Plan 21130 - The Shaftbury - Beautiful, Unusual Design to Fit Your Lifestyle

A Walk Through The Shaftbury
This home is unlike any other home. The Shaftbury has a traditional cottage look on the outside, but inside, you’ll find a modern floor plan uniquely suited to a dreamy coastal lifestyle. It all starts with the upper floor great room. From here, you’ll have a bird’s-eye view over the second-level deck and down to the shore, where waves are breaking against rocks and sand. This room is the perfect place to spend the Holidays. Between the warmth of the fireplace and the sparkling lights among your decorations, you’ll be filled with cheer.
Perhaps your favorite room will be the kitchen. With its U-shaped galley design, you’ll find that this kitchen is both compact and easy to clean. That same design, however, maximizes on the amount of available counter space and it puts every appliance within reach, making it easy for you to move from the range to the sink and the refrigerator and back again.
Maybe you stayed up far too late watching TV or maybe you’ve had a long, tiring day at work. Either way, the master suite is only a few steps away from the main living area. Fall into bed and enjoy the sparkling nighttime view through the front-facing picture window as you drift to sleep. This suite also features a private bathroom and large walk-in closet.
The Shaftbury’s lower floor is designed to be incredibly versatile. This floor contains not only the garage and laundry room, but also the second and third bedrooms and adjoining full bathroom. If you have children, they’ll love having the first floor all to themselves almost as much as they enjoy the third bedroom's sliding doors to their backyard play area. This floor can also be used as private guest quarters or as home office space. Either way, adults will love the pristine ocean views through windows and the sliding doors.
When it comes to outdoor spaces, few cottages have as many unique spaces as the Shaftbury. The front of the home is graced with an adorable Craftsman style porch — a feature that you will enjoy decorating throughout the seasons. To the rear of the home, the upper level deck is the ideal place to relax, soak up the sunshine and enjoy the ocean breeze. Beneath this deck, there is a patio that spans the entire back of the home. Here, you’ll spend your time either enjoying the shade or relaxing after a brisk walk along the shore.

This home is typical of the cottage style. In modern usage, a cottage is usually a modest, often cozy dwelling, typically in a rural or semi-rural location. However there are cottage-style dwellings in cities, and in places such as Canada the term exists with no connotations of size at all (cf. vicarage or hermitage). In the United Kingdom the term cottage also tends to denote rural dwellings of traditional build, although it can also be applied to dwellings of modern construction which are designed to resemble traditional ones ("mock cottages").
The Mascord collection of craftsman house plans highlight features that were first introduced with the Arts and Crafts movement, which thrived from 1876-1915, and continues to be celebrated today. These homes have great curb appeal, lots of detail and the amenities you need for modern living. Check out the collection for more great home designs.
If you're looking for a traditional beach house or a home with timeless colonial beauty, you should definitely check out the homes in the Shingle stylecollection. Homes in this collection typically feature steeper pitched roof lines, and shingle covered walls (of course!). They also have a smooth surface appearance with little or no decoration.
This plan has been chosen as part of our vacation home collection. Vacation homes generally have central, open living spaces and offer a great connection to the outdoors, perhaps including an outdoor kitchen or BBQ area. Some homes will have just a few bedrooms, creating a cozy private get-away for your family. Other homes will feature many bedrooms, designed fords family get-togethers at the coast or in the mountains - a place you can invite friends and family to join you in outdoor fun.

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.
