Trend Watch House Plans - Donald A Gardner Architects

Trend Watch House Plans by
Donald A. Gardner Architects

As families grow and change, living space needs may also change. Up-to-date house plans designed for today's families must be flexible enough to keep up with these changes, to accomodate a rapidly changing family dynamic. Whether you are looking for a floor plan with two master suites, a home design with a three car garage or the ultimate utility room, you can find your house plan here in our selection of "Trend Watch" designs.

Donald A. Gardner Architects meets the house plan needs of today's families through extensive market research and customer surveys. As residential design evolves along with the lifestyles of home buyers, we continue to evolve our plan portfolio to keep pace with these changes. As new home designs are created, our "Trend Watch" selections will continue to grow, making it easier than ever to find a house plan with "timeless trends" such as Jack and Jill bathrooms, luxurious master suites or a Keeping Room.

Single Living Space Plans Single Living Space Plans

For today’s busy families, a more streamlined floor plan can make life a little easier. Our homes that feature a single living space can mean less to clean, while opening up square footage to be used for other, more functional, spaces.

One Dining Area Plans One Dining Area Plans

Some families today find that formal entertaining spaces are no longer the necessity they once were. By creating a single dining space in the heart of the home, gatherings become more intimate, while the remaining square footage can be adapted for use as a study, utility room, or other more functional spaces.

Keeping, Morning, Hearth, Family Rooms Floor Plans Keeping/Morning/Hearth/Family Rooms

Recent trend watchers in the house plan industry are noticing that the living room (and sometimes the great room) can feel too formal for every day family activities such as watching a movie or relaxing with a book. With this trend, the need for a casual family living space has developed.

Three Car Garage Floor Plans Three Car Garage

With the popularity of owning multiple cars or recreational vehicles, the three-car garage plan has become much more common in today’s home designs. Many homeowners need more storage, and use a third garage bay to hold lawn or exercise equipment.

House Plans with "E-Spaces"

Busy families need a home plan that not only emphasizes their personal style, but is also convenient and functional.

House Plans with Butler's Pantry Butler's Pantry

For the homeowner who enjoys entertaining or the family who thrives on convenience, the butler's pantry is a versatile space, typically positioned in a short hallway between the kitchen and dining room. Many butler’s pantries are outfitted with cabinets, small sinks, wine coolers or even a second dishwasher. Convenience and elegance are combined for the ultimate entertaining experience. Used as an out of the way prep space, a spot to hide dirty dishes after a meal, a display space, or for extra storage, the butler's pantry is an asset to any home plan.

House Plans with Cathedral Great Rooms Cathedral Great Rooms

A cathedral ceiling can add elegance and spaciousness to any floorplan. Even the most casual rooms in a house plan are taken to the next level with a soaring ceiling. These high angled ceilings often reach two or more stories, and are typically featured in the gathering rooms of a house plan -- such as the great room, living room or family room. Donald A. Gardner Architects’ selection of floor plans featuring living rooms with cathedral ceilings offers a broad range of styles and square footages. From modest cottages to grand, executive estates, the growing Don Gardner portfolio contains over 500 home plans that feature cathedral ceilings in the great room.
