*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).

The Costello is a traditional house plan filled with a modern floor plan. The combination of shingles, stone, and lap siding are eye-catching and sure to allow the Costello design to fit into almost any subdivision.
Tapered columns with stone bases frame the front covered porch. This inviting space is large enough to accommodate a porch swing or other outdoor furniture.
Inside the foyer is spacious. A coat closet is to the left. To the right a set of stairs leads up to the second floor and beyond that an opening leads to a flex room. Barn doors along the back wall allow the flex room to be closed off from the family room, allowing the space to serve as a home office, den or formal living room depending on the family’s lifestyle and needs.
Back at the entry, a hallway leads straight back passing a pocket office on the left along with a half bathroom. At the end of the hall, the floor plan opens up to the great room. Family room, dining room, and kitchen are arranged in a casual and open layout. The family room features a fireplace that is framed by windows on each side so this room is bright year-round. Between the family room and kitchen is the dining room which has a sliding glass door accessing the backyard. The kitchen completes the dining room and boasts a center island and large walk-in pantry.
Off the kitchen is a mud hall outfitted with a bench and lockers plus a drop zone for electronics and coat closet. At the end of the mud hall is a pet center complete with shower. There is also access to the attached two car garage with additional storage.
This three bedroom house plan has all three sleeping areas on the upper floor creating a great sense of separation from the busier gathering areas. In addition to the bedrooms the laundry room is on the second floor. The owners’ suite fills the right side of the upper floor plan and features a large, private bathroom with dual vanities, private toilet, and walk-in shower plus a generous sized walk-in closet.
