Planning to build a home in Texas or the South? Discover home plan designs with just the right amount of country style.
There’s nothing cookie-cutter about these house plans. It’s all about the details, whether that means a two-sided fireplace in a living room, a large guest suite that can host friends and family, or simply an elegant and interesting roofline. Your home won’t look like every other one on the block.
One thing that many of these homes have in common: impressive outdoor living. You don’t have to have a huge lot to create a home with seamless indoor-outdoor living. Narrower footprints can wrap around courtyards to create private oases in the side yard, perfect for placing pools. Front porches give traditional curb appeal to many designs, especially those with country or farmhouse influences, and invite you to relax with a glass of lemonade while waving hello to the neighbors.
You’ll also find many house plan designs with photos in this collection. That means that you don’t just have to imagine how your home will look; you can check out excellent imagery of how it’s actually been built. See the smallest details, from fireplaces to master bathtubs. Daydream about how you’d decorate the living room the same – or differently. And remember, you aren’t limited to how the home looks in the photos; in fact, some changes may have already been made from the plans by the owners (give us a call if you’d like help figuring out any differences). Our modification service can make all kinds of tweaks, from big to small. But it’s nice to have a starting place to envision the final home.
