Q:Hello, Few questions: Does the kitchen and living areas have cathedral ceiling? Where does the furnace/hot water heater go in this plan if foundation type is crawl space or slab ?Thank you!
A:Thanks for the questions.
The plan has flat clgs however it wouldn't take much to add cathedral clg to the area.
The AC & WH are located in the attic accessible by pull down stairs on the porch.
A slab foundation comes standard with the plan. An optional crawlspace fdn can be done for an added fee which is shown in the website,
Hope this helps. Thanks again.

Q:In going over the plans we have several questions in case there are additional changes that need to be made before we order our plans. 1. How wide are the exterior entry/exit door ways & how wide are the interior door ways. 2. On the plan we are looking at it shows an outdoor fire place but in the photos there is no fireplace & it doesn't show where a chimney comes out in the roof line. Is this shown in the actual blueprints? 3. What information is provided for the slab, i.e. is it marked on the plan where the plumbing is placed? 4. Do we need to let you know where the main electrical will be coming into the home so that can be drawn in?
A:Thank you for the questions.
The front door is 36” The bedroom doors are 32”. Bathroom and closet doors are 28”.
The outdoor fireplace is optional. The plan states “42” fireplace, owner to choose type/fuel.” If you would decide to have a wood burning fp, the vented chimney would be added.
No plumbing locations are on the foundation plan. Your contractor uses the floor plan to determine these locations.
No, I do not need to know where electrical will entering the house. Your electrician will determine that.
Again thank you for the questions.
