Previous Ask The Designer Q & A

Date Posted: 20-Mar-19

Question: Could you please provide me with the dimensions of the following areas? Thank you! 1. Foyer 2. Second (or guest) bath 3. Utility 4. Pantry 5. Bedroom closets
Answer: Foyer – 7-11 x 5-11 Bath 2 – 7-6 x 6-0 Utility – 5-4 x 6-8 Pantry – 4-0 x 3-3 Closets – 7-7 x 2-0
Date Posted: 05-Mar-19

Question: If I choose to order plans that include the attached garage option, will that increase square feet of living space?
Answer: Yes, slightly. It adds approximately 30 SF to the utility.
Date Posted: 30-Jul-18

Question: I recently purchased this plan and am going to start building in August. My contractor is having trouble finding the decorative truss's for it. Do you know a site where I can have these made exactly like the drawings? I am really excited to start building and am trying to make it exactly like the pics. thank you, Brandon Walls
Answer: The trusses are a custom item.
Date Posted: 24-Jul-18

Question: are any of the ceilings vaulted? Or is it a standard flat ceiling throughout?
Answer: Ceilings are 10’ flat everywhere but the master suite which has a stepped ceiling to 11’.
Date Posted: 26-Feb-18

Question: So if I choose a slab or crawlspace, both sets of stairs would stay? One with door and the other set by fireplace? Or will the steps by fireplace be excluded? Lisa
Answer: he steps going down from the foyer would go away and become a closet.
Date Posted: 09-Jan-18

Question: Do the plans include details of the custom decorative arches? Do you have plans with open beam ceiling in the family room, great room, kitchen areas? Of course that would eliminate the upstairs bonus rooms....
Answer: Our plans include details of the exterior arches. We show the bonus option as standard in our plan with no interior trusses.
Date Posted: 08-Jan-18

Question: If you don’t build the basement, do those stairs leading to the basement go away in your plan? Does fireplace shift to bedroom wall if basement stairs are gone? Just leaving back stairs on the other side of fireplace to bonus room?
Answer: he stair also serves as access to the bonus above. So the fireplace stays where it is.
Date Posted: 08-Jan-18

Question: with the attached garage plan, is there enough room (height) above the garage to add a bathroom and studio bedroom?
Answer: Yes, there is about 12’ of width(5’ tall sidewalls) x the length of the gable(24’). Only thing that needs to be figured out is stair location.
Date Posted: 04-Dec-17

Question: Getting ready to purchase lot and wondering the front footage of house plus detached garage at an angle as shown in picture?
Answer: In the rendering, we have about 92’ total width.
Date Posted: 29-Jun-17

Question: What is the ceiling height on the main floor?
Answer: 10 feet
Date Posted: 17-May-17

Question: Do you know where we might the material for the arches shown or are they custom made?
Answer: They will have to be custom made by a timber truss company.
Date Posted: 28-Apr-17

Question: Hello, Just wondering how much higher the house would have to sit if this was not a walk-out basement but just a regular? could you still make the front entrance "level" with ground?
Answer: You would need a minimum of 8” clearance below the bottom of the basement wall for drainage. That would mean about 1’-8” from finish grade to finish floor on the high side.
Date Posted: 19-Apr-17

Question: How can 46ft 11 in x 53 ft be 1421 sq ft living area?? Please explain...Need sq ft per room label please. Thanks
Answer: Those are the outside dimensions. Its not a rectangle shape either, there’s lots of ins and outs. The heated area is calculated from the outside face of the exterior walls, following the perimeter. We do not have room by room SF’s. You can get a rough idea though by using the numbers labeled on our floor plans.
Date Posted: 22-Mar-17

Question: I love this plan and I am excited that it is available with a walkout basement. However, our property slopes with the high side at the back of the house and the low side at the front of the house. Is is possible to have the walkout basement be at the front of the house?
Answer: I guess it possible but not very practical for this particular design. A two story design with living areas on the lower level might make more sense.
Date Posted: 17-Mar-17

Question: PLan 65870, this plan has exterior gable moldings. Is there a company I can buy them from if we purchase these prints?
Answer: We call those out to be cut from cedar but there is a company called ‘Fypon’ who can make those in molded millwork.
Date Posted: 13-Mar-17

