4 Bedroom House Plans
As lifestyles become busier for established families with older children, they may be ready to move up to a four bedroom home. 4 bedroom house plans usually allow each child to have their own room, with a generous master suite and possibly a guest room. Empty nesters may also choose to remain in a larger home to allow room for house guests as their extended family grows, or as elderly relatives come to live with them. Some four bedroom homes include in-law suites or apartments. Living on one level is still possible with a rambling ranch home, but four bedroom house plans are often two stories. The master suite may be on the main level or in an opposite wing from secondary bedrooms for privacy. Since they are primarily designed with families in mind, four bedroom floor plans will often have open floor plans with plenty of spaces for the family to gather as well as retreat for homework and downtime. Bonus rooms may be found above the garage or on the lower level to expand as needs demand.

Decks, patios, and porches give plenty of room for outdoor living. Sometimes this style features elements of a Swiss chalet, or the timber of a log cabin. Generally, an A-Frame floor plan features one large open space with living areas on the main level and a loft above for sleeping quarters. The ceiling can be left open to the rafters, further accentuating the A-Frame’s stylistic details, or closed-in for a more traditional look. An island kitchen adds contemporary appeal. Whether you decide to build by the coast or on a mountain top, your new home will be inviting, modern and economical.

Cape Cod House Plans
Cape Cod homes are the epitome of post-war American housing and were built prolifically throughout suburban neighborhoods to accommodate growing families. Beginning in the 1940s and continuing to today, modest Cape Cod homes have been built with simplicity and function in mind to evoke Colonial style. These homes are usually one story with a side-gable roof and little embellishment. Sometimes a small front stoop with a gable roof extends from the home to welcome guests and provide shelter from the elements. Although modern Cape Cods are very popular today, this style of home took shape in the early 18th century to suit the long New England winters. Their association with the New England coast also makes them perfect as vacation cottages, sitting nicely on a lakefront lot or by the sea. The floor plans are flexible, as the simple rectangular shape can accommodate a number of interior configurations, both traditional and more modern open layouts.

Chalet House Plans
Chalets originated in the Alps and are distinguished by exposed structural members called half-timbering that are both functional and serve as decoration. Chalet designs gained popularity in the mid-19th century throughout the United States, borrowing from a romantic ideal of contemporary Swiss architecture. The roof of a chalet is low-pitched with wide, overhanging eaves. This architectural element influenced Craftsman and Prairie house styles later in the early 20th century. There is almost always a front gable featuring highly decorative woodwork at the fascia board. The upper floor of a chalet usually projects beyond the story below, with a balcony at the front of the house for leisure and entertaining. The balcony often has a balustrade that is constructed of a flat, cut-out panel, adding to the gingerbread charm. This style of house was traditionally painted on the exterior with murals or faux architectural elements representing quoins, shutters, or ornamental design around windows and doors. Further interest may be added with vertical board-and-batten siding. The Chalet style would make the perfect mountain home for its use of natural materials and allure of the grand Alps. The floor plan of Chalet style houses tends to have less square footage, as they are typically used for vacation homes. That being said, two or more stories are possible with bedrooms on the upper floors that open to the balcony and maximize fairy tale views. The first floor could have an open plan with a central fireplace warming the interior and a spacious kitchen for entertaining guests. Provide 360 degree views with a spacious rear deck to complement the second floor balconies. For styles with similar rustic appeal, check out our collection of log homes, cabin house plans, and A-Frame designs.

