We would recommend House Plan Gallery without reservation!

House Plan Gallery has been a pleasure to work with on designing the plans for our new home. They have been available to answer any and all questions that my wife and I have had. 

Stephen made several relevant suggestions to us to help us through this process. My wife and I are contracting our house ourselves and the team at House Plan Gallery has been there to help direct us on each phase. 

We did make several modifications to the original plan we selected and House Plan Gallery was ready willing and able to make it happen.

What Makes Ranch House Plans Great for Families?

What Makes Ranch House Plans Great for Families?

What makes ranch house plans the perfect choice for growing families? As it turns out, there are a variety of reasons these are wonderful homes to raise a family in, including their size, layout, and functionality.

Ranch homes first appeared in the United States in the 1930s when an architect named Cliff May created the first California ranch-style house. Before long, this style was popular throughout many parts of the world. Over the years, they’ve always remained one of the primary styles of homes you’ll see in this country, alongside craftsman homes, colonial, French country, farmhouse, and other styles. 

It isn’t hard to see why this is such a popular choice for homeowners. Ranch house plans are known for their long and low profiles, and they tend to have plenty of windows – often floor-to-ceiling. Typically, these homes are single stories and have attached garages. Ceilings tend to be vaulted, and these homes are built with a variety of siding materials, including stucco, brick, wood, and stone.

If you’re stuck deciding what kind of house plan is right for you, let’s go over some of the standout features of these homes that might make them the right choice for you and your family. 

Unique Features of Country House Plans

Unique Features of Country House Plans

What makes country house plans so special? Depending on who you ask, it could be one of several things, from their welcoming exterior to their rustic appeal, comfortable design, or anywhere in between.

Some of the words you’ll hear to describe country homes include rustic, warm, handsome, elegant, and stately. Even small country house plans can incorporate all of these elements, and a beautiful design is achieved with minimal square footage. No matter what size home you’re looking to build, a country house plan could be the way to go.

Before we get to some of the unique elements that make country homes a popular choice, let’s go over some of the different types of country style house plans you’ll have to choose from.

When you hear of country homes, it could be referring to a few different styles. This includes French country homes. Although these homes got their roots in the French countryside, French country homes are an incredibly popular option for Americans who are building their dream home. These homes are often the most spacious of the country home styles, as they are reminiscent of palatial homes used for weekend getaways by French royalty in the 18th and 19th centuries.

You may have also heard of low country house plans — these homes are built with the “low country” of South Carolina in mind rather than the French countryside. They often have added elevation as protection from the elements, along with durable metal roofs, and other features dictated by the climate. 

Craftsman House Plans - Bonus Room Ideas for Families

Craftsman House Plans - Bonus Room Ideas for Families

Have you decided that your dream home includes a bonus room, but you’re not quite sure exactly how you’d make the most of that space? Then this is the post for you!

Today, many craftsman house plans - small or large - often include bonus rooms. These homes have plenty of other design characteristics that draw so many people to this style, including covered front porches, overhanging eaves, pillar-lined entryways, and natural materials. Although the craftsman style dates back to the 19th century, it has become an increasingly popular choice for new home builds in the last 5-10 years, leaving plenty of homeowners wondering about the best way to utilize their bonus room.

Bonus rooms are typically located above the garage or sometimes in an attic. They’re found in two-story homes, and in many cases, they’re the only room on the second floor. In the past, bonus rooms may have gone unused or underutilized simply because homeowners weren’t quite sure what to do with them. But here’s the good news: gone are the days when bonus rooms are unused, awkward spaces with no designated purpose!

There are so many ways you can maximize this “bonus” space in your home. To help you achieve this goal, here are some bonus room ideas for your craftsman house plans that might be right for you!
