RICHLAND (D6787) The Richland (D6787) is a versatile home in that it is narrow so it will fit those odd shaped lots; it is an excellent size to be either a first time homeownerís dream or the home for the empty nester. It has good eye appeal from the street with its clean lines, large windows, and a two-car garage that is set back and does not protrude too far beyond the rest of the home. Crossing the covered porch, the entry to the Richland is a small alcove with a coat closet on the left. Straight forward is the great room and to the left are bedrooms. The great room has a large fireplace on the rear wall with a window on each side, overlooking the backyard. Sliding glass doors on the left side opening onto a covered porch in the rear. A large dining area and the kitchen complete the large great room. The kitchen is in the right front corner. There is an ìLî shaped counter with a pantry on the end along with an island containing dual sinks and an eating bar. It is open and facing the main great room. Stairs to an optional basement are across from the kitchen. The basement if finished could have 1,333 square feet of usable space. The bedrooms are on each side of the home. On the left are two bedrooms with a full bath between. Bedroom 2 has a wall closet and two windows that bathe the room in natural light. Bedroom 3

has a corner walk-in closet and large windows overlooking the front yard. The full bath has a tub, single sink, and a linen closet. Behind the two-car garage, sheltering it from the noise of the street is the master suite. The main suite area is in the rear and has coffered ceilings. Through the master bath with a single sink and a tub is an elongated walk-in closet. Adjacent to the master suite and just off the kitchen is the utility room. A door in the hall shuts the room off from the rest of the home, whereas a door to the garage makes easy access for unloading groceries and packages. The Richland (D6787) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1-800-5621151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details. A $25 study plan is also available consisting of: an artist rendering, elevations, floor plans, and cross section. Order online or search hundreds of other designs including garages, multi family, and standard and luxury homes at www.ldiplans.com. Order this week to save up to 50% off construction plans using the discount code (newspaper discount code) or send payment to Landmark Designs, Inc.

1840 King Arthur Dr.

DEADWOOD (406-25) An angular plan with vaults rising to the central hexagonal gas fireplace hearth, the Deadwood (406-25) offers 180 degrees of view potential from the living and dining areas. This uniquely shaped home contains 2,056 square feet of open living space. Stairs lead up to the guest entry as well as an informal entry into the utility from the garage. The vaulted interior begins at the entry, carrying through into the great room beyond. An optional plant shelf over the coat closet would emphasize the vault; yet maintain a separation between the kitchen and living room. To the right of the entry, the kitchen is made unique by the central hexagon shape of the home. The pantry provides enough space to store the needs of a large family. A garden window, while the dishwasher, range, brightens the sink and refrigerator is all located within easy distance. A raised eating bar provides a large informal eating area near the dining table. Just off the dining area is a door to a spacious master suite, complete with a window seat and patio doors leading to a semi-private deck. A planter outside provides a beautiful separation between this deck and the family deck. Entering past the large walk-in closet, the luxurious bath, complete with an

oversized tub, shower, linen closet, and double sinks, awaits use. Bedroom 3 has two large picture windows, while the den has one window. The large linen closet for these rooms is located by the utility. A full bath with a large window is adjacent to the utility room, which contains a sink, washer and dryer, and a closet with the forced air unit. This room has been designed for maximum access into the home. The garage has an extra large area ideal for a shop/garden tool area, or for storing seasonal items. Overall, the Deadwoodís shape lends itself for a great daylight basement underneath, should one be desired. The Deadwood (406-25) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1800-562-1151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details. A $25 study plan is also available consisting of: an artist rendering, elevations, floor plans, and cross section. Order online or search hundreds of other designs including garages, multi family, and standard and luxury homes at www.ldiplans.com.

