What are traditional house plans?   Click on the Image to view this floor plan.   Traditional homes are some of the most common styles built throughout the United States. These floor plans are designed to accommodate the American way of life. Traditional homes are kind of a mix of several other styles but there are some basics that are usually consistent throughout traditional designs: Simple, often hipped rooflines. Brick or stucco exteriors are most common. Traditional plans are often single level floor plans with steeper roof pitches though lofts or bonus rooms are quite common. Covered porches. Open foyers.

Christmas Lights and Old Pipes
      The holiday season is so wonderful! People seem to be a bit more cheerful, Christmas music can be heard while strolling around the grocery store, and all of the decorations just make the world a cozier place.   The other day we woke up to a blanket of fresh white snow here in Northern Utah, so that night I decided to go on a little ride with my family to look at all of the Christmas lights on people's houses. It was so fun! We drove through an older section of town where the majority of the homes were built before 1950. It never ceases to amaze me how even the smallest, most simple houses from that period can still find crafty little ways to stand out. They all seem to ha Read more

Some experts also describe this as “transitional” or “new traditional” style.   It is perhaps the most difficult architectural design to describe because it is an amal Read more
