Here’s a stylish modern farmhouse plan with great indoor and outdoor spaces. The generous great room features a fireplace and easy access to both the kitchen and the dining room. Check out the spacious mudroom (with cubbies) near the two-car garage entrance.

The home office includes a private bathroom (with a shower!) and could also be used as a guest room. Upstairs, the primary suite shows off a big shower, an extra-spacious closet, and direct access to the laundry room. Don’t miss the flexible loft or the relaxing screened porch (take a look at these screened porch ideas from HGTV).
