A Walk Through The Munich

If you love the coastal lifestyle — cool sea breezes, sunlight sparkling over waves, and more — then the 1231B is your ideal home. You’ll spend hours outside, enjoying the sun from the upper deck. Friends and family, when they visit, will enjoy lounging in comfortable deck chairs in your resort-style space.

If you need a bit of shade, but still want to enjoy the sound of waves and sea birds, the lower deck is the place to be. Here, you can kick back and read a book in your own personal retreat.

Just inside the French doors on the lower deck, there is a games room and guest bedroom. You can use this space in so many ways. Build a home theater, stock the room with tables and board games, or get the pool table that you’ve always wanted. No matter what you do, this is certain to become the place that all of your friends want to visit.

The upper floor is where you’ll host more formal events. In the winter, as snow blankets the ground and the Christmas tree sparkles in your great room, your guests will still be able to enjoy the ocean view through French doors. Seat them in front of the fireplace or call them into the dining area for a holiday feast. The kitchen, with its smart design, will make it easy for you to cook and entertain, and the bar counter on the island can serve as a casual eat-in space or as a serving area.

Whether you need space for the family or more guest space, the two bedrooms on the main floor will serve you well. Since they are situated at the opposite end of the home from the master bedroom, both you and the kids will enjoy a sense of privacy. These two bedrooms share a bathroom, which makes school mornings easier on you if you have kids.

The 1231B offers more than relaxing, entertaining spaces. This home also has a practical side. People that work from home will love the den, which opens right off the foyer. Turn this space into your own private home office or use it as a studio.

Busy laundry days are always a chore, but the mud room off of the garage makes laundry so much easier. This room is only a short distance away from the home’s bedrooms, so you won’t need to lug heavy laundry baskets up and down stairs or across the entire home. And, on shopping days, you’ll appreciate the fact that the pantry and kitchen are just a short jaunt away from the garage and your grocery-laden car.

Designers Insight

The munich represents the top modifications made to one of our most popular designs - the Galen. More often than not, we have found homeowners love the Galen but have a sloping lot, or need some extra space for expanded family. The Munich delivers!

Why you should buy your Mascord plan directly from us

We are the designers of every home displayed and available on this website. Though you may sometimes find our home plans advertised and for sale elsewhere both online and in print, it makes sense to purchase your plan directly. Place your order confidently knowing your home plans come from the original source, and that you have the support of the designer of your home.

As the original designer and copyright owner - we can beat any lower price you find a Mascord plan for sale - on any website authorized to sell our plans. Before you make your purchase, simply give us a call, direct us to the site you have seen the lower advertised price, and we'll not only match that price - we'll also give you a further 5% discount and extra special customer care :-). (The advertised plan must be the same as the plan being purchased, including product type - 5 Set, 8 Set, Hybrid, Reproducible, or CAD File, etc). Our standard price-beating guarantee refers to regularly listed prices, but if you find any coupon, special offer, bonus offer, freebies or rebate offered on a competing website, call us, tell us where it is, and we'll see if we can beat that too!

We only publish a small subset of 'base plans' through our publishing outlets and thrid party websites, but have direct access to thousands of previously modified versions in our inventory. Working with us directly, we can help to find the version that suits you best - sometimes without the need to modify further.

If you have questions about an element in the design, or your contractor has a question during construction - we are able to answer those questions for you quickly and accurately, without the need for you to go through a third party.

We support all of the plans we sell, and by purchasing direct, you're able to take advantage of the high level of customer service we provide.

Will This Design Work For Your Location?

The base code requires that the design of your structure meet certain requirements. The code allows for a couple of ways to meet these requirements. The first method is known as "prescriptive" wall bracing, and is built into the code as prescribed building elements that must be included at specified positions of the building. Prescriptive methods are acceptable as long as the structure's design fits within certain limitations (wall height, window size/location, etc.). The second method is to demonstrate, by engineering analysis, the forces imposed upon the structure, and the design of structural elements to withstand those forces. Whereas the prescriptive method imposes certain limitations on the design of the structure, the engineering analysis of the building allows for greater flexibility in the design, while ensuring it can withstand the actual natural forces the structure will experience.

In almost all cases, Mascord designs will require site specific engineering analysis. This analysis is required to be conducted by a professional, such as a structural engineer, who is licensed by the state in which the structure will be built. The analysis is specific to the exact building site - for this reason, we do not have "pre-engineered" plans that can be built anywhere. An engineer will need to review the plans and provide an engineering analysis report and additional drawings and specifications to go along with your plans for permit submittal. You should allow for additional time and expense to complete this process.

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.

When the design includes retaining walls, these will also require engineering. Although the code provides for some prescriptive basement and concrete/masonry wall designs, these only work in limited situations. The use of site-engineered retaining walls allows for much greater design flexibility and ensures that the walls are designed specifically for the design loads, unique soils, fluid pressures, and drainage characteristics at the building site. It makes little sense to place the most expensive investment a family typically makes onto a foundation that is not designed for the unique characteristics of the land on which it is set.

All Mascord house plans 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).

Your area may have also 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.

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

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.

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.

Building jurisdictions in several states - including California, New York, New Jersey, Nevada and Illinois - require that your home design is reviewed and your entire set of construction drawings is 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.

Although we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of our design information, we reserve the right to make corrections on our floor plans or elevations as needed.
