*Plans are drafted to meet average conditions and building codes in Nebraska, Ohio, and Texas at the time they are designed (contact us for more information). Because codes and requirements can change and may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, the designers cannot warrant compliance with any specific code or regulation. All plans can be adapted to your local building codes and requirements. It is the responsibility of the purchaser and/or builder of each plan to see that the structure is built in strict compliance with all governing municipal codes (city, county, state, and federal).

A charming blend of shingles and lap siding create an eye-catching, country-inspired traditional house plan. Slender columns frame the boundary of the welcoming covered porch.
The entry is cozy. To the left, the floor plan opens up to the family room. The living area is open and informal. The family room features a fireplace. Along the back of the family room, a set of stairs leads down to the homes unfinished basement. The basement level provides possibilities for future gathering areas or to bolster the homes storage.
Back at the family room, the kitchen and dining area fill the back of the great room. The kitchen boasts an eating bar which adds to the informal seating available or provides a great place to monitor homework or serve up snacks. A door at the back of the kitchen leads to the back covered porch.
A hallway off the kitchen leads to the bedrooms plus the laundry room. The laundry room has a pass-through layout serving as the connection between the home and the attached two car garage.
This small house plan has all three bedrooms grouped on the right side of the floorplan. The master bedroom is closest to the living area and boasts a private bathroom and walk-in closet. Beyond the master bedroom are two additional bedrooms that share a full bathroom.
At only 40’ wide, the Calverton BL is a great design to consider when building on a narrow lot.
