Floor Plan Description:

The Monterey is a gorgeous, functional house plan to combines all the best architectural features into this roomy floor plan. 

Stepping off the front porch into the wide, welcoming stair foyer, you have immediate access to the roomy living room on your right through dual portals with built-in architectural bookshelves and transom windows above the door frames. The living room features a fireplace and large windows looking towards both the front and back yard. 

Heading further down the foyer hallway there's a conveniently located half bathroom and basement stair access (optional). The hallway ends at the gorgeous lofted kitchen and dining room. The dining area features a high ceiling with a wall full of windows and doors out to the East patio, perfect for dining al fresco. The beautiful modern kitchen leads to the rear mud room which features access to the walk-in pantry, 2-car garage, back yard and a stair up to an un-finished bonus loft space above the garage. This huge space could be the perfect ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit), home office, studio, workshop, fitness area or more!

Heading back to the foyer and branching off to the West wing, the huge primary bed suite awaits! This bed suite has it all with its 3 closets, built-in window seating, custom en-suite bathroom and a private porch & outdoor fireplace.

Finally, stepping upstairs, the stair splits at the top to offer private access to each of the secondary bedrooms. To the left you have a laundry closet before you enter the bedroom. This cozy dormered room features dual closets and a private seating area as well as access to a shared Jack & Jill bathroom, which is well laid out to maintain privacy with a closable partition between the shared washroom and toilet/shower room. On the other side of this floor a flex space leads into the last bedroom which mirrors the first with its closets and dormers.

Feel free to contact us (chat link at bottom right) with any further clarifications or breakdowns for square footage.

How do the Foundation Options Work?

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! 

For basement plans, the staircase access is 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 space. We're happy to help you layout a custom basement floor plan using our flat rate customization service. 

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). StructuralPlans is our preferred partner for all structural engineering services required. Head over to to order your structural plans today.

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.

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

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

Can I change the materials?

The exterior and interior materials shown are shown for visualization purposes only. 

In our construction drawings, the material, finishes and appliances are '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.  

What kind of modifications can be made?

Anything! We offer a flat rate modification service for only $400. 

Some examples of common edits are:

  • Plan flipping/reversal
  • Moving interior / exterior walls
  • Moving or resizing doors or windows
  • Modifying a kitchen or bathroom layout
  • Adding plan notes or details
  • Changing façade details
  • Changing roof pitch
  • Adding accessibility features, like ramps, lifts or elevators
  • Changing exterior wall construction (2x4)
  • Basement layout or walk-out design

Feel free to reach out to us with your proposed edits before purchasing so that we can confirm feasibility.

What kind of wall and roof framing?

All stock plan exterior walls, interior bearing walls and interior chase walls are designed with 2x6 construction. All other walls are 2x4 by default. 

Wall framing can be modified as part of our flat rate modification process


The roof can be framed either as a truss or a stick-frame depending on the specific plan and your local live loads. Consult with your contractor to determine the best approach for your site and market.