BANTAM (408-41) The Bantam (408-41) is the ideal home for a narrow or elongated lot. It is two story and contains a total of 1,899 square feet of living space. It does not have a garage. The Bantam has two covered decks and a covered porch. The entry opens facing the kitchen with the living room on the right and the dinette on the left. The living/dining room is very large and open, with patio doors opening onto the side deck. There is an eating bar in addition to the dinette area and the formal dining room. The kitchen is U-shaped with a garden window over the sink and a large amount of kitchen counters. The dinette has built-in seats around a sleeve shaped table. Adjacent to the dinette are the stairs to either up to the second floor or down to the basement. Across the hall are the main bathroom and the master suite. Through a pocket door is the walk-in closet of the master suite with a closet containing the forced air unit and the water heater. The master suite itself is very large with a door opening onto the rear deck area. A touch of luxury has been provided in a built-in entertainment center. The second floor has to large bedrooms with a study center and a shared bathroom between. Both bedrooms have two skylights in the sloped ceilings and large

wall closets. There is a storage closet across from the bath, which contains a large linen closet. The study center is great for all ages as it has two work areas and an abundance of work space. There are over counter cabinets allowing storage of paper and supplies. The optional plan for the basement would provide an extra area of 1,070 square feet. This area could be left unfinished, or it could be used as a family room/recreation room The clean look of the Bantam makes it a great home, and being narrow makes it ideal for many of the new lots. With its many skylights and the dormer over the stair area, it will be a bright, cheerful home, full of sunlight and openness. The Bantam (408-41) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1-800-562-1151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details.

JACKIE MOODY 875-8367

RHAPSODY (338-050) Comfort with elegance; spaciousness with many extra features describes the ranch style of the Rhapsody (338-050). The exterior is brick with a large wrap-around-covered porch. Creative natural light is provided by skylights and light tubes. Disguising the garage is a brick planter under a row of large windows. There are two doors off the entry porch. One goes to the garage with a large shop and a separate storage area. The other opens into a vaulted family room with many windows. An entertainment center livens up the family room, while on the opposite side, a fireplace graces the dining area. Large overhead fans provide air circulation while complimenting the scale of the room. The kitchen/nook area is very accessible with a nook that opens to the covered deck. There is an island cooktop with a raised eating bar and a large walk-in pantry for extra food storage is on the adjacent corner. A pocket door opens into the hall. A raised dishwasher has been added for ease of loading. Convenient to the entry is the office/library, lined with shelves and a large corner computer desk. French doors provide a grandiose entrance. Adjacent to the office is a half bath with the utility area around the corner. Two bedrooms located in the rear of the home have large walk-in closets and personal linen closets. The larger of the two could be a guest room, with a private covered deck through sliding doors. Both bedrooms share a tub/shower combination with private half

bath. On the opposite side of the home is the unique master suite and a sunroom or living room adjacent. The master suite opens onto the covered porch area separately through a door on the side and French doors in the rear. Numerous windows and skylights give the room extra sunlight. Adding to the uniqueness of the master suite, an oversized walk-in closet with a second water heater. The bath has dual sinks, an oversized tub, shower, and a pocket door entrance to the sunroom/living room. A vaulted formal living room would be wonderful with four skylights and a half moon window overhead to brighten the area and provide extra light. However, equally ideal would be to install a spa and use this room as a sunroom. The room is shut off from the home with the elegance of the French doors. The Rhapsody (338-050) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1-800-562-1151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details. A $25 study plan is also available consisting of: an artist rendering, elevations, floor plans, and cross section. Order online or search hundreds of other designs including garages, multi family, and standard and luxury homes at www.ldiplans.com. Order this week to save up to 50% off construction plans using the discount code (newspaper discount code) or send payment to Landmark Designs, Inc. PO Box 5625 Eugene, OR 97405, remember to indicate Rhapsody (338-050) and code.

GREENRIDGE 3 (407-13) Looking for a triplex to fit into a residential area? The Greenridge 3 (407-13) is ideal as it has a special elegance that belies the fact of this plan being a multi-dwelling. Each unit has its own garage and private patio areas. The exterior has a blend of brick, dryvit, and wood siding that gives the triplex its own individual style. Unit one has 928 square feet. Walking down the covered porch past the one car garage, the entry opens into the vaulted living and dining rooms. Adjacent to the dining room is a walk through utility room with a pocket door and a regular door into the garage. The kitchen has a built-in dishwasher and a double sink with the water heater in the hallway. Beyond the closet is the main bathroom. Two bedrooms are in the rear with the master bedroom having a full walk-in closet and private bath. The second bedroom is next to the main bathroom. The uniqueness of this triplex is that all three of the units are laid out differently. The middle unitís entry opens facing the utility room with a hallway leading to the balance of the unit. The utility room contains the water heater and washer/dryer. The kitchen, next to the utility, faces the hallway. There is an eating bar on the dining room side. The vaulted living and dining area have a high, open look. Opposite the living room are two bedrooms with a shared bathroom with a tub. The wall closets and large

