Kariboo is the perfect modern carport apartment with living spaces on the upper floor, and plenty of covered parking and storage below. The flat roof is slightly sloped and capped with metal to provide snow removal. The balcony can be fitted with radiant heating for snow removal as well. The lower floor mechanical space provides easy installation of the heating and cooling ducts in the floor and roof truss system. The exterior features commercial style windows and cable railing.
This plan is designed with concrete basement walls and a concrete slab on grade at the parking and storage. The upper walls are wood framing with r19 spray foam insulation. The floor system is pre-engineered wood trusses. The roof is standing seam metal, a plywood deck, and pre-engineered wood trusses. The exterior is finished with stone and stucco over a waterproof barrier and wall sheathing.

What’s Not Included
Revisions to the Plans
A local home designer or architect can take the digital files, and make changes to the house plans, including room size changes, wall construction, and more.
Engineering & Engineer’s Stamp
The plans do not include engineering for a specific state, or an engineer’s stamp.
I recommend having a local material supplier or lumber yard generate a material list for you.
The price to build a home varies by state and country. I 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.

The CAD files are in .dwg format, which can be opened using AutoCAD, or other CAD programs. These files can also be viewed online using the AutoDesk Viewer. https://360.autodesk.com/viewer
The sketchup file is the 3d model of the house. This file can be viewed using the free version of Sketchup or Sketchup Mobile Viewer
