Just as the name suggests, Midwest House Plans evoke the images and visuals common to the rolling plains of the region. It is common for homes in the Midwest to use neutral earth tones that resemble the grain fields and sprawling landscapes of the states in which the style was born. Many of these houses fall into the Craftsman or Prairie style, which was popularized by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright during the early decades of the 1900s. The homes reflect a desire for simpler times, which is evident through the use of continuous horizontal lines and clean, solid edges. Midwestern states plans are available as single-story or two-story floor plans, commonly featuring a minimum of three bedrooms and two bathrooms, reflecting the abundance of open space common to Midwestern region. As with Craftsman-style homes, plans typical to the Midwest states also place an emphasis on simple aesthetics with a traditional feel, making gables and dormers a common occurrence.

These houses also frequently use natural building materials in the construction process, which can impart varying appearances. Some home plans may feature stone facades, either with real or composite materials, to create a timeless appearance, while others may use more traditional siding and roof tiling that incorporates the types of wood common in the area. Interiors may include a Great Room or similar open floor plan living space, re-creating the feeling of openness that one would feel out on the prairies. Many of these plans also include high ceilings, frequently focusing on the main living and dining areas, well as large kitchens that can accommodate many modern luxuries and appliances.

Our Midwest house plans are popular among those living in the Midwestern U.S., including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin
