More on the Frenchboro


We rolled out our new Frenchboro design a few weeks ago, and we were thrilled to see a very enthusiastic response. Some follow-up questions are answered below!

I like a more contemporary look, is that possible?
Indeed!  As indicated by the very different renderings shown above, you can "dress up" your Frenchboro in the clothing (or cladding!) that befits your style.  Whether you prefer a steeper-pitched roof with more cottage or classic lines, or a sleeker, low-slung frame with clean contemporary lines, we want you to have the aesthetic you like best.  Between the renderings above, the basic floor plan of the home is largely unchanged - showing the potential in simply changing the exterior look & feel of this design.

How many square feet?
The design offers 1,345 square feet of efficient living space. It is compact and smart, while still offering the rooms and amenities you would expect in a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home.  

What is the footprint?
As a ranch, it's long and trim. Our footprint falls within 28' x 72', with the garage in-line with the house. The footprint lands within 52' x48', if the garage is adjacent to the north (as in the third rendering above).

Can the mudroom and kitchen be swapped? Or bath 2 made smaller for a larger laundry area? Or can a closet be added by the garage entry?
You bet! We're here to help align our designs with your needs and your site orientation. Modifications to interior layouts are always an option.
