Q:Is the "wall" and "post" in the dining structural or decorative (can it be omitted)? If it's structural, is there a drawing or another plan that has a picture as to how this would look on the inside?
A:I’m sorry. I’ve tried to locate some pictures to explain this design but wasn’t successful.
The post is a load bearing post but there aren’t any walls on each side of it. What holds the weight
are two beams in the ceiling that rest on top of the posts. It’s similar to false beams in a ceiling.
These are indicated by the dashed lines that are shown. They drop down at 12” and are usually
encased in sheetrock. The dining room is totally open to the other rooms.

Q:Thank you for responding back to my email. What if we were to reverse the plans where would be the option for the stairs then. Is there a way with reversing the plans you put a wall by the dining room coming into the house then add the stairs there. Thank you
A:Adding the stair between the breakfast rm and the family rm is the only place we can put it without increasing the sq footage.
It can be added along a wall inside the front door if we add 3 feet to the width of the house. That will keep your other room sizes the same.
We would also have to rework the windows on the front elevation to keep the balanced look.
I’m about to leave the office and won’t return until Friday. Feel free to ask any additional questions but I won’t be able to reply
until I get back.
Have a good Thanksgiving.

Q:Is their an option for this plan to add a loft.
A:Thank you for your interest in our home design.
We can definitely add a stair and loft to this plan. The only location for the stair would be
in the space between the family room and the breakfast area. You would lose the view
between the two rooms. I’ve attached an example of what I’m referring to.
The quote to do this for you would be $510.00 and it would be approx. 2 weeks before we could start on it.
Q:Where is the water heater and A/C unit located in this plan?
A:Thank you for your interest in our home design. The plan is designed for the units to be placed in the attic. There is a pull down stair in the hallway just outside of bath #2.
