Main Floor Plan

The Grayson

A tall arched portico enhances the elegant exterior and allows for a grand entrance in this spectacular single story home. The thirteen-foot tall foyer looks through to virtually every room, most of which face the rear of the home creating a panoramic view. A central gallery anchors the public space in this open spacious floor plan while decorative columns define the rooms. The dining room opens from the foyer maintaining privacy in the front of the home. A see-through fireplace divides the formal living room and family room enabling both rooms to take advantage of the rear view. The kitchen is a chef's dream equipped with a curved cook top island, a u-shaped countertop with ample cabinet space and a planning desk. Across the hall the nook features French doors to the rear patio- perfect for a cookout. Luxury abounds in the master suite. Tray ceiling, a spa tub and a huge walk-in closet are some of its amenities, not to mention a fantastic rear view. Two additional bedrooms are located across the home giving each wing its own privacy. A three-car garage and spacious utility room complete this home.

Architectural Styles Associated with this design

Contemporary

The Mascord Contemporary Collection boasts modern homes designed around light and space: open, airy and with an abundance of windows in various styles, these homes are generously appointed to bring ample light indoors. Unique rooflines and asymmetrical designs create rooms that feel as grand as they are innovative. With a focus on maximizing square footage and minimizing costs, these pioneering modern homes are as reasonable to build as they are pleasant to live in. 'Fifties Modern' homes with hip roofs and carefully placed windows and simple exteriors are also included in our contemporary collection. 

The term contemporary architecture is also applied to a range of styles of recently built structures and space which are optimized for current use. The concept of modernism is a central theme in the efforts of 20th century modern architecture. Gaining global popularity especially after the Second World War, architectural modernism was adopted by many architects and architectural educators, and continued as a dominant architectural style for institutional and corporate buildings into the 21st century.

Will This Design Work For Your Location?

All house plans licensed by Alan Mascord Design Associates Inc are designed and detailed to conform to The International Residential Code (for orders out of state), or Oregon and Washington local state codes (for orders in those states). We typically calculate and provide sizing of beams for a snowload of 25 psf. You may need beams sized to accommodate larger roof loads specific to your region. We are able to help with this; please speak with our sales staff to discuss your options.

To find out exactly what details you should expect with your Mascord house plans, see "What's included in a Plan Set?"

Some regions have additional engineering requirements, such as earthquake-prone areas of California and the Pacific Northwest, or the Gulf, Florida, & Carolina coasts that are frequented by hurricanes. Additional Wind and Seismic engineering drawings are required to accompany your home plans to obtain a building permit in most areas. These additional drawings need to be provided and stamped by a professional licensed in your state. In most cases we have working relationships established with engineers who can help you obtain the necessary drawings cost effectively, or you are welcome to source your own local engineer.

Your area may have specific energy codes that have to be followed. Compliance could include filling out forms providing evidence that your construction drawings meet requirements. In many cases the forms are simple and can be filled out by yourself, or with the aid of your General Contractor.

Building jurisdictions in several states - including California, New York, New Jersey, Nevada and Illinois - require that your home design is reviewed and entire construction drawings stamped by a local professional. If you are building in such an area, it is most likely you will need to hire a state licensed structural engineer to analyze the design and provide additional drawings and calculations required by your local building department.

In addition to the construction drawings, you may also need a site plan that shows where the house is going to be located on your chosen property, along with any grading and water management / septic system requirements.

If you aren’t sure what may be required, contact your building department and ask for a list of all of the items they require to submit for and obtain a building permit.
