Maison Grande-Digue House second floor plan features two bedrooms under a sheltering roof with central full bath under a roof dormer. Attic areas would be accessible for additional storage. As mentioned previously, these homes were originally built with finishing of the second floor as an option.
The exterior gable end walls continue the double 2x4 stud walls from below. Casement windows are chosen to fit into the stud spacing to reduce framing. Final finishes and detailing to be selected by owner.
The main building component is framed with parallel chord trusses to allow for high level of insulation.
