A Walk Through The Brookshire

Modern contemporary homes come with loads of curb appeal. The Brookshire welcomes you with an artistic exterior design featuring low sloped roofs and interesting geometry. Because these are sloping lot house plans, this home is designed to nestle perfectly into rolling, forested surroundings. What’s more, this home’s second floor gives you an amazing deck from which you’ll spend many hours relaxed in lounge chairs, enjoying the picturesque view.

Once you’ve parked the car in the convenient lower floor garage, you’ll proceed up the steps and into the main floor, where a spacious open area awaits. Here, the great room, dining area and kitchen combine to give the Brookshire a roomy feel. Sliding glass doors out onto the deck means that as you’re hosting holiday dinners, guests can overlook the twinkling Christmas lights you’ve placed out in the front yard. A large fireplace will lend warmth and cheer to the event, too, and once your guests have left for the evening, you can curl up in a blanket and enjoy the rest of the night quietly.

Modern house plan designs aren’t complete without a home office. The Brookshire’s main floor gives you just such a space so that you’ve got a quiet, organized place to spend those work-at-home days. Beautiful windows give you a great view of the backyard as you work, and built-ins keep books and office supplies organized and within easy reach. This is the perfect place for a writer, an artist, or anyone in need of a secluded spot to get work done.

The Brookshire’s upper floor is designed around your family’s needs. Here, the laundry room is only a few steps away from each of the bedrooms, which will make laundry day much simpler since you won’t need to trudge up and down steps with lots of laundry baskets. For the kids, two bedrooms will keep them snug at night. Best of all, a shared bathroom between each of these bedrooms gives them their own private spaces to get ready before school in the mornings.

Finally, the master suite offers comfort and a sense of space with a vaulted ceiling. After a restful night, you’ll enjoy the convenience of the master bath, which features a tiled shower and his-and-hers sinks. A walk-in closet keeps clothes and accessories handy, too, so you won’t need to rush around in the mornings to put an outfit together!

Why you should buy your Mascord plan directly from us

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

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!

We only publish a small subset of 'base plans' through our publishing outlets and thrid party websites, but have direct access to thousands of previously modified versions in our inventory. Working with us directly, we can help to find the version that suits you best - sometimes without the need to modify further.

If you have questions about an element in the design, or your contractor has a question during construction - we are able to answer those questions for you quickly and accurately, without the need for you to go through a third party.

We support all of the plans we sell, and by purchasing direct, you're able to take advantage of the high level of customer service we provide.

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.

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.
