It covers the full spectrum from traditional to contemporary designs and includes favorites such as craftsman, country, ranch, mid-century modern, and luxury.

This style encourages a return to simple living without giving up current essentials such as open concepts or large kitchens with islands.

The floor plan layouts and sizes available in this collection appeal to a wide range of needs. You’ll find starter homes great for young families, single-story residences for empty nesters, and two-story plans that exceed 2,000 square feet for those looking to upgrade in size.

Amenities are just as important as curb appeal. These plans feature modern amenities and practical solutions that make life easier, including:

  • Expanded mudroom
  • Main floor master suite
  • Large kitchen with one or two islands
  • Outdoor living area that easily transitions indoors
  • Home office

Open floor plan designs and flex space are also among the most in-demand trends among aspiring homeowners, and with good reason: these solutions meet the evolving needs of today's residents, who often rely on their homes for relaxing, entertaining, working, and studying.

We encourage you to browse our vast selection of new home plans. To see the latest additions, sort by "newest first" or use our advanced plan search functionality to pinpoint your dream home.

How do I find the best house plans?

Finding the best house plans is largely subjective. It depends on what you’re looking for and what your budget is for starters. That being said, the best house plans are usually grouped together on reputable sites like The Plan Collection, where you can find new designs and time-honored designs by well-respected architects and architectural firms.

How do you plan a new house?

Once you’ve selected a plan and builder, and your builder has secured all necessary permits, the steps to planning and building a new home are as follows:
  1. Prepare the site
  2. Pour or lay the foundation

A new style that’s becoming very popular as a single-family home is the Barn Style or Barndominium.

What is a bungalow?

A bungalow is a Craftsman architectural style-type of home common to urban areas that is either a single story or one and a half stories. Bungalows tend to have a compact footprint and an open floor plan that allows the living spaces of the kitchen, dining area, and living room to flow into one another. This feature tends to make constructing a bungalow less expensive and more efficient than other designs. Bungalows usually have a low-pitched roof and a wide front porch.

What are the most popular layouts for house plans?

Among the most popular layouts for house plans are Craftsman style plans and the Modern Farmhouse style plans.
