Dream Home Designs by Style

One Story Plans
One Story Plans

The ranch home is a uniquely American one-story floor plan. Designed to stretch out across a wide-open lot, the ranch floor plan first appeared in the 1930s and by the early post-WWII years, ranch-style homes and ranch floor plans filled the suburbs, adding the open feel of the country to the city. Don't let the single-story nature of the ranch home fool you. Ranch floor plans have a wide range of square footage options, floor plans, features, and benefits. The efficient use of space offers a floor plan with as many bedrooms and as much living space as two-story houses.

The word 'cottage' means different things to different people. Some people think of a quaint little home filled with charm and others think of a sweeping, rambling style that's great for relaxing on vacation. Either version of the cottage or something entirely different can be created by our architects.

Country Home Plans
Country Home Plans

A typical Country house plan includes a front porch, dormers and a roof line parallel to the street. Our Country home plans include these classic elements combined with modern floor plans and up-to-date amenities. Country house plans may be ranch or two-story plans, and work equally well for rural or urban settings.

Craftsman Home Plans
Craftsman Home Plans

With roots in the American artistic movement known as 'Arts and Crafts,' the Craftsman home plan is a late 19th and early 20th century style. Because of their lasting influence and attention to detail, Craftsman home plans are still extremely popular today. Materials often include stone, rough-hewn wood, and stucco. Many Craftsman house plans have wide front porches across the front, supported by columns. Other Craftsman house features may include large gables, shed dormers, decorative brackets or timber detailing. We feature Craftsman style home plans that are a modern interpretation of the original Craftsman movement.
