Has anyone built William Poole's design "Bayou Teche"

ldaniel1September 12, 2012

My husband and I are interested in building a four bedroom farmhouse in NC. I love dormers, front porches, and symmetry. I don't care for a formal living room. I'd like his and her closets off of master bedroom or bath, master bedroom on main level, walk-in pantry, jack and jill bath upstairs for 2 daughters to share, and separate bath for my son. This plan has some of those attributes but lacks others. Hoping someone may have suggestions/pics/advice from their experience. Here's the link to the plan: http://www.eplans.com/house-plans/epl/hwepl08563.html

We are currently building a plan similar to what you described. It's called Hampton Circle by The House Designers. We made some modifications to the orginal plan: closed off the wall between the dining and kitchen to make an office, extended and squared off the outside breakfast wall to make a larger dining area, expanded the laundry room area and added a mudroom and full bath with a seperate laundry room where the storage area is on the original. We also tweaked the second level room sizes and added three storage rooms to use up all the empty space up there. We built ours over a walkout basement as well. I'm sorry I don't have our final plan to show you but here is the link to the original one: http://www.thehousedesigners.com/plan/hampton-circle-6364/

SMPop18 love your plan as well. I'd love to see pics of the interior and exterior when complete. It's so hard visualizing room from a one dimensional plan. I have also found a William Poole design I like-Breakwater. It needs some tweaking as well, especially the staircase that opens opposite of the front door.
