About this plan

Keywords:
Young gardeners will thrive in this backyard, which is specially designed to entice a child into horticulture with a circular vegetable garden and a barn-and-silo playhouse or toolshed. Young gardeners will thrive in this backyard, which is specially designed to entice a child into horticulture with a circular vegetable garden and a barn-and-silo playhouse or toolshed. The stepping-stones in the garden make a perfect spot for hopscotch, and the swing set, sandbox and lawn provide other places to romp. Vegetables grow just as well in beds as in rows, and the circular bed used here better suits a child's sense of necessary disorder. Surrounded by a gravel path and crisscrossed by pathways, the garden presents four individual easy-care beds that can be planted with several types of vegetables. Begin with your child's favorites in order to create enthusiasm for gardening. Then add a few new ones to encourage investigation. Eating a vine-ripened tomato grown personally by the child may be enough to convert a typical play-obsessed ten-year-old into a lifelong gardener. Parents will like this backyard design, too. It combines a permanent structure of easy-care trees, shrubs and perennials, which produce a beautiful color display spring through fall, and a handsome brick patio for relaxing and entertaining. The circular shape of the vegetable bed, which can be turned into a pretty herb or flower bed if the kids lose interest, echoes the curves of the lawn, making it an attractive, yet functional, design element. For safety's sake, the entire backyard is open and visible from the patio and has only one gate. A child can skip right along the stepping stones to tend a personal vegetable garden in this cleverly designed backyard. With a barn-and-silo playhouse and compost bin adjacent to the garden, your child can exercise imagination in creative play while helping with the chores and learning about recycling. @season:Shown in Summer Michael J.

What's in the Plan?

 

 

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.
