After getting numerous requests to make our popular Dogtrot house plan larger we created the Big Dogtrot plan. On the exterior this Dogtrot style house plan really meets the eye. A mixture of craftsman, rustic and stone elements create the perfect blend to give it a true rustic lake or mountain house look and feel. Porches on the front and rear of the house plan will allow you and your family to take in the views of your surroundings from multiple areas of the house. Although the exterior of this plan is an eye catcher what really makes this plan spectacular is the seamless flow of the open floor plan. You enter the foyer to a vaulted family room with a large wall of windows looking over the lake or mountain range. On the right side of the main level you have the master suite with it’s own covered porch and sitting area. One the left side of the main level you will find the Dogtrot style screened porch with a fireplace connecting two guest bedrooms. The lower level features a walkout basement with a recreation room, game room and an additional master suite. It also features lake storage and two covered patios to sit with friends and family and enjoy your views.
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 maxhouseplans 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. 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. 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. New York, New Jersey, Nevada, and parts of Illinois require review by a local professional as well as some other areas. 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.
