You don't have to live in the South to enjoy the gracious hospitality and outdoor living of a Southern house plan.* Architectural details run the gamut from the narrow dimensions and layered porches of Charleston row homes to Neoclassical influenced designs with stately columns. Modern farmhouses are a contemporary choice. They all have one thing in common: a shady porch designed to enjoy balmy weather, capture breezes, and keep the inside cool. Our collection of Southern house plans features front porches, back porches, wraparound porches, verandas, lanais, galleries, and terraces. Low Country (or Tidewater) style often features a raised foundation and a wraparound porch. Whether you’re looking for a classic Colonial cottage to blend into an existing neighborhood or a modern farmhouse for a rural lot, you’re sure to find a place to sit and enjoy your lemonade.
*This collection may include a variety of plans from designers in the region, designs that have sold there, or ones that simply remind us of the area in their styling. 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.
