This two-story farmhouse has a signature feature that makes it feel extra open—a balcony on the second story overlooks the vaulted-ceilings great room on the main level. Between it’s open concept and no wasted space, this floor plan is perfect for a young family or empty nesters. And there’s a bonus room above the garage for extra space.
Floor plans are available for sale as PDF and CAD (.dmg format) files. The CAD set makes it easy to send the file directly to your architect so they can add notes and details required by the local building department.
Either set of plans will require the purchaser to engage a local architect and structural engineer to make site-specific modifications to the plans based on soil condition and local building codes, prior to requesting a permit. Having the CAD file (in option 2), saves the architect money and time.
