Upon entering the Appalachia, you have a view straight through to the large windows on the back of the family room. The kitchen, dining area, and family room are all open to each other and vaulted drawing you toward the views on the back of the home. The vaulted Master Suite is located on the main level and features a separate tub and shower as well as a walk in closet. A covered or screened porch with an outdoor fireplace sits on the rear of the house directly off the master suite. On the opposite side of the main level is a laundry room, a 1/2 bath, and two bedrooms that share a bath. One of the bedrooms has access to another covered porch off the back. The rear porches are connected by an open deck to take advantage of the views on the rear of the home. The lower level or basement can be finished to include boys and girls separate bunk rooms, a recreation room, and a wet bar. Part of the space on the lower level could also be used as a shop or storage. The exterior of the home features a combination of stone, board and batten, and shake along with timber columns and craftsman details.
Each set of plans includes:
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.
