Stephanie Plantation - 1780s
The Stephanie Plantation, built by Martin Duralde, a French Basque immigrant, embodies all the grace and comfort of the southern antebellum homes. Modestly scaled and beautifully proportioned, it offers a model of gracious living. Built of brick on the ground level and wood above, with floor plans that promote cross ventilation, this house responds harmoniously to its setting its climate. Broad porches at two levels extend the living space to the outdoors.
As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. This house is eminently adaptable to modern living. The large "great room" on the ground floor can encompass all manner of activities. The kitchen, just off the great room, could be opened into it to accommodate a more open floor plan. The second floor and the attic can accommodate 4 bedrooms with space to spare. This house would be most suited for a flat or low sloping lot. It would be comfortable in a suburban or country setting. Including porches, this house has outside dimensions of approximately 43'x43'.

SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, by US Postal Service, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube.
IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are NOT complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL Southern Style home, not a pseudo-southern tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf. (AN001)
