Q:What is the fully enclosed box in the center of the floorpan with an “X” in it. I don’t see that it’s for venting or has some other purpose?

Q:1. Where is the stairs to the basement on the $125 basement foundation option? 2. What is the space with the "X" in it behind the linen closet?
A:The stairs are located on the outside rear wall of bedroom 2 and bedroom 1, outside entrance only. The X is where you can locate the HVAC on a slab foundation. If you decide to go with a basement foundation you may locate the HVAC in the basement, then you can use the X space as needed or desired.

Q:We are interested in this plan, however, were wondering if you could email us the floor plan for the basement option. Also, would it be possible for this to be built with 4:12 pitch or steeper, roof with trusses? And the walls 2x6, rather than 2x4? What would the cost be to change the plans accordingly? Appreciate your time. Michael Munson
A:Although this plan is available with a basement foundation, it is only a
service basement and not suitable for habitation. Also the small size
of this home prevents us from adding an interior stair down to the
basement unless additional square footage is added. A truss roof is
available and we can alter the roof pitch from 3:12 to 4:12. The
existing walls are 2x4, but can be changed to 2x6. To change the roof
pitch and exterior walls would be about $200 extra to plan cost. I'd
need to know more about the intended use for the basement before I can
quote on it.
