Banner Elk is one of our most popular plans. It is an open floor plan with a wraparound porch, walkout basement and first floor master suite. This version of our Banner Elk is slightly larger than the first version and has other minor improvements. An 8′-deep porch wraps around all four sides and is vaulted in the back for better views. French doors in the master grant access to the back porch. The foyer views extend to the rear of the house and it has a loft above that provides views to the family room and out the rear windows. The wraparound porch provides plenty of porch space to enjoy the views of your lot and the walkout basement allows for easy access to the lake. The basement features a recreation room, game room, and wet bar. This house plan can be built with either a 2-car garage and can be modified to fit your families needs.
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.
