Hillside designs offer the best solutions to sites that have slopes. This hillside Craftsman is not only spacious and accommodating, but is a visual treat. The angled main entry is impressive without ostentation and opens to a main level that is rife with livability. The foyer contains a grand staircase with double entry to the lower level. To the right is a gallery opening to the great room, which has double doors to a covered deck with outdoor storage. The fireplace sits alongside the media center. Nearby are the formal dining room, a butler's pantry, an island kitchen and a nook with patio access. The master suite and den are accessed from the left side of the foyer. Look for a well-appointed bath in the master suite and built-ins in the dens. A laundry and half-bath complete the main level. The lower level offers three additional bedrooms - each with private bath. A games room on this level has a fireplace and media center, plus double doors to a covered patio. There is also a wine cellar, a computer center, a wet bar, a home theater and a laundry room.

This home is a gorgeous example of one of our craftsman houseplans. In the mid-1970s, a revivalism of sorts began among American collectors and preservationists. Pottery, glassworks, furniture, lighting, and houses from the turn of the 20th century were rediscovered and being celebrated for their simplicity of design and traditional beauty. These artistic remnants of the Arts and Crafts movement, which thrived from 1876-1915 continue to be celebrated today.

Our Lodge house plans are inspired by the rustic homes from the Old West. Whether you’re looking for a modest cabin or an elaborate timber-frame lodge, these homes will make you feel you’re away from it all (even if you live in the suburbs). The homes rely on natural materials for their beauty. Among the materials used are heavy timbers, wood siding, stone, gable end braces, and cedar shakes. While different in theme, each design promotes a rustic feel that will effortlessly blend with verdant landscapes and mountain vernacular. The floor plans promote outdoor views, making them ideal for sites with mountain vistas, cityscape scenes, and lakeside access.
