A Walk Through The Millersburg
The Millersburg features elements that you’d normally expect in a mountain lodge but it’s perfectly suited to life in the suburbs. This home’s design is a beautiful mixture of both contemporary and rustic themes. Outside, wooden beams draw attention to the home’s many gables, while the shingle siding and stonework are reminiscent of a lodge in the mountains. The long, low design and multitude of windows put a contemporary twist on the otherwise old-fashioned style.
This home’s design centers around the outdoors. It starts with the vaulted outdoor living area that features a fireplace, grill and plenty of counter space for outdoor cooking. Moving inside, the entire rear of the home is lined with windows that give you an excellent view of the backyard. The kitchen and dining area opens conveniently to both the outdoor living space and the great room.
With such well-connected rooms, your entertaining options will be virtually limitless. Host a barbecue, and your guests can freely mingle between the great room, dining area and outdoor spaces. The connection between the dining area, great room and kitchen will keep the whole family together during the holidays. With a kitchen island large enough to seat five, you’ll spend many evenings gathered there with your family.
To the right of the living area are the master bedroom and the laundry room. The master bedroom’s large windows give this room a spacious, airy feeling, yet this room is removed far enough from the rest of the home to give you a sense of privacy and intimacy.
Just off the master bedroom is a large, luxurious full bathroom that features his-and-hers sinks and plenty of closet space. A large walk-in closet conveniently separates the master bedroom from the laundry room. The laundry room itself was designed to make life easier – to one side of the room, shelving gives you plenty of space for supplies, while counters on the opposite side of the room make it easy to sort and fold laundry.
When entering the home from the front, the foyer grants you an excellent view into the great room. To the right of the foyer is the home’s office, which features a closet, built-in shelving and window seating. To the left you’ll find bedrooms two and three, each with their own closet and a shared bathroom between them.
The two-car garage opens into a mudroom with a utility sink, bench and a convenient area to store jackets, shoes and boots. Next to the mudroom, you’ll find a half bath that is easily accessible from both the garage and the main living area.
The home’s second story has a fourth bedroom, third bathroom and a spacious bonus room. With a wet bar and large windows that overlook the backyard, this room is perfect as a recreational area, a place to host your children’s sleepovers or a space to watch the game with your friends.
Plan 2477 was designed to capture a stunning rear view from as many rooms as possible. This results in a floor plan that is noticeably wider than it is deep, which creates a footprint that is well suited for acreage or a large sprawling site.
The main living area was designed to comfortably accommodate entertaining large informal groups. The main living spaces can be opened to the outdoors at two locations via large sliding doors, allowing for a seamless transition and flow from indoors to out. A dramatic outdoor living space off of the dining room further allows and encourages a connection to the outdoors. When the weather dictates indoor entertaining, the large kitchen provides ample space for groups to gather and connect to the great room.
The central stair location made it possible to create a free-flowing circulation pattern at the lower level with multiple access points in and around the main living spaces. This arrangement adds both function and interest to the main floor plan, while allowing for a rec room and additional bedroom to be tucked into the main roof volume.

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.
Our Ranch style house plan collection comprises single level homes with elongated elevations that suit placement on acreage or suburban lots, and the easy living open floorplans are ideal for families with both young and aging family members. The homes you'll see in this collection typically have a rectangular or L-shaped footprint, and low-pitched roof. They are ideal for placement of photovoltaics!

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.
