A Walk Through The Thatcher

Imagine living in a dreamy French Country chateau. You can have all that and more in the Thatcher. This lovely design would be right at home in the French countryside. Every exterior detail, from the stucco siding and the multi-gabled roofline to the quaint bonneted dormers, speaks of classic European style. With bay windows and gracefully curved walls, the rear of the home is almost more beautiful than the front. The two-level design, with an outdoor living space on the main level and a patio on the lower level, gives you many wonderful landscaping opportunities.

The Thatcher’s interior design is filled with breathtaking possibilities. The front door opens into a large, welcoming foyer. From there, you have ready access to the master suite, the home office, the main living area and the staircase to the home’s lower level.

Once you see this home’s living area, you’ll know that this plan was designed with guests in mind. A bay window in the great room serves as a beautiful focal point for the entire living space. With ample counters, a massive island, and a bright, sunlight nook, the kitchen is perfect for both quiet mornings and fun-filled evenings. The dining area is open enough for guests to flow from space to space, yet closed enough to accommodate more intimate gatherings.

As you enter this home from its attached four-car garage, you’ll find yourself in a corridor filled with conveniences. This space leads to the kitchen, but along the way you’ll find a half bathroom, a pantry, the laundry room and a small mud room for coat and shoe storage. From the garage, you can also access a walkway that leads you past a well-planned landscape area as you move towards the outdoor living space.

The luxurious master suite is on the opposite end of the main floor. This suite is absolutely packed with gorgeous features, including a large bay window, a private patio off the bedroom and a barrel-vaulted ceiling in the bathroom. The master bathroom also features a spa, tiled shower and his-and-her sinks. From the bathroom, you can access not one but two large walk-in closets, complete with built-in cabinetry and a storage area for linens.

The Thatcher’s lower level features three bedrooms, a home gym, a cedar closet and two unfinished storage areas. The gym and fourth bedroom share a bathroom that includes both a shower and a sauna.

The lower level’s primary attraction, however, is the home theater. This space features a full wraparound wet bar with a refrigerator and an attached wine cellar. Further into this room, you’ll notice that there is plenty of space to seat several guests for sports games, movie nights or any other event you can imagine. The theater opens onto a large patio, which gives your guests quick access to the delights awaiting them outside.

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.