windows on each end provide useful amenities to each bedroom. This unit is the smallest of three units at 896 square feet. The third unit is the largest unit in this triplex with 994 square feet of living space and the larger garage area. Layout on this unit is wider than either of the other two. The entry opens into the vaulted living room with two large windows. There is a small hall closet for coats located opposite the kitchen. The washer and dryer are located in a closet area behind a folding door adjacent to the bedrooms. Bedroom two is adjacent to the main bath for the home. In the rear, the master suite has a large corner walk-in closet and a full bath with a tub. The Greenridge 3 (407-13) is our plan of the week.

GREENRIDGE 3 (407-13) Looking for a triplex to fit into a residential area? The Greenridge 3 (407-13) is ideal as it has a special elegance that belies the fact of this plan being a multi-dwelling. Each unit has its own garage and private patio areas. The exterior has a blend of brick, dryvit, and wood siding that gives the triplex its own individual style. Unit one has 928 square feet. Walking down the covered porch past the one car garage, the entry opens into the vaulted living and dining rooms. Adjacent to the dining room is a walk through utility room with a pocket door and a regular door into the garage. The kitchen has a built-in dishwasher and a double sink with the water heater in the hallway. Beyond the closet is the main bathroom. Two bedrooms are in the rear with the master bedroom having a full walk-in closet and private bath. The second bedroom is next to the main bathroom. The uniqueness of this triplex is that all three of the units are laid out differently. The middle unitís entry opens facing the utility room with a hallway leading to the balance of the unit. The utility room contains the water heater and washer/dryer. The kitchen, next to the utility, faces the hallway. There is an eating bar on the dining room side. The vaulted living and dining area have a high, open look. Opposite the living room are two bedrooms with a shared bathroom with a tub. The wall closets and large

RHAPSODY (338-050) Comfort with elegance; spaciousness with many extra features describes the ranch style of the Rhapsody (338-050). The exterior is brick with a large wrap-around-covered porch. Creative natural light is provided by skylights and light tubes. Disguising the garage is a brick planter under a row of large windows. There are two doors off the entry porch. One goes to the garage with a large shop and a separate storage area. The other opens into a vaulted family room with many windows. An entertainment center livens up the family room, while on the opposite side, a fireplace graces the dining area. Large overhead fans provide air circulation while complimenting the scale of the room. The kitchen/nook area is very accessible with a nook that opens to the covered deck. There is an island cooktop with a raised eating bar and a large walk-in pantry for extra food storage is on the adjacent corner. A pocket door opens into the hall. A raised dishwasher has been added for ease of loading. Convenient to the entry is the office/library, lined with shelves and a large corner computer desk. French doors provide a grandiose entrance. Adjacent to the office is a half bath with the utility area around the corner. Two bedrooms located in the rear of the home have large walk-in closets and personal linen closets. The larger of the two could be a guest room, with a private covered deck through sliding doors. Both bedrooms share a tub/shower combination with private half

bath. On the opposite side of the home is the unique master suite and a sunroom or living room adjacent. The master suite opens onto the covered porch area separately through a door on the side and French doors in the rear. Numerous windows and skylights give the room extra sunlight. Adding to the uniqueness of the master suite, an oversized walk-in closet with a second water heater. The bath has dual sinks, an oversized tub, shower, and a pocket door entrance to the sunroom/living room. A vaulted formal living room would be wonderful with four skylights and a half moon window overhead to brighten the area and provide extra light. However, equally ideal would be to install a spa and use this room as a sunroom. The room is shut off from the home with the elegance of the French doors. The Rhapsody (338-050) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1-800-562-1151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details. A $25 study plan is also available consisting of: an artist rendering, elevations, floor plans, and cross section.

