A Walk Through The Darlington

Everyone needs a place to get away. If your idea of a perfect getaway is somewhere on the coast, then the Darlington is perfectly suited to your needs. Build on a rise overlooking the ocean, and each day, you’ll be able to sit out on the back patio and watch the waves roll in as the salty breeze whispers through the pines around your home.

When the weather turns chilly, your new favorite haunt will be the Darlington’s kitchen, living and dining area. Windows along the rear and side of the home will give you an excellent view of the snow-covered pines and the endless ocean. With a fire roaring in the fireplace, you’ll have all the time in the world to enjoy a peaceful winter on the coast. Once dinnertime rolls around, you and the rest of your family can gather in the kitchen for a hearty bowl of clam chowder. You’ll have more than enough counter space to not only prepare this hearty dish, but also to make a batch of flaky biscuits and a fresh tossed salad.

Home-based entrepreneurs — or even people that enjoy a neat, organized space to take care of bills and other day-to-day tasks — will love the Darlington’s home office. Keep your files and office supplies in the built-in cabinets, then add a wraparound desk and bookshelves to make yourself feel at home. As you work throughout the day, the sunlight streaming through the front and side windows will help keep you refreshed, alert and on-task.

The Darlington’s upper floor is a compact, yet well-designed space. You’ll find two bedrooms for the kids (each with their own closets), a convenient linen closet at the end of the hall, and a full bathroom.

The rear half of the Darlington’s upper floor is devoted to the master suite, a restful, relaxing space that you’ll look forward to visiting each night. The master bedroom features windows along one side and along the rear wall, which lets you enjoy the moonlight as you drift off and the fresh sunshine when you awaken. And, if you dread the hustle and bustle of weekday mornings, you’ll come to love how the master bathroom and walk-in closet streamline your daily routine. His-and-hers sinks means no bumping elbows as you and your partner brush your teeth. In the closet, shelving and three walls of clothing racks makes it easy to pick out an outfit and the coordinating accessories.

Why buy from us?

We are the original designers of every home displayed and available on this website. Though you may sometimes find our home plans advertised and for sale elsewhere, 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.

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.

We support all of the plans we sell, and purchasing direct, you're able to take advantage of the high level of customer service we provide. If you have any questions, or to simply place an order for your home plans, call 800 411 0231.

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.
