Growth in Housing Starts Drives Home Plan Innovation at Donald A. Gardner Architects

Busy lifestyles of modern homeowners inspire firm’s new home plan concepts.

Don Gardner has anticipated this trend with some of its newest home designs, especially its small, country and craftsman home plans.

House Plans on the Drawing Board - Plan #1349

House Plans on the Drawing Board is pleased to present this hillside walkout design that was originally derived from the Newcastle Plan #994 and our Conceptual Design #1342.  The bedroom and bathroom have been relocated to the lower level, along with an added family room/theater. The second floor and bonus room have been eliminated, while unfinished space on the lower level provides storage and a place for HVAC. On the main floor, the kitchen features an angled peninsula with bar seating, and the single dining area has high windows, making room for a buffet cabinet. Sun tunnels bring light into interior spaces, and outdoor entertaining is easy with covered and screen porches in the rear.
