Q:My husband and i like this particular floor plan. Before we order it could i ask some questions about the kitchen countertop space? I'm interested in the sq footage. My brother works for a huge tile company and can get me granite for a very good price but I want to send him measurements so I can pick out the one I want. Thank you very much!
A:The kitchen countertop square footage is approximately 53 sq. ft. Please note we do not recommend ordering from this measurement. This is only an approximate. Accurate measurements should be taken during construction once the cabinets have been confirmed with the cabinet maker and accurate measurements have been confirmed on at the job site.

I had one more question about plan #40006, where is the hot water heater??
A:The ceiling in the greatroom is 9' with no vault.
