Here is a custom home we’re designing to be built in northern Connecticut. The main level is about 1800 sq. ft. (does not include garage) and includes a beamed cathedral roof system (http://www.postandbeam.com/roof-framing-system) over the rear, central great room. To the front of the center section is stairway to the upper level, and an entry with a mudroom and half bath. One wing is for the kitchen and dining area, and the other is a master bedroom suite. The flat ceiling areas are under a Beamed Mid-Floor system (http://www.postandbeam.com/floor-framing-system). Upstairs is about 1340 sq. ft., and is home to two bedrooms on each wing, all under a cathedral Plaster and Accent Beam Roof System (http://www.postandbeam.com/roof-framing-system), a full bath, and a central loft that looks down onto the living space below. The basement walkout level is currently designed for storage and utilities, and has another full bath.
