A Walk Through The Lucas

There are not many blueprints available quite like these. The Lucas is a wonderful blend of contemporary and prairie styles that makes it a real treat to behold. Elements like stone and natural wood siding give this home a wonderful woodland look that ensures this home will feel perfectly at home on large, wooded lots.

Inside, you’ll find all the amenities you could possibly wish for. Are you fond of throwing formal dinner parties? These house plans feature a beautiful dining room to accommodate your guests. Through a large archway, the kitchen is easily accessible—and what a beautiful kitchen it is, too. Wraparound counters and a large island allow you to feast those guests with ease. One unique feature to the dining space are the sliding glass doors that lead out to a covered porch. Here, you can enjoy brunch with friends, or your evening guests can step outside to enjoy the cool night air over drinks.

The Lucas’s great room gives you a vast sense of space, a large media center for your TV and Blu-ray collection, and a gorgeous built-in fireplace that will have you dragging out the blankets and slippers to enjoy toasty winter evenings. This space also overlooks the outdoor living space, which, with wide windows and doors, performs more as an extension of your living space than as a separate outdoor area. The outdoor living space gives you a roof so that you can enjoy the fresh air rain or shine, and there is plenty of room here for both seating and an outdoor kitchen.

From the outdoor living space, you can also access the Lucas’s master suite. This is truly a sumptuous suite! A fireplace awaits at the foot of the bed, which means you’ll certainly spend many long evenings curled up under the covers, enjoying the warmth and ambiance. Within the master bath, dual sinks, a spa tub and a large tiled shower give you that spa-like experience you’ve always wanted. The walk-in closet is enormous, with not only space for your entire wardrobe, but seating, built-in cabinets and shelving to keep all of your accessories organized. To top it off, the closet opens onto the laundry room, which makes laundry days easy.

There are even more features on the lower floor that you won’t be able to resist. On office with beautiful windows gives you a private place to get work done while you enjoy the beautiful view. There is a guest room on this floor, too, so that stay-over guests have their own private bed and bath to keep them comfortable during their stay.

This home’s upper floor is devoted to your children’s needs. Two bedrooms on a separate floor means you’ll enjoy privacy and quiet downstairs in the master suite. These bedrooms each give your kids a walk-in closet and their own private baths. Best of all, a covered balcony lets them enjoy the view outside, and you’ll find that the loft on this floor suits many purposes. Perhaps this space can be the library you’ve always wanted, or maybe it’ll become a play space for the kids, complete with desks where they can get their homework done when they’re not hard at play!

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.
