Floor Plan Description:

The Bristol is an easy to build and affordable option for those looking to build a small modern cabin or guest house.

  • Unlike many modern houses, this floor plan is designed to be very simple to build, without complicated details or non-standard components which helpskeep the construction costs down.
  • The welcoming front porch offers a shaded location to enjoy the outdoors.
  • An unique offset mono-slope roof allows for a set of dramatic clerestory windows that flood the living room and kitchen with natural light.
  • An optional woodstove adds appeal for colder climates. 

Foundation Note:

For basement foundations, stair is shown per plan. You can use our flat rate modification service to layout out the basement interior.

Slab and crawlspace foundation orders will omit the staircase (opening up the living room for more space).

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do the Foundation Options Work?

All of our plans come with a slab or crawlspace option. Most of our plans also come with a basement option, but that option is sometimes not available when there is no interior staircase. For basement plans, the staircase access is typically under the main stair as shown on the floorplan. The basement plan is delivered as a blank slate in the same footprint as the conditioned first floor. We can help you layout a custom basement floor plan using our flat rate customization service. 

For a slab or crawlspace foundation, the area under the main stair area is typically delivered as a closet. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions! 

Are these house plans to code & permit ready?

We design all of our plans to the  International Residential Code (IRC / IBC) which is the most widely adopted code. However building code is administered at the local jurisdiction (there are estimated to be more than 20,000 jurisdictions in the US!). So there may be some subtle variations that need require edits. 

 

We pride ourselves on our very detailed plans, and are constantly updating our house plans to ensure that they meet even the most stringent permit requirements. Locations may require local site-specific structural engineering or a locally licensed architect to review and stamp plans. 

 

We recommend all house plans get reviewed by a structural engineer to optimize for local design conditions (site topography, soil conditions, snow loads, wind loads, & seismic loads).

Can I get a printed set of plans?

Yes, you can add any number of printed plan sets in the cart page for $40/ea shipped 3rd party. 

Alternatively, plans can be easily printed at your local large format printing store (Fedex, UPS Store, etc) for about $50-70/copy.

How are these plans guaranteed?

If the plan you purchased does not work out for any reason, we will exchange for a different plan for free. (limit one use per customer)

Because we design 100% of our house plans in-house, we are the only house plan design company that offers the benefit of a price guarantee!

Can I purchase the plans now and pay for Modifications, CAD files or Prints later?

Yes, no problem. 

You can always add any of our additional services after the fact and we will make sure it gets to you.

What is the finished area and unfinished area?

In short, the finished area is shaded blue/gray on the plans and the unfinished area is beige.

The finished area always includes all enclosed living spaces, except for bonus rooms or attics. 

The unfinished area includes, garages, porches, attics and bonus rooms. 

If selected, basement square footage is not included in the finished area.

Can I change the materials?

Yes! 

The exterior and interior materials shown are just one possible option you can choose. 

In our construction drawings, the material is always annotated 'as specified by owner' so you are not locked into a specific material or pattern. 

All materials are up to you, the owner, to pick out and specify to your contractor.
