Previous Q & A
Previous Questions and Answers
Q:Is it possible to have a vaulted ceiling in the great room? And could the stairs to the bonus room be stairs to the basement instead. With no bonus over the garage?
A:Hello, Yes, the great room can be vaulted with the peak running left to right, or front to rear. If you want the peak centered on the fireplace, the max. height of the vault would be around 14', unless we add a small gabled roof on the rear to allow the vaulted ceiling to protrude beyond the rear roof plane. If the peak of the vault runs left to right, it could be up to 20' high, but probably 16' height would be plenty on a room this size.
The bonus room stairs could be used for the basement. We do offer a basement version, see plan 59206. You may like it better. The basement is the same size and shape as the heated and cooled portions of the main floor, so the basement version stairs go down along the edge of the basement, whereas the bonus room stairs location is going to go down in area under the laundry room. Either location would work. Bonus room can be eliminated. We assume the windows on the front gable of garage will remain as is, or be changed to a smaller decorative window.
The cost to modify plan 59198 as requested. including the addition of the basement, removal of bonus, etc. would be $545 in addition to the purchase of the plan package. Allow 4 to 6 working days for prelim. plans, and another 7 to 9 working days for final plans.

Q:We love this plan, with a few modifications. Would it be possible to do these plans with walk out basement?
A:See plan 59206 for the basement version of this plan. It comes as a non walkout basement, so that could be modified to make it a walkout type, with windows and doors along the rear however you like.
The cost to create the walkout basement, starting with this plan would be $250 in addition to the purchase of the plan package. Allow 3 to 5 working days for preliminary plans, and another 5 to 8 working days for final plans.
Your builder could likely make the walkout basement change onsite, if your permit office allows site changes.

Q:What will this plan be square footage wise if you take off the 4th bedroom? Also, if the closets aren’t walk in for the 2nd and 3rd bedroom
A:Hello, We do have a very similar plan with three beds, and 2067 s.f. heated. You may like to review plan 59149.
If we removed the fourth bed from plan 59198, the footage would be reduced approx. 208 s.f., so it would have around 2192 s.f. heated.

Q:Do you have this house at 1800 to 2000 square foot?
A:Hello, See plan 59149 (2067 s.f.) and plan 59943 (1800 s.f. )

Q:Someone asked a question about making this house plan a 3 1/2 car garage. Do you have a picture, or a similar plan, that would show what this looks like with the added garage space? Or could you please describe what it would like like in greater detail.
A:Hello, Everything behind the garage could be shifted to the rear about 8 feet, then another 6 to 8' added to the front of the garage so it doesnt stick out too far on the front. It would look exactly the same, except the front of the garage would protrude another 6' to 8', depending on exactly how much footage is added. We are assuming the extra 1.5 car garage bay would be added onto the front of the garage, with a side entry, like the original plan.

Q:We love this house. But it's too big for our budget. Is there a siniliar style that is around 1800 square foot and only one story? Or could this plan be modified to fit our size?
A:Hello, See plan 59149 for a 2067 s.f. version and plan 55601 for a 1902 s.f. version, and similar plans 59943 and 59148 for 1800 s.f. versions that have very similar exterior and floor plan. Any of these can be modified if needed, for an additional cost.

Q:Are these plans engineered for a climate like Utah? With higher snow load?
A:Negative. Any predrawn house plan can only be designed for one set of criteria, and this one happens to be drawn for a Southern climate, with 2x6 rafters @24" on center, and NO snow load. All you would need to do is to have the local truss company to create trusses to match for your local snow/wind loads. Predrawn house plans do NOT come with an architect or engineering stamp. Check with your local building permit office to find out what is required for a permit in your area.

Q:Can the kitchen and flex space be opened to the great room?
A:Sure. Thats an easy thing to change onsite. Just use a beam above those walls for support. There would be a column at the corner of flex space/kitchen, and an optional column at the foyer/great room corner.. Your choice on that one. Not necessary, but looks better with the column or small wall segment there.

Q:Is the back patio part of the slab and is it under roof?