BANTAM (408-41) The Bantam (408-41) is the ideal home for a narrow or elongated lot. It is two story and contains a total of 1,899 square feet of living space. It does not have a garage. The Bantam has two covered decks and a covered porch. The entry opens facing the kitchen with the living room on the right and the dinette on the left. The living/dining room is very large and open, with patio doors opening onto the side deck. There is an eating bar in addition to the dinette area and the formal dining room. The kitchen is U-shaped with a garden window over the sink and a large amount of kitchen counters. The dinette has built-in seats around a sleeve shaped table. Adjacent to the dinette are the stairs to either up to the second floor or down to the basement. Across the hall are the main bathroom and the master suite. Through a pocket door is the walk-in closet of the master suite with a closet containing the forced air unit and the water heater. The master suite itself is very large with a door opening onto the rear deck area. A touch of luxury has been provided in a built-in entertainment center. The second floor has to large bedrooms with a study center and a shared bathroom between. Both bedrooms have two skylights in the sloped ceilings and large

wall closets. There is a storage closet across from the bath, which contains a large linen closet. The study center is great for all ages as it has two work areas and an abundance of work space. There are over counter cabinets allowing storage of paper and supplies. The optional plan for the basement would provide an extra area of 1,070 square feet. This area could be left unfinished, or it could be used as a family room/recreation room The clean look of the Bantam makes it a great home, and being narrow makes it ideal for many of the new lots. With its many skylights and the dormer over the stair area, it will be a bright, cheerful home, full of sunlight and openness. The Bantam (408-41) is our plan of the week.

1840 King Arthur Dr.

DEADWOOD (406-25) An angular plan with vaults rising to the central hexagonal gas fireplace hearth, the Deadwood (406-25) offers 180 degrees of view potential from the living and dining areas. This uniquely shaped home contains 2,056 square feet of open living space. Stairs lead up to the guest entry as well as an informal entry into the utility from the garage. The vaulted interior begins at the entry, carrying through into the great room beyond. An optional plant shelf over the coat closet would emphasize the vault; yet maintain a separation between the kitchen and living room. To the right of the entry, the kitchen is made unique by the central hexagon shape of the home. The pantry provides enough space to store the needs of a large family. A garden window, while the dishwasher, range, brightens the sink and refrigerator is all located within easy distance. A raised eating bar provides a large informal eating area near the dining table. Just off the dining area is a door to a spacious master suite, complete with a window seat and patio doors leading to a semi-private deck. A planter outside provides a beautiful separation between this deck and the family deck. Entering past the large walk-in closet, the luxurious bath, complete with an

oversized tub, shower, linen closet, and double sinks, awaits use. Bedroom 3 has two large picture windows, while the den has one window. The large linen closet for these rooms is located by the utility. A full bath with a large window is adjacent to the utility room, which contains a sink, washer and dryer, and a closet with the forced air unit. This room has been designed for maximum access into the home. The garage has an extra large area ideal for a shop/garden tool area, or for storing seasonal items. Overall, the Deadwoodís shape lends itself for a great daylight basement underneath, should one be desired. The Deadwood (406-25) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1800-562-1151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details. A $25 study plan is also available consisting of: an artist rendering, elevations, floor plans, and cross section. Order online or search hundreds of other designs including garages, multi family, and standard and luxury homes at www.ldiplans.com. Order this week to save up to 50% off construction plans using the discount code (newspaper discount code) or send payment to Landmark Designs, Inc. PO Box 5625 Eugene, OR 97405, remember to indicate Deadwood (406-25) and code.

