Timeless farmhouse plans (sometimes written "farmhouse floor plans" or "farm house plans") feature country character, relaxed living, and indoor-outdoor living.
Today's modern farmhouse plans add to this classic style by showcasing sleek lines, contemporary open layouts, and large windows.
Of course, porches remain an important part of this welcoming style. Typical modern farmhouse 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 plans best suited for families who want a lot of elbow room.
