The Hamptons, situated north of New York is where the wealthy escape to the beach for summer. Hampton’s style house plans are defined by casual, relaxed beach living but done in a classic and very sophisticated way. The look is bright and breezy, plenty of natural daylight with discreet window treatments to really let the light pour in. [caption id="attachment_14559" align="alignleft" width="150"] Elegant Hampton’s House Plan M-2503cr[/caption] Mark Stewart Home Design began working in this style in the mid 2000’s, and predicated the now very popular use of this style in new construction. The early Mark Stewart Hampton’s Style House Plans featured fully detailed gable roofs with return eaves, shingled siding and neat trim white exterior accents. More recent works include hipped roof versions, and in the custom design category, some wonderful shabby chic versions. Timber floors throughout are all part of the look, either in a very dark chocolate brown or pale and bleached. Keep this look fresh and interesting by mixing old with new. Go antiquing for a few rustic items like old timber dining chairs and pair them with a new plain oak table. Retro kitchen canisters, old shop signs and bottles add charm and fun while contemporary art, lamps and furniture pieces keep things very young and very now.

[caption id="attachment_21628" align="alignleft" width="306"] Jeni Moderna-Modern House Plan M-5440-J[/caption] 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 design as timeless and iconic, like the work of Eames 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 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 unique, Modern House plans that share all these characteristics and are affordable to build at the same time. Be Modern…… Be Free…….. build a Mark Stewart Modern Home
Northwest Modern When we talk about Northwest Modern House Plans we are including homes with either low sloping hipped roofs, in conjunction with flat roofed porches and accents. 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. [caption id="attachment_47908" align="alignleft" width="235"] “Modern Ridge” NW Modern House plan # MM-2434-TL[/caption] The thing that separates Northwest Modern House Plans for us is the consistent use of organic materials and colors. The generous and creative use of natural materials and earth tones in conjunction with otherwise Modern, Contemporary or Prairie Styles begins to define the Northwest Modern Style for us. Northwest Modern Home Design has evolved from its zero point in about 1972-75. Once again homeowners and builders had their fill of traditional design styles and began demanding something new that was a bit out of the box. It is our guess that this evolution continues going forward and we will be adding to this portfolio often.
Old English House Plans 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.
