Q:Is it possible to get a copy of the plans with actual dimensions without having to buy a full set? I don’t need the full set just mostly the floor plans – I may want to modify a bit.
Also these plans only have stick built roof can they come with truss designs? What is the cost?
What is the roof pitch?
What is exterior wall systems 4” or 6”
A:Hey Chris, we do not offer a study set. We can do modifications if you like or discuss any changes you want to make to the plans. We offer our plans with a truss roof or stick built roof. Our exterior walls are 4”.

Q:lovely design. I would possibly switch the position of the kitchen and living room areas depending on whether the house was south or north facing (to get south sum/light into the LR). Any problems with that? (such as plumbing repositioning, etc?) Last question: the "stepped" roof looks nice but any problems constructing it, and maybe more susceptible to leaking/weathering? Comments gratefully accepted. Many thanks. Frank East Essex, NY
A:Thanks for your interest in our plan. If you switch the kitchen and living room it will cause some adjustments to be made, plumbing, location of the kitchen sink, front door location and windows may change. It is a do able project change though. The roof should not be a problem if it is done correctly with flashing at the step downs.