Cottage House Plans
Affordable to build and full of charm, cottage homes are prized by many as the perfect vacation home or the quintessential style for building on a small lot. Usually one story, and with quaint details such as decorative woodwork, interesting windows, and a varied roofline, cottage house plans present a welcoming façade and a cozy interior. They are well-suited for the coastline, narrow urban lots, or in a suburban neighborhood of smaller traditional homes. Many cottage floor plans have a country look and feel, with front porches and dormers. Other cottage plans reference classic English cottage style, complete with large chimneys and charming shutters. Some modest cottage designs work beautifully for building in a rustic area, like Canada’s cottage country. Cottage home plans often have varied exterior materials, with a mixture of stone, wood siding, or shingles to break up wall surfaces. A small front porch may welcome visitors with a turned balustrade, thin columns, and a front gable roof. Casement windows offer cottage charm, or add decorative detail with leaded glass panes or stained glass windows. The roofline may be hipped, pyramidal, or gabled and often is broken up by attic dormers. These dormers provide additional space to expand upstairs later. While cottage house plans are usually one story, some may have a second floor or a bedroom tucked into the attic. The living space in is relaxed, often with a fireplace as the focal point and nooks provided for an eating area, reading room, or window seat. Expect quaint details to continue to the interior, such as a beamed ceiling, stonework on the fireplace, and transom windows above doorways. Maximize cottage charm with a patio at the rear, extending to gardens beyond with a picket fence as the exterior focal point.

House Plans with Master BR Upstairs
Master bedrooms located on the second floor enjoy certain advantages: they’re generally more private, are positioned to take advantage of a view lot, and are close enough to kids’ rooms to keep an eye out. This configuration also lets you keep the footprint of the house compact, ideal for building on a small lot. Just be sure to consider accessibility in the future – perhaps by choosing a house plan with an elevator or one with two master suites (you can switch to the downstairs one later).

House Plans with Master Suite on Main Level
Home designs that feature the master down (also known as main-level master house plans) are full of convenience and accessibility. The easy access of a master down location (or main-level master) is better for aging in place as homeowners grow older. Master down floor plans will also allow homeowners to reside on one level once the kids have grown up and moved out, while guests (or the kids when they visit) have a private place to stay upstairs when they come to visit. Master down floor plans and home designs also help save on energy costs. Homeowners can choose to only heat or cool the main level of the home since that is where they do most of their day-to-day living – resulting in cheaper energy bills.

Pools can be as varied as the homes they accompany and often have a unique style to complement the home; landscaping will further define a pool's style. A Mediterranean home may have a curved pool surrounded by palm trees and a cascading waterfall. More contemporary or modern homes may make use of clean lines with a simple rectangular pool. Florida homes often have a pool and patio with a permanent cover that keeps out insects and leaves. Consider designing for an outdoor kitchen, full loggia and fireplace for cool nights. Extend the swimming season with a hot tub or a permanent enclosure that keeps temperatures warmer. If your budget will allow, build a pool house that complements the style of the main home and has space for showering, storing pool supplies, or overnight guests.

House Plans with Wraparound Porch
Wrap around porches became popular in the late 19th century during the Victorian Era, a time when leisurely activities became more acceptable due to advancement in technology and reduction of manual labor. The upper class built large, rambling homes with wrap around porches to accentuate the asymmetry of the Victorian facades. More modest farmhouses also utilized wrap around porches, which were an extension of the land beyond. Porches are a means to enjoy the outdoors while being protected from the elements, and were a welcome relief from hot summers throughout the country. Without central heating and air, they were often a necessity in particularly warm regions such as the Southeast. Today's wrap around porches still serve the utilitarian need for shade, but they are becoming almost an extension of the interior home. Owners display their decorative style and treat the porch as an outdoor room. Outfit your porch with fans, unique light fixtures, porch furniture and artwork that suits your own personal style. Wrap around porches utilize stylistic details in their construction to define a house's style. Farmhouse floor plans (or Farmhouse style house plans) may feature a porch with simple round or square columns extending to the porch floor, with a balustrade between the columns. Queen Anne homes are more likely to make use of thinner round columns, gingerbread ornament and delicate spindlework that set the style apart. A wrap around porch can extend partially beyond the façade, or often fully wraps the house and joins with a rear deck. Interior doors are often conveniently placed. Whether a modern-day luxury or a historical necessity, porches have always provided respite from the duties of house and land. They allow neighbors to visit more easily and are a welcome breath of fresh air.