Question: We really like the detached garage set up. We are wondering if the upstairs has a space that could be lived in small apt. We have built a $350 sq ft pump house which would match the design of this plan perfectly. We intend to build the garage first live in it while building the house. Are the ceilings currently high enough to stand up in. Can the garagre be redesgned a bit to have a small kitchen bedrom and bath. would be comforatbel in 500 to 650 sq ft We had thought maybe a 21/2 to three car garage. What would redesigning the garage plan run? to accomicate a small apt
Answer: The attic over the garage allows about a 12’x22’ space that has 5’ tall side walls. With a 12:12 pitch that’s pretty easy for the average person to stand up in. The only thing you have to work out is a stair.
Date Posted: 06-Mar-17

Question: Would the addition of the walk out basement and attached garage need to be on a sloping lot so that the garage and main level line up? That is the only way I can understand it working. Am I correct? Thanks so much. Excited to get this plan rolling
Answer: Yes. The lot would be best if it slopes away perpendicular to the back of the house.
Date Posted: 12-Jan-17

Question: With the addition of the walk out basement, would there be a way to attach the garage to line up with the main floor and enter the mud room? Thanks much
Answer: Yes, that option is already available. See Elevation B.
Date Posted: 11-Jan-17

Question: Would there be any reason you couldn't put a metal roof on this house ? I will need to be aprox 4' above grade can your drawings accommodate that ? Rusty
Answer: Metal roof would work fine on this house. Our drawings show a 2’ above finished grade finish floor. If you need a 4’ high finished grade, there would have to be a modification to the drawing for a fee, but its an easy change.
Date Posted: 03-Jan-17

Question: Do you have any interior pictures of this plan of a real build? Is it a possibility to relocate the kitchen to where the spare bedrooms are located giving extra room for master and relocating stairs where kitchen is?
Answer: Those are some pretty extensive modifications, but it could be done.
Date Posted: 30-Nov-16

Question: can you tell me what the total sq footage of the windows is?
Answer: I’m sorry, we do not have that number readily available.
Date Posted: 17-Oct-16

Question: Does this floor plan come in a slightly larger size?
Answer: Not at this time, no.
Date Posted: 02-Jun-16

Question: What are the sizes of columns for porch and what type
Answer: They are 12x12 at the base and tapered to 8x8 at the top. We’re calling them out as rough sawn cedar.
Date Posted: 12-May-16

Question: What is the sq. footage of the basement shown?
Answer: 988 SF
Date Posted: 12-May-16

Question: I have several questions regarding this plan. I am looking at this plan for an area that requires a min s.f., I see it is currently a 2x4 stud wall and can be increased to 2x6 for a cost, is the given s.f. to the outside face (builder charges to that face) and will that increase or decrease the s.f.? Also, the area I'm considering requires a 3 car garage, could a 3rd bay be added toward the front of the house and not comprimise it's appearance? And last, approx. how many extra s.f. would be added to push the master bath into the garage, in the corner of the garage behind bedroom wall, so the water closet can be enclosed and a large shower installed rather than the tub? I must keep the s.f. under 1550 s.f. if possible Thank you, Dave
Answer: Yes, the heated area is calculated to the outside face of stud which is the same area for 2x4 or 2x6. A third bay could be added in front of the garage that would project about 11’ or 12’ forward, almost inline with the front porch. Adding a toilet closet and doubling the size of the existing tub into a shower would add approx. 30-50 SF. Easily under 1550.
Date Posted: 22-Oct-15

Question: what is the height of the finished floor above grade?
Answer: That will depend on your site. I would recommend a minimum of 8” above grade on the high side.
Date Posted: 09-Oct-15

Question: What material is used in the siding?
Answer: Stone and stucco.
Date Posted: 31-Aug-15

Question: With foundation on slab I'm not sure how it would look without stairs. I don't see this version shown. If we order this plan with attached garage and on slab will the plan drawings reflect this option. Thanks!
Answer: If you are referring to the steps to the porch, they will be a function of how how the slab sits above grade and can be manipulated to raise it up if you prefer. The attached garage version does include a slab option as part of it.
Date Posted: 25-Aug-15

