Andy McDonald Home Designs

mudhog79August 24, 2007

Has anyone purchased an Andy McDonald house design? How were the building plans and so on? What did you think?

My wife and i have pretty much narrowed it down to a single plan and were looking for feedback on their product.


Here is a link to their site.

Thanks in advance.

Two beautiful homes in my small subdivision were designed by Andy McDonald. One was a custom design for very discriminating homeownwers. They employed an excellent builder who did an wonderful job. The home is an asset to the neighborhood.
The other was a stock plan that the homeownwers had Andy modify a bit. The OB made an incredibly bad, last minute, on the job decision to change a front window from small, custom, wood to large, white, aluminum. It destroyed the lovely proportion Andy intended. It is still a nice home, but Andy would cringe if he ever saw that window! The point of that story, you don't have to be smart to follow Andy's plans. You just have to be dumb to change it!
