    For example, you can have any floor plan you want in a LHBA design. But, the tips they give in class can make a difference if your plumbing is $500, or $5,000+.
    That's one of the areas i have actually been looking forward to is plumbing Eric. One of my least knowledgeable areas, the second is electric. I grew up a jack of all trades, lumber yard work, framing, insulation, and a little sheet rock work. But not really any plumbing and electric.

    3"in 1 ft is what is called 3/12 pitch roof. I think you can build a flat roof as far as code... for shingles you'll want > 4/12. I think metal too. 6/12 is common. Steeper is possible, but more difficult (6 /12 is about as steep as you can stand on w/o roof jacks.)

    Eagle, I keep liking everything you do. Just for the sake of mindwidening, why not try three things and see where it goes.

    1... Wherever it says 40', change that to 35' and refigure accordingly all other figures.

    2... Try swapping the bedroom and bathroom.

    3... Try swapping the kitchen and dining room.

    4... If there is going to be a second floor bathroom, position it directly over the lower one.
    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.

    Rckclmbr428,

    Someone who has raised three children to adulthood in slightly less than 700 square feet will take exception to that statement.