Question: My Wife and I are very interested in the floor plan with the attached garage! We would be ordering the walkout basement foundation BUT we want the basement unfinished. What would the total living area square footage be with the garage and unfinished basement?
Answer: We show 1421 SF of First Floor heated area. The basement area could be as high as another 1421 SF +/- depending on how much of it you wish to use. The garage is 600 SF. If you’re calculating covered area, don’t forget 248 SF of Front Porch and 314 SF of main level Lanai.
Date Posted: 24-Aug-15

Question: If we don't go with the upstairs are the ceilings vaulted or is it attic?
Answer: We show it to remain attic, however you could easily modify this with your builder/carpenter in the field.
Date Posted: 24-Aug-15

Question: Do you have any interior pictures of this plan?
Answer: No we do not.
Date Posted: 20-Apr-15

Question: do you have a house with same floor plan but not as craftsman?
Answer: Unfortunately, no.
Date Posted: 10-Feb-15

Question: is the bonus area 504 sq ft and the porch of 562 sq ft included in the 1421 total living area sq ft?
Answer: No, neither.
Date Posted: 28-Jan-15

Question: How tall/deep is the crawlspace (crawlspace version) and which side of the house does the attached garage version attach to?
Answer: There is no attached garage version yet. If there were it would attach on the right. The crawlspace height depends on your lot. I would seek to have at least a foot clear from the top of grade to the top of the foundation wall. That typically means about 2’ from grade to finish floor – minimum. David
Date Posted: 26-Jan-15

Question: Looking at the front elevation picture, a max ridge height of 25'9" seems high? Is that because it includes a slightly above-grade basement/crawl? From the picture I would guess a max-ridge height of maybe 22'?
Answer: It is 25’-8 1/4” from the finish floor to the top of the main ridge.
Date Posted: 22-Jan-15

Question: i am about to buy the plans for this house from you i am doing a preliminary construction cost analysis ,what is the roof material and what kind of wood are the decorative trusses made of ?
Answer: Our rendering shows shakes for the roof. I’d recommend a 300# comp shingle though with a thicker edge(timberline). The trusses would ideally be cedar.
Date Posted: 13-Nov-14

Question: Do you have photo of this plan with garage attached?
Answer: Unfortunately, no.
Date Posted: 03-Nov-14

Question: What is the sq. ft for home with garage.
Answer: The garage is not part of the heated area. The garage is 24’x24’ or 576 sf. The heated area of the home is 1421 sf.
Date Posted: 16-Oct-14

Question: Beautiful plan! Does the garage plan include the 2nd floor as depicted in photos? Is it a loft like area on the interior? Lastly, do you know if anyone has connected the garage to the house plan?
Answer: The space above the garage is just attic but could be a loft if it had stairs. We will have an attached two car side loaded version in about 2 weeks.
Date Posted: 14-Jul-14

Question: Customer wants to know if structural plan, all four elevations, sections, and window schedules are included with the package sets?
Answer: We include a foundation plan(slab, crawl or basement), framing plans-stick framed(floor, ceiling and roof) indicating size and placement of joists, rafters and beams, one building section, all four elevations at 1/4” scale. Door and window sizes are labeled on the floor plan at each location on the plan rather than in a door/window schedule for clarity. Flipping back and forth from a schedule just causes mistakes.
Date Posted: 01-Jul-14

Question: What happens to the first floor Lanai when you have a walk out basement?
Answer: It becomes a raised deck with a lower level porch as well.
Date Posted: 28-Apr-14

Question: Has this house plan been built anywhere in Michigan?
Answer: We do not maintain that kind of info.
Date Posted: 21-Apr-14

Question: I see the total living area listed as 1421. I'm assuming that it doesn't include the lower level of the walkout. What is the square footage of the lower level?
Answer: The lower level is 988 SF finished.
Date Posted: 07-Apr-14

Question: Is the roof load at psf sufficient for Collingwood Ontario Canada. I'm considering building this home in the near future. Thanks Barry Hawton
Answer: The rafter sizes would need to be enlarged as well as the spacing decreased. This would take care of any increased loads. Local framers would need what the standard size and spacing required would be.
Date Posted: 24-Feb-14

Question: Is the second floor plan for an upstairs and if so would the stairs go up where the plan shows going down into the basement?
Answer: The stair up to the bonus area is on the back of the fireplace and goes in the opposite direction as the stair to the basement.
Date Posted: 11-Feb-14

