Embrace a Simple Lifestyle With Simple House Plans From Don Gardner

Basic home plans work great for a number of homeowners. Some choose these to be their primary residence, spending less on the size of their home so they can invest more in the quality of the lifestyle they create inside. Others choose these when they downsize during retirement. Still, others will opt for basic home plans to serve as secondary residences or vacation cottages. A basic floor plan also makes a great starter home, and when you build from scratch you can build in some of the elements you need and want to personalize the space. With Donald A. Gardner Architects, all of our simple house plans have the modern flair you want in a newly built home.
