Tudor House Plans

Tudor house plans have a lot of architectural features that evolved from medieval times when large buildings were built in a post and beam fashion. The spaces between the large framing members were then filled with plaster to close off the building from the outside. This technique provided a lot of architectural appeal as half of the rough sawn framing members were visible from the outside. These days most Tudor style homes are not actually built in the post and beam fashion. The look however is achieved by fastening rough sawn lumber on the outside of the home to create the post and beam look. The space between them is then filled with plaster or stucco. Other features of Tudor style homes are complex and steep roof lines with various gables of alternating heights, dormers, and large sculpted brick chimneys. Because of the various features of Tudor homes, they are generally expensive build. Steep roof pitches, and complex roof systems make the home quite time consuming to frame and more complex to shingle; not to mention the cost of building several sculpted chimneys, the stucco and wood trim and brick wainscoting.
