House Plans

We are currently talking with a design/build company located in Seattle to talk numbers and figure out if our desire to build is feasible for us. Our budget isn't the largest out there but they are willing to work with us to see if this is in the cards for us.

One option is to find some floor plans I like and just have them modify them to suit our land and build codes - that would save money on the design and put that money back into the build part. And that works perfectly for us because I think I know what I like and want.

The tweaks for us would involve:
  • No sun deck or covered porch
  • The upstairs would be a simple open loft. No bedrooms or bathroom. It would be a bonus space which is exactly what we need.
So keeping in mind the above changes, here are some photos of a house built with this floor plan as shown on Linwood Home's website.

Front of house - entry way

Back of house - we would not have the basement space as shown here.

Living room space - open floor concept. The 2nd floor would be an open loft bonus space.


So that's where we are. Still researching, still planning, nothing set in stone and no decisions made.  We will have a meeting with the design/build company now that I have sent her this floor plan and hear what she has to say and we'll find out if this is all a pipe dream or if it might be possible for us to do this.