Question: can you email me pictures of the interior?
Answer: None available at this time.
Date Posted: 03-Feb-14

Question: what square footage is the garage? What we would want to do is have an efficiency space in upper area of garage. Let me know total square footage please.
Answer: 600 SF.
Date Posted: 28-Aug-13

Question: Do you have photos or graphic designs of the interior of the home? Please post them if possible. We love this home.
Answer: Not yet.
Date Posted: 08-Jul-13

Question: do you have photos with basement?
Answer: Unfortunately no..
Date Posted: 26-Apr-12

Question: If we purchase this plan with the crawlspace foundation, where is the water heater and furnace placed?
Answer: The attic is where we locate mechanical equipment. A fiberglass pan with a drain under the water heater makes it safe.
Date Posted: 28-Nov-11

Question: Hello, we were wondering how the basement works with this cottage type house? We noticed on both the main floor plan and the basement floor plan that there were walk-outs to the Lanai from the bedrooms as well as living/games areas. How is this possible? Does the owner have to choose which floor they want the walkouts from? Or is this a mistake and the basement has windows? It is difficult to understand. Thank you very much for your help. Blake and Jessica
Answer: It's a new rendering...that could explain why it looks different. Regards
Date Posted: 07-Nov-11

Question: Question regarding the garage- Will the set of house plans include the blueprints for the garage too? Love the detached garage and am very interested
Answer: Yes!

Do you know a site where I can have these made exactly like the drawings? I am really excited to start building and am trying to make it exactly like the pics. thank you, Brandon Walls
    Answer: The trusses are a custom item.

    Question: So if I choose a slab or crawlspace, both sets of stairs would stay? One with door and the other set by fireplace? Or will the steps by fireplace be excluded? Lisa
    Answer: he steps going down from the foyer would go away and become a closet.
    Date Posted: 09-Jan-18

    Question: Do the plans include details of the custom decorative arches? Do you have plans with open beam ceiling in the family room, great room, kitchen areas? Of course that would eliminate the upstairs bonus rooms....
    Answer: Our plans include details of the exterior arches. We show the bonus option as standard in our plan with no interior trusses.
    Date Posted: 08-Jan-18

    Question: If you don’t build the basement, do those stairs leading to the basement go away in your plan? Does fireplace shift to bedroom wall if basement stairs are gone? Just leaving back stairs on the other side of fireplace to bonus room?

    Date Posted: 08-Jan-18

    Answer: You would need a minimum of 8” clearance below the bottom of the basement wall for drainage. That would mean about 1’-8” from finish grade to finish floor on the high side.

    Question: How can 46ft 11 in x 53 ft be 1421 sq ft living area?? Please explain...Need sq ft per room label please. Thanks
    Answer: Those are the outside dimensions. Its not a rectangle shape either, there’s lots of ins and outs. The heated area is calculated from the outside face of the exterior walls, following the perimeter. We do not have room by room SF’s. You can get a rough idea though by using the numbers labeled on our floor plans.

    Question: I love this plan and I am excited that it is available with a walkout basement. However, our property slopes with the high side at the back of the house and the low side at the front of the house. Is is possible to have the walkout basement be at the front of the house?
    Answer: I guess it possible but not very practical for this particular design. A two story design with living areas on the lower level might make more sense.

    Question: PLan 65870, this plan has exterior gable moldings. Is there a company I can buy them from if we purchase these prints?
    Answer: We call those out to be cut from cedar but there is a company called ‘Fypon’ who can make those in molded millwork.

    Question: We really like the detached garage set up. We are wondering if the upstairs has a space that could be lived in small apt. We have built a $350 sq ft pump house which would match the design of this plan perfectly. We intend to build the garage first live in it while building the house. Are the ceilings currently high enough to stand up in. Can the garagre be redesgned a bit to have a small kitchen bedrom and bath. would be comforatbel in 500 to 650 sq ft We had thought maybe a 21/2 to three car garage. What would redesigning the garage plan run? to accomicate a small apt
    Answer: The attic over the garage allows about a 12’x22’ space that has 5’ tall side walls. With a 12:12 pitch that’s pretty easy for the average person to stand up in. The only thing you have to work out is a stair.

