Here is a truly exciting design!!!! I designed this home to accomodate a narrow (40) foot lot (50 with three car garage option) and also to give maximum livability to a large family. There are optimum sized formal rooms and a well placed maximum sized kitchen and family room. There is a private den and a luxurious master suite on the main level. Upstairs are 3 big bedrooms and a bonus room.. All of this is in just over 2700 square feet, a miracle in itself. The house lives very large but will fit any lot… It also is one of the most exciting of our MSA Prairie line with its multiple hipped roofs and broad eaves. We have 4 different front elevations for this exciting plan. Call our office for a fax back

This was the plan chosen from among all nationally available stock plans for a Home Magazine Sponsored Show House in The Chicago Street Of Dreams. Dubbed “The Well Crafted Home” by magazine editor Gayle Steves, this design was published by Home Magazine and has grown in popularity ever since. Some of the photographs on the toolbar to the right are taken from the ShowHouse itself. The sleek, sophisticated Prairie style is timeless, and along with this flexible and time tested floor plan, we have produced a best seller. Notice the back stairway and vaulted family room. This plan also has one of the biggest bonus rooms in its class. The master suite is luxurious and private.

This has been the most succesful design debuting in the highly competitive Desginers Showcase Of Homes. Builders and buyers have both flocked to the open great room degin on the main floor. As the pictures reveal this arrangement gives way to long views through the home, and this along with the graceful coved ceilings give the feeling of much more space that is really here. The main floor master suite has also been a favorite among couples and parents of older children. The kitchen is truly generous as is the dinig room.. The basement in this house offers great flexibility. Some of my clients have finished the entire lower floor while others build it just like the plan. Both options are possible with the stock plan. We have revisions to this design from 2400 square feet up to 2908 square feet. If you have a downsloping lot and want one story with a basement this IS THE PLAN FOR YOU11

I was inspired by my oldest son to design this home (in fact he did most of the preliminary work). The sophisticated rotunda leads to one of the most efficient smaller homes I have ever designed. If you have a family of 4 or 5, this is the perfect house for you. It has a spacious 3 car garage with the utility room just inside the door as well as a private powder room. The bonus room is large and there are separate living and dining rooms.
