Modern House Plan - 3 Bedrooms - Great Window Views – Contemporary Home Design at Family Home Plans
Which part of this home catches your eye first? Is it the beautiful front courtyard, planted with your favorite woodland natives? Or is it the seamless way that the stone and natural wood exterior elements blend with the forest surrounding your home? Either way, we think that you’ll agree: this home is designed to be your very own backcountry paradise. No matter where you are, inside or outdoors, you will be at one with nature.
Nowhere is this theme more true than in the open living and dining area. A wall of windows to the front of the room lets you gaze out over the courtyard, while doors to the outdoor living space gives you a way to escape into the woods any time you want. Once the autumn leaves start to fall, you can continue enjoying the wilderness from the warmth and comfort of your home — just light a fire in the living area fireplace and enjoy the natural display.
Even in the home office, a space that you would think would be devoted to technology, you will still be able to bask in the delights of your woodland setting. Windows overlooking your backyard let the dappled sunlight in. When you are ready to take your lunch break, sneak out through the office door to the patio and enjoy a light meal while you listen to the birds twittering in the trees around your home.
The amenities of this plan only serve to make your already blissful life even easier. For instance, the large kitchen pantry is only a few steps from the garage, which makes for a short trip between the car and a place to put those heavy bags of groceries. Just down the hall from the kitchen is a large laundry room, complete with counter space for sorting and folding clothes. And, in between the kitchen and garage is a compact mud room that gives you storage for coats and shoes as well as a great place to confine the mess that you and your family will track in from your woodland adventures.
At the other end of the home, in the master suite, you will spend endless hours resting and relaxing. The spa tub in the master bathroom will be your own private oasis, just like a hot spring that you would find at an exotic mountain resort. And, with a doorway to the master bedroom private patio, you can nip outside to watch the stars or go for a moonlit stroll without disturbing your sleeping family.

In addition to the front exterior, your drawing set will include drawings of the rear and sides of your house as well. These drawings give notes on exterior materials and finishes. Particular attention is given to cornice detail, brick and stone accents, or other finish items that make your home unique.
Note: Sections and Elevations depict the default foundation, regardless of optional foundation page choices
The foundation page dimensions, concrete walls, footings, pads, posts, beams, bearing walls, and any stepped foundation information along with any retaining wall info (schematic only). A typical wall section for the home is also usually included on this page (if not, it is elsewhere in your plan set, as space allows). If your plan features a poured concrete slab rather than a basement or crawlspace, the foundation page shows footings and details for the slab, and includes plumbing locations.
Exterior and interior wall framing, and windows/doors are dimensioned. Room sizes are indicated and any beams, posts and structural bearing points are called out. The floorplans include an electrical legend, and electrical fittings, lights and outlets are shown. Floor Plans will also indicate cross–section details (provided on the sections page) and show any special framing details applicable to the design. Cabinet elevations are included for kitchen and bathrooms; some designs feature cabinet elevations for design–related built–ins too.
Building sections show changes in floor, ceiling, or roof height, and the relationship of one level to another. Our section pages also show how the stairs are calculated (if there are some!) and depict roof and foundation members. We try and draw sections to show the most useful information — choosing locations where there are elements you or your contractor might need clarification on.
Note: Sections and Elevations depict the default foundation, regardless of optional foundation page choices
Roof framing or truss directions are shown, slope directions are indicated and structural members are sized and called out if applicable. The gravity loads used to calculate the rafters, beams and posts are indicated , and we also show gutters, downspouts, and any roof venting required for your home.
Notes and Details Page(s)
Your home comes detailed to meet the requirements of the latest adopted version of the ‘International Residential Code’, and our notes and details pages outline all the elements applicable to the design of your home. Compliance with further standards may need to be incorporated into your plan set, depending the requirements of your building department — these are usually done locally.
Beam Calcs Pack
These stock home plans come with all the gravity calcs used in the design of your home, upon request (Not all building departments require them; please ask if you would like them included). You can rest-assured you have purchased a quality plan package that will be easy to construct, and meet all the requirements of your local building department. We generally calculate loads based on 25# Snowload, but also have many plans for higher snowloads, or can even modify the structure of a plan to comply with your local conditions. Our plans do NOT come with seismic, wind or other site specific engineering calculations; we have engineers we work with to provide those to you at additional cost, or you are free to source your own engineer locally.
