floor plan - help finding one
Hi - we live on 140 acres about 2 hours away from the closest city. Our land has hills and flat spots. We are ready to build a new home but having difficulty finding a floor plan to start from. We would like to stay in the 2800-3200 sf range with 4 bedrooms. I would like two stories, with the master on the bottom. I'm attracted to a more modern farmhouse look and energy efficiency (passive solar especially). My favorite floor plan to date is this modern craftsman (see link), but it's too large for our budget (around $400k).
Do you think an architect could bring this down to the square footage we'd like? If not, do you have any floor plans you'd recommend? We don't have to worry about zoning, permitting, etc. No neighbor or other person can even see our property, so we're really open on what we can do. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
