A Walk Through The Saxon

If you’re looking for a house plan with open interior spaces that reflect the wide-open spaces outdoors, the Saxon is an excellent choice. This is a Farmhouse-style design with a modern twist. Plenty of large windows along with an innovative layout give you endless ways to create scenic views with your landscape. With a stone and stucco exterior, the Saxon blends the more traditional farmhouse theme with hints of European luxury.

As you approach, the Saxon greets you with a gorgeous walled front porch that gives you a sheltered, private place to enjoy a lazy afternoon. Through the front entrance, you’ll find a spacious foyer with an archway that opens into a corridor where you can access two of the home’s bedrooms and a half bath.

The foyer leads you to the home’s massive grand hall. In this space, you’ll have room for both a living and dining area – perfect for entertaining guests or spending time with your family. A wall of windows along the back of the grand hall overlooks the back porch and your beautiful landscape.

The kitchen is situated between the Saxon’s front porch and the grand hall. With a smart three-walled design and central island, this kitchen is large enough to accommodate all the amenities you need, but compact enough to make cooking and cleaning easy. The range, sink and refrigerator are within arm’s reach of the island, which means you’ll never need to waste energy carrying pots, pans or containers of food across the kitchen.

From the home’s dining area, you can enter a small corridor that features yet more conveniences. In this corridor, you’ll have access to the two-car garage, the pantry, a hall closet and the home’s utility room. Within the utility room, you’ll find the washer and dryer, a utility sink and countertops for folding laundry. A small closet in this room helps you keep linens and laundry supplies organized.

At the opposite end of the dining area is another corridor that opens into the study and the master suite. The master bedroom has its own entrance onto the back porch and large windows along the rear wall. In between the doorway to the porch and the windows is a large fireplace that will fill your evenings with warmth and comfort.

Within the master bathroom, the luxuries continue. It starts with a spa tub that sits in its own alcove along the rear wall of the home. Windows all around the tub give you an amazing connection to the outdoors as you enjoy a relaxing soak. There is also a large, naturally lit tiled shower, a secluded toilet area and a dual sink. Just off the bathroom, a walk-in closet puts clothing, accessories and linens within easy reach.

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.

Firstly, 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!

Secondly, as owners and original designers of all the plans in our collection, we have ultimate version control of all the construction drawings, and regularly update our drawings to meet forever changing building codes. Buying directly means that plan support comes directly from the creators of the design. We also have exclusive access to our entire catalog of CAD drawings, with the ability to modify them quickly and cost effectively, or even provide a previously modified version of a stock plan that is not available with any other authorized seller. Call our customer care staff to discuss any modifications you would like to have done, and if the modification exists already - it can save you lots of time and cost. You're not going to find that anywhere else!

Furthermore, we know our plan collection inside out! If you have questions about an element in the design, or even a question during construction - we are the ones able to answer those questions for you, quickly and accurately.

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.

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.
