A Walk Through The Letterham
Vacationers pay small fortunes to stay in mountain lodges that resemble the Letterham. Make this home your own, and that same secluded, luxurious lifestyle can be all yours. With stone and natural wood siding, the Letterham complements the rugged terrain and tall trees surrounding it. Imagine spending each day living a life of comfort and ease in the wilderness.
It starts with the open great room and kitchen, where you’ll spend many hours looking out through the trees and down into the valley below your home. The vaulted ceiling in the great room will give you a sense of space – and it will make room for that extra-tall Christmas tree you’ve always wanted! The roaring fire in the fireplace will keep you snug as you and your family decorate that tree.
You wouldn’t want to keep the Letterham all to yourself, which is why you’ll want to invite friends and family over regularly. Once your guests have become acquainted with some of the finer things that your home has to offer, you can wine and dine them in the Letterham’s formal dining room. Overnight guests can enjoy a restful stay in one of the home’s four upper story bedrooms – two of which feature their own private baths.
When it comes to work, you’ll enjoy the two offices. With numerous windows, these rooms give you a fresh, inspiring space to work as you watch the wind play among the trees outside. At lunchtime, you can head outside to the covered outdoor living space and enjoy a light meal.
The opposite end of the home is filled with even more rich comforts, starting with the master suite, which features its own private pergola. Each morning, you’ll be able to rise and head outside to enjoy the fresh air from this shady spot. Once you’re wide awake, a quick session in the home gym will leave you feeling energized, ready to tackle the day. In the enormous master bath, you can take a quick, cool shower or a long hot bath in the spa tub, as the mood strikes you.
This wing of the home also features a beautiful lounge with its own fireplace. This is the place that you’ll come to at the end of a long day. Enjoy the soothing warmth of the fireplace as you read a good book or relax with your friends.

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.
Our Lodge house plans are inspired by the rustic homes from the Old West. Whether you’re looking for a modest cabin or an elaborate timber-frame lodge, these homes will make you feel you’re away from it all (even if you live in the suburbs). The homes rely on natural materials for their beauty. Among the materials used are heavy timbers, wood siding, stone, gable end braces, and cedar shakes. While different in theme, each design promotes a rustic feel that will effortlessly blend with verdant landscapes and mountain vernacular. The floor plans promote outdoor views, making them ideal for sites with mountain vistas, cityscape scenes, and lakeside access.

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.
