House 337 Full Plans by Built4ever House 337 Full Plans by Built4ever
Continuing adventures of House 337, WIP, each part of the plan will be filled out as I lay out the whole thing. It includes more detailed technical information including joist numbers and floor area, provisions for air returns for the HVAC, information on wood species and exact detail drawings of trusses and beams, specs on the foundation, etc. Also interesting: I drew a dotted line to indicate load paths for beams, purlins, and trusses, traceable to the foundation. Some of the beams have been "sized" (light engineering.) Problems? Let me know... All drawings done by hand in scale 1/16"=one foot for plans, elevations, and cross sections, and a little bigger for truss and beam details. Perspective drawing drawn from imagination. I scan all the drawings, "arrange" on the computer, and label them. This plan will continue to evolve over time, keep watching my site. Sorry for fine print, hope you can read it!

Draftsmen and architects tend to keep bedrooms away from the garage let alone on top of them.

Even sound proofing like cork or even solid cement or bluestone work have trouble making up for the sound polution of a garage.

Rumpus/Trophy rooms go well on top of garages.

Architects, not draftsmen! Draftsmen copy! Yes, I absolutely agree, and never put a master suite above the garage because of garage door noise and vibration. In this particular design I broke that rule and assumed that maybe two teenagers would be living in the rooms above the garage, more private from rest of house, and not suitable for young children. I sacrificed the big room 5 steps up from second floor, above the living area, to be flex space, but it could easily be a one bedroom/bath/closet combo. Also, keep in mind, with a walk-out basement, I have opportunity to do at least two bedrooms in the basement. WIP which is why the rooms over garage are not quite there yet!

Closest I've ever found to my dream house. The reading nook is gorgeous-- especially like the cellar/basement entrance underneath. All the different styled windows, varying sloping sections of the roof, extension of the chimney, and the sweeping porch-- such a beautiful house with so much character.

That's...really cool. I mean REALLY REALLY cool. There's a lot of detail, and it's a very beautiful house.

The coolest thing about this drawing is that it could be made in it's entirety somewhere. Now THAT is creation. Would be pretty sick to live in your own mind's creation.

Yes, I plan for it to be built some day which is why I spec out beams and trusses and floor joists etc.

I really love the idea of the "reading nook"
