Customer Reviews of this Detroit House Plans.com Home Design:
Our builder says he had more compliments on this home than any home he has ever contracted!
My name is Sylvia, my husband is Larry. We live in Griffin, Georgia. We built our home two years ago this June. We love it. Iíll try to explain some of the things about the house along with pictures. I LOVE MY HOUSE. My husband and I are living in our sixth new home. When deciding to build this house we were looking for something that would fit our needs, without getting into a large home, because itís just the two of us. We like the look of the craftsman style, although we made a few changes on the plans inside and on the outside. Changing these fit our need a little better. We opened the flex room, adding five large posts instead of keeping the walls. This space, now open, flows into the great room/den. We put the fireplace/gas logs on the wall area backing the hall, also adding bookcases next to the fireplace. We then put windows where the fireplace was shown on the plans. This makes a great view across our covered screened porch, deck, and yard and woods. In the kitchen, we kept the bar on the same level as the counter top; this opens up into the breakfast room. We added large windows in the breakfast room where it called for a door to the covered porch. We put the door in the great room on a wall along the side of two large windows. The master bedroom is great. We painted it a beautiful suede leather brown with white trim, this color flows into the master bath where we have a large walk-in shower. Pictures will hopefully show you the changes. Several reasons for choosing this floor plan were so we could make a few changes, making it our own. We looked at book after book, and plan after plan before choosing. But, this was the right choice for us. Our builder says he had more compliments on this home than any home he has ever contracted. Come for a visit. Iíll be happy to show you our home.

The great room includes gas logs, a trayed ceiling, and beautiful views to the covered rear porch beyond.

The expansive garage provides plenty of room for oversized trucks and SUV's and also includes a large storage area. The bonus room provides space for future expansion or for additional storage.

