20x34 2-story Universal Cottage - the initial inspiration
with shed porch at front (included in plans).
This classic 20' wide farm house
style home is built with simple platform frame construction on your
choice of nine different foundation types to adapt to your specific
soils, budget and site. The home feels spacious and open but is
efficient with it's use of space.
Here is a link to a Floor Plan.
This plan has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, a utility hall and a
full sized wrap around stair. The stair can go down to a basement or on
up to the attic should you need to expand up there in the future.
Because of the simple framing system much of the interior layout can be
modified by the owner or builder. Click

The 16 page plan set includes all the drawings and information normally needed by builders and the building department:
Also included in the set is a booklet of helpful planning information and construction details including:
Your plans come with free reprinting rights. This means you can make as many copies as needed to build your project (but not to sell or give away). Since the plans are on 11x17 format you can do this at any local copy shop.
Template files are available for this house from our sister site PlanHelp.com. There is also a reversed floor plan template and PDF floor plan that can be printed. This can help you make floor plan changes and you can print out scale drawings that can then be pasted back into your paper plans. Note: The template files are not CAD files and do not have the structural information that is in the paper plans.
The available 6 page materials list (P012-B) includes all materials for the post & pier foundation, house framing, hardware, insulation, windows and doors, drywall, electrical, plumbing and interior trim. This can be helpful for pricing materials and tracking costs.