Narrow Lot House Plans
Urban areas tend to have smaller, narrow lots because land is in short supply. Homes may be built quite close together, but sometimes have surprisingly deep rear yards with plenty of room to roam. Square footage can be maximized by building three stories high or more. For those with a tight budget, start small with future plans for expansion either at the rear or with additional stories. You can build any style of home, whether a quaint Victorian, cozy Bungalow or traditional Cape Cod on a narrow lot. Let exterior details define the style and play up the vertical orientation with thin columns, narrow windows or a steeply pitched roof. A small front porch might add curb appeal to a narrow lot house plan, as will a variety of building materials. Side porches add extra outdoor living space. Narrow lot house plans (or house plans for narrow lots) have the possibility of being more affordable due to the smaller lot, but this could be offset in a pricey in-town neighborhood. The square footage of a narrow lot house plan can vary depending on the number of stories. A small cottage or bungalow may be only one story in 1,000 square feet or less, while a rowhouse (sometimes written row house) could be 3 stories or more with 4,000 square feet to boot. Many narrow house plans are designed with rear-loading garages for a lot with an alley in back. The interior space of a narrow house plan must be planned well for the most efficient layout. An open plan is still possible, especially with several stories where vaulted ceilings and numerous tall windows can be employed to open the space. Because the home is narrower and may only be two rooms wide, sunlight is maximized for better energy efficiency and light can penetrate throughout the house. Employ tall narrow windows from floor to ceiling and site them on the southern side of the house to warm the home in winter and provide natural light in summer.

Sloped lot house plans and floor plans generally include a walkout basement. Walkout basements offer many advantages. For example, they maximize a sloping lot, create another level of indoor-outdoor living, and add extra square footage (without sacrificing the footprint of the home).

Small House Plans
Our collection of small house plans and floor plans (or small home designs) features home designs that are 2,000 square feet or less (including tiny homes!). For the most part, small house plans and floor plans are cost-efficient and builder-friendly. Less square footage equals less money. Yes please! These home designs may be small, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t luxurious. Spending less money on square footage grants homeowners the ability to splurge on other things – like countertops and finishes. Many of our small house plans and home designs showcase excellent outdoor living spaces. Outdoor spaces add extra square footage and more living space. You will find plans with porches (even wraparound porches), patios, decks, lanais, courtyards, and more. Small house plans and floor plans come in all kinds of architectural styles.

Split Level House Plans
Split-level home designs and floor plans (also referred to as split-level house plans) gained popularity in the 1950s. These cool designs are relatives of the ranch style house plan. Split-level home designs boast horizontal lines, a landing at the entry that leads upstairs or downstairs, and a low-pitched roof. The exterior of split-level home designs typically showcases a minimal façade that is sleek and contemporary. With three levels of living space, split-level home designs and floor plans make it easy to carry on different activities, while maximizing space on smaller lots. These popular home designs usually feature a landing at the entry (that opens to the living, kitchen, and dining areas) that leads upstairs (to the bedrooms) and downstairs (to the basement).

Vacation House Plans
Most people have a preferred vacation destination, whether it is the coast, mountains or city. Few of us can have it all, so choose your favorite spot to relax and there will be a house plan waiting to fulfill your dream of a vacation. Coastal homes will often feature abundant outdoor living space and numerous windows to maximize views and take advantage of the mild weather. You may want a charming cottage at the end of a rocky bluff, or a sprawling Mediterranean style home with beachfront access. There will surely be guests no matter what the style, so choose a floor plan that can accommodate a crowd and makes entertaining easy. The kitchen should be close to the rear patio and open to a great room for effortless access to the bar-b-q and pool. A home in the mountains will be quite different, possibly more rustic and built with materials found in nature. Choose a log cabin plan and build with locally harvested wood for a more sustainable site. A-Frame homes are a contemporary, folk style of home reminiscent of a Swiss chalet that would be perfect in a mountain setting or by the sea. The shape is that of a triangle, hence the A-Frame, with a steeply pitched roofline sloping almost to ground level. Draw nature in further by using local exterior materials such as stone and wood. Vacation house plans should maximize efficiency so time away will be spent relaxing. Choose a kitchen that is spacious and has all of the necessary appliances, but keep it simple so cleaning does not become a priority. Make clever use of seemingly dead space by creating nooks and crannies for private retreats. You may have unused attic space that could become a loft, or simply tuck a window seat within a bay for the perfect vacation reading spot.
