Our popular panoramic view chalet plan 2939, whose model styles include the reversed version with plan 2939A, 2939B, that has a laundry area on the main floor, and 2939B-V1 which offers a finished basement instead of the second floor. The Vistas collection has just gotten better with an attached garage on plan 2939B-V2 to complete the available variations of this style. Whether you need a vacation getaway or fabulous design for full-time living on a sloping view lot, this one is full of desirable features.

The central theme of all of the members of the Vistas collection is a comfortable entrance foyer, a central island in the kitchen, an open floor plan family area with abundant fenestration and fireplace, the master bedroom and full bath on the main level and a covered porch in the back which would readily lend itself to being screened in for added comfort. The livability of this concept is enhanced because all amenities are within easy reach and positioned to take advantage of the sweeping views from within rooms that boast 9 ft ceilings.

The almost 400 sq.ft. garage of plan 2939B-V2 offers access to the home through an enlarged laundry area or from the walkout basement. The basement benefits from the addition of more than 125 sq.ft to accommodate a generous games room, two additional bedrooms, a bathroom with shower and a mechanical/storage room. With so many versions of this versatile design, one of them is sure to be tailored to meet your needs and lifestyle!

In an attempt to enhance the quality of construction with regards to energy efficiency, economy, Drummond House Plans proposes a new and innovative approach to ecologically and ergonomically designed house plans that include pertinent details on how to achieve an Environmentally Superior home or chalet.
Case in point, plan 2939-ES, whose details include specifications on optimal orientation to inhibit the harsh rays of the sun in the summer and benefiting from this passive heat source in the winter months while taking maximum advantage of the surrounding panoramic view. Learn invaluable ways to plan your landscaping to make full use of rain water, shade benefits of some trees and wind breaking characteristics of others.
Discover the best ways to make use of the ever increasing number of “recycled” construction materials and be assured that your contractor uses the best practices when it comes to recovering the inevitable waste materials from your project.
Environmentally Superior designs include details about construction methods using low V.O.C. (volatile organic compounds) and the installation of the best suited HVAC components to ensure a healthy living environment with optimal air quality and humidity management.
Details of how to reduce energy consumption start with the construction methods used for the foundation and extend to choosing the best appliances and appropriate lighting. Certified fixtures, such as an on demand water heater, can contribute to energy savings by limiting excessive consumption of this costly resource.
To enhance the aging in place aspect of this home, plan 2939-ES is designed for day to day living on the same level. The main floor boasts an entrance foyer, a kitchen with a movable island, a living/dining room complete with cathedral ceiling and place for a fireplace or wood burning stove. The master bedroom is complete with a private bathroom and a laundry area close by.
Another thoughtful aspect of this design is the 4’ wide hallway and a linear staircase that can be fitted with an elevator to access the second floor if need be to adapt the home for a mobility restrained occupant. The bathroom in the master bedroom can be fitted with all of the required security features in the event that this becomes necessary.

Discover 3240-ES, designed with the same concept in mind, we look forward to hearing your comments about this new trend in more livable homes!

While many chalet-type homes have a panoramic view towards the rear, this one has a different orientation with a panoramic windowed façade. Ideal for a sloping lot, with a lot grading up towards the rear of the house, the main level becomes the basement and the second floor becomes the main level.

The basement level boasts a two-car garage, entry foyer, generous storage area, ample laundry/sewing room with drying area, a bathroom and two good-sized bedrooms. A family room enjoys abundant light by day and the glow of a fireplace by night.

The upstairs activity center is open and flowing with a kitchen with central lunch counter, an independent breakfast area, a dining room which can easily sit up to ten and family room with breathtaking cathedral ceiling. The master bedroom has a command view of the panorama, his and hers closets and private bathroom for pleasure and relaxation. Bedroom four could also be used as a den and the whole level enjoys direct access to an impressive wraparound deck at the front and above the garage.

Sloping lots present not only challenges, but opportunities as well! Capture the views with this basement entry home!

The basement proposes a home office with garden doors plus a large flexible space which would be ideal as a games room with media centre.

The main level captures views from the very open activity area, from the island kitchen, dining area, living room or the heart-stopping solarium with windows on three sides and two-sided fireplace on the fourth. For an open-air experience, step onto the oversize deck and enjoy the breeze.

Dual master suites, one on the main floor and one upstairs provide comfort and privacy and two additional bedrooms ensure room for all.

Proposed cladding for this model is in natural tones and materials, for a natural presence.

www.DrummondHousePlans.com - Plan # 2957A

An ideal house for any time of year. Warm and inviting, it does not skimp on windows and offers a remarkable blend of materials, sloping roof, decorative mouldings and angles. The exterior is just a hint of the charm within.

The entrance foyer is appointed with a large storage closet, indispensable in such a home. Passing through, a beautiful living room space, a central fireplace, French doors and a cathedral ceiling, as well as a skylight illuminating the staircase. Further, a large kitchen allows for a table to seat at least 6 with a rear view assured by a projection filled with windows. On this same floor as well, a master bedroom with a partial view to the rear, benefiting from a large storage closet and an adjoining full bathroom.

On the upper level, two other good sized bedrooms will meet the expectations of their occupants. Other lovely appointments include a full bathroom and a mezzanine, always appreciated in a cathedral space for an unimpeded view of the beautiful living room below. A “must” when we talk “chalet”.

Be sure to look at the related models, reversed and including natural materials for exterior cladding with plan # 2957.