Thank you for making our home building experience the very best it could ever be!
Seven months ago, I purchased these plans for my dream home online. We were ready to move from the city and build something for our active family. We lived in a suburban track home for 13 years before deciding to build in the country. After several months of pouring over floor plans, I was able to narrow it down to just this one. We bought an acre of land in the country and proceeded to build on our lot. I told everyone that I wanted to enjoy the experience of building our home, and I truly did. I had so much fun picking everything from the floor plan to fixtures, granite and ceiling fans. Some of my favorite features of this plan are that there is absolutely no wasted space. I also love my closets, pantry and porches. I also like the breakfast bar. It is definitely my dream home. The house plan that I chose is a one-story house, four bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths with a game room over the garage. We chose to build it with brick and a touch of Austin limestone. The inside is lovely in shades of green, tan and brown. Everyone who visits says they feel right at home the second they enter. We had our first family get-together on Easter weekend, and I can't tell you how wonderful it was having a home like this to share with our family and friends. After dining inside, we all moved into the yard and enjoyed watching the little ones hunt Easter eggs in the backyard. Thank you for making our home building experience the very best it could ever be!
The house and its design brings rave reviews from everyone...
We had a great experience with your company, website, plans and the people who helped us. We are about 3 weeks out from completion with the cabinets and painting on our new home being completed this week. The house and its design brings rave reviews from everyone. It sits on an acre of land that gently slopes to a wild type habitat with a small creek just off the property. We used native limestone (chopped) and used a 30 year matching shingle. The house and setting are really great. Thanks to you and all your wonderful people.
I wish with everything in me that there wasn't a reason for this new house...
Before anything else, you should know that I wish with everything in me that there wasn't a reason for this new house. Four and a half years ago my wife and I were leading an ideal life. We were just starting to relax in our retirement and taking great joy from watching our four son's families grow. But a head-on collision changed everything. It was one of my oldest sons, one of my twins. For a while we didn't believe he'd survive. And in a way, my Chris, my son I'd loved for 43 years, didn't. Chris is 48 now. He's paralyzed on his left side and suffers from extensive brain damage. He requires total care, which his Mother and I give round the clock. His medical condition is the reason for our new house. Our old home place was very secluded; which at one time we loved. But since Chris has frequent seizures, we need an ambulance to be able to find us fast. Also, we need to be closer to his doctors and physical therapist whom he sees three times a week. The most imperative need for building, though, is that everything must be handicap accessible. I'm 70 and my wife, Betty, is 68 years old. So the idea of not having to fight his chair through doorways or squeeze down halls is quite appealing. And we're looking forward to the handicap bathroom like kids look forward to Christmas! I LOVE the large rooms in this home design and the layout is absolutely perfect for our needs with no wasted space... While I continue to pray my child will be made whole again and we wouldn't NEED this new house; it will be a great blessing and we are eager for the relief it will bring to our lives. This is a great house for our family's needs and we would definately recommend this designer's home designs to anyone...
You had the plan that included everything I was looking for!
I just got started on building my home. Wednesday they poured the wall and crawl space for the house. I am very excited about my new home. I had searched the internet looking for a home to build, and you had the plan that included everything I was looking for. I had my home modified by this designer to add a basement, and your company did a wonderful job on my basement plans and I am very pleased with all modifications made. I am excited about completing my dream home. Thank you so much making my dreams come true!
The plans were easy to read, detailed, and the layout was very practical with no wasted space?
We are very happy with our house plans from this designer. We literally viewed thousands of houseplans over several years and fell in love with the one we are building from them. The plans were easy to read, detailed, and the layout was very practical with no wasted space. We would highly recommend this designer to anyone looking for their next house plans!
It was a wonderful experience and we would heartily recommend your company and home plans to anyone out there!
Our story is one that is 20 years in the making. We relocated to Tennessee and purchased our first home which was approximately 1300 sq. feet. While this was adequate for my wife and I, we knew that eventually we would want to build something to suit our particular needs and lifestyle. Over the years, we put together lists of likes and dislikes. We also spent a lot of time touring homes, looking at house plan magazines and online sites, as well as studying local housing designs and trends. When considering house plans and designs, we always kept in mind our needs as a growing/changing family. Our first home was a cookie-cutter, two story, Cape Cod style, with the master on the first floor and the others on the second floor. We quickly realized the inconvenience and safety concerns of this design after our first child was born. When we had our second child, our desire to find a more family-friendly house plan became our number one priority. Fortunately for us, the website was one of the first sites we accessed. We found the website extremely easy to use and the search options gave us the opportunity to look for the specific features we were hoping to find. We found that with a certain plan. This particular house plan offered one-level living with zoned bedrooms which provided optimal living for our diverse schedules. We were very impressed with each roomís square footage. The extra bedrooms have ample living and closet space. The master suite is a wonderful retreat since it is located away from the primary living area of the home. The master bathroom is extremely spacious with a jetted tub and walk-in tiled shower. There are his and her separate vanities offering much storage and counter space. Additionally, the two separate walk-in closets provide all of the storage and hanging room anyone would ever need. The kitchen was wide enough for an island which was one of our most sought after features. It is now the hub of our kitchen and allows us to maneuver easily when preparing meals and cleaning up. The corner pantry is conveniently located and large enough to store all of our food items and then some! Because of the kitchenís ample space, we were able to install both a gas cook-top and double electric wall ovens. The laundry room with utility sink is an area that definitely suits our needs. With the inclusion of a large bonus room, our family is able to utilize the space for many things. It is truly a multi-purpose room. It is where our children store and play with most of their toys. There is also a built-in area for a projector television screen that we can use to watch movies and sporting events. Off of the bonus room, we were able to add an additional room that can be utilized for many different things. This houseís layout is very fluid which allows you to easily and efficiently flow from one room to the next. The interior is wonderfully bathed in natural light from the many large windows situated in optimal areas around the house. While the interior of this home is fantastic in and of itself, it wasnít the only reason we went with this particular house plan. The exterior of the home is exactly the style we were drawn to. The French Country architectural style is very appealing and this house holds true to those characteristics. The roof pitches, gables, dormers, and arched entryway aesthetically accentuate the French Countryside look. We also selected brick, soffit, gutters/downspouts, doors, and shutters in colors and styles that compliment the houseís design. We definitely achieved the look and feel we were dreaming of inside and outside our home. We love everything about this house plan! Some of our favorite features include: every square foot is utilized efficiently (no wasted space); one-level living with zoned bedrooms; an abundance of storage; eat-in kitchen large enough to accommodate a center island; and charming architecture. Thank you so much for providing this house plan that so fully met our needs. We also would like to compliment you on the customer service you provided to us on the purchasing of our plan. It was a wonderful experience and we would heartily recommend your company and home plans to anyone out there.
