    There is much to like about this plan. Could you fit in an elevator to the second floor? I do think a half bath would be a good addition. I like having a window over the kitchen sink.

  2. Candice on

    There are a few changes I would make.

    1. I would want the bonus space an in-law suite with full bath and walk in closet with seperate living space with kitchenette and bedroom with closet.

    2. I would move the laundry room over to bedroom on the far right side expanding it into a family studio space keep the closet and connection to the bathroom but remove the sink and make hanging space to hang clothes after ironing. The mudroom bench will be moved to the wall on the right of the garage door (closet on the left bench on the right) then take the old laundry room and make it a walk in pantry with upright deep freeze. If possible a barn door style opening.

    3. The pantry will still be a pantry but climate controlled seperate for long term food storage like home canned and preserved foods and roots like potatoes and carotts.

    4. The study will have french doors to the foyer.

    We work from home and we are urban gardeners who put out and up a big harvest.

  3. Barbara on

    Love this plan! For my personal preference, I would flip flop the kitchen and dining room locations, and make the screened porch a keeping room. I’d keep everything else pretty much as you’ve designed it. Great layout, and the exterior elevations are lovely.

  4. Robin on

    I would add a window to the pantry. We like to make our working style pantries with lots of outlets and counters/drawers. Would make the garage extra deep for larger/longer vehicles

  5. Andrea on

    Loving this variation of the Chesnee, one of my top-5 DAG plans. The Birchwood plan and all its derivations have really turned out to be a hit.

    This plan REALLY needs a half-bath near the kitchen and garage entrance. Especially a plan of this size and with all the baths anywhere near the rear entrance being located inside the bedrooms without any hallway access to any of them. Also, I think the full bath next to the study should be turned into a half-bath, with the footage currently occupied by the tub and the adjacent closet being incorporated into the study, maybe make that a niche for a desk or a mini-office so the rest of the space would be free for seating so that the study could function as a small second living area.

    My personal preference is for true one-level living, so I would eliminate the stairway (and the bonus rooms), which means I would push the laundry room to where the back stairs are now, opening up plenty of space for the added half-bath and to expand the mudroom space.

    I would also get rid of the sitting area for the master suite.

    Love that you continue to refine the original Birchwood concept to try to accommodate a wide variety of lifestyles. It is this kind of thing that sets you apart from many others.


      I would turn this into a 2 master plan on opposite sides of the home. No need for 5 bedrooms 4 is good and the 2 other bedrooms could actually be placed in a basement level giving them each a bathroom. There would also need to be a half bath near the front door for guests. Elevate the bonus room upstairs by 1 or 2 steps with a barn door closure. Laundry room needs upper and lower cabinets as well as open shelving with a wash sink and a place to hang wet clothes. Extra wide foyer and hallways and doorways that can accommodate a wheelchair or scooter. No need for tub in either of two master baths, extra large tiled shower with seating with his and hers sink areas. Kitchen area should have a custom vent hood and cooktop but not in Island. Extra large island with seating for at least 4 with double wall ovens. I like pillars separating dining room and foyer. Back covered patio should be extended to include outdoor kitchen and fireplace with ceiling fans. But a beautiful plan nonetheless.

  6. Toni Hodgins on

    Great plan! My only suggestion would be to somehow reconfigure the back bathroom so it was accessible from the screened porch.

  7. Scott Perkins on

    This plan is getting closer to what we are looking for — would want a foyer closet and a linen closet closer to the master. Also would really desire a mud room and would have to incorporate basement stairs as a basement is a must in Central Illinois. Is there a way to bring the garage further to the right and incorporate either a mud room or a possible office between the dining room and garage? Does the 3378 square feet include the square footage in the bonus room as there is no breakdown between main level and bonus room?

  8. Lori Pekala on

    Do you have an approximate date for when the Roseburg plan will be finalized and available for purchase? Also, is the layout shown on this page what the final floor plan will actually look like, or are there likely still more modifications to be made?

