A:The garage is 24'x22', the house is 28'x40' to the front prow not incl. decks. The overall maximum footprint would be 28'x62' of the house only.

Q:Reference #99943 IS the Master BR upstairs have cathedral celing? It appears that it might given the peak of the roofline through the length of the house. How would you vent the stove in this plan given it is isolated by itself? I assume that the plans include an unfinished space. Does Family Home Plans have plans for finished basements or would it be up to us to have a builder design the plans for the basement? Rick and Delores
A:The Master Suite has an 8'-0" flat ceiling as indicated by the dotted lines and then slopes down to the outer walls. The stove is vented downwards using a Jenn-Air type cooktop/range unit. The full basement is unfinished other than the support walls, the builder could help you finish it according to your specifications.
