*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 traditional house plan is sure to be a welcomed addition to any subdivision. The Frahm two story home plan is sure to be a favorite of homeowners and builders alike.
A double set of slender posts frame the front door. Stepping inside the casual floor plan opens up the family room. The cozy entry has room for a bench and coat hook if desired.
The family room is completely open to the dining room and kitchen. An optional fireplace gives homeowners or builders the flexibility to add this feature if desired. Off the dining room, a set of barn doors open to reveal a pocket closet which could be used as a study nook. The kitchen offers ample work space plus a center island with eating bar. Access to the optional patio is from the kitchen making this space in the backyard ideal as a grill space. Laundry appliances are tucked away in a closet off the kitchen.
Down a short hall is the walk-in pantry plus the mud hall with drop zone and access to the attached two car garage.
For those with aging parents or who entertain long distance family and friends, the Frahm offers a guest apartment in the back of the home. With two, separate exterior accesses the in-law apartment provides a cozy great room with kitchen, a full bathroom, bedroom and mud hall with private laundry appliances and a drop zone.
This two story house plan has all three bedrooms in the main home on the upper floor. The owners’ suite is decorated with a tray ceiling and has a private bathroom with twin sinks and a large walk-in closet. The other two bedrooms share the second full bathroom on the upper level.
