Simplify your laundry routine with direct access between the utility room and the master closet!
At Don Gardner Architects, we believe in an open-access design process. We release plans to our customers and builders from the conception phase, when they are nothing more than hand drawn sketches. This is done so that we may gather valuable feedback about what you, our customers, like or don’t like, and what features you are looking for in house floor plans. That feedback directly influences our existing plans and future conceptual plans.
One of the most requested features received has been the desire for direct access from the master bedroom closet to the utility room. In response, we have released a collection of house plans with this feature and we have even more that are in progress. View our selection of house plans with a master closet / utility room connection below!

Sherwin-Williams has announced their 2019 Color of the Year!
It’s never too early to start planning ahead if you are building or just redecorating in 2019. Sherwin-Williams has announced their Color of the Year for 2019 as Cavern Clay (SW7701). It’s perfect timing, as this hue is also a great fall color. If you’re not ready commit to a new paint color or even an accent wall, you can still draw inspiration from this earthy shade in your home decor. Cacti and succulents are a huge trend in home decor right now and just planting a few in terracotta pots is a great and subtle way to introduce this warm shade into your home.

The view is a major factor to consider when mulling lake house ideas. Hillside walkout designs are great for sloping lots and often will feature large windows are doors oriented to take advantage of a view. Typically these designs offer rear views, featuring windows — often with a sliding glass door for access to a porch or patio — at the rear of the home.
