Plan Styles
Eco-slender, ultra versatile
Much like a Murphy Bed, our Murphy is a wondrous bit of efficiency and flexibility. A slender 24-foot width allows this model to be slipped onto infill lots, into eco-communities or larger lot as a guesthouse or mother-in-law suite with the added benefit of a two-car garage!

A generous covered entry provides protection from the weather. Inside, find a generous coat closet and bench seating. Just beyond is a powder room, easily accessed from the garage or main entry. An interior door is conveniently located at the base of the stairs, so it is a breeze to whisk groceries straight up and into the kitchen. Due to virtually no halls, the upstairs is able to include two bedrooms, a full bathroom, country kitchen, living room, laundry and an enjoyable screened balcony, with grilling platform.

Rendered with a simple finish this model can easily be dressed up to suit any neighbourhood. The many possibilities presented by this plan make it one of our perennial favourites!

    Just curious on what all comes with this plan. Truss layout/style? Roof plan? Roof pitch? Over hang? Slab plan? I would guess that I have to still have the trusses, and slab engineered.

  2. David Parkin 6 January 2015

    How much will it cost to build this model in Rigaud, QC, J0P1P0. ?

    • Customer service 6 January 2015

      Good day Mr. Parkin and thank you for taking the time to write

      Although we do no actual construction, the ballpark estimate to build this home in Quebec (Canada) starts at around $190,000.

      This estimate is based on professional grade materials and includes ceramic in the foyer, the kitchen and the bathrooms with hardwood flooring throughout the common areas and carpet in the bedrooms. The kitchen cabinetry is wood grain melamine. This construction estimate to build in Quebec is for a turn key project.

      The cost of the land and its excavation, taxes and hook-ups to municipal or other services is not included in the calculation and it is highly recommended to consult local contractors and materials suppliers to get a better idea of the actual cost to build in your area.

      I hope that this provides some helpful information and I invite you to contact me if you have any other questions or comments

    I was looking at The Murphry W2933 and I was wondering could the first floor wall be extended from 8 feet to 10 feet tall? Then take the depth of the house from 42 feet to 54 so a master bedroom and bath could be added to the back of the home?

    I had a friend who bought plans from a company like this and had a nightmare getting approvals from their municipality. Without an engineer or architect from their state. What do you guarantee with purchase?

    • Customer service 15 June 2010

      Dear madam,

      Thank you for your interest in Drummond House Plans. We guarantee that our plans are up to Canadian and US building codes. However, you will need to verify if the chosen plan will comply to local regulations with the city where you plan to build. We do not provide engineering services, therefore you will need to find a local engineer to stamp the plans if the city request it.

      Please contact us again if you need further information.

      Best Regards,

      Customer Service Department
