best site for contemporary house plans?

Posted by susanka (My Page) on

Hi, everyone. We're only beginning to consider that we might build a new home in a year or so. We're looking for a contemporary style with lots of glass, MBR plus guest bedroom, an office, and a TV/music room. Square feet, probably 2000 or so; we're empty-nesters who are building our final home. Our land, if we do this, is sloping. We're thinking of a one-story with a garage on one end down the slope; probably have a deck on top of the garage. This is a lot of detail, I know, but I'm trying to give as full a picture as I can of what we're considering. Thanks for any advice you can offer about a good place to start looking at house plans.

sanctuarygirl, thank you very much. I like many of the mascord designs; hadn't heard of them before you posted.

I'm afraid our lot and house requirements are so specific that we won't find a plan, now that I've looked all day, but I've certainly gotten some ideas. I'll have to let all this jell for a while and see where we are. Again, thank you.

RE: best site for contemporary house plans?

We are considering having Mascord Designs alter one of their plans to meet our needs. We need to make some changes to the interior, and completly change the roof and elevation/style of the house, and so far they seem easy to work with.

Thanks, Laura. We aren't far enough along to even contact anyone yet, but I've got the name now and have saved a plan. We'd like to avoid the cost of an architect; in fact, we probably have to do that or not build, but we're way too early in the process to do more than look at plans and think about what we might like to have. Mascord certaInly has some interesting designs.

RE: best site for contemporary house plans?

susanka, there's a couple of sites you can check out. Here's a few off the top of my head.

Contempophile, Homedsgn, Freshome

Those are pretty good sites to find contemporary designs. I'm sure there's more but it's a good start.

RE: best site for contemporary house plans?

Depending where you are you can get a custom design for little or no more than a quality stock plan. Some areas have quite a bit of regulation which drives the plan cost up considerably.