YOUR ONE STOP SHOP

RICHLAND (D6787) The Richland (D6787) is a versatile home in that it is narrow so it will fit those odd shaped lots; it is an excellent size to be either a first time homeownerís dream or the home for the empty nester. It has good eye appeal from the street with its clean lines, large windows, and a two-car garage that is set back and does not protrude too far beyond the rest of the home. Crossing the covered porch, the entry to the Richland is a small alcove with a coat closet on the left. Straight forward is the great room and to the left are bedrooms. The great room has a large fireplace on the rear wall with a window on each side, overlooking the backyard. Sliding glass doors on the left side opening onto a covered porch in the rear. A large dining area and the kitchen complete the large great room. The kitchen is in the right front corner. There is an ìLî shaped counter with a pantry on the end along with an island containing dual sinks and an eating bar. It is open and facing the main great room. Stairs to an optional basement are across from the kitchen. The basement if finished could have 1,333 square feet of usable space. The bedrooms are on each side of the home. On the left are two bedrooms with a full bath between. Bedroom 2 has a wall closet and two windows that bathe the room in natural light. Bedroom 3

18 31

has a corner walk-in closet and large windows overlooking the front yard. The full bath has a tub, single sink, and a linen closet. Behind the two-car garage, sheltering it from the noise of the street is the master suite. The main suite area is in the rear and has coffered ceilings. Through the master bath with a single sink and a tub is an elongated walk-in closet. Adjacent to the master suite and just off the kitchen is the utility room. A door in the hall shuts the room off from the rest of the home, whereas a door to the garage makes easy access for unloading groceries and packages. The Richland (D6787) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1-800-5621151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details.

YOUR ONE STOP SHOP

RICHLAND (D6787) The Richland (D6787) is a versatile home in that it is narrow so it will fit those odd shaped lots; it is an excellent size to be either a first time homeownerís dream or the home for the empty nester. It has good eye appeal from the street with its clean lines, large windows, and a two-car garage that is set back and does not protrude too far beyond the rest of the home. Crossing the covered porch, the entry to the Richland is a small alcove with a coat closet on the left. Straight forward is the great room and to the left are bedrooms. The great room has a large fireplace on the rear wall with a window on each side, overlooking the backyard. Sliding glass doors on the left side opening onto a covered porch in the rear. A large dining area and the kitchen complete the large great room. The kitchen is in the right front corner. There is an ìLî shaped counter with a pantry on the end along with an island containing dual sinks and an eating bar. It is open and facing the main great room. Stairs to an optional basement are across from the kitchen. The basement if finished could have 1,333 square feet of usable space. The bedrooms are on each side of the home. On the left are two bedrooms with a full bath between. Bedroom 2 has a wall closet and two windows that bathe the room in natural light. Bedroom 3

18 31

has a corner walk-in closet and large windows overlooking the front yard. The full bath has a tub, single sink, and a linen closet. Behind the two-car garage, sheltering it from the noise of the street is the master suite. The main suite area is in the rear and has coffered ceilings. Through the master bath with a single sink and a tub is an elongated walk-in closet. Adjacent to the master suite and just off the kitchen is the utility room. A door in the hall shuts the room off from the rest of the home, whereas a door to the garage makes easy access for unloading groceries and packages. The Richland (D6787) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1-800-5621151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details. A $25 study plan is also available consisting of: an artist rendering, elevations, floor plans, and cross section. Order online or search hundreds of other designs including garages, multi family, and standard and luxury homes at www.ldiplans.com.

1840 King Arthur Dr.

DEADWOOD (406-25) An angular plan with vaults rising to the central hexagonal gas fireplace hearth, the Deadwood (406-25) offers 180 degrees of view potential from the living and dining areas. This uniquely shaped home contains 2,056 square feet of open living space. Stairs lead up to the guest entry as well as an informal entry into the utility from the garage. The vaulted interior begins at the entry, carrying through into the great room beyond. An optional plant shelf over the coat closet would emphasize the vault; yet maintain a separation between the kitchen and living room. To the right of the entry, the kitchen is made unique by the central hexagon shape of the home. The pantry provides enough space to store the needs of a large family. A garden window, while the dishwasher, range, brightens the sink and refrigerator is all located within easy distance. A raised eating bar provides a large informal eating area near the dining table. Just off the dining area is a door to a spacious master suite, complete with a window seat and patio doors leading to a semi-private deck. A planter outside provides a beautiful separation between this deck and the family deck. Entering past the large walk-in closet, the luxurious bath, complete with an

