Previous Questions and Answers
Q:Looks like a good start but does the plan comes with: - window rough opening’s or at least the size of them - Structural cross-section for the type of beams/headers needed - most of all engineering which is close to 80 or 90 pounds per square foot in Francestown, NH -The engineer and stamp should be on the plan, not a copied plan with a stamp. The original must be on there so it can be accepted by the town. - Is the foundation of full height foundation? - ask the company if they can customize it if not we may be able to get a letter from an engineer to customize the foundation for a hillside
A:This plan contains the window openings in the floorplans. These plans do not come with an engineer stamp. That would have to be obtained by a local engineer.

Q:Where is the utility room located for HVAC, water heater, washer and dryer?
A:The suggested location for the water heater is underneath the stairs leading up to the loft.
There isn't a suggested space for the HVAC system, however, there is some space up in the loft that is labeled as storage that may suit as the location for the HVAC (otherwise, a concrete pad located outside could work as well). Many times, the HVAC contractor will decide where the optimum placement for the main HVAC unit is located as part of their design.
The suggested place for the W/D would be in the alcove right next to the bathroom on the left (the bedroom door is directly to the right as you enter the bathroom).

Q:Would like to see the view of the back side of the house
A:I checked and we have not received any additional images or photos of this house plan. We do our best to publish them as soon as they are received, unfortunately people either forget about us or just get too busy after they build, as we do not get a lot of photos back from our customers.
Since we rely on our customers to send us pictures of our as-built house plans, if customers don't send photos, we don't have any others than what you see on our website.
