Key Specs

  • 2.5 Bathrooms

  • 2 Floors

  • 2 Garage

Plan Description

The exterior of this home may have the appeal of a traditional bungalow, but it includes every modern convenience imaginable. Enjoy a very private first floor master suite complete with a walk-in closet, separate tub and shower, and an abundance of natural light. The kitchen opens to a formal dining room scaled perfectly for big family gatherings. The spacious family room looks out into the back yard and provides a long wall for a fireplace, entertainment center, and built-in bookcases. Situated at the front of the home is a private study or living room, providing a quiet location for office work or formal entertaining. Upstairs you will find two equally sized bedrooms that share a fabulous Jack & Jill style bathroom. The optional bonus room provides the perfect getaway space, a home theater room, play space or even a guest room.

Crafted Green Home widths are based on 4' increments - less waste during construction. Bump outs are kept to a minimum. Extra corners are expensive, energy inefficient, and time consuming to build. Roof line is simple. Less waste and complication means savings that can be put into extra energy efficient appliances, solar power, and most importantly insulation. A smaller, but well functioning, living space means less energy is needed over the life of the home. A simple insulating envelope with equipment in conditioned spaces equals superior HVAC performance and less utility costs.

“We're taking the complication out of creating energy-efficient Craftsman-style home plans and communities. It's an incremental process that homeowners and builders don't have to be afraid of.”

Brooks Ballard founded Home Patterns LLC in 2001. With a Masters in Architecture from Georgia Tech and a Masters in City Design and Social Science from the London School of Economics, he brings a holistic perspective to the design of homes and communities.

Experience working with affordable housing experts to produce inexpensive houses that fit into surrounding bungalow neighborhoods lead Brooks to develop reinvigorated Craftsman style home plans that not only reduce the initial carbon footprints, but also work well in infill construction and newer, small-lot developments. It's a "build green" approach. Home widths are based on 4-foot increments for less waste during construction. Bump outs are kept to a minimum because extra corners are expensive, energy-inefficient, and time consuming to build. Roof lines are simple. Less waste and complication means savings that can be put into energy-efficient appliances, solar power, and/or insulation. Smaller but well functioning living spaces mean less energy is needed over the long haul. A smaller footprint means less valuable land is needed. More compact housing encourages walking and mixed use neighborhoods. This translates into healthier living, more freedom of movement and choice, and less reliance on polluting fossil fuels.

Brooks' home plan packages allow any builder to construct a first class energy-efficient and sustainable Craftsman-style home that's comparable in price to a "normal home." Energy-efficient, green details are called out separately on our Green Sheets so that a builder can learn incrementally. Think of the plan package as an introduction to sustainable design. The builders can learn and incorporate these details at their own pace while realizing the interconnectedness of each system.

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.
