Farmhouse home plan design comes from the simple spirit of the owners that once built these homes. Because of the regional characteristics of this design, there can be many different variations. Thus, Modern Farmhouse homes are as differing in design as the old, regional farms they once looked over. That being said, these homes usually have gabled roofs and generous porches at front and back, or as wrap-around verandas. Farmhouse house plans are often organized around a spacious eat-in kitchen. Woodsy informality is also a staple of a Farmhouse design. View Elements Farmhouse Floor Plans Collection here.
