Butler’s Mill is a two story craftsman style lake house plan with a walkout basement and garage. A perfect blend of stone, shake and horizontal siding on the exterior of this home creates a cottage style feel from the roadside. The family room comes with a fireplace and is open to the dining room allowing you to easily communicate throughout the main living areas of the home. A vaulted screened porch on the rear also has a grill deck so you can cookout and enjoy the outdoors at the same time. The master suite has his or her closets on separate sides of the room and comes with a spacious bathroom so you and your spouse have plenty of space. The walkout basement has a recreation room, wet bar and guest bedrooms.

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.
