Construction document phase- Two story house plan in Timbergrove


Our clients building in Timbergrove have decided on their elevation and general house plan layout. Now Preston and his team are switching gears and concentrating on the construction documents phase. The clients are pleased and that makes us happy!

Design Solutions

As one of the clients expressed the wish to spend his time inside the home exclusively on the first floor, a downstairs master was required.  Preston has designed the first floor as a series of rooms that flow into one another. The kitchen is open to the tv room, which opens to the rear deck. During gatherings guests can access the open dining/living room through the entry with cathedral ceiling or via a buffet/bar area through the kitchen. The spacious kitchen is also ideal for informal gatherings, as the large central island seats 6 people.

Second Floor Plan First Floor Plan Front elevation of Timbergrove home

Preston connected the first and second floors spatially by including several double height rooms. He designed the upstairs to consist solely of guest bedrooms and an office. After a few iterations, the clients decided on a somewhat eclectic home plan, as shown on the front elevation. The outdoor spaces of this home were as carefully designed as the interior.  In order to enjoy the verdant surroundings and a view of the ravine, the attached covered veranda and open lanai will be cantilevered over the little valley, with a drop of 18’ from the deck to the bottom. The fact that the house will be built 3’ above grade for extra flood protection contributes to this height, which will add dramatic effect. The lot is located in a flood plain, so requirements beyond typical residential permitting needed to be met. An elevation certificate had to be provided and a stormwater mitigation plan had to be obtained by an engineer. The ravine is protected, so no soil can be added or taken away, and it must be protected during construction.

Once the plan is permitted, construction will begin quickly. We will be sure to post on the progress!
