Multiple Designs and Exteriors

A variety of exterior and interior design elements can make a similar floor plan...a completely different home. 

Farm House Style

Front and back porches span the width of this modern country farmhouse. The living and dining room provide an open space with cathedral ceilings (and loft).

Craftsman Style 

Most homes in the Craftsman style have porches with thick square or round columns and stone porch supports. The homes typically have a low porch, larger eaves and decorative brackets.  Casings & beams on the porch and inside the house are often exposed and are stained or painted contrasting colors.
 Below: Open porch gable option with classic "Starburst" beams/brackets and planking/ship-lapped soffit detail. 

Bungalow Cottages

Cottages offer one story or a story and a half, with low-pitched roofs and wide, overhanging eaves. There is a large porch and often a stone chimney with a fireplace. The efficient floor plans include a central living room and little or no wasted hallway space. With most living areas on one floor, bungalow house plans offer easy living for the elderly or for those doing household chores.  The bungalow style was noteworthy in American architectural history, because it made good design affordable for regular folks.
