Contemporary House Plans
Click on the Image to view this floor plan.

Throughout the late 1960's and 70's contemporary plans became quite popular. Contemporary styling is a combination of several styles and are often multi level homes. Some of the characteristics are: · Garage placement on the front of the home for cost effectiveness. · Shallower pitched roofs that often extend from a higher level down over the lower level. · Simple, clean lines that are cost effective to build but attractive. · Windows are large and sometimes trapezoidal following the roof pitch in gables. · Exteriors are a mix of materials like wood, brick, rock, siding and stucco. · Vertical ornamentation in simple patterns. Contemporary homes are still being built across the nation and have been a very popular style in tract home developments and custom home neighborhoods alike.
