Previous Q & A
Previous Questions and Answers
Q:Do these plans come with mechanical pages for plumbing and HVAC? If I select the basement option will the plan reflect the furnace and water heater in the basement? If not can that be requested?
A:Our house plans do not include mechanical or plumbing drawings for the simple fact that they are sold as a "stock" house plan and are sold all across the nation. Since plumbing and hvac systems are totally reliant on the conditions present at the construction site, these items cannot be included in a stock house plan since that site information is not known. These drawings must be obtained by a local engineer or mechanical contractor.

Q:how many windows and what are the sizes, are in this house?
A:The windows are shown on the presentation floor plan image, but the sizes are different depending on the location. The plans that you purchase will have the window sizes of each individual window listed so that your window supplier can order the correct size.
Date Posted: 01-Sep-20
Q:How wide is the mantle area? For entertainment purposes how wide of a tv would it support?
A:The fireplace area is shown on the plans as 5'-4" wide, so it can support a tv the same size if mounted on the wall. If sitting on a mantle, it will depend on the gas log unit that you select and mantle design.
Date Posted: 18-Aug-20
Q:Do you know the dimensions of the wood beams on the front porch?
A:14" timber and 6" for gable end timbers
Date Posted: 13-Aug-20
Q:How tall are the garage doors on this plan? Is, 9-10 feet an option? Can the garage doors be changed to open on same side as front of the home?
A:Due to the way the design is framed, only 8' tall doors like the one shown can be accommodated in the garage. To change the plan to front entry versus side entry, click the "Modifications" link to inquire about a price and timeframe to make the change.
Date Posted: 05-Aug-20
Q:My wife and I are considering building this plan on a slab or on a basement. Cost of the build will ultimately be the final decision maker. If we were to purchase the plan with a basement option would we have to re-purchase the entire plan if we decide to build on a slab? We are hoping to use the drawings/material list to get estimates from our subcontractors.
A:You would not be required to re-purchase the plan as long as the timeframe elapsed is reasonable. There might be a re-fulfillment fee that would be assessed, but you can call for additional details should the need arise for you to swap foundations.
Date Posted: 03-Aug-20
Q:How is the sq footage on this house calculated? Is it just a total of each room or was it done based on the outside perimeter of the house? Based on what I'm being told in KY the calculation is a combination of the outside perimeter with room sizes and other variables. Thanks!,
A:Square footage should always be based on the exterior perimeter. The footage on this plan is calculated to the exterior of the studwall. Masonry is not included
Date Posted: 30-Jul-20
Q:What is the pitch of the roof backside and sides and the two gables on plan51981.
My builder is very concerned he thinks they are to steep.
A:The highest pitch on the plan is 12:12. The working drawings will show and label the pitch of each roof plane on the elevations as well as the roof plan.
Date Posted: 20-Jul-20
Q:For the $195 vaulted ceiling option, is it vaulted from the fireplace through the kitchen or another way. We want to know if the kitchen is vaulted. Do you have any images to show what it looks like? If I choose the 2x6 walls, does that take space from the inside or expand the walls outward? When you say 2x6, is it exterior only?
A:The vaulted ceiling is only for the great room and runs left to right with the fireplace at the peak. It is only a 5:12 vault due to the roof framing clearance. Sorry, there is no picture. If the 2x6 wall option is chosen the additional two inches goes to the interior of the plan. Going to the exterior would change every dimension on the exterior of the house resulting in a much higher fee. Exterior walls and perimeter of heated space are included in 2x6 wall option.
Date Posted: 15-Jul-20
Q:how tall are the upper cabinets and how far down is the top of the cabinets from the ceiling
A:The cabinets depicted in the photographs were selected by the owner, so we do not have exact dimensions. The photos show them going all the way to the ceiling which is 10'. Typically the bottom of cabinets is somewhere around 4'-6" above the floor, so that would make the upper cabinets approximately 5'-6" tall.
Date Posted: 12-Jun-20
Q:What are the heights on the windows? I know they are mostly 32 wide.
A:Dining, Bedroom 4, and Great Room windows are 7'. All other full sized windows are 6'. Window sizes for each opening will be listed on the floor plan next to each window.
Date Posted: 09-Jun-20
Q:What is the height of the garage?
A:The ceiling height of the garage is 9'.
Date Posted: 28-May-20
Q:Will you send the basement floor plan with the three car garage option and the bonus room? Do you have the elevation showing the 3 car garage and the floor plan showing the 3 car garage?
A:Unfortunately, we do not have presentation images for every possible combination of options. The basement stairs in the three car option will be in exactly the same place as they are shown in the regular version and the bonus room will extend the same length as the longer garage. As for the elevations, they will look the same, but with an extra garage bay added to the front.
Date Posted: 26-May-20
Q:Is it possible to view an option with sane look/layout but 2200 or less sq feet, even if that means losing the 4th bedroom?
A:We do not have this exact layout in a smaller footage, but plans 56903 and 56911 are similar in a smaller footage.
Date Posted: 20-May-20
Q:Where are the structural plans for this home? It wasn’t included in the plans.
A:The plans are not engineered for a specific location. Therefore structural drawings are not included due to the varying requirements from one location to another. If structural drawings are required for your permit, they must be obtained by a local engineer familiar with the loading specifications of your site location.
Date Posted: 27-Apr-20
Q:Can there be a overlook/balcony in the bonus room. Looking over the kitchen/living room?

