Q:Plan 82542 - Does this plan have an option for a walkout basement? If so, where is the exit door from the basement to the ground level outside? Are you able to provide a photograph showing the walkout basement exit door?
A:We do have the optional walkout basement available for this plan for an upgrade of $299.
When purchasing the optional basement, you will receive a basement foundation page with a note stating that window and door placement is to be determined by builder or owner. We do not call out where doors or windows are to be placed.
If you are needing a floorplan for basement area, this will have to be achieved through our modification process.
Otherwise, you will only receive the foundation page that is unfinished space that mirrors main level heated/cooled space!

A:Hello, I’m not sure I am clear on what is being asked here, but our optional walk-out basement is unfinished, so there is nothing to show for that. It would just be unfinished space that mirror the main level living space.

A:The whole house is based on a 9’ ceiling wall height except where noted. All bdrms, garage etc have 9’.
