Plan Description

Cape Cods are among the most popular designs of all time. This moderately sized plan is symmetrically beautiful. The traditional central foyer leads to a formal living area on the left and a study (or additional bedroom) on the right. A bay-windowed dining room sits between the spacious kitchen and the living room. A family room with a beam ceiling and raised-hearth fireplace offers access to the rear terrace through sliding glass doors. Dormer windows grace two of the three bedrooms on the second floor. The family bedrooms share a full bath. The master bedroom contains a private bath with a dressing area.

Everything, including the text, is backward in relation to the original design. These kinds of drawing are typically used to reorient an original plan more advantageously on a site, either because the homeowner prefers it that way or because of limitations of the site itself.

In addition: 5 Copy set selected, should only allow 4 mirrored sets to be selected. 8 Copy set selected, should only allow 7 mirrored sets to be selected.