  9. Paul on

    Really like the Birchwood concept and the variants; however, do not see them being wheelchair friendly. Specifically 48 inch hallways and 36 inch doors. Bonus Room would be much better if it had a straight stairway. Saw where one was built in NJ that had a side entrance which is nice, since garage area is the first thing they see as they park their car before having choice of entering through front door or just going through garage door as family currently does. Will study all of them to determine which will be easiest to modify

  10. Jackie on

    I really like one big dining space for our family and a window over the kitchen sink to keep an eye on the outside world. The only modification I would ask of this plan is figuring out how to put a window to the outside in the laundry room. I need to see the kids at all times and Lord knows I spend A LOT of time in the kitchen and laundry room.

  11. Dena Harden on

    This plan is nice but I would have made the screened in porch a second living area and screened in the bigger porch. Also make all the bedrooms a little bigger. The 2 bonus rooms are great.

  12. Tamara F on

    Great design, but appears to be missing coat closet at front foyer. Love the amount of closets everywhere else. I too am from Canada and would remove the loft stairs and have them go to basement instead. A version of this house minus a bedroom of about 2400-2800 sqft would be good too.

  13. Nicole on

    After years of looking through hundreds of house plans, we’ve finally found the perfect one! This plan is amazing and we will definately be ordering it when available. The only changes I would make would be to add basement stairs (we live in Canada and have to have basements); take out the sitting room to the Master; adding a bathroom in the bonus room; and putting the range on an inside wall of the kitchen. Very beautiful plan!!

  14. Nathan O on

    I love this plan (and several others of yours). On the whole, this plan has what I’m looking for and can’t wait for it to become available. I think opening the wall in the bonus room directly above the laundry space so that you could look down into the kitchen or across to the family room would be a nice feature. But, I don’t know if the ceiling heights in those room would allow for that kind of sight line. I would love to have a large loft there. This plan is fantastic as it is.

  15. EGKelly on

    I love this plan! I personally would move the kitchen sink to the window and the stove to one of the walls…leaving my islands free with the exception of maybe a hand washing sink. Otherwise, it’s perfect for my family!

  16. Sam on

    It’s almost perfect! I hate that it doesn’t have a mudroom. I loved in a previous plan you are working on how the mudroom was connected to the laundry room. I would also get rid of the screened porch and have the outdoor living area and patio. I love where the study\ guestroom is locared, close to the master; however, I would like a half bath there instead of the full bath. I would need to remove the third bedroom in the back to get the square footage down and prefer the vaulted ceilings in at least the living room. This plan is really close to what I have been searching for.

  17. Amy Gregorie on

    Hello! I absolutely love this house plan; I have looked at hundreds. We aren’t going to build for about a year, but I will definitely be contacting you for complete plans and modifications. Best, Amy

  18. Melanie on

    I love this plan. My main concern is the placement of the dishwasher in comparison with the other cupboard space. I like having my dishwasher close to the area where you would store your plates and cups. Would there be enough cupboard space near the dishwasher when the island is so far away from the other cupboards?

  19. Rachel on

    Any updates on when this will be available for purchase? I agree about using some of the utility room to make the drop zone a little bigger. Also, adding a basement stair option. But this house is pretty awesome!!:)

  20. Andrew on

    This is perfect for our family of 5! The jack and Jill bath is great, as well as having three bedrooms in one area. This frees the study for its intended purpose. Would eliminate master sitting area, and build a pergola in its place. Would also add another two car garage which would extend from the windowless wall of the side of the house the two adjacent bedrooms are on. Would create additional roofing cost, but well worth it. There is still the option for sectional sliding windows, and large 4-pane sliding doors at exit to back porch. Can’t wait till it is available for purchase!

  21. Heather on

    Hi there! I love this plan.. I’d only make a few changes for myself. BUT with 5 children this house is perfect! Does the sq footage include the bonus room or is that on top of the 3260 sq ft #?


  22. Paula Gonzales on

    I absolutely love this plan! My parents used to design and build their own houses so I have some pretty high standards. In more than ten years of looking, this is the very first plan that I’ve found that I wouldn’t heavily modify! Is it available for purchase?

  23. Julie on

    I love this one! I have a similar plan of your pinned, but I really want 3 bedrooms grouped together for my three daughters. My mods would be: basement stair option, expanded drop zone (your designers must think somewhere warmer than where I live, I could easily give up a little laundry room to make that happen), and something other than the e-space altogether (maybe a wet bar or just additional kitchen storage), all minor things. My concerns would be awkward dining column placement in relation to the kitchen bar and lack of guest closet near the front door, though for my personal usage of the house it would be just a minor issue.
