The Bent River Cottage is a two story small rustic cottage floor plan that will work great on a small lake lot. This floor plan is a version of our popular River Bend house plan. You enter the home through the foyer to an open living room, dining room and kitchen. The living room is vaulted creating a living large feeling and has a two story stone fireplace. It also has access to a covered screened porch with a stone fireplace. Windows throughout all the main living areas provide for great views of the lake and your lot. The master bedroom is located on the main level and has access to a covered porch. On the upper level you will find two bedrooms, a storage room and an open loft overlooking the living room below. The exterior of this home has a creative mixture of craftsman and rustic elements creating the perfect lake or mountain feel.
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.
