Modern Prairie House Plans

Are you looking to purchase a set of house plans to build your new home?


Some of you may be seasoned pros when it comes to finding what you want on an online house plans website. On the other hand, The Plan Collection might be your first taste of online stock house plans. Whatever your situation, it's plain to see that home plans can come in hundreds of different styles and thousands of different models; it can be quite overwhelming! Let me introduce you to one of my favorites.


Have you ever heard of Frank Lloyd Wright? Not only was he recognized in 1991 by the American Institute of Architects as "the greatest American architect of all time",[1] he was also one of the primary developers of the Prairie Style of architecture.


Prairie Homes are noted for their long, low dimensions -- meant to help the homes blend in with the flat landscape of the Midwest (where the Prairie Style originated). The roofs are, as a rule, either flat or slightly hipped with long overhanging eaves. They use organic colors and materials to assimilate themselves with their environment. The design is to be a perfect mix of form and function; simplicity and craftsmanship.


Since the beginning of the 20th century, this school of architectural thinking has inspired thousands of architects and home designers alike. Just check out AA5555-0405. This is one of our most popular homeplans of all time. Although it doesn't necessarily uphold each of the design principles specified by Frank Lloyd Wright, it is clear to see his influences on the overall design.


The Plan Collection has over 200 Prairie Style House Plans with more being added all the time. Friendly sales representatives are always happy to help you find the house plan that's right for you and your family. Check it out!
