On the outside, the Sweetwater’s interesting design feels sophisticated and artistic — the kind of curb appeal that makes a home the envy of a neighborhood. Inside, you’ll find more of this theme, but you’ll also find living spaces that were designed with the needs of a growing, changing family in mind.
Just inside the foyer, for instance, you’ll find a full bathroom and a den. This area doesn’t necessarily need to be a den, however. Use this room as office space, a guest bedroom, or an extra bedroom for the kids.
Further into the home, you’ll find yet another flexible room off of the kitchen and dining area. This room features built-in cabinets, tall corner windows and a doorway to the patio. What will you do with this room? Imagine your own home gym, or if you are a gardener, then this room can easily be your sunroom. Perhaps you require a large, sunny office or maybe you just want a peaceful place to work on hobbies. No matter what, this space will accommodate you.
Speaking of accommodations, the upper floor gives you two bedrooms for your children, separated by a handy laundry room in between, which will make it easy for you to keep up with the dirty clothes that never seem to stop piling up. On the other side of the upper floor, you’ll find the master suite, which features a beautifully designed master bath and a massive walk-in closet. The master bedroom itself is a bright and airy space featuring clerestory windows and a large picture window along the back wall. Here, you’ll spend many hours simply relaxing and enjoying the gorgeous forested view around your home.
Finally, there is the Sweetwater’s main living space to consider — and the family memories that you will make here. On Christmas morning, the kids will dash down the steps and into the great room where the Christmas tree is sparkling in the windowed corner. You and your family will enjoy many Christmas mornings in your pajamas, gathered around the fireplace, excitedly opening presents.
Later on, you’ll spend hours watching your kids play with their presents as you work in the kitchen, preparing them a Christmas feast. This kitchen is spacious enough that you can put your children to work decorating cookies around the island and still have enough space left to work on the evening meal along the counters. Or, maybe you’d rather the kids stay out from underfoot entirely. Send them outside to play, and you can watch them build snowmen and make snow angels all day long through the wide windows throughout the dining area and great room.
Sophisticated Look Outside, Smart Design Inside
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.
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.
