The Tristan Home Plan 1311

Choose a House Plan That Captures the View

The view is a major factor to consider when mulling lake house ideas. Hillside walkout designs are great for sloping lots and often will feature large windows are doors oriented to take advantage of a view. Typically these designs offer rear views, featuring windows — often with a sliding glass door for access to a porch or patio — at the rear of the home.

The Goldmoss – House Plan 1481

Multiple gables highlight the roofline of this one-story design. A welcoming front porch provides entry to an efficient floor plan with the dining room flowing into the island kitchen and great room. Double doors access a rear porch with outdoor storage. A private hallway leads to the master suite with skylights adorning the tray ceiling and sun tunnels bringing natural light to the closets. To the opposite side of the home, two bedrooms share a bathroom with a dual sink vanity. The garage enters the home via a mud room and a drop zone designates space for coats, bags and shoes. The pantry is convenient for dropping groceries on the way to the kitchen and the utility room has a laundry sink and built-in cabinetry. A bonus room provides abundant storage or additional living square footage to meet the needs of the homeowner.

If you’re thinking of modern farmhouse open floor plans, find out how interior and exterior farmhouse touches can perfect the look of your new construction home.

Best Modern Farmhouse Exterior Design Ideas

Simple Colors

Outdoor Living and Backyard Trends for Spring and Summer

Outdoor living allows you to enjoy your home and yard in a fuller sense. Rather than a few chairs on the patio, today’s outdoor living trends bring all of the features and functions of your home outdoors. Not only do you get a fun space to relax and unwind, you extend the square footage of your home and add value exponentially. Here are some of the top backyard living ideas to watch.

Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor kitchens upgrade the simple grill station with counters, running water, refrigerators and other amenities. It’s so much more convenient to cook and entertain outside than run back and forth from the indoor kitchen. This is a top desired trend among new homebuyers.
