When building a new home, much of your focus is on the home’s interior. Where do you want to put the stove? What color flooring would look best? What material for the countertops would serve you well? While these are all important and valuable considerations to make, one factor you’ll also want to consider is the home’s exterior. A house’s curb appeal is just as important to your enjoyment of the home and its future potential resale value as anything you do with the interior. Here are some ideas for curb appeal that will help you choose the right house plans and make the right building decision.
We are working on a collection of Urban Farmhouse designs to meet the growing trend!
The Coleraine 1335 (Modified with an Urban Farmhouse exterior)
An Urban Farmhouse is a modern interpretation of classic Farmhouse features. Characteristics of an Urban Farmhouse include, board-and-batten siding, metal roof accents, neutral colors and an open and modern floor plan. Unlike a traditional Farmhouse, an Urban Farmhouse will likely be constructed on smaller or narrower lot. For this reason, our collection offers designs that will work well in Urban or Suburban neighborhoods.
Showcased below is a Design in Progress and a few conceptual designs that are on the drawing board. Later we will show you how you can add Urban Farmhouse features to existing plans in our portfolio.
