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.

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!

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 [email protected]

    We are starting a new construction, love that double window above the kitchen sink, what size is it and what type of windows did you use. That’s a debate for us. Thanks

    Hello, I was just wondering if any of you that were in the process of building the primrose had any photos to share. My husband and I are going to start building it this fall. I am interested in seeing any exterior photos with brick/vinyl etc… for ideas. Thank you!

    We will be building the Primrose in Aiken, SC. The lot is in the process of being cleared, so we’re in the very early stages. We do plan to upload for “Rendering to Reality” as we progress.

    In the mean time, is there a way that we can communicate with others who are building this plan (i.e. Ed & Mary) who may be able to offer helpful observations / insights as we all proceed simultaeously?

    Thank you…we are excited about building and love the plan.

      Carl… Have a question if you are willing to share this info. I live in North Carolina & was wondering an approximation of the cost to build the Primrose cause I feel the costs would be similiar. I love this plan and have have pretty much decided on it.

        Patti –

        I’d be glad to share what info we have thus far. We are still getting some quotes in so we don’t have the following costs accounted for yet: cabinets, vanities, countertops, master bath tile, lighting fixtures and appliances. Currently, we are at $114 sq. ft. for the house (we purchased the lot separately). Note that we are building on a crawl space due to a gentle slope on our lot.

        Status wise, our lot (just under 1 acre) has been cleared and graded, foundation to begin within a week or so.

    Hey! My family has also started the process of building the Primrose. It should be completed in September and we are super excited. However, I was wondering your thoughts on putting in a kitchen island instead of having the wrap around cabinets in the kitchen? I hopes that makes sense. And also, if you had any recommendations for my family from your experience building? Thank you so much!

      Hi Hannah! That’s exciting, September will be here before we now it! An island would work well in that space if you would prefer that over the angled peninsula.

    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
