Home Plan 1504 | Compact Cottage

The Dermot house plan 1504 is now available!

This modern cottage mixes Craftsman elements for a warm and welcoming facade. A front-entry garage and narrow width makes this plan a versatile choice for countless lot sizes. The foyer entry offers a coat closet and opens directly into the great room. Windows frame the fireplace and a vaulted ceiling adds vertical space while a clerestory window brings in even more light and double doors open to a rear porch. The kitchen features a bar counter that looks out to the great room and the U-shape counter overlooks the dining room. A niche and bay window highlight this spacious dining area.

What to Consider Before Hiring A General Contractor

Building a new home requires that you find the right home plan and the right team to build the home.

That team will be led by a general contractor. Taking time to plan when hiring a general contractor will help ensure you get a good fit. Here are some hiring-a-contractor tips that will guide you in finding the right one.

1. Start With References

Asking for recommendations will help you start the search, but look for recommendations from people who have worked with a contractor. Has someone you know recently built a home or done a major remodeling project? Talk to this person about his or her experience. If he or she had a positive experience with a contractor, add that contractor to your list of people to call. Starting with vetted professionals endorsed by those you trust should cut your research time significantly.
