Building a home in Tennessee? Check out our collection of Tennessee house plans below. Tennessee home plans come in a wide range of architectural styles, including ranch, Craftsman, farmhouse and more. It all depends on what you want and require. First, consider where in Tennessee you plan to build. For instance, if you plan to build in an area where nearly every single home offers a farmhouse feel, it may not be wise (or, even allowed, per the HOA) to build a bold contemporary/modern home. Likewise, consider your plot of land. For example, if you have a narrow lot, a sprawling Ranch home plan may not work. But don't despair! Considering offers tens of thousands of designs, we're sure to have a blueprint that works for you, your lot, and your neighborhood. Plus, don't forget that almost any home plan can be customized to meet your exact needs. Please note that some locations may require specific engineering and/or local code adoptions. Be sure to check with your contractor or local building authority to see what is required for your area.

Settling down in Virginia? If so, offers many house plans that are sure to please!** In terms of architectural styles, Virginia pretty much runs the gamut. If, for instance, you plan to build a home in Southern Virginia, you may want to consider a colonial, country or farmhouse home plan, as these designs tend to be popular in this area. On the other hand, if you plan to retire to Northern Virginia (which can be thought of as a "suburb of Washington DC"), just about any architectural style is possible, depending on your exact neighborhood. Furthermore, if you plan to build near the water (such as Virginia Beach), you might want a house plan that offers piling (or pier) foundation and a fun, beachy look and feel. Then again, if the western part of the state is calling you, a more rustic type design might be just what the doctor ordered. **Please note that some locations may require specific engineering and/or local code adoptions. Be sure to check with your contractor or local building authority to see what is required for your area.
