A Walk Through The Bernadino
For the best one story homes, you can’t miss the Bernadino. This home’s single-level layout gives you all the luxuries you could dream of wrapped in a beautiful modern farmhouse package. The front porch, with its stately pillars, will welcome guests to your home. It’s also the perfect place to hang lots of colorful baskets of flowers in the summer. With a couple of comfortable chairs, this is a front porch where you can enjoy afternoon coffee with the neighbors.
This home’s rear porch gives you similar styling, only with more privacy. It’s the perfect place to line up lounge chairs for relaxing evenings staring out over the starlit fields behind your home. And, there is plenty of room here for a grill and everything else you need to put together summertime extravaganzas!
Inside, the Bernadino will keep you cozy over the winter. These single level floor plans allow for a spacious open floor plan that places the kitchen, living and dining area all in one spot. You won’t be able to resist starting a fire in the fireplace once the snow starts to fall, and with wide doors overlooking the rear porch, you’ll spend many warm hours wrapped up in a cozy blanket, sipping hot chocolate as you look out over the wintertime landscape.
The kitchen gives you a design that is fit for a chef. With a large island and plenty of counters, you’ll be able to pile up pots and pans as you work—and there will still be plenty of room left over so that you can let cookies, cakes or pies cool.
Modern home blueprints should all have a certain few features in common. For instance, the home office is a necessity these days, particularly if you work from home or if your career offers work-from-home days. Instead of commuting, you’ll find yourself in the quiet solitude of the Bernadino’s office, getting work done without disturbances.
Among other practicalities, this home features a mudroom between the garage and the rest of the home. Here, you can keep the mess from dirty shoes confined, and there is room to hang jackets and outerwear, too. Just across from the mudroom, a convenient laundry room is ready and waiting for dirty laundry, and it’s close to the two kid’s bedrooms, which means putting away clean clothes will be easy.
At the opposite end of the home, the master suite awaits. Because it is situated away from the kids’ rooms, you’ll enjoy peaceful sleep, especially on the weekends when the kids are busy being noisy with sleepovers. In the morning, the master bath, complete with a tiled shower, spa tub and his-and-hers sinks, will help you start the day right.

This home features in our Farmhouse plans collection. Farmhouse is a general term for the main house of a farm. It is a type of building or house which serves a residential purpose in a rural or agricultural setting. Most often, the surrounding environment will be a farm. Many farm houses are shaped like a T. The perpendicular section is referred to as the ell. Architectural styles vary, but very often they are of Cape Cod design. In general styles vary from region to region, but more often the style is simplistic so to serve the needs (and the budget) of the owners.
Modern farmhouse style homes are a type of architectural design that combines traditional farmhouse elements with modern design elements. These homes often have a warm and cozy feel, and are designed to be functional and welcoming.
Our Ranch style house plan collection comprises single level homes with elongated elevations that suit placement on acreage or suburban lots, and the easy living open floorplans are ideal for families with both young and aging family members. The homes you'll see in this collection typically have a rectangular or L-shaped footprint, and low-pitched roof. They are ideal for placement of photovoltaics! Take a look and tell us what you think.

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.
