Praire Style House Plans
Prairie Style house plans Click on the Image to view this floor plan. Early in the 1920's a group of architects developed the Prairie style of architecture. The most popular among them was the well-known Frank Lloyd Wright. Prairie style homes are simplistic in their square design. Boxed shapes at varying heights and depths give the home a unique form. One of the characteristics that are most obvious with the Prairie style house plans are the shallow pitched hip roofs with large overhangs. The large overhangs protect the home's interior from direct sunlight; large casement windows however provide plenty of daylight for a comfortable interior. Read more

Affordable Modern Style
Modern Home Design There seems to be a lot of talk about Modern Design recently -- it's making headlines in the newspaper, it's in magazines at the checkout line, and it's on the television (you can't even turn on HGTV without hearing about it). Of course, it probably isn't all that surprising; we do live in a very modern period of time. What might be surprising is that modern design actually began back in the early 1900s. Although there have been numerous different movements and schools of design, Modern style generally focuses on strong geometric shapes. Polished surfaces are a predominant feature -- as are large windows, neutral palettes, and certainly state-of-the-art amenities. The Plan Collection has a wide variety Read more
