American colonial homes were originally built with steep roofs, rows of small windows, and a massive central chimney to hide smuggled teabags. Design your own colonial abode with today's Groupon: for $399, you get an architecture base plan from Classic Colonial Homes, Inc. (up to a $5,300 value).
With a focus on traditional New England architecture, Classic Colonial Homes, Inc., creates historically styled, predrawn home plans to fit every client's budget and style. Choose one of the design firm's preexisting base plans, ranging from the multilevel Concord Saltbox, boasting two stories in the front and one story in the back (a $3,000 value) to the simply-styled Classic Cape (a $2,000 value). The New England Farmhouse plan (a $4,450 value) can meet the needs of a growing family with 3,072 square feet of living space, up to six bedrooms, an eat-in kitchen, cooking fireplace, and an attached sun porch. Meanwhile, the Brewster Federal plan (a $3,700 value) can serve as a stately country retreat or a historically inaccurate backdrop for Battle of Gettysburg reenactments.
Although not valid with this Groupon, a lead designer can customize plans to suit each individual's taste and needs (additional fees may apply); customers can also opt to use Classic Colonial Homes' preferred builders program, which uses a collaborative approach to provide hassle-free budgetary guidance and construction-phase planning. Accompanying exterior trim packages are also available from Classic Colonial Homes at an additional cost.
