*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).

Charming shingles grace the front of this two story house plan. The Collinswood design provides families with a contemporary floor plan wrapped in an eye-catching Craftsman exterior.
An L-shaped front covered porch has room to add some patio furniture for those who enjoy sitting in their front yard to watch the world go by. Inside, the entry is open and spacious. Nearby to the left is a coat closet and to the right a half bathroom plus a home office. If there is no need to work from home this space could be furnished as a den, hobby room, or study.
At the back of the entry, the floor plan opens up to the great room. Family room, dining room, and kitchen are all open to each other. This arrangement is ideal for those who enjoy casual living and entertaining. The family room features a cozy fireplace and built-in entertainment center. The back wall of the family room is richly windowed flooding the room with natural light. The transition to the dining room is seamless. Along the back wall of the dining room a sliding glass door allows light into the space while providing access to the back yard. A peninsular eating bar provides some visual separation between the kitchen and dining room. The comfortable kitchen boasts a corner walk-in pantry in addition to the modern appliances and ample counter space.
Off the kitchen is the laundry room, access to the attached two car garage, and basement stair access.
This Craftsman house plan has all four bedrooms on the upper level. Three of the bedrooms share a full bathroom. The loft at the top of the stairs is large enough to furnish as a sitting area, computer loft, or play area for families with smaller children.
The master bedroom is also on the second floor. This spacious retreat boasts two walk-in closets and a private bathroom complete with dual vanities, separate shower, soaking tub, and private toilet.
The open floor plan and sleeping areas separated from the main gathering areas are sure to make the Collinswood a home design that is enjoyed by homeowners and builders alike.
