Due to regional variations, local availability of materials, local codes, methods of installation, and individual preferences, it is impossible to include detail on heating and plumbing work on your plans. The duct work, venting, and other details will vary depending on the type of heating and cooling system (forced air, hot water, electric, solar) and the type of energy (gas, oil, electricity, solar) that you use. These details and specifications are easily obtained from your builder, contractor, and/or local suppliers.

Q:Does this house plan come in any other versions-like a 20 feet wide vs. 16 feet wide, etc?
It would be a good plan if it had a functional bedroom. The bedroom is too small. Maybe the designer has another version of this plan?
A:This is the only version.

Q:I think we have settled on this plan for our cabin. I do have a very simple question, though. We want to utilize the loft area for a guest bed so can you tell me the height of the inside roof peak so we can get a feel for the amount of usable space in the area above the bedroom, bathroom? Thank you.

Q:Before purchasing your plan, which I really like, I'd like to get a sense of the room in the sleeping loft. Since the plan is listed as 16x24 but the dimension on the drawing for the Liv/Kit is 15', I suppose you deduct a foot for both walls. That would mean the loft is 15'x 10' or so. Please correct me if I am incorrect. The way you've drsigned it, what is the inside roof peak? Also, I've assumed 8' walls.
If we wanted, could we increase the pitch to get more loft space?
Sorry for all the questions.
A:Keep in mind that the loft is not legal sleeping space. Some code officials can get a little quirky over them.
It is called out and labeled as storage on the plans.
The outer wall height is 9’
The space up there is just big enough for a mattress on the floor. It works very well for what it is.
