About this plan

Keywords:
Take advantage of existing mature trees already gracing your yard to create a woodland garden filled with colorful native shrubs, perennial wildflowers and ferns. Because plants that grow naturally in a region require less work, this design is not only beautiful and ecological, it's practical, too! Take advantage of existing mature trees already gracing your yard to create a woodland garden filled with colorful native shrubs, perennial wildflowers and ferns. Because plants that grow naturally in a region require less work, this design is not only beautiful and ecological, it's practical, too! Many woodland wildflowers die to the ground in mid-summer after putting on a flowery spring show, so the designer carefully sites longer lasting and evergreen types near the patio and house to provide summer-long color, and uses the ephemerals (those that die to the ground in summer) where they won't be missed later in the year. The garden includes native flowering shrubs to provide structure, form, flowers and foliage through the changing seasons. In addition to permanent woody plants, sizable areas of paving contribute to the garden's strong structure and low maintenance. The flagstones in the walk and circular terrace are arranged informally, in keeping with the garden's casual style. The pool of gravel substitutes for lawn (turf struggles in such a shady site) and is underlain with landscape fabric to thwart weeds and reduce maintenance. The low stone wall flanked by boulders echoes the terrace's curve and visually separates the plantings behind it, making the yard seem more expansive. Flagstone pavers lead from the terrace to the gravel pool and past a charming roofed garden swing. Set at the yard's perimeter, the structure offers a relaxing spot for solitary contemplation or a tĂȘte-a-tĂȘte. Call Out: Wildflowers and native shrubs turn a shady, tree-filled site into an easy-care paradise. Because there is no lawn, weekly maintenance chores are practically non-existent. More Less...

What's in the Plan?

While the contents of each blueprint package vary slightly, each contains detailed, high-quality working
drawings that show you exactly how your project is to be built. Your plan package may include the following:

1. Detailed Floor Plans
Detailed floor plans show the layout of each floor of the house. Rooms and interior spaces are carefully dimensioned, doors and windows located, and keys are given for cross-section details provided elsewhere in the plans.

2. Exterior Elevations
In addition to the front exterior, your blueprint set may include drawings of the rear and sides of your house. 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.

3. Front Perspective
The artist's sketch of the exterior of the house gives you an idea of how the house will look when built and landscaped.

4. Foundation Plans
This sheet shows the foundation layout including concrete walls, footings, pads, posts, beams, bearing walls, and foundation notes. If the home features a basement, the first floor framing details may also be included on this plan. If your plan features slab construction rather than a basement, the plan shows footings and details for a monolithic slab. This page, or another in the set, may include a sample plot plan for locating your house on a building site. Additional sheets focus on foundation cross-sections and other details.

5. House and Detailed Cross-Sections
Large-scale views show sections or cutaways of the foundation, interior walls, exterior walls, floors, stairways, and roof details. Additional cross-sections may show important changes in floor, ceiling, or roof heights, or the relationship of one level to another. These sections show exactly how the various parts of the house fit together and are extremely valuable during construction. Additional sheets may include enlarged wall, floor, and roof construction details.

6. Floor Structural Supports
Floor framing details come with plans that have basement and/or crawlspace foundations. Each includes spacing, direction, span, and specifications for floor joists. Beam and window headers, along with necessary details for framing connections, stairways, or dormers are also included.
