2 Bedroom House Plans
Home plans with two bedrooms range from simple, affordable cottages (perfect for building on a tight budget) to elegant empty nests filled with upscale amenities. It all depends on what you need. Small house plans with two bedrooms can be used in a variety of ways. One bedroom typically gets devoted to the owners, leaving another for use as an office, nursery, or guest space. Some simple house plans place a hall bathroom between the bedrooms, while others give each bedroom a private bathroom.

2 Story House Plans
House plans with two stories give you many advantages. Building up instead of out presents a more cost-efficient way to build, since land is expensive (especially near a popular metro area). When you’re dealing with a tight lot, it can get tricky to fit all your living spaces within narrow dimensions if you’re limited to one story. But when you build up, the sky is (literally!) the limit. 2 story house plans often fit nicely on a narrow lot, thus maximizing your costly land purchase. Looking to build a home on a scenic or waterfront lot? Home with two or more stories make excellent use of your location with a higher vantage point.

A-Frame House Plans
A-Frame house plans appear to be nothing but roof, with all living space contained beneath a steep gable. The steeply sloping roof is a stunning stylistic element as well as a functional design, allowing heavy snow to slide to the ground in the cold winter months. A-Frame home plans feature oversized windows in the gable ends, creating dramatic appeal and allowing light to reach the interior. Inside, an A-Frame floor plan is typically one-and-a-half stories, with a cozy half-story, loft, or storage area at the peak of the home. The exterior is sheathed in shingle and natural wood, often with a dramatic deck wrapping around the outside of the home. With their dramatic views, casual living spaces, and decks for outdoor entertaining, A-Frame designs are great for mountain, lake house plans, and beach homes.

Affordable House Plans
The house plan designs in this category are all great choices for building on a budget. Not only are these homes smaller, which leads to significant savings in land, materials, and labor costs, but they trim away excess by streamlining the home's footprint with fewer foundation corners, reducing the number of purely decorative add-ons (like lots of dormers), and maximizing layout space inside. That leaves you with money to spend on the upgrades you really want -- like flooring and kitchen cabinets -- or simply to save.

Chalet House Plans
Swiss-inspired Chalet house plans were introduced to America in the mid 1111's by architect Andrew Jackson Downing and became popular in the northeastern United States, where their picturesque style fit in perfectly with the cold and snowy landscape. While Chalet floor plans are usually a straightforward rectangle with a front-facing gable roof, they are generally embellished with rustic ornamentation. Hand-hewn timber serves as both structural elements and decoration in the form of brackets, balustrades, and bargeboards, giving them some resemblance to Victorian house plans. Porches and balconies are common elements of Chalet designs. Usually warmed by cast-iron wood-burning stoves connected to high stone chimneys, Chalet home plans invite cozy gatherings of friends and family over a steaming cup of hot chocolate. Idyllic in rugged mountain settings or ski resorts, the rustic "Heidi" house provides a wonderful old-world alternative to modern A-Frame design. Uncommon and distinctive, Chalet house plans are a charming choice for both vacation homes and year-round living.

Cottage House Plans
Architectural pattern books first appeared in America near the mid-19th century promoting cottage home plans and remained popular through the early 20th century (though they still survive today in the form of online house plan websites like Dream Home Source). They are often credited with the rapid spread of architectural trends throughout the country, and, as their target audiences were average American homeowners, they were particularly effective at popularizing modest vernacular styles like small cottage house plans and designs for bungalows. Cottage style house plans are characterized by their individuality, though there are a few common denominators such as compact and sometimes irregular footprints, one- or one-and-a-half-story profiles, and asymmetrical massing. Modern Cottage floor plans are adapted for today’s lifestyles, with cozy family gathering spaces, inviting hearths, and up-to-date amenities. If you are looking for a unique home with character and a sense of history, our Cottage house plans collection is where you'll find it!

