About this plan

The Dexter is a single-level, ranch-style home designed for construction on a lot with a gentle down slope at the rear. It is equally well suited for construction in a suburban neighborhood, or as a vacation home with a view. The Dexter is a single-level, ranch-style home designed for construction on a lot with a gentle down slope at the rear. It is equally well suited for construction in a suburban neighborhood, or as a vacation home with a view. Entering, you step into a vaulted entry that opens out into a vaulted diningh room and living room. The ceiling slopes up from the entry, peaking over the dining area. Then it slopes down toward the rear, where wide sliders open onto a suspended, partially covered deck. Slender wooden posts support the roof, while wooden handrails rim the deck. Abundant natural light washes into the gathering spaces through windows that line the sidewalls. The corner kitchen sink is doubly blest, with windows on two sides offering a panoramic view. This will be appreciated by those washing up after meals, as well as any potted plants nestled into the sink-fron triangle. Counters and cabinetry wrap around three sides, offereing plenty of work and storage space. A dishwasher is built in next to the sink. Range and oven could be built in or freestanding. The Dexter's master suite has a roomy walk-in closet, and a private bathroom with double vanity and oversized shower.Right next to it is a utility room with cabinets over the laundry appliances, plus a long folding counter with shelves above. A second bedroom is also at the rear, and the room just inside the netry could be furnished as a third bedoom. But it could just as easily be a den, study, home office, hobby room, or whatever the owners need most. Three closets line the hallways. More Less...

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.
