Contemporary Homeplans
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.

A Contemporary, Ranch Style Home Plan
house plan # ADI30-336 The Practical, Ranch style home will always be one of the more popular home styles. When it comes down to it, it's just hard to go away from the simple, affordable, and practicle nature that a ranch style home offers. This plan style has evolved over the years.

Vacation Plans and More!
Vacation Plans? This is House Plan GHD-2026. It has a contemporary cabin feel, and it would make a great vacation home; but GHD-2026 would meet the needs of a full-time family just as well. Imagine walking up to this home. From the front, it appears to be a very neat and simple ranch-style rambler, but upon entering, you are sure to be amazed by the two story living room below. This loft/entry area offers the potential for some very good times indeed, but just you wait until you check out the lower level! At 27'-0" x 12'-6", the kitchen can only be described as "behemoth." It is so big and offers so much cupboard space, but that's not all. There is a cozy little sun room nearby that is absolutely perfect for Saturda Read more

Modern House Plans at their BEST!
Back in 2007, we started selling a remarkable Modern House Plan by Dan Tyree known simply as "The Barbados." Right from the beginning, we knew we had something phenomenal on our hands. Seemingly overnight, the Barbados became one of our most popular house plans. People absolutely fell in love with its unique style and thoughtful layout. The only problem with the Barbados (if you can call it a "problem") is that it's a bit larger than what the average homeowner is looking for. People seemed to be emailing us almost every day, asking if the plan could be made smaller. Unfortunately, reducing the square footage of a house plan can be a very expensive and involved process; however, Dan Tyree was able to strike gold again -- with Read more
