Modern House Plans Modern house plans offer clean lines, simple proportions, open layouts and abundant natural light, and are descendants of the International style of architecture, which developed in the 1920s. Flat or shallow-pitched roofs, large expanses of glass, strong connections to outdoor space, and spare, unornamented walls are characteristics of Modern house plans. The lot is often incorporated into the Modern style home, turning outdoor space into alfresco living rooms. To see additional Modern style house plans try our advanced floor plan search. Farmhouse Plans Farm house plans are as varied as the regional farms they once presided over, but usually include gabled roofs and generous porches at front or back or as wrap-around verandas. Farmhouse floor plans are often organized around a spacious eat-in kitchen. Farmhouse floor plans are similar to Country plans in their emphasis on woodsy informality. Farmhouse style plans derive from practical, functional homes often built by the owners. To see more farmhouse plans try our advanced floor plan search. Tiny House Plans Our Tiny House Plans are usually 500 square feet or smaller. The tiny house plan movement, popularized by Jay Shafer, reflects a desire for simpler and lower cost living. Tiny houses are often mounted on trailers and can be moved and (depending on local codes) may not require building permits. Our Tiny House Plans can be used as a low-cost, low maintenance home or vacation cabin and can be grouped into a small compound.
