor with children. The second floor's flexible floor plan can be divided into as many as three additional bedrooms. As owners age and children move out, the first floor bedroom suite can become the owners' bedroom and the upstairs space used for visiting children and grandchildren, a private location for an adult child still living at home or for a temporary or permanent caregiver. An additional bedroom on the first floor can be used as a home office near the front entrance, as a first floor guest room or as a hobby area. No need to ever move. Independence Bungalow has "Designs for Life" features with wider hallways, doorways and stairs as well as turning radiuses in the laundry room and the first floor owners' bathroom. The abundance of strategically placed windows creates natural light that boosts the spirit, saves energy and helps those who may be visually impaired. There is a stairway in the garage to the basement for taking items for storage and providing workers who need to service and repair mechanicals with a convenient and safe access to the basement. With all these practical features, Independence Bungalow's open floor plan, 8 ft. deep welcoming front porch and screened rear porch provide plenty of room for entertaining indoors and out. Its compact design will fit on small or narrow lots and reduce building costs with its simple Arts & Crafts Bungalow lines. Independence Bungalow is the first of our "Designs for Life" bungalows providing livability, affordability and flexibility for life's changing circumstances while maintaining the historic beauty of The Bungalow. This 2128 sq. ft. 3 bedroom 3 bath bungalow includes a screen porch at the rear -- for dining adjacent to the L-shaped kitchen. There is a pantry between the kitchen and the master suite and a mud room entry from the garage. Near the front door is a home office. Upstairs is a third bedroom, bath and sitting room -- this floor could function as a separate suite.

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.

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.
