Plan Description

** Discontinued 040115 - same as plan 014H-0012 Shuttered windows, front facing gables, and a mixed-material façade give this traditional empty-nester house plan plenty of style! Inside, you’ll find a floor plan well suited for retirees and grandparents who enjoy when the kids and grandkids come home for the weekend. The main floor is well suited for retired life and those with an eye on their golden years. The vaulted foyer points the way to the barrier-free gathering spaces. Here the kitchen teams up with the sunlit hearth room and the generously sized great room creating a relaxing space that is suitable for everyday happenings and entertaining. Special features include loads of counter space in the kitchen, a handy snack bar, sparkling windows, skylights and a fireplace surrounded with built-ins. The dining room neatly connects with the kitchen making meal service a snap for holiday dinners. On the left side of the home, the peaceful study is tucked behind the 2-car, side-entry garage. With nearby access to a full bath, this space easily converts into a guest bedroom when overnight visitors arrive. The laundry room is situated close by for convenience. Now take a look at your master bedroom. It steals the show with its vaulted ceiling, bayed sitting area, walk-in closet and deluxe bath! With everything you could need on one floor, it is easy to see why this one-story home is a top choice for retirees. But wait! There’s still more! A finished walkout basement provides a recreation room and home theater, both entertainment spaces that will be well used by friends and family, weekend visitors, and the like. Another bedroom and full bath work well for the grandkids or additional guests. Don’t miss the storage area and workshop with outdoor access! Designed with everything you’ll love and nothing you won’t want, this ranch house plan was thoughtfully plans for those whose children have left the nest!

Roof system is a combination of truss and conventional framing.

House Plan Sets:

1 Set / Study Set
A full set of copyrighted house plans typically used for review purposes and obtaining bids and estimates. Often these blueprints are stamped "Not for Construction," and due to copyright laws, cannot be reproduced.
5 Sets
The basic house plan package needed for construction of your new home.
8 Sets
The recommended house plan package for construction of your new home. There are usually enough sets of blueprints to distribute them to the lender, building department, various contractors and yourself.
Reproducible Master
House plan package for making minor changes to the blueprint. Consists of one copy of the construction drawing and a copyright release granting legal permission to change the designer's original copyrighted house plan and reproduce it for construction. Blueprints are typically printed on erasable vellum or bond paper. Note: Reproducible masters printed on bond paper will require the use of White Out. Note: Some of our designers require customers to sign and return a licensing agreement before the plans are shipped.
PDF File (Best Value)
Electronic file of the construction drawing delivered by email to the customer usually within 24-48 hours of purchasing (during regular business hours.) Includes a copyright release to print the blueprints needed for construction. Copies can be printed on 8 1/2" x 11" sheets right from your computer or take the file to a blueprint shop and print full sized house plans for construction. Saves time and shipping costs. Note: Some of our designers require customers to sign and return a licensing agreement before the plans are emailed.

Other Options:

Additional Sets

Right Reading Reverse
One-time surcharge. All sets of house plans in your blueprint package will come in full reverse essentially flipping the floor plan from left to right with all text, symbols and notes readable, rather than mirrored.
