Customize Any Design: Redistribute Square Footage

The final piece in our exciting customization series is here! You have followed along for months as we shared examples of size and product alterations, as well as changing levels. In this final installment we will cover redistributing square footage. For many clients, the design concept they love doesn't always fit perfectly with the layout they had in mind, here are some ways past clients have redistributed a plan's square footage to fit their needs on every level of the home.

Original Rockpoint

Roanoke Valley Modified Example


Following the natural grade of their Southern Indiana location, this client decided to reallocate some of their loft's square footage towards a daylight basement. In addition to changing the layout, the couple also altered their design from full handcrafted to mountain accent.

Plan Alteration Highlights:

  • Reduced Loft Space
  • Added a Main Level Bath
  • Added an Unfinished Basement

Original Crested Butte

Crested Butte modified example

Often, when clients look to add square footage of their home without expanding the footprint, their designer will suggest adding a level. For this family, they took the essence of the design they loved, added over 600 sq.ft., and modified it by moving bedrooms to the basement as well as creating room for specialty spaces like a rec room and wine cellar.

Plan Alteration Highlights:

  • Reduced Main Level
  • Reduced Loft Space
  • Added Basement Level
  • Mirrored Original Floor Plan
