This compact Craftsman design is economical to build with its uncomplicated footprint and lowered roofline. Interesting angles are mirrored in the kitchen bar and dining room columns, tying the living spaces together in the open floor plan. A cathedral ceiling runs from the great room to the oversized screen porch creating a feeling of spaciousness, and the mud and utility rooms at the garage entrance provide storage and organization space unseen from the common areas.


The Primrose is nearly completed, with a target date of February 1st!

The brick-and-stone exterior is complete.

Notes from the Builder:

Donny DeMarie – President, Homes by DHR of Oklahoma, LLC 

We will be visiting OKC, and Shawnee this weekend to make our final selections for brick, stone, flooring, tile, lighting, and so much more. We are so excited for you to see this new plan. The Primrose incorporates all the great features that everyone has been asking for: BIG Pantry, Large Closets, Expanded Family Room, Mud Room, Etc…And, we did it all in 2,000 SF. You are going to love it!

Things are moving fast again at American Country Estates. Our new model, Primrose, is in the ground and framing should complete this week. We just ordered windows and we selected low-e vinyl windows with argon gas for added efficiency. The roof should start this week, and we are using OCF Oakridge shingles in the Brownwood color/finish. I’ve been pushing for an awesome “brown” house for sometime!

More progress photography coming soon!

Building a Donald Gardner design? We would love to feature the progress in our Rendering to Reality series. Contact us at 1-800-388-7580 or email us at info@dongardner.com

    I am currently in the midst of building this house with a few little tweeks. Making it out of block and have 9′ 6″ ceilings. Currently underway just waiting on trusses. Will post photos if possible

    We will be building the Primrose in the near future. We tweeted the porch/living room area a bit and I’d like to describe that change to you, and ask if you have seen this done before, or, if you have any photos/floor plans that show what we did. I’m asking because there is still time to keep it as original, also I have difficulty envisioning. Hope I can explain this well enough below:
    1. We moved the inside porch wall back 3 feet, AND…….
    2. ……instead of french doors between porch and living room, it will be open, (NO door there), with an arch above to walk through into heated glassed in porch/screen porch open to deep woods.
    3. My question also is, will this look like TWO living rooms??? (I wanted it to be a “get-away area” for reading, or for girlfriends while my hubby and men are in living room watching tv
    4. Any input? THANK YOU SO MUCH! Mary
