This modern farmhouse home plan from Donald A. Gardner Architects features a stylish façade and a family friendly floor plan. The white board-and-batten exterior is complemented by metal roof accents and black frame windows. The welcoming front porch provides space for a bench or rocking chairs.
Thoughtfully placed skylights and sun tunnels brighten the interior while front and rear porches extend living outdoors. A cathedral ceiling tops the great room and island kitchen, visually expanding the open living space. A fireplace and built-in shelves enhance the great room while a skylight brings natural light into the kitchen. The spacious dining room is topped with a box tray ceiling and enjoys a buffet nook for dinner parties.
