This luxury lakefront farmhouse plan by Visbeen Architects is all about connecting with the outdoors. Check out the open-concept kitchen that sports two large prep areas: one a large island with a cooktop and a fun rounded seating area, and the other connecting to the screened porch. There's also a "lake room" on one side of the screened porch and a den on the other, providing you with a variety of spaces from which to enjoy the view while working or relaxing.

This design continues to delight with a lavish upstairs primary suite, which sports dual vanities, a separate (corner) tub and shower, a special dressing area, and a roomy walk-in closet. Also note how the laundry room lives upstairs, near all of the bedrooms for maximum convenience.

Finally, be sure to note the optional guest apartment above the garage, which opens up even more possibilities.

The kitchen reigns supreme in this new Craftsman cottage plan. Note how the kitchen island and peninsula provide an abundance of counter space, a major perk for anyone who regularly prepares meals. What's more, the kitchen is open to the dining area and the fireplace-warmed great room, both of which present a cathedral ceiling for ultimate airiness. Other call-outs include skylights in the primary suite's bathroom, a study that be used as a guest bedroom or home office, and the vaulted ceiling in Bedroom #2.

This two-story contemporary plan offers four or five bedrooms. If you think you'll need extra garage storage, go with the four bedroom option. If you think a fifth bedroom would be better for your family, go with option #2, which adds a fifth bedroom in place of the garage storage, and also expands the powder room into a three-quarter bath. Take note: the vast majority of our house plans can be customized. So, if you like this plan but would prefer some other configuration, give us a call at 1-800-447-0027.

Additional highlights of this contemporary plan include a mudroom with a built-in bench with hooks, a kitchen island, a pocket office, an upstairs laundry room, and a skylight in the primary bath.

This five-bedroom, four-bath floor plan presents two stories of living space and fabulous farmhouse curb appeal. What's more, it's only 47' 8'' wide, making it potentially perfect for a relatively narrow lot. Enter through the garage and note the laundry room (for dropping off dirty clothes) and the three-quarter bath that sits right around the corner. The kitchen and dining area are open to the coffered-ceiling great room, which boasts a fireplace and views of the screened porch.

When you look at this floor plan you may not be able to take your eyes of its super-chic main-level primary suite. Note the bedroom's airy vaulted ceiling, the tub-centric bath with two sinks and a separate shower, and the walk-in closet that's so big it sports its own island and a separate safe room area.

Also note how the main level blends modern and traditional design features. The contemporary kitchen is open to the great room, but the plan also offers a formal dining room, as is generally seen in more traditional homes. Don't need a formal dining room? No problem. Just change that space into something else—perhaps a home office or a den.

Other cool call-outs include: strategic placement of the walk-in pantry and laundry room next to the garage entrance, front and rear porches for outdoor living, and an upstairs game room.

Working with a wide lot? This stunning modern farmhouse plan might be perfect for you. It offers a wrap around porch, beautiful curb appeal, an open floor plan, and a split-bedroom design.

Inside the primary suite, note the vaulted ceiling, the dual vanities, and the walk-in closet with an island. One more bedroom resides on the right side of the plan, and two additional bedrooms and a game room live upstairs.

On the other end of the "lot spectrum," this simple country plan is only 30' 4'' wide, making it potentially perfect for a rather narrow lot. Given its small and rustic look, it could also work quite well as a vacation home. Inside, note the bartop kitchen peninsula, which is open to the vaulted-ceiling, fireplace-warmed great room. The main-level holds the primary bedroom and bath, while the upper level boasts an extra bath and an optional bunk room. Finally, note the design's relaxing porches.
