I am looking to build a small 2 story house with a daylight basement (around 650 square feet or so per level). I have searched through ten's of thousands of plans online as well as many houseplan books and magazines. The problem is that hardly anyone seems to have plans for a simple saltbox type house plan, a simple rectangular share, no weird multiple roof slopes. I really just need a simple to build no frills 2 story house. My leading contender for a plan right now you can see at
I would like to have a few more choices though. Does anyone know of a site that specializes in this type of simple two story houseplan? The main reason for the single roof pitch and the sideways pitch I perfer is due to the fact I can get up to eight feet of snow a year and don't want it all falling from the roof in front of my door. I will be using manufactured trusses too, so roof load for the plans is not really a big deal, as long as I can substitute manufactured trusses in the plan. Any thoughts or links?
