The Honeysuckle House Plan by C3 Studio for Southern Living!

The Honeysuckle House Plan by C3 Studio for Southern Living!

Isn’t this the most charming plan? Can’t you see yourself spending time on this wonderful porch? I sure can! What you don’t see is a fabulous side porch. This is so delightful. It fits in with exisiting architecture in most older neighborhoods – it’s one of those house plan “gems” that truly hit the mark! Read on for more information…

Queen’s Cottage Plan by Allison Ramsey Architects!

Queen’s Cottage Plan by Allison Ramsey Architects!

I think this garage plan/living space has a cool vibe to it. Love all the windows and the outside porch area. This plan looks like a building that you would find in a historic district in a cool, cultural city. Picture this plan nestled among older homes with similar outbuildings. I think the size of new construction is important when nestled amongst older homes – so important to keep the natural rhythm of the architecture. In the right neighborhood, this would fit so nicely. The upstairs living area is fabulous and very, very livable!

RE-Feature: Evergreen Cottage by Lake + Land Studio – Southern Living Cover!

Evergreen Cottage | Lake + Land Studio | Southern Living {Photo: Brie Williams}

I’ve been following the footsteps of Lake + Land Studio for many years now. Their designs appeal to me. I love living on or near the water. Their plans have a coastal vibe that is both upscale and comfortable. A house that can be lived in yet can easily grace the cover of a magazine as shown above! Wonderful color and design throughout – all information is in the article… (link below).

Glenn Court House Plan by Our Town Plans for Southern Living!

Glenn Court House Plan by Our Town Plans for Southern Living

Our Town Plans does it again with a gorgeous house plan that could easily be built alongside older homes and fit right in. So nice with a front entry porch as well as a side porch. You can enter the garage from the back and then enter into the back of the house. I think it’s nice that you don’t see the garage. Read on to see the rest of this plan…

Red Fox House Plan by Sailer Design

Red Fox House Plan by Sailer Design

A guest house or a home? Well, I think the decision is yours. The Red Fox house plan will fit seamlessly with any of the Sailer Design house plans for use as a guest cottage. How nice to give your friends and family their own space. A well-appointed interior with the bonus of a covered porch is a #winwin in my book. Stylish design for sure.

The Cabot Barn Home by Yankee Barn Homes!

The Cabot Barn Home by Yankee Barn Home

Can you imagine? A stunning setting and a beautiful home – it’s what dreams are made of, right? (Not to mention there are two options for configuration of the upstairs on this plan giving you added flexibility). This is a beautiful plan that takes advantage of the stunning views that surround it. I think I would paint this house black. Seriously, it would fade into the setting. Can you imagine how beautiful it would be in the evening with the warm glow of light coming through the windows. I may even upsize the windows a bit, depending where I lived at the time. I love that Yankee can modify a plan to make it yours!

211 Rose Wood Lane by Our Town Plans!

211 Rose Wood Lane by Our Town Plans

Exquisite. How nice to have a garage with living space above and storage below that looks more like a house (to me). Outbuildings with apartments seem to be all the rage right now. I think it’s incredibly handy if you have a lot of family or friends who come to visit. This gives them their own space (and gives you your space as well). It’s also a great space for kids coming and going from college, or other life escapades – they are close, but also have their own space. I think this plan has a wonderful look to it.

Truoba Class 115 House Plan!

Truoba Class 115 House Plan!

I know I post a lot of coastal plans – probably because we live on the coast, but it’s fun to look at other plans. I happen to love so many different styles of homes, I could go on and on. A Mid-Century Modern type plan is always fun to me. This is a modern plan with a lot of windows (therefore a lot of light!) – it’s a dream.

The River Place Cottage Plan by Watermark Coastal Homes!

River Place Cottage Plan SL1959 by Watermark Coastal Homes for Southern Living

This is an iconic coastal house plan – with exquisite detail and an exceptional floor plan. The exterior looks like a home that was built long ago and maintained in the best possible way. Can you imagine how pretty this house must be in the evening with warm lamps on? I adore the screened porch on the side of the house with a stunning fireplace. #itswhereiwouldbe

The Ramble Farmhouse (SL2052) by Beau Clowney!

The Ramble Farmhouse (SL2052) by Beau Clowney

What a house, right? The Ramble is a great name for this plan. Those steep rooflines absolutely make this house over the top! This plan has a nice front porch, a large back deck as well as a stunning screened porch with a fireplace – what a dream! There are great images via the links below…

Brookfield Colonial House Plan by Classic Colonial Homes!

Brookfield Colonial House Plan by Classic Colonial Homes!

What a great plan if you have a lot of company, or if you have a parent or elderly child living with you. You have your space, they have theirs and you can get together in the common spaces. How perfect is that? I love the lines of this house, the steep rooflines, the windows and the breezeway between the two spaces.

House Plan CA-02-2026 by LIVEWELL Home Design!

House Plan CA-02-2026 by LIVEWELL!

I love the porch on this home as well as the side screened porch. The perfect spot to hang out on a nice day! The windows are a great pick making this home fit in if it were built in an older subdivision. I think they fit this home nicely. #windowsareimportant Great lines to this home.

Duck Blinds House Plan by Allison Ramsey Architects!

Duck Blinds Plan C0050 by Allison Ramsey Architects

Sweet as can be, right? This is a small house, but it’s far from tiny. This plan lives much larger than what it looks. Don’t you love that it has so much charm? New homes often are lacking charm compared to homes that are older, yet this one has the best of both worlds. Charm + Efficiency = Woohoo!

Shiloh Creek House Plan by Lifestage Home Designs!

Shiloh Creek House Plan by Lifestage Home Designs for Southern Living

Porches… especially porches that wrap – make a stunning visual statement and provide areas for entertaining, relaxing, reading, the list goes on. A porch can make a house feel more like a home. Especially when you have part of the porch screened and part unscreened. The best of both worlds.

Raleigh Retreat House Plan by Lake and Land Studio!

Raleigh Retreat (Back) House Plan by Lake and Land Studio

What a great livable plan, especially for a retreat! The back porch is stunning and where I would be most of my spare time. The front is equally as sweet with a nice porch and inviting design. This is a great plan if you are on water, in the woods or in any beautiful setting where you can take advantage of the views.
