Country Style House Plans Something about these country house plans brings us home to our roots, where we feel comfortable, safe and secure. Mark Stewart Country and Americana Home Designs: bringing you back home. Country style homes are a bit of an update of the popular “Colonial style.” The colonial home is influenced by 18th century colonists bringing European styles with them. They’re probably most recognizable for featuring two windows on either side of the front door and five windows on top, with the middle window directly above the door. Country houses aspire to be warm and inviting. They generally have wide porches, shutters, dormers, and wood detailing. The Modern Country Style House Plan that is seeing a resurgence now has fuzzy ties to the Modern Farmhouse Movement. These homes evoke simpler times, bring back great memories, feel permanent and generally are structurally straightforward to build. Modern touches, color schemes and technology have brought this style into current day home style vernacular.