oversized tub, shower, linen closet, and double sinks, awaits use. Bedroom 3 has two large picture windows, while the den has one window. The large linen closet for these rooms is located by the utility. A full bath with a large window is adjacent to the utility room, which contains a sink, washer and dryer, and a closet with the forced air unit. This room has been designed for maximum access into the home. The garage has an extra large area ideal for a shop/garden tool area, or for storing seasonal items. Overall, the Deadwoodís shape lends itself for a great daylight basement underneath, should one be desired. The Deadwood (406-25) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1800-562-1151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details. A $25 study plan is also available consisting of: an artist rendering, elevations, floor plans, and cross section.

BANTAM (408-41) The Bantam (408-41) is the ideal home for a narrow or elongated lot. It is two story and contains a total of 1,899 square feet of living space. It does not have a garage. The Bantam has two covered decks and a covered porch. The entry opens facing the kitchen with the living room on the right and the dinette on the left. The living/dining room is very large and open, with patio doors opening onto the side deck. There is an eating bar in addition to the dinette area and the formal dining room. The kitchen is U-shaped with a garden window over the sink and a large amount of kitchen counters. The dinette has built-in seats around a sleeve shaped table. Adjacent to the dinette are the stairs to either up to the second floor or down to the basement. Across the hall are the main bathroom and the master suite. Through a pocket door is the walk-in closet of the master suite with a closet containing the forced air unit and the water heater. The master suite itself is very large with a door opening onto the rear deck area. A touch of luxury has been provided in a built-in entertainment center. The second floor has to large bedrooms with a study center and a shared bathroom between. Both bedrooms have two skylights in the sloped ceilings and large

wall closets. There is a storage closet across from the bath, which contains a large linen closet. The study center is great for all ages as it has two work areas and an abundance of work space. There are over counter cabinets allowing storage of paper and supplies. The optional plan for the basement would provide an extra area of 1,070 square feet. This area could be left unfinished, or it could be used as a family room/recreation room The clean look of the Bantam makes it a great home, and being narrow makes it ideal for many of the new lots. With its many skylights and the dormer over the stair area, it will be a bright, cheerful home, full of sunlight and openness. The Bantam (408-41) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1-800-562-1151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details.

RHAPSODY (338-050) Comfort with elegance; spaciousness with many extra features describes the ranch style of the Rhapsody (338-050). The exterior is brick with a large wrap-around-covered porch. Creative natural light is provided by skylights and light tubes. Disguising the garage is a brick planter under a row of large windows. There are two doors off the entry porch. One goes to the garage with a large shop and a separate storage area. The other opens into a vaulted family room with many windows. An entertainment center livens up the family room, while on the opposite side, a fireplace graces the dining area. Large overhead fans provide air circulation while complimenting the scale of the room. The kitchen/nook area is very accessible with a nook that opens to the covered deck. There is an island cooktop with a raised eating bar and a large walk-in pantry for extra food storage is on the adjacent corner. A pocket door opens into the hall. A raised dishwasher has been added for ease of loading. Convenient to the entry is the office/library, lined with shelves and a large corner computer desk. French doors provide a grandiose entrance. Adjacent to the office is a half bath with the utility area around the corner. Two bedrooms located in the rear of the home have large walk-in closets and personal linen closets. The larger of the two could be a guest room, with a private covered deck through sliding doors. Both bedrooms share a tub/shower combination with private half

bath. On the opposite side of the home is the unique master suite and a sunroom or living room adjacent. The master suite opens onto the covered porch area separately through a door on the side and French doors in the rear. Numerous windows and skylights give the room extra sunlight. Adding to the uniqueness of the master suite, an oversized walk-in closet with a second water heater. The bath has dual sinks, an oversized tub, shower, and a pocket door entrance to the sunroom/living room. A vaulted formal living room would be wonderful with four skylights and a half moon window overhead to brighten the area and provide extra light. However, equally ideal would be to install a spa and use this room as a sunroom. The room is shut off from the home with the elegance of the French doors.

