The stairs is my biggest concern too. My husband and I are debating between Plan 4 and 5, but I fell in love with Plan 5's upstairs part. I am so scared I may really not like the stairs in the kitchen of Plan 5 but I s badly want to see it in living color. Sometimes the plans don't help at all. I wish I could take Plan 4 downstairs and put Plan 5 upstairs, because Plan 5's walk in closet is yelling my name.
Is there anyone with a Plan 5 that has pics please?
I live in a plan 4, next door is a plan 5. if you are looking for a HUGE closet (seriously, like a small bedroom), get the plan 4 and put the laundry in the basement...that's what we did and we couldn't be happier!
I would say plan 4 is more open concept- the stairs in the back of the plan 5 are actually nice. you should just go knock on a plan 5's door...i'm sure people wouldn't mind if you took a quick tour
