Modern House Plans are always a bit controversial. Is this style modern or contemporary? Many use these two style terms interchangeably, making it confusing on where to draw the line. We have concluded that , “modern” is a style of its own, while “contemporary” can encompass many different styles that are current or en vogue. We view modern home design as timeless and iconic, like the work of Eames, Wright and Saarinen. Historically speaking, modern was “form follows function” of the Bauhaus, open floor plans and clean lines. Modern is always forward thinking and innovative as it started as a radical opposition to popular decorative movements of the early 19th century Mark Stewart Ultra Modern Design includes crisp, sharp geometry and almost always will be accompanied by warm material use that creates a dynamic tension and contrast that is always energetic and comfortable at the same time. We have produced this collection of unique house plans that share all of these characteristics and are affordable to build at the same time. If you have any questions about these home design or floor plans, don’t hesitate to call or email us. We can also design Custom Modern House Plans if you have an idea in mind!

We also recognize the many residential design styles that include shed roofs, open beams with large glass surfaces and generous use of stone and brick. “Modern Ridge” NW Modern House plan # MM-2434-TL The thing that separates Northwest Modern House Design for us is the consistent use of organic materials and colors.

Old English Style House Plans Old English homes were much smaller and more streamlined then the large Tudor-style country residences that appeared in the late 19th century that echoed medieval English styles . Characteristics commonly incorporated included the steeply pitched roof and cross-gables, large stone or brick chimneys often at the front of the house, and small-paned bands of casement windows. Entry Facades were often front-facing gables with a swooped roof that was steep and straight on one side and carefully curved on the other. Doorways were often arched or half-round with ornate hardware and exterior lighting. We have designed many homes with Old English design characteristics, and will be continuing to curate our portfolio to bring you more of this time honored home design style.

The arts and crafts movement started it and today’s trends continue to blur the line between Prairie and Craftsman Home Design. Why not just design homes with the best of both styles? Lets call them Prairie/Craftsman House Plans. The results can be remarkable! When designed carefully and with a trained eye Prairie/Craftsman House Plans have distinct qualities that not only speak to both styles but break new ground. Our collection includes plans that may fall in either or both of the two style categories and they have crossover differences that ease the solid edges of either style. These House Plans will always have a lower pitched roof with generous eaves. Prairie/Craftsman Home Designs often blend nicely into a neighborhood of more traditional homes, and give the homeowner just enough “Prairie” to feel right while still fitting in. A Craftsman Home Design with a low pitch and wider eaves is considered a Prairie/Craftsman in this collection. Likewise a Prairie Design with natural organic exterior elements such as stained siding and the occasional gable end will be found in this collection.

Skinny House Plans I remember the first Skinny house I saw, and I thought it was a prank. Skinny homes are a relatively new happening, but have emerged to solve a growing need in many inner cities. Not long ago the idea of a single family home of only 15 feet wide was unimaginable. Zoning, land costs and the desirability of close to downtown neighborhoods have created this style. Many cities now encourage this type of housing to increase density without sprawl, or adding significant new infrastructure. Skinny Home Designs Much can be done in a footprint of 15-20 feet wide. Many clients are pleasantly surprised to see how much light, shared space and open feel can be achieved in Skinny House Plans. This is a growing collection that has no end in sight. The skinny house movement is spreading and bringing much value and increased density to already existing infrastructures throughout the United States and Canada. We have these adorable light filled and affordable designs available from Traditional styles all the way to Modern Skinny House Plans.
