*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 classic combination of stone, shingles, and lap siding grace the front of this Craftsman house plan. The Steele Magnolia is sure to catch the eye of neighbors passing by.
The front door is framed by two columns with stone bases. The covered porch extends out to the right and is large enough for a porch swing or a set of chairs if desired.
Stepping inside the entry is spacious and open. Straight ahead is a coat closet and there is room to the left for a small bench if desired. A column denotes the boundary of the flex room that is to the right. Depending on the homeowners’ needs this room could be a home office, den, study, or formal living room.
The back of the floor plan opens up to the great room. Living room, dining room, and kitchen are one seamless space. The living room features a fireplace and is nice and bright from the bank of windows that fill the rear wall. An island provides a visual barrier separating the living room from the kitchen. Filled with ample counter space and cabinet storage the kitchen also boasts an eating bar built into the island and a walk-in pantry. The dining room completes the create room and offers access to the Steele Magnolia’s covered deck. Off the dining room is a pocket office. If the home office is not needed, this would also make a wonderful homework nook.
An opening off the kitchen leads to a hallway that provides access to the mud hall and powder bath. The mud hall is furnished with a bench and lockers plus a drop zone. There is also access to the home’s attached three car garage from the mud hall.
This two story house plan has all four bedrooms on the upper level. Three of the bedrooms share a compartmentalized bathroom with dual vanity and a combination tub/shower. The owners’ suite is a spacious retreat with a private bathroom and a large walk-in closet. From the owners’ suite bathroom there is direct access to the second floor laundry room.