GREENRIDGE 3 (407-13) Looking for a triplex to fit into a residential area? The Greenridge 3 (407-13) is ideal as it has a special elegance that belies the fact of this plan being a multi-dwelling. Each unit has its own garage and private patio areas. The exterior has a blend of brick, dryvit, and wood siding that gives the triplex its own individual style. Unit one has 928 square feet. Walking down the covered porch past the one car garage, the entry opens into the vaulted living and dining rooms. Adjacent to the dining room is a walk through utility room with a pocket door and a regular door into the garage. The kitchen has a built-in dishwasher and a double sink with the water heater in the hallway. Beyond the closet is the main bathroom. Two bedrooms are in the rear with the master bedroom having a full walk-in closet and private bath. The second bedroom is next to the main bathroom. The uniqueness of this triplex is that all three of the units are laid out differently. The middle unitís entry opens facing the utility room with a hallway leading to the balance of the unit. The utility room contains the water heater and washer/dryer. The kitchen, next to the utility, faces the hallway. There is an eating bar on the dining room side. The vaulted living and dining area have a high, open look. Opposite the living room are two bedrooms with a shared bathroom with a tub. The wall closets and large

RHAPSODY (338-050) Comfort with elegance; spaciousness with many extra features describes the ranch style of the Rhapsody (338-050). The exterior is brick with a large wrap-around-covered porch. Creative natural light is provided by skylights and light tubes. Disguising the garage is a brick planter under a row of large windows. There are two doors off the entry porch. One goes to the garage with a large shop and a separate storage area. The other opens into a vaulted family room with many windows. An entertainment center livens up the family room, while on the opposite side, a fireplace graces the dining area. Large overhead fans provide air circulation while complimenting the scale of the room. The kitchen/nook area is very accessible with a nook that opens to the covered deck. There is an island cooktop with a raised eating bar and a large walk-in pantry for extra food storage is on the adjacent corner. A pocket door opens into the hall. A raised dishwasher has been added for ease of loading. Convenient to the entry is the office/library, lined with shelves and a large corner computer desk. French doors provide a grandiose entrance. Adjacent to the office is a half bath with the utility area around the corner. Two bedrooms located in the rear of the home have large walk-in closets and personal linen closets. The larger of the two could be a guest room, with a private covered deck through sliding doors. Both bedrooms share a tub/shower combination with private half

bath. On the opposite side of the home is the unique master suite and a sunroom or living room adjacent. The master suite opens onto the covered porch area separately through a door on the side and French doors in the rear. Numerous windows and skylights give the room extra sunlight. Adding to the uniqueness of the master suite, an oversized walk-in closet with a second water heater. The bath has dual sinks, an oversized tub, shower, and a pocket door entrance to the sunroom/living room. A vaulted formal living room would be wonderful with four skylights and a half moon window overhead to brighten the area and provide extra light. However, equally ideal would be to install a spa and use this room as a sunroom. The room is shut off from the home with the elegance of the French doors. The Rhapsody (338-050) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1-800-562-1151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details. A $25 study plan is also available consisting of: an artist rendering, elevations, floor plans, and cross section.

BANTAM (408-41) The Bantam (408-41) is the ideal home for a narrow or elongated lot. It is two story and contains a total of 1,899 square feet of living space. It does not have a garage. The Bantam has two covered decks and a covered porch. The entry opens facing the kitchen with the living room on the right and the dinette on the left. The living/dining room is very large and open, with patio doors opening onto the side deck. There is an eating bar in addition to the dinette area and the formal dining room. The kitchen is U-shaped with a garden window over the sink and a large amount of kitchen counters. The dinette has built-in seats around a sleeve shaped table. Adjacent to the dinette are the stairs to either up to the second floor or down to the basement. Across the hall are the main bathroom and the master suite. Through a pocket door is the walk-in closet of the master suite with a closet containing the forced air unit and the water heater. The master suite itself is very large with a door opening onto the rear deck area. A touch of luxury has been provided in a built-in entertainment center. The second floor has to large bedrooms with a study center and a shared bathroom between. Both bedrooms have two skylights in the sloped ceilings and large

wall closets. There is a storage closet across from the bath, which contains a large linen closet. The study center is great for all ages as it has two work areas and an abundance of work space. There are over counter cabinets allowing storage of paper and supplies. The optional plan for the basement would provide an extra area of 1,070 square feet. This area could be left unfinished, or it could be used as a family room/recreation room The clean look of the Bantam makes it a great home, and being narrow makes it ideal for many of the new lots. With its many skylights and the dormer over the stair area, it will be a bright, cheerful home, full of sunlight and openness. The Bantam (408-41) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1-800-562-1151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details.