    Question: Would the addition of the walk out basement and attached garage need to be on a sloping lot so that the garage and main level line up? That is the only way I can understand it working. Am I correct? Thanks so much. Excited to get this plan rolling
    Answer: Yes. The lot would be best if it slopes away perpendicular to the back of the house.
    Date Posted: 12-Jan-17

    Question: With the addition of the walk out basement, would there be a way to attach the garage to line up with the main floor and enter the mud room? Thanks much
    Answer: Yes, that option is already available. See Elevation B.

    Question: Would there be any reason you couldn't put a metal roof on this house ? I will need to be aprox 4' above grade can your drawings accommodate that ? Rusty
    Answer: Metal roof would work fine on this house. Our drawings show a 2’ above finished grade finish floor. If you need a 4’ high finished grade, there would have to be a modification to the drawing for a fee, but its an easy change.

    Question: Do you have any interior pictures of this plan of a real build? Is it a possibility to relocate the kitchen to where the spare bedrooms are located giving extra room for master and relocating stairs where kitchen is?
    Answer: Those are some pretty extensive modifications, but it could be done.

    Question: I have several questions regarding this plan. I am looking at this plan for an area that requires a min s.f., I see it is currently a 2x4 stud wall and can be increased to 2x6 for a cost, is the given s.f. to the outside face (builder charges to that face) and will that increase or decrease the s.f.? Also, the area I'm considering requires a 3 car garage, could a 3rd bay be added toward the front of the house and not comprimise it's appearance? And last, approx. how many extra s.f. would be added to push the master bath into the garage, in the corner of the garage behind bedroom wall, so the water closet can be enclosed and a large shower installed rather than the tub? I must keep the s.f. under 1550 s.f. if possible Thank you, Dave
    Answer: Yes, the heated area is calculated to the outside face of stud which is the same area for 2x4 or 2x6. A third bay could be added in front of the garage that would project about 11’ or 12’ forward, almost inline with the front porch. Adding a toilet closet and doubling the size of the existing tub into a shower would add approx. 30-50 SF. Easily under 1550.

    Question: what is the height of the finished floor above grade?
    Answer: That will depend on your site. I would recommend a minimum of 8” above grade on the high side.

    Question: What material is used in the siding?
    Answer: Stone and stucco.

    Question: With foundation on slab I'm not sure how it would look without stairs. I don't see this version shown. If we order this plan with attached garage and on slab will the plan drawings reflect this option. Thanks!
    Answer: If you are referring to the steps to the porch, they will be a function of how how the slab sits above grade and can be manipulated to raise it up if you prefer. The attached garage version does include a slab option as part of it.
    Date Posted: 25-Aug-15

    Question: My Wife and I are very interested in the floor plan with the attached garage! We would be ordering the walkout basement foundation BUT we want the basement unfinished. What would the total living area square footage be with the garage and unfinished basement?
    Answer: We show 1421 SF of First Floor heated area. The basement area could be as high as another 1421 SF +/- depending on how much of it you wish to use. The garage is 600 SF. If you’re calculating covered area, don’t forget 248 SF of Front Porch and 314 SF of main level Lanai.
    Date Posted: 24-Aug-15

    Question: If we don't go with the upstairs are the ceilings vaulted or is it attic?
    Answer: We show it to remain attic, however you could easily modify this with your builder/carpenter in the field.

    Question: is the bonus area 504 sq ft and the porch of 562 sq ft included in the 1421 total living area sq ft?
    Answer: No, neither.
    Date Posted: 28-Jan-15

    Question: How tall/deep is the crawlspace (crawlspace version) and which side of the house does the attached garage version attach to?
    Answer: There is no attached garage version yet. If there were it would attach on the right. The crawlspace height depends on your lot. I would seek to have at least a foot clear from the top of grade to the top of the foundation wall. That typically means about 2’ from grade to finish floor – minimum. David
    Date Posted: 26-Jan-15

    Question: Looking at the front elevation picture, a max ridge height of 25'9" seems high? Is that because it includes a slightly above-grade basement/crawl? From the picture I would guess a max-ridge height of maybe 22'?
    Answer: It is 25’-8 1/4” from the finish floor to the top of the main ridge.
    Date Posted: 22-Jan-15

    Question: i am about to buy the plans for this house from you i am doing a preliminary construction cost analysis ,what is the roof material and what kind of wood are the decorative trusses made of ?
    Answer: Our rendering shows shakes for the roof. I’d recommend a 300# comp shingle though with a thicker edge(timberline). The trusses would ideally be cedar.

