An Easy Build
The Sahara house plan has 1456 Sq. Ft. of living space. Sahara is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath modern home which boasts a sleek exterior with the delight of an easy build, by having a low hip roof.
The kitchen is compact, unique and makes a clean break from convention. In a typical kitchen, everyone is turned out toward the walls to perform their tasks, unless they are at the island. In the Pavilion Kitchen arrangement, everyone is turned toward the center to encourage visual interaction (seeing everyone’s face when they are talking). The large stainless steel island contains a 48″ Galley sink, 60″ Viking gas range, and three 24″ under-counter refrigerators by Viking. The remainder of the island contains drawers (no typical cabinet doors) for efficient storage of prep and serving dishes, utensils and spices.

How do I get structural engineering for this plan? Our plans do not include engineering for a specific state, or an engineer’s stamp. This service needs to be provided by a local engineer at the location where you are building.
Where can I get a list of the building materials needed to build? We recommend working directly with local building material suppliers (lumber yards). Most suppliers have an in-house estimator who can create a list of materials, with prices. They will need a copy of the house plan to complete this process.
How much does it cost to build this house? The price to build a home varies by state and country. We recommend that you show the plan to 3 or 4 builders where you are planning to build, and get thumbnail pricing from them. This will allow you to connect with builders, and move forward with your project easier.
Where can I download this plan? Once you purchase a house plan on our website, we will send you an email which contains the links to download the house plans, in all digital formats.
How can I print these plans? The PDF can be printed at most office supply stores and blueprinters.
