Awhile ago, we featured this craftsman-inspired home plan on our homepage. Plan #149-1454 is a really great 1 1/2 story home, but what made it unique was the fact that it had been built on national television.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition", it is ABC's Emmy Award-winning reality TV series that brings entire communities together in service to provide a deserving family with a new home and a new chance at life. Since early 2004, the Extreme Makeover Team has been traveling the country in search of families that are in serious need of a new home. The family is then given a week-long, all-expense-paid vacation, meanwhile, the Extreme Makeover Team joins with volunteers from the community to build the new home before the family returns on Day 7.
Allow me to introduce you to this Prairie style inspired plan. It isn't exactly a new home design, but I guess that doesn't really matter. Lately we've had a lot of people asking us about house plans from ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, so here it is. For those of you who are fans of the show, you'll probably recognize that our Plan #149-1121 (Extreme) was used for the Westbrook family in Lawton Oklahoma.
This is a very stylish home that draws heavily upon Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie Style, but the thing that really makes this home stand out is that it is wheelchair accessible. You see, two members of the Westbrook family are confined to wheelchairs, and this house was designed to make them feel at home.
The workshop is a great addition, and you're going to love the open great room and dining area; the fireplace really is a nice touch. But I'm not going to sit here and tell you all about it you should Check it Out yourself!
As an interesting side note, Mark Stewart (the creator of Plan #149-1121) also drew up two additional house plans for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Click Here to see his entire collection!
