Country Farmhouse plans are as varied as the regional farms they once presided over. Born on hundred-acre spreads in rural America, family-friendly Farmhouse plans fit right in with suburban lifestyles. Resembling the romantic antebellum Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, and Italianate styles in form if not in detail, these practical homes tend to be more functional than fanciful with boxy shapes, gable roofs, full-width porches, and clapboard siding.
Built to be a gathering place for family and friends alike, two-story Farmhouse floor plans often feature a spacious country kitchen with a cozy fireplace and plenty of room for a big rustic table. Their wood-frame construction and decorative details exude a warm homey feel. Ideal for those with an appreciation for rural culture, strong connections to the past and the land they will build upon.
