Customer Reviews of this Detroit House Plans.com Home Design:
It fit our needs to a tee...
Our daughter and son-in-law wanted our 2800 sq. ft. existing home and we wanted to down size. So we sold them our existing home and built our new home on an adjacent property. I did not want to go through the trouble of designing the new house so I went online and found your website. We spent a couple of days looking at your different house plans and found the one we bought. It fit our needs to a tee with only a few modifications. The house is maintenance free with white vinyl siding and an aluminum face and vinyl soffits and vinyl double hung therma pane windows, and we love it!
We love our home from this designer...and there is no place I would rather be!
We were ready to build our second house, our first one being a large 3,200 sq. ft. steel frame home. We wanted something that would be just the right size when our kids moved out, 2,000-1,800 sq. ft. ...not too big, but big enough to entertain, and for two teenagers to hang out with their friends! I looked thru tons of books and online till I found this plan. Having two teenagers, I wanted something with three bathrooms. I also wanted something with good use of space. The open floor plan is amazing. We love having the living area, kitchen, and dining area as one big open space...it really brings the whole family together! We love our home from this designer...there is no place I would rather be!

This is a great open plan with split-bedroom layout. The master suite has a trayed ceiling, large closet for him and her, jet tub, over-sized shower, and large vanity next to her closet. Enjoy the vaulted ceiling, gas logs, and built-ins in the great room. All bedrooms feature walk-in closets with their own private bath. Note that Bedroom 2 could be used as an “In-law suite”. A “Flex Space” is provided for uses such as an office/media center/half bath/hobby room/or winter-wear closet. The kitchen is large with an over-sized bar. The plan has a covered front porch, screen porch, and patio for small groups to gather. Garage is nearly 26 feet deep to provide more space than is normal for parking and open storage. This house is sized right to fulfill the needs of new couples, families with children, and empty-nesters that may need to take care of an elderly family member. A very versatile plan and easy to build!

It was a WONDERFUL experience, and I can't say enough good about the house plans!
It all started with the beautiful lot we bought. The three acre lot had a lot of character. There was a hill on one side and it was a corner lot. Next came the house plans. We knew that we wanted to build a ranch house. We looked at a lot of house plans, and when I found this plan, I had alot of questions. The designer's team helped me every step of the way, and they were very nice and easy to work with. I would recommend them to everyone and if I ever were to build again I would use them in a heart beat. I love my home. My top 3 favorite features of my house include: 1.)I love my 3-way fireplace. You can see it from so many areas in the house. You can see it from the dinning room, kitchen and the greatroom. Its a great feature that helps divide the rooms instead of a wall. 2.) I love my walk-out basement with the french doors and the two full windows. The light that comes into the windows and doors are wonderful they really brighten up the basement, and finally 3.) I love the outside of my house which is all stone, brick, shake and siding... no wood, no maintenance. We did make some changes to the original floor plan. House Plan Gallery made it so easy and very inexpensive. When I did do the changes, they were done right and quick. I also had no problems with the city on my house plans. Everything was done right and everything was up to code. Everyone that worked on the house had no problems with the blue prints.
We upgraded the ceiling by switching to 9ft. ceilings throughout the whole house. We made the master bedroom a cathedral ceiling and we did the same in the greatroom. In our dining area we did a beautiful tray ceiling with rope lighting. We wanted our greatroom to be bigger so we took out the foyer and extended the greatroom into that area. The guys at this company were definitely "on their game" when they realized that changes in the roof had to be made because of the changes in the greatroom. On the right side of the house we took out the three bathrooms and only went with one. The original plan in the master bedroom had three doors. One coming in the bedroom, the closet door and the bathroom door. We eliminated the closet door. You go through the masterbath to get in the closet and can get to his and her closets. Its works out great. If I'm getting ready for work and Tom's sleeping, I can close the door and get totally ready and not bother him. When you walk into the house from the garage there is a flex space that is on the origal floor plan. The change we made there was to take that out and put a half bathroom, it works out great. If Tom's working in the garage or we have a party out side, Tom or our guest don't have to use the masterbath room or walk across to the other side of the house. We also bumped out the french doors that come off the dining room. We put bay windows so when the french doors opened they would not interfere with the table. Our 2 favorite and most special changes we love are the three way fire place that helps divide the great room and dinning area, and the walk out basement with two full windows and french doors. So the house looks like a ranch from some angles but from others, it looks two story. Now check this out, the outside is gorgeous. We used stone, brick, shake and siding in the house. A lot going on, but it flows. No wood is on the outside, we didn't want anything we had to do maintenance on every year or every other year. We also decided to use foam insulation. It comes out of a machine and then swells up in the wall cavity and you then shave the extra foam off. Our basement called, at first for 10 poles. We reconstructed the floor joists and now we have only 2 in the basement. The basement floor we used stamped concrete. We also used a Geothermal system to heat and cool our house. I'm so proud of my house; I thank everyone that made this a great experience. My husband was the general contractor, he did it all, I give all the credit to him. I was very satisfied with the outcome. I would be happy to recommend anyone interested in building a new home to work with these guys. It was a WONDERFUL experience, and I can't say enough good about the house plans!
We would recommend this designer without reservation!
This designer has been a pleasure to work with on designing the plans for our new home. They have been available to answer any and all questions that my wife and I have had. Stephen made several relevant suggestions to us to help us through this process. My wife and I are contracting our house ourselves and the team at House Plan Gallery has been there to help direct us on each phase. We did make several modifications to the original plan we selected and this company was ready willing and able to make it happen. We would recommend this designer without reservation!
The team at this designer was a pleasure to work with, and we can't wait to move in!
We were so happy to have found this design. It met all of our needs and has absolutely no wasted space. We have already started the building process and its coming along great. The team at this designer was a pleasure to work with, and we can't wait to move in!
The property has been in his family for five generations, so we wanted to pick the perfect plan for the farm. Luckily, we found that plan at this site.
We are newly married and have a new baby. Our rental house was small and we needed more space. We really like the fact that the kitchen and dining are open to the living room. Also, the master is on the opposite side of the house from the kids rooms. After several years of renting, we decided to build on my husband's family property. The property has been in his family for five generations, so we wanted to pick the perfect plan for the farm. Luckily, we found that plan with this designer. The house is underway and we look forward to spending our lives in our new home. Thank You!
Just wanted to let you know this house is awesome!
I just wanted to say that my husband and I purchased this house plan a year and a half ago. We are finally moved in - and we love it a lot. It is an excellent house plan with an awesome great room.
The cathedral ceiling really makes the great room. We decided not to build the book shelves on each side of the entertainment center, but it gives great spacious appeal. We also bricked our home using white brick with burgundy shutters. We have had great compliments with our house. Just wanted to let you know this house is awesome!
