Need to build a home in the northwest? If so, you’ve come to the right category! Northwest house plans typically offer rugged materials and organic shapes. In the below collection you’ll notice Craftsman house plans, Bungalow floor plans, and rustic, lodge-like mountain designs—all of which have a natural affinity for the Pacific Northwest. Contemporary/modern house plans—or, more specifically, green home plan designs—also work well in the northwest due to the region’s passion for sustainable design. Note that one of the best things about green house plans is its general affordability. A green house plan tends to save on building costs upfront due to its smaller size. Likewise, a green home plan has the potential to maintain low energy costs, be it through extra insulation, more-efficient appliances, the use of natural daylighting techniques, or again, simply due to the plan's compact size.
As you explore the collection below, consider your daily routine. For example, if you regularly cook a big, healthy dinner for your family, select a home plan featuring a big kitchen with modern amenities, like a walk-in pantry, double ovens, a spacious island, and/or an open sight line into the living, family or great room. Furthermore, if you’re planning to age in place in the northwest, consider selecting a northwest house plan that’s either all one level or that features its master suite on the main level (so stairs can be avoided later in life).
Dream Home Source is proud to present this collection of Northwest house plans, incorporating the work of local designers as well as homes that reflect the spirit of the area. Please note that while the below house plans have the potential to work beautifully in the Pacific Northwest, some locations may require specific engineering and/or local code adoptions.
