*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 graceful brick arch frames the front door and covered porch. Stepping inside the entry is cozy and decorated with columns. Through the first set of columns the hallway opens up to provide access to two of the three bedrooms in this house design. If three bedrooms are not needed the Wilmert Gable has an optional floor plan that provides a second owners’ suite in place of the two bedrooms.
Continuing down the entry hall, an opening to the right leads to a hallway that traverses to the right. From here there is access to the attached, side entry two car garage plus the laundry room. If the optional third bay is constructed there is direct access to the one car garage from the laundry room.
At the end of the entry hall, the floor plan opens up to the great room style family center. First up is the dining area which is naturally bright from three windows along the left wall. In the dining room there is also a built-in desk that makes for an ideal place to study or work from home. At the back of the great room is the living room. Complete with built-ins, a fireplace, and access to the backyard and optional covered deck. Rounding out the great room is the kitchen. In addition to the modern appliances and counter space the kitchen boasts an eating bar and a pass-through, walk-in pantry.
The access to the owners’ suite is off of the living room. Nicely separated from the other bedrooms the owners’ suite fills the back corner of the floor plan. Decorated with a tray ceiling the suite boasts a private bathroom with dual vanities and a large walk-in closet that has direct access to the laundry room. This is an ideal layout for those who prefer to avoid walking their laundry through the middle of the home.
If constructed without the optional garage bay, the Wilmert Gable is a mere 41’ wide making it a great design for those building on narrow lots to consider.
