This home plan has a modern Craftsman exterior that is distinctively appealing.


Double doors open into the living space where the great room, dining room, and kitchen blend together. Retreating glass doors present rear views and expand living outdoors seamlessly. This home plan’s kitchen layout promotes easy work flow and casual entertaining, and the nearby mud and utility rooms are tucked away near the garage.

Conceptual design #1272 is a modernized design based on The Penland #178. This floor plans is perfect for the modern generation that is environmentally conscious and building green. It features very open living areas and a low roof pitch. Two bedrooms share a Jack-&-Jill bathroom while the master is on the other side with a luxurious bath.

    put that kitchen where the dining room is so there is a view of the front. Bring the Foyer down to the same line as the bedroom and dining room over to where the kitchen was with view of the front – garage moves over to where the tub was (not needed) to make room – keep the front one consecutive line. Get rid of the e-space and make it a sitting area

      Hi Justin, I’m afraid we have not received any completed photos of The Clearlake yet. If any come in, we’ll post them to our website and share them on social media.

    Nice. From my point of view, this is either a 2nd home, an empty nester home, or a retirement home. Glad to see that a few more contemporary designs are being added to your collection of plans.

  3. Leilani Bolenbaugh on

    I love this design! It would be great with a lower level living space and a little bit bigger living space upstairs. Do you have any idea when this plan will be ready? We live in Montana and are looking to start building in the next couple of months.

    looking for side and rear elevations for this? we have a golf course and pond view (rear and side) and this plan looks like it would work well for us with a few little changes. do need to see back and sides though.

    • Echo on

      Hello Kim! We are still in the design process on this plan so we do not have side elevations available at this time. The plan is scheduled for release in October and we will have much more plan information available including front, rear, and side elevations that you can download from our website. I will notify you when design #1272 is complete!

        Yay! I’ll look forward to that. I definitely want revisions to kitchen and have laid it out in my little 3d home architect software. About how long would it take to make revisions to the floorplan and do I need to wait until release in october to request the modifications? I’ll assume that the release in october is due to someone pushing this up in the queue by requesting the plan. Just trying to figure out a realistic date we could have a set of modified plans. Thanks again for your reply,

        • Echo on

          Hi Kim, The modifications will take approximately 4-6 weeks after the plan is released. You can go ahead and submit your modification request now and start consultation with our designer! And if you have a sketch that you want to submit, email that to [email protected] after submitting the online form. We can send that to the designer with your written request.

    Swap the Jack and Jill with the walk in closets for those bedrooms. That bump out on the side of the house will be hotter in the summer and colder in the winter. Nobody wants that when they’re showering.

    Could you tell me if the screened porch is part of the 2100+ square feet? Would like to see e-space become a pantry, the storage space in garage be both mud and utility/laundry room, and a larger foyer. I like laundry behind closed doors. Also would love to see rear view.

  7. Lynn on

    LOVE,LOVE this house plan! I like the layout and size and will want to add a small living space and a single garage at basement level. I would add a sink in the laundry room as well. Thanks for the modern Craftsman feel!

  8. Chuck Southerland on

    This plan is very close. We are building on a steep river bank and want a screen porch as well as a porch with lots of windows that is heated and cooled. We want to exit that porch from the master bedroom as well as the great room. We don’t want steps in the rear from the top level to ground, but we are considering a smaller lower level game room with mechanical room. We also need a larger garage, three garage doors with extra space.

  9. Fred Wood on

    I would to see this plan at #2400 sq ft. Just make the kitchen, master, utility and master larger. Super plan

  10. Lynette Gaitan on

    Practically perfect in every way! Seriously, the layout is exactly what I have been looking for. Everything is always too big for empty nesters. We want under 2000 square ft, this is just a bit too large but perfect in every other way. Can’t wait until it’s finished.

    Oh and name it The Buckley. I have seen other companies with the other names options. Make this special, because it is!

  11. Carolyn Gilbertson on

    Overall I really like this plan because it has everything we’re looking for as we downsize as we move into the empty nest era. I would really like a window in the laundry room and possibly combine it with the mud room. I would also like a message center area in the laundry/mud room. I would like to see more details of the outside space.

  12. Ginger on

    i like the contemporary feel. Agree, I’d like to see a version with a lower level and perhaps a slightly great room/ kitchen area. Also an option for a study trim instead of a ‘Jack and Jill.’ I actually really like the separate mud room from the utility. That’s hard to find. Definitely Pin-worthy – thanks! (Vote for Denver)

  13. Kel on

    Love this plan! Secondary bedrooms are a good size.(bigger than most) And share a bathroom. Like the idea of a half bath for guests. Open living, dining, kitchen is great. But I agree with Brian kitchen needs to be bigger and utility needs to shift to the side of the house, with a covered porch. Is this plan going to be available with a basement ?

  14. Brian on

    Great layout. I would love to see a slightly larger version. The living, dining, and kitchen areas are a bit small for entertaining. The utility should exit to the side of the house if possible. Also, a deeper foyer would be nice.

    I know I’m being critical, but this design has a lot of potential.
