Conceptual House Plan 1577

Leave us your feedback and suggestions at the bottom of this post!

Conceptual design 1577 is an updated version of The Roark house plan 1406. The exterior is a mix of siding and board-and-batten. Decorative gable brackets and metal roof accents meet a center shed dormer. This design features a side-entry garage and a welcoming front porch.

A cathedral ceiling and fireplace highlight the great room and the rear porch enjoys skylights. The island kitchen has a window and a large pantry nearby. A tray ceiling tops the spacious dining room.

The master suite enjoys an elegant tray ceiling and two walk-in closets. The master bathroom offers a large double vanity and a massive walk-in shower. Two additional bedrooms share a full bathroom and a hall closet provides extra storage.

Find plentiful storage in the garage and a drop zone just inside the garage entry for dropping coats, bags and shoes. The utility room is only steps away and offers a laundry sink. An optional bonus room with full bathroom is upstairs for an additional bedroom, guest suite, or media room.

      I second EVERYTHING that L.S. has said! The biggest problem with this plan for Midwesterners is the configuration of the front and back entrances, as L.S. points out. When kids come into the house from the garage in winter, they have backpacks, snow boots, hockey sticks, ice skates, etc. So the family entrance can benefit from a larger space with cubbies and hooks for coats. Same is true for the formal entrance. Guests come in with wet, muddy boots and need a space to sit to take off the boots and a big closet to hold coats, hats, gloves, etc. You get the idea. An additional suggestion: If the kitchen at back/ dining room in front configuration remains the same, the dining room should be deeper because it is the pathway into the house proper. Otherwise the dining table is in the way. This would be a superb plan for empty nesters, and that's what we are, and we are looking for a smaller one story plan. The master toilet in a little room is not great for older folks. Please consider creating this plan with ADA requirements in mind--e.g. wide doorways, etc. I would love to see this plan with these suggestions and all those of L.S., including a modern country exterior with front entry garage. Thanks for listening! Thanks for As L.S. suggests, a basement stairway would be great. Slab-on-grade could work as long as, as L.S. points out, it is not flat to the ground. It seems that nobody puts in utility closets anymore. Where does one store the vacuum cleaner, the mops, brooms, fly swatters, etc.? It is more economical in the Midwest (generally) to have an additional room in the basement, rather than upstairs. Midwesterners LOVE basements.

      I am absolutely intrigued by this plan. We are looking for similar square footage but in a northern state, which requires some adjustments. 1. Entrance foyer needs room for guests to drop off boots and hang up winter coats in capacious guest closet. Have you thought of marketing your plans more extensively in the Midwest? 2. Owners' entrance. In winter, when you come in, you take off your boots and coats, etc. and store them in a big closet. You need a drop zone for the mail. Love the separate utility room in this plan, but can it be configured past the entrance? Pantry space is vital, but move it past the entrance. What about utility closet for vacuum cleaner and brooms/mops (snow mop-up at entry). 3. We are looking for an aging-in-place plan. so would like ADA option for toilet in master bath (not in hard-to-enter separate space with door). 4. Master closet is great but should be all one space (not two). If there could be an interior window or entrance into the utility room from the master bath, that would be fantastic. (Way to move soiled clothes to w/d) 5. Front entrance garage (easier to have straight driveway to street to plow). 6. Reverse the kitchen and dining room--better access to the back with screened porch and deck. 7. Make the exterior Modern Country style. 8. Midwesterners love basements, but a slab-on-grade could also work, as long as it is not flat-to-the -ground because of snow and melting problems. So how about a basement staircase? We Baby Boomers are looking around for smaller, efficient homes with great style but easy down-sizing. Thanks for listening!

      Would love to see a bedroom upstairs over the dining room, with a small kitchen in bonus room. Move the stairs 3 ft to the right make them L shaped with a totally separate entrance next to the garage door. Turn the upstairs into a independent mother-in-law/ airbnb suite the market needs more house plans like that.
