Boardwalk 1.0. This house expands when necessary: every major room
opens to a boardwalk, deck, or screen porch. The design showcases the
structural frame and is organized as a simple, almost toy-like gabled
house that uses "clipped on elements" such as stairs, a saddlebag-like
screened porch, a covered walkway, and a fireplace to express changing
functions. It's a contemporary interpretation of the early American
"dogtrot" house, which is a covered breezeway between two enclosed
rooms. The plan provides a way to cinch house and site together for easy
indoor-outdoor living. Ross Anderson uses ordinary materials in elegant
ways to produce an architecture of simplicity and sophistication.

Mirror Reversed Sets
A mirror-reversed set is a printed copy of your house, resulting in the same image you would see if you held the drawing up to a mirror. Everything, including the text, is backward in relation to the original design. These kinds of drawing are typically used to reorient an original plan more advantageously on a site, either because the homeowner prefers it that way or because of limitations of the site itself. Note: Mirror reverse sets are only available with a 5 copy or 8 copy set. With a Reproducible, PDF, or CAD set, you can print mirrored copies locally. In addition: 5 Copy set selected, should only allow 4 mirrored sets to be selected. 8 Copy set selected, should only allow 7 mirrored sets to be selected.
Unless you buy an “unlimited” plan set or a multi-use license you may only build one home from a set of plans. Please call to verify if you intend to build more than once. Plan licenses are non-transferable and cannot be resold.
