*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.

Stately brick surrounds most of the front elevations of this traditional house plan. The Wilmert Grove is a handsome one story home plan that is sure to be a favorite of homeowners’ and builders alike.
Slender posts with brick bases frame the front door. Stepping inside the entry is cozy. In the middle of the entry hall a large opening to the left leads to the Wilmert Grove’s secondary bedrooms. If three bedrooms are not needed this design has an option that would replace the two secondary bedrooms with an additional owners’ suite.
At the end of the entry hall the floor plan opens up to the great room family center. Dining room, living room, and kitchen are one seamless space. First up is the dining area. Three windows along the left wall fill this section of the great room with plenty of natural light. A built-in desk runs along one side of the dining room creating an ideal study or space to work from home. Along the back of the great room is the living room. Again richly windowed and naturally bright the living room also features a fireplace with built-in as well as access to the backyard and optional deck. The great room is completed with the kitchen which is filled with modern appliances and loads of counter space and cabinet storage. Additional features include an eating bar and pass-through, walk-in pantry.
Around the corner from the great room a hallway traverses to the right. Off this hallway is access to the homes attached two car garage. At the end is the laundry room and if the optional third garage bay is constructed there is direct access from the laundry room to this single car garage bay.
The owners’ suite is accessed off the living room and is nicely separated from the other bedrooms. A tray ceiling decorates the suite which also boasts a private bathroom with twin sinks and a walk-in closet that has direct access to the laundry room. For those considered with walking laundry through the home, this is layout is very ideal.
