History of California Modern Design

Function was as important as form in Mid-Century designs, with an emphasis placed specifically on targeting the needs of the average family. Examples of residential Mid-Century modern architecture are frequently referred to as the California Modern style.

Although the Case Study House Program is considered by many to be the official start of modern home architecture, there is one home in particular built an entire decade before that combined traditional building materials with lines that exemplify modern design. That is the Fallingwater house, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Imaginative New Floor Plan Concepts…For The Most Exciting gjConstructs Ever Built

In designing a new line of gjConstructs Homes we have taken an important step forward in creating plans which meet your each and every requirement…have one custom designed for your pattern of living!

Plan 101CM

California Modern

Main Floor 1743 Square Feet
Enclosed Atrium Option 205 Square Feet
Sun room 224 Square Feet
Loft 105 Square Feet

Families with older children are going to love the 1848  square feet of living area offered here. Homes with small bedrooms are fine for families with young children. But once the kids get into their teens, a pair of 9 x 9 foot bedrooms found in smaller homes isn’t going to do it.

Your living room, with its dramatic fireplace, is the show room of your gjConstructs design. A wall of glass presents an ever-changing mural—provided by nature!

For added privacy, bedrooms are completely separate from living areas. The master bedroom suite has its own private bath, vanity, dressing room and patio.

From the world’s most efficient, most beautiful kitchen, you serve meals directly to the dining area, the atrium, sun room, or patio. Designed with you and your family’s needs in mind your kitchen comes with just the right complement of modern appliances to fit your cooking and entertaining style. Select a butler’s pantry option.

The at grade level entry, extra space between kitchen cabinets, wider halls and wheelchair accessible powder room make this home the one to keep for a lifetime.

The porch plays an important role in keeping the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Another much-needed but missing feature the mud room conveniently located yet hidden from view.

Natural passive ventilation is achieved by the chimney effect. Just open the windows to cool down this home.

The designs have any number of green features available for your choice. Pick a green roof, install a water recovery system, rough-in or install alternate power sources, radiant floor systems and insulated envelope far exceeding current day energy star standards.

Lot sizes:
Most municipalities require a minimum of a 4″ side yard.
With a double car side by side garage the total width is 58′ – 0″ less the 2′ bump out 56′-0″which would in most instances require a 64′ – 0″ yard width. The double car garage could be moved and additional 2′ to get the home on a 62′-0″ yard width.
