    Hello, Can anyone tell me if a home is built yet using this plan?
    I would love seeing one, or any similar layout of Don Gardner plan.
    I live in Central NJ.

      Hi Deborah, this plan was just added to our portfolio and we have not received any information about where it’s being built or any photos at this time. The Bookworth 1027 is a similar design and we have an exterior photo on our website. Here are builders who have reported building this design. Please let us know if you have other questions – 1-800-388-7580 or [email protected].

      Hi Debbie! This floor plan is really unique to our portfolio. We don’t have a similar floor plan around 3000 sq ft. but we do offer modification services so you could add square footage to this design. Contact our customer service team to discuss the specific criteria that you are looking for and they may be able to assist you further with a plan search – 1-800-388-7580 or [email protected].

    I think the kitchen is fine there for people who like that arrangement and if you don’t like the view of the kitchen at front entry then that doorway possibly change to pocket/swing door or no door at all and more cabinets. My wife would definitely like the e-space near the view and being a cooking enthusiast the location in the kitchen is great. Moving the kitchen to the back will lessen the room for the kitchen due to the proximity of back hallway. Pros and cons on flipping mud and utility as you would need to extend the mud room by going with porch extended out from building and widen a bit for machines/clearance within laundry. Entry is pretty good at almost 6′ deep and not stealing from the great room space

    Love the layout however the foyer depth seems a little shallow . Would prefer a longer (deeper) foyer leading into the family room. Love the kitchen on the front with the large window. Like the dining at the rear because its not the typical dining room on the right or left soon as you enter the house. Also like the single dining area area concept. Great floor plan, good job!

    Hi, can you flip the garage, mud and utility room to the front of the house and put the bedrooms on the back? I love this layout but we have to put the garage on the front due to the layout of the land.

    I agree with Kelly’s comments. It would make the plan more functional. I love the exterior and size but need the kitchen more open to the living space. Looking forward to seeing the final product. Keep me posted.

    I really like this design with the garage at the back; it’s perfect for a corner lot, or a lot with lane access. I also love the kitchen at the the front of the house, and I would NOT want to switch with the dining area. The dining area flows seamlessly into the great room, which is perfect for people who like to entertain (as we do). It also allows for a spacious kitchen, which is a real plus for entertaining…there is room for an island and a large fridge and wall ovens for example. The kitchen could easily be designed so that the pots and pans are not the first thing one sees when entering the house, as another reviewer remarked. I do however agree with Kelly’s suggestion to switch the mudroom and utility locations.

    I agree with Thomas. Switch kitchen and dining room. Also place the laundry where the mud room and porch are. Build a covered porch on the outside. Now make the (old) laundry room a drop zone with bench and cubbies , and a door to the basement since the stairwell is already there. Also extend the second bathroom so you can have two sinks.

  8. Thomas V Lavin on

    Reverse the kitchen and dining room so that the first thing you see when you enter is the dining table and not the pots, pans etc cooking on the stove

    Does the 1,914 Sq. Ft. include the upstairs bonus room? If not, what is the total Sq. Ft. including the bonus room.
