Farmhouse designs combine country character and modern living.
Rustic style is red hot. Timeless farmhouse designs feature country style, relaxed living, and indoor-outdoor living.
Today's modern farmhouses also show off sleek lines, contemporary open layouts, and large windows.
Of course, porches remain an important part of this welcoming style. Typical modern farmhouse floor plans include, besides that all-important porch, a second story with gables to add light to the upstairs bedrooms. Interior layouts vary widely, accommodating today's desire for flexible floor plans. Typically, large footprints make farmhouse designs best suited for families who want a lot of elbow room.
