Farmhouse Plans & Farm Home Plans
Farming families were normally large, and required a sufficient number of bedrooms. In addition, this home design style typically incorporated a formal dining and living room for holidays, and special occasions. The exterior facade of the home is designed with nominal detailing and embellishment, and a shingled, (moderate to steep) pitched roof, and wood siding. The covered front wrap around porch is a large part of the character of these country farm style favorites.
Farmhome plans are similar to that of a country home. However, this home design has a unique distinction that sets itself apart from the rest. The common country home normally has a wrap around porch and a gable that faces the front entrance of the home. A farmhouse is the same, with the exception of the gable. The front of the home will have the gable in the front but also gables on one or either side of the home.
Although the traditional farm houses are sometimes considered to be country homes, they can also be found among New England & Victorian homes as both can display classic characteristics of this old style time honored favorite.
