The first thing you notice as you enter the Asheville Mountain House is the beautiful wall of glass at the rear of the family room. A vaulted ceiling, a stone fireplace, and exposed timber beams give the family room a cozy mountain lodge feel. The kitchen, dining area, and family room are all open to each other and enjoy the same views. A golf garage, laundry room, and pantry are conveniently located just off the kitchen. The master suite is located on the main level and enjoys a private covered porch. The master bath features a soaking tub, a walk in shower, and a walk in closet.The upper level includes two bedrooms that each have a walk in closet and a private bath. Each upper bedroom features a dormer overlooking the rear views. These dormers are sized so that a regular size mattress can be placed in them creating an over sized window seat/bed if the owner chooses. An open loft overlooking the family room connects the upper bedrooms. The lower level can be finished with a recreation room, a wet bar, a hall bath, and girls and boys bunkrooms. A workshop and lake storage is also a possibility on the lower level.
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.
