The Banning Mills Lodge is a 3 story 5 bedroom house plan with a detached garage. The exterior is rustic and craftsman in style with features of stone, shake and board and batten. Large timbers and craftsman awnings make this home a site to see from the roadside and lake side. The rear is covered in windows so you can see the view of your lots from all over the home and also features a spacious rear porch. You enter the home to a foyer leading into an open vaulted living room connected to the dining and kitchen areas all on the rear of the home so you can easily enjoy the views of your lot. A vaulted master suite is on the main level with access to the rear porch as well as its own screened in side porch. On the upper level you will find one bedroom, a loft area and an open bridge overlooking the living area with great views out the rear of the home. The walkout basement can be unfinished or finished with 3 guest bedrooms, a theater room and a game room. This plan also comes with an optional 3 car garage that has a guest area and bedroom up above.
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.
