A plan “set” is the collection of all of the various individual pages that describe the house. Plan sets usually include: a site plan, building notes, floor plans for each level of the house, framing and roofing plans, electrical plans, plans for the mechanical systems, and construction details. A “Floor Plan” refers to the map of an individual floor. The simplest way to understand a floor plan is to imagine looking down on a doll house without its roof. “Design drawings” are floor plans that include a modest amount of information and are created to communicate a home design to non-professionals. “Working drawings” or “construction drawings” contain much more information: they are used to build the home. For the most part, this article refers to design drawings.
This home has a gracious, open plan with a large, two story living area that opens up completely to the outside with a massive folding door to the covered porch and screened porch. It is perfect for entertaining and with large expanses of glass in the bedroom and living room areas, it would work well on a lake, ocean or view lot. The plan features a main level master suite, large dining room and a loft office/guest suite with its own bathroom.
This tall and narrow variation on a modern farmhouse/cottage is perfect for a lakeshore or view lot. All of the rooms and windows are oriented to the view side and the home opens up on that side to a large, on-grade masonry patio through a number of paired french doors. The one-ro0om-wide design allows views in both directions and flow through ventilation that can minimize the need for air conditioning. The iconographic shape fits with almost any context, while the modern details and interior spaces keep the interior open, light and airy. The house comes with plans for a detached unheated studio/boathouse/bunkhouse that completes your vacation compound .
Floor plans used to be called “blueprints.” They came in a roll and included all of the details required to build (or change) a home. Today, they still contain “building instructions” in the form of multiple pages of drawings, but most house plan are delivered as digital files and can be viewed on a screen or printed out onto regular paper for review, to get bids, or to submit for permits.
