Timber Home Living's 3rd Annual Floor Plan Design Contest Votes PrecisionCraft's Montclaire a "Best Plan"

MERIDIAN, ID--(Marketwire - January 30, 2008) - The Montclaire timber frame home plan receives the "Best 5 Plans" Award in Timber Home Living's 3rd Annual Floor Plan contest. This award marks PrecisionCraft's 12th design award in 2 years, making PrecisionCraft and its design firm the leader in log and timber home design.

Created by Mountain Architects, PrecisionCraft's experienced team of timber frame home designers, the Montclaire floor plan is praised for its creative design in Timber Home Living's April 2008 issue. Donna Peak -- Timber Home Living's Managing Editor -- writes:

"How can you not love a plan that takes so many outstanding modern amenities (four fireplaces, anyone?) and packages them with English manor-house style? From the exterior alcove, you enter the impressive foyer, which, with its gently arced staircase and adjacent formal library and dining room, is sure to make a genteel first impression. But move just beyond and a true 21st-century home unfolds before you. The spacious great room leads the way toward a kitchen layout that's totally in tune with the times, boasting a cooktop island and ample bump-out pantry, not to mention a cozy breakfast nook. The nearby laundry/mudroom is perfectly placed to make unloading groceries from the three-car garage a breeze, plus it offers a family coat closet, leaving the guest closet to, well, the guests. The huge master bedroom and bath, with its private covered patio and hot tub, make this suite sumptuously sweet. Upstairs, a half level gives you the extra room you need without the fuss (or expense) of a full second story. And the L-shaped loft is large enough to be divided into specific zones for reading, shooting pool, whatever activities tickle your fancy. The only thing this plan is missing is you."
