Plan Description

This stylish single-story modern house is inspired by mid-century modern Eichler tract homes and is suitable for flat to moderately-sloped lots. Large glass windows and sliding glass doors connect house and garden. All rooms have vaulted paneled ceilings. In the major rooms, windows rise all the way to the ceiling. Grooved exterior plywood siding is specified to match the same used on the Eichlers. The simple roof structure can be constructed out of SIPs (Stucturally Insulated Panels) or 2x10's framing, although SIPs are strongly recommended in this application. The foundation is slab on grade that may have to be modified to suit some local soil conditions. The house is designed to handle different wind and seismic loads without any changes to the design by simply increasing nailing in shear walls. The SIPs roof is designed to handle 65 lbs/square foot total load. The 2x10 roof is designed to handle 40 lbs/square foot of live load with maximum allowable deflection.

Meet the Designer - Robert Nebolon

null - Houseplans.com
“You should not have to spend a lot of money to get something well designed. I like the challenge of adapting mass-produced items to suit particular needs.”

Robert holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Washington. His award-winning residential designs have been featured in Sunset magazine and Sunset books, SF magazine, Los Angeles Times magazine, American Homestyle & Gardening magazine, Creative Homeowner magazine. Architectural Record's Greensource magazine is publishing one of his designs in January 2009. He balances an imaginative contemporary approach to design with a practical understanding of construction; and he knows how to stretch a budget without compromising quality. He received the Grand Award for Sustainable Design from the American Institute of Architects /California Council in 2008. Robert's exclusive "Palomino" plan draws inspiration from mid-century modern Eichler subdivision houses – in fact Robert and his wife Carrie and their two young sons live in one. His new plan updates the Eichler idea with such eco-friendly elements as low-e glass skylights, a roof that's composed of 10.5 inch-thick Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) and is designed to support photovoltaic panels, and a fireplace insert instead of a conventional wood-burning fireplace (note that such units do not require a chimney).

For a description of how Robert updated his own Eichler kitchen on a tight budget visit http://www.marinij.com/lifestyles/ci_10395829.

Tip: Adapt prefabricated cabinets from Ikea for a custom modern look that's affordable. For his own kitchen, Robert says: “I wanted a tall cabinet with drawers in the lower half and doors in the upper half, but Ikea doesn't do that so I simply stacked two wall cabinets over a base cabinet with drawers. It looks and works terrific and holds a lot.”