    Question: Do you have photo of this plan with garage attached?
    Answer: Unfortunately, no.
    Date Posted: 03-Nov-14

    Date Posted: 16-Oct-14

    Question: Beautiful plan! Does the garage plan include the 2nd floor as depicted in photos? Is it a loft like area on the interior? Lastly, do you know if anyone has connected the garage to the house plan?
    Answer: The space above the garage is just attic but could be a loft if it had stairs. We will have an attached two car side loaded version in about 2 weeks.
    Date Posted: 14-Jul-14

    Question: Customer wants to know if structural plan, all four elevations, sections, and window schedules are included with the package sets?
    Answer: We include a foundation plan(slab, crawl or basement), framing plans-stick framed(floor, ceiling and roof) indicating size and placement of joists, rafters and beams, one building section, all four elevations at 1/4” scale. Door and window sizes are labeled on the floor plan at each location on the plan rather than in a door/window schedule for clarity. Flipping back and forth from a schedule just causes mistakes.

    Question: What happens to the first floor Lanai when you have a walk out basement?
    Answer: It becomes a raised deck with a lower level porch as well.

    Question: Is the roof load at psf sufficient for Collingwood Ontario Canada. I'm considering building this home in the near future. Thanks Barry Hawton
    Answer: The rafter sizes would need to be enlarged as well as the spacing decreased. This would take care of any increased loads. Local framers would need what the standard size and spacing required would be.
    Date Posted: 24-Feb-14

    Question: Is the second floor plan for an upstairs and if so would the stairs go up where the plan shows going down into the basement?
    Answer: The stair up to the bonus area is on the back of the fireplace and goes in the opposite direction as the stair to the basement.
    Date Posted: 11-Feb-14

    Question: If we purchase this plan with the crawlspace foundation, where is the water heater and furnace placed?
    Answer: The attic is where we locate mechanical equipment. A fiberglass pan with a drain under the water heater makes it safe.

    Question: Hello, we were wondering how the basement works with this cottage type house? We noticed on both the main floor plan and the basement floor plan that there were walk-outs to the Lanai from the bedrooms as well as living/games areas. How is this possible? Does the owner have to choose which floor they want the walkouts from? Or is this a mistake and the basement has windows? It is difficult to understand. Thank you very much for your help. Blake and Jessica
    Answer: It's a new rendering...that could explain why it looks different. Regards

    What Do These Plans Include?

    Our working drawings include the following..
    We use AutoCAD to produce our working drawings. This allows us to be 100% accurate on our dimensions as well as coordinate all drawings with the highest level of precision. Below are examples of what comes in each working drawing set...

    Floor Plans - For each level we include... a 1/4"=1'-0" scale floor plan indicating frame walls and masonry with dimensions, notes, door and window sizes, room names and floor finishes, cabinet, shelving, fixture locations and notes, ceiling conditions, electrical/lighting fixtures and switches.

    Exterior Elevations - We include... Front Elevation at 1/4"=1'-0", side and rear elevations at 1/8"=1'-0", plate heights, roof overhangs, material/surface notes, window heights, roof pitches, material hatching for clarity, floor to floor dimensions and any other detail we feel is necessary to explain the construction.

    Cabinets/Building Sections- Cabinet elevations at 3/8"=1'-0", showing cabinets, appliance locations, plumbing fixtures, shelving, counter/backsplash surface, cabinet material and finish, niche details and any other special situation that cannot be understood from the plan view. Building Sections are included only when there is no other way to indicate the spatial characteristics of the home. This information is quite often indicated well enough on the elevations and plans.

    Foundation Plans - We offer a choice of three types of foundations, full basement, crawlspace, and slab foundations. Each comes fully dimensioned, and noted indicating wall composition and thickness, construction detail references to our detail page, beam, pier and column locations and sizes, stair locations for basements, reinforcing steel sizes and step downs in monolithic slabs and ventilation grilles for crawlspaces.
