*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).

This charming cottage inspired, Craftsman house plan is sure to be a favorite of homeowners and builders alike. The Kendra Springs home plan is sure to catch the eye of those passing by.
Tapered columns frame the front porch of this small house plan creating a wonderful place for a porch swing or other outdoor furniture. The recessed front door is sheltered from the elements.
Stepping inside the entry hall immediately opens to the left to a small hallway with two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Continuing down the entry hallway, the floor plan opens up to the great room.
The great room fills the back of the floor plan. Cathedral ceilings grace the family room which also features a fire place. The fire place ensures that the great room will be cheery and bright year round. The dining room and kitchen are completely open to the family room. This open-concept layout is ideal for those who enjoy a more casual lifestyle or informal entertaining. Off the dining room, a sliding glass door leads out to the backyard and optional deck. The boundary of the kitchen is marked only by the island with built-in eating bar.
A cased opening along the kitchen leads to a short mud hall with storage closet, drop zone and access to the attached two car garage.
Back in the family room, a cased opening leads to the owners’ suite. The owners’ suite is a retreat from the busy activities of the rest of the home and features a private bathroom with step-in shower, twin sinks and large walk-in closet.
If constructed on the unfinished basement foundation the homeowners have the opportunity to grow in the Kendra Springs house plan. The basement level can be finished to their specifications and provide additional gathering space, bedrooms or hobby room.
The compact footprint makes the Kendra Springs a narrow lot house plan ideal for those looking to build on small city lots.