Date Posted: 27-Apr-20
Q:can you tell me how wide the windows are on this plan?
A:All windows are 32" wide with the exception of the bathrooms and pantry which are 24" wide.
Date Posted: 22-Apr-20
Q:If I buy the CAD plan it comes with the PDF file. That would allow me to make changes and print reversed plans correct? Also this would give me an unlimited amount of licenses to build as many houses as I want?
A:That is correct...keep in mind that the CAD files will be submitted in .dwg file format which means that you will need AutoCAD software in order to make changes to the plan.
Date Posted: 10-Mar-20
Q:Can you tell me how the dryer is venting to the outside of the house?
A:Either under the floor or through the roof. This is to be determined on site.
Date Posted: 12-Feb-20
Q:What Is the attic height in the rest of the attic not including the bonus room. Is there enough height to have more bonus space other than what’s designed?
The only other attic space accessible from the bonus room would be over the master suite. There is not adequate headroom to get to the other areas of the house due to the roof line.
Date Posted: 20-Jan-20
Q:Would it be possible to vault the great room in this plan?
A:Only a low sloped vault is possible due to the roof line above. This would increase the height of the great room by 2-3 ft.
Date Posted: 13-Nov-19
Q:I will need an 11"x 17" drawing also. Can I swap one of the originals for this or will it come with one this size?
A:If you purchase the PDF plan, you can print the drawings on whatever paper size you desire. Drawings printed to scale will need to be on 24"x36" paper.
Date Posted: 01-Nov-19

Date Posted: 17-Sep-19
Q:Hello, I love this plan! I'm wondering if you have a similar or same plan without a garage? Thank you, Susan
A:We do not have a plan like this without a garage. Removing the garage will significantly alter the exterior of the home and it will no longer resemble the plan as it currently is. If you are interested in removing the garage, you can request a modification quote to do so by clicking the link at the top of the page labeled "Modifications".

Q:Hello. How many square feet is this plan with the loft?
A:If you are referring to the bonus room, it is not included in the heated square footage of 2373. It is listed at 336 s.f., so that would total 2709.
Date Posted: 26-Aug-19
Q:Can the living room and kitchen ceiling IN THIS PLAN BE VAULTED?
A:Yes...the vault will have to be low sloped due to the roof line above though.
Date Posted: 26-Aug-19
Q:Plan 51981 - would you have the same plan in a 2200 square foot home or smaller.
A:Plan 56915 (2210 sf) is a similar floor plan, however the exterior is quite a bit different. Perhaps you would be interested in plan 51991 (2281 sf) which is also a similar floor plan, or plan 56911 (2073 sf) which is a similar exterior.
Date Posted: 09-Jul-19
Q:Is there anyway to make the great room vaulted?
A:The great room could indeed be vaulted. Due to the roof pitches and configuration, the pitch of the vault could only be around a 5:12 vault.

Q:Can this house be build with a vaulted ceiling in great room. This home is gorgeous and well laid out. For building in North Carolina do you recommend brick or would there be a less expensive option for the exterior walls? Thank you and bravo for a wonderful plan. We've looked a hundreds and think this is it!!!
A:The ceiling could be vaulted, but would have to be a low-pitch vault since it would interfere with the roof structure. As for the exterior materials, the plan currently shows a painted brick exterior. Siding or any other painted exterior material could be used in its place as desired.
Date Posted: 11-Mar-19
Q:Can you not get a material list with these plans? i found this plan on another website and they have the material list.
