Translation of  Jennifer Larocque’s original article by Deb Villeneuve

Step-families are a part of today’s reality. With more and more half-brothers and half-sisters among the millions of children throughout, harmonious family life has become a major challenge for many.
Inside the home, the logistics of shared space is of utmost importance. As little as possible must be left to chance in order to maintain harmony within the shared space that answers to the occupants’ needs.
Common living areas must take into consideration the diverse activities that will take place such as reading, talking, listening to music, playing games, and doing homework. Mealtime should ideally bring everyone together to share the day’s events and build the bonds so crucial to a family unit.
Children need their own space in which to interact with each other on their own terms. Although it is not always possible to give each child a separate bedroom, the use of color can help to define each child’s personal space.
 Here are a few house plans that may help you choose the best compromise between space requirements and budget concerns. Drummond House Plans has a collection of models which offer comfortable accommodations for today’s larger families that have features such as an attached garage, home office or media room, a second family room, a minimum of two full bathrooms, a finished basement and more…

This charming chalet offers 6 beautiful bedrooms, 4 of which are in the basement and 2 bathrooms with each a shower. There is a powder room on the main level and a full bathroom complete with a separate shower and double vanity to accommodate the two upstairs bedrooms.
Abundant fenestration, a large kitchen with central island along with a dining room that has enough space to seat 12 and a cathedral ceiling in the fireplace equipped family room enhance the livability of this home. The double entrances offer a large closet for the main foyer and enough room to store skis and sports accessories along with a washer and dryer at the other.
Another pleasing feature of this home is the second living room in the basement and the large covered terrace.

If you are looking for an original, 4 bedroom plan that offers abundant fenestration and the ability to fit on a narrow lot – look no further!
Outside, the striking curb appeal of this home is enhanced by the unique window style with its vertical orientation.
Once inside, the large family room is bright yet cozy with its central fire place and room for seating in whichever configuration suits your family’s needs.

You are searching for a large cottage which can be built on a relatively narrow lot? This model easily fits the bill with its 45 foot width. Let’s examine it more closely.

On the exterior, the different masses and peaks, coupled with a three-sided wraparound veranda, create a look which will certainly not go unnoticed.

In the interior, we first appreciate a 9 foot ceiling throughout the main level, a spacious entrance and two staircases leading to the second level, one of which leads us to a beautiful bonus space and a generous family room with windows over three façades and centered fireplace. Let’s not forget the beautiful dining room at the rear, adjacent to a kitchen equipped with a lunch counter and a large pantry. Directly adjoining, we see a very functional laundry room and independent guest bahtroom. On the second level and in a very well organized fashion, we savour the presence of four bedrooms. The master suite includes a private bathroom and walk=in closet. The three secondary bedrooms share a hall bathroom.

If you are looking for other options, take pleasure in comparing the two models 3830 and 3820 which are similar to this one!

This classic wraparound porch would be a great place for an old-fashioned porch swing, ice cold lemonade and great conversation.

The generous entry features a convenient adjoining guest bathroom. Within, we find a great semi-open activities area, allowing zone tasks without total separation. The front-facing living room is the next stop after the porch swing and is warmed by a two-sided fireplace. Or, enjoy the hearth from the other side in the dining room. For lighter meals and snacks, the kitchen with island is sure to be the hub of the house. A small office and laundry room are tucked next to the kitchen for easy access and convenience.

The upstairs is host to the sleeping level and includes a master bedroom with walk-in closet, two secondary bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom complete with tub and large separate shower.

This slender plan (28 feet wide, not including porches) combines the urban preference for an attached garage with the country charm of panoramic view, rear-oriented interior. Model 2937, from which this plan was inspired, is the source of other similar models whose popularity never ceases to grow.

Inside, an enclosed foyer features a generous coat closet and an adjoining guest bathroom/laundry combination. Entering the main living area, one is greeted by an entirely open-concept floor plan with subtle separation of kitchen, dining and living area. The living room seems even more spacious thanks to a partial cathedral ceiling. Indoor and outdoor areas are pleasantly merged by a ¾ wraparound veranda and adjoining outdoor dining room with charming cupola accent.

The second level is accessed by a stairway directly from the living room, thereby maximizing interior space. Two and three bedroom options are included with the plan. Each version features a master bedroom with walk-in closet and private balcony. The two-bedroom option features a mezzanine to enhance the drama of the living room below.

An unfinished basement is included in the plan and can be developed to suit the homeowner’s needs.
