From the first “folk” houses built of mud, grass, stone, or logs in the 1700s to today’s modern and stylish version, the farmhouse remains one of the most picturesque and charming portraits of Americana. While more practical than ornate, today’s farmhouse home plans don't sacrifice the elegant beauty that comes from modern design.

Inspired by traditional country homes, this style has visual appeal and evokes a feeling of hearth and home, tranquility, and peace that makes them popular and timeless. With the rustic look being a hot trend on the architectural landscape, a growing number of home buyers are building, restoring, upgrading, and preserving farmhouses.

Features of the Farmhouse Floor Plans

The term “Farmhouse” speaks more to the home’s functionality than its form, as the old fashioned farmhouses were built to match the large scenic plots of land on which their owners lived. Constructed out of necessity in the beginning, they were built to be sturdy, straightforward, and purposeful. Today, modern farmhouse plans – with their comfortable, inviting, elegant modern designs – are the perfect choice for anyone building on a large lot or open space, allowing the home to become the true focal point of the property.

Here are some other common characteristics of farmhouse style homes: 

  • These homes can be a one- or two-story structure with simple, vertical lines and oftentimes a gable roof. Bedrooms are generally on the second floor, although some houses may have master suites on the first floor.
  • The signature feature of the farmhouse is the wide wraparound covered porch – marking the transition from the outdoors to the indoors. During the early days of the farmhouse, porches were more than a place to sit and admire the scenery, relax after dinner, and socialize; they were a space used to kick off the dirt from a day’s work in the fields before entering into the sanctuary of the home. Today’s porch remains a center of outdoor entertaining and family activities. 
  • There’s typically a clear division in the floor plan between formal and informal areas. When you walk through the front door, you enter into a space perfect for entertaining guests or greeting a family member. The kitchen, bedrooms, and staircase are typically located at the back of the house. 
  • Large, spacious kitchens were a must for old fashioned farmhouses in the U.S. The “heart of the home,” the kitchen, is still the place where the family gathers for meals, special occasions, and conversations. Today’s designs usually come with an expansive cooking area and equally roomy countertops – ideal for preparing a hearty and delightful meal.
  • Wood frame construction and wood siding are traditional. Vinyl siding has become more popular, however.
  • Fireplaces, then and now, also provide warmth and comfort.
  • Both traditional and modern farmhouses can include a parlor and a family sitting room.
  • Dormers are typically found on the second floor to allow natural light to fill the space.

We carry a wide selection of options in this architectural style, including everything from simple farmhouse plans to luxurious family homesteads. Browse through the beautiful designs and find the home of your dreams!

The Farmhouse Steps Into 21st Century Chic


TPC author Rexy Legaspi
