Located in southern Massachusetts, this hilltop rural home is a Custom Prow with our standard Beamed Exterior Wall System, designed with the potential for one-level living. The main level is about 1300 sq. ft. with the center section kitchen in the front under a Beamed Mid-Floor, and the center section rear is the dining room and great room under a Beamed Roof System and timber truss ceiling. The main level left wing is for the master bedroom suite, and the wing to the right includes a flexible-use room currently designed as an office, and the mudroom area with half-bath, laundry, utility closet, and the exit to the breezeway and garage (not included). A loft above the kitchen under a cathedral ceiling looks down onto the living space below. The walkout lower level is about 1300 sq. ft. with a full bath and two additional bedrooms flanking a generous family room.
We can customize our designs to better fit your needs, and even start a new design from scratch. Garages, walk-out/daylight basements, porches, decks, etc. can be added or removed. Our design service is included as part of the material package price; we do not have a separate architectural or design fee for creating or customizing your plan.
The lower package price assumes more drywall finishes, while the upper price assumes more exposed timbers and wood ceiling finishes. Select the wall system, mid-floor system, and roof system(s) you would like for your project based on aesthetics, budget, and practicality. Our package price can be reduced by removing any of the exterior finish materials that we typically supply (siding/ trim, roof shingles, windows/doors). Note that when shipping outside the northeast almost all packages have those items removed, as shipping them long distances doesn't usually make sense.
Depending on framing options you select, the price could be lower or higher. Pricing is expected to be valid through 2022, but may need to change if there are significant changes in material costs before then (currently an extremely volatile market). Walkout basements and/or garages can typically be added to any home, but are not included in our initial price (whether drawn on plans or not). Prices are based on engineering requirements of up to 90 mile per hour wind speed, up to 65 pound snow load, and low seismic activity zones. Our packages can be adapted for higher ratings; this may result in a higher price. Pricing errors on our site are rare, but a price change for your package may be required if a mistake is found.