1840 King Arthur Dr.

DEADWOOD (406-25) An angular plan with vaults rising to the central hexagonal gas fireplace hearth, the Deadwood (406-25) offers 180 degrees of view potential from the living and dining areas. This uniquely shaped home contains 2,056 square feet of open living space. Stairs lead up to the guest entry as well as an informal entry into the utility from the garage. The vaulted interior begins at the entry, carrying through into the great room beyond. An optional plant shelf over the coat closet would emphasize the vault; yet maintain a separation between the kitchen and living room. To the right of the entry, the kitchen is made unique by the central hexagon shape of the home. The pantry provides enough space to store the needs of a large family. A garden window, while the dishwasher, range, brightens the sink and refrigerator is all located within easy distance. A raised eating bar provides a large informal eating area near the dining table. Just off the dining area is a door to a spacious master suite, complete with a window seat and patio doors leading to a semi-private deck. A planter outside provides a beautiful separation between this deck and the family deck. Entering past the large walk-in closet, the luxurious bath, complete with an

oversized tub, shower, linen closet, and double sinks, awaits use. Bedroom 3 has two large picture windows, while the den has one window. The large linen closet for these rooms is located by the utility. A full bath with a large window is adjacent to the utility room, which contains a sink, washer and dryer, and a closet with the forced air unit. This room has been designed for maximum access into the home. The garage has an extra large area ideal for a shop/garden tool area, or for storing seasonal items. Overall, the Deadwoodís shape lends itself for a great daylight basement underneath, should one be desired. The Deadwood (406-25) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1800-562-1151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details. A $25 study plan is also available consisting of: an artist rendering, elevations, floor plans, and cross section. Order online or search hundreds of other designs including garages, multi family, and standard and luxury homes at www.ldiplans.com.

RICHLAND (D6787) The Richland (D6787) is a versatile home in that it is narrow so it will fit those odd shaped lots; it is an excellent size to be either a first time homeownerís dream or the home for the empty nester. It has good eye appeal from the street with its clean lines, large windows, and a two-car garage that is set back and does not protrude too far beyond the rest of the home. Crossing the covered porch, the entry to the Richland is a small alcove with a coat closet on the left. Straight forward is the great room and to the left are bedrooms. The great room has a large fireplace on the rear wall with a window on each side, overlooking the backyard. Sliding glass doors on the left side opening onto a covered porch in the rear. A large dining area and the kitchen complete the large great room. The kitchen is in the right front corner. There is an ìLî shaped counter with a pantry on the end along with an island containing dual sinks and an eating bar. It is open and facing the main great room. Stairs to an optional basement are across from the kitchen. The basement if finished could have 1,333 square feet of usable space. The bedrooms are on each side of the home. On the left are two bedrooms with a full bath between. Bedroom 2 has a wall closet and two windows that bathe the room in natural light. Bedroom 3

has a corner walk-in closet and large windows overlooking the front yard. The full bath has a tub, single sink, and a linen closet. Behind the two-car garage, sheltering it from the noise of the street is the master suite. The main suite area is in the rear and has coffered ceilings. Through the master bath with a single sink and a tub is an elongated walk-in closet. Adjacent to the master suite and just off the kitchen is the utility room. A door in the hall shuts the room off from the rest of the home, whereas a door to the garage makes easy access for unloading groceries and packages. The Richland (D6787) is our plan of the week. For a limited time, we are offering up to 50% off construction plans for this design. Call us at 1-800-5621151 or visit us on line at www.ldiplans.com for details.