Green House Plans
More than ever, homeowners are looking to build smaller, more efficient, “green” homes. Why? Because, green homes cut down on energy costs by way of extra insulation, more-efficient water heaters, lighting and appliances, and the use of natural daylighting techniques. Additionally, many green homes save money on construction costs up-front due to their smaller size. The green house plans in this collection pay special care to window placement and overhangs, so that the amount of sunlight entering the home is controlled properly. Our green home plan designs also anticipate insulation and wall systems ideal for extreme hot and cold temperatures, where the HVAC loads will be high. Although choosing the right materials and measuring performance are key factors in sustainable living, "going green" is more than that. Green is a design concept. A great home that anticipates your family's future needs may eliminate the building of yet another home that will consume additional materials, energy and money. In other words, a true green home must be a well-designed, attractive, flexible home that is a joy to live in for years to come.

Low Country House Plans
Low Country house plans originated as humble one-room cottages in the original English settlements in the tidewater regions of Maryland and Virginia (Low Country home plans are also called Tidewater house plans for this very reason). From there they spread down the coast to the Carolinas and as far as Alabama. Often raised on piers (pilings) to avoid coastal flooding, these simple, square designs will sometimes be referred to as elevated house plans or beach house plans on pilings. Designed to live comfortably in hot, humid climates, Low Country floor plans feature lots of windows to capture coastal breezes and highlight the views, with gracious porches to shade the interior. Far from humble, today's Low Country plans feature second floor bedrooms, while the wide inviting front porches invite guests to stay and linger. Rustic but elegant, airy Low Country or Tidewater home plans are perfect for those who enjoy casual waterfront living and entertaining. Though perfect for beach houses, Low Country house plans easily accommodates year-round living for families, retirees, and anyone who appreciates the sense of simplicity and history of this romantic coastal cottage.

Midwest House Plans
Inspired by distant horizons, miles of grasslands, and the earth itself, the Prairie School of architecture is the primary influence in Midwestern home design. An emphasis on horizontal lines and a tendency towards natural materials in neutral colors reflect the Midwestern landscape. Craftsman and Bungalow influences may also be evident in Midwest house plans. If you’re planning to build a home in a Midwest neighborhood, you may also consider Ranch and Traditional styles for their solid character and down-to-earth efficiency.

Neoclassical House Plans
Popular in America from 1895 to 1950, stately Neoclassical house plans recall the architectural traditions of ancient Greece, Rome, and the Renaissance period. Usually two or two-and-a-half stories, these dignified homes typically feature a symmetrical shape, a simple side-gabled roof, and a prominent portico or full-width porch supported by classical columns. Neoclassical home plans may be faced in brick, stucco, or siding, and usually display elaborate pediments over doors and windows as well as dentil molding and balustrades along the roof lines. Common in prosperous neighborhoods from the east coast to the west and down into the Gulf States, Neoclassical floor plans tend to have a formal air, with living room and dining room in the front and kitchen and family room in the back. Elegant and gracious, elegant Neoclassical home plans are a natural choice for families who feel at home with classic style.

Shed House Plans
A favorite of architects in the 1960s and 1970s, simple, streamlined Shed roof house plans feature multiple half-gable roofs sloping in different directions, delighting the eye with an exciting multi-geometrical effect. The Shed roof style was popularized by a second home community on the Northern California coast called The Sea Ranch, especially in the structure known as Condominium 1, from 1965, designed by architects Charles Moore, Donlyn Lyndon, William Turnbull, and Richard Whitaker. Dynamic, asymmetrical exteriors of Shed house plans are usually made up of shingle, board, or brick with low-key entrance ways that welcome visitors with warmth but a minimum of fanfare. Windows are irregular, varying from large expanses of glass for natural lighting and views to small, narrow, or high windows to protect privacy and preserve wall space for art display. Related in style to Ranch house plans, Split Level house plans and other Contemporary and Modern house plans, spare but dramatic Shed home plans can be found from New England to the Pacific Northwest and most anywhere in between. Ideal in almost any neighborhood setting, these distinctive single- or multi-storied homes offer the opportunity to create an endless variety of room configurations to suit eclectic individuals or families looking for lots of room, an uncluttered environment, and unmistakable modern style.

Sloped Lot House Plans
Do you have a lot that slopes? The house plans in this collection are designed to turn a challenging plot of land into an asset. They often incorporate a walk-out basement, making the most of usable space and providing an unobstructed view of the well manicured landscape, while allowing natural light to brighten the lower level. Some designs, best suited for lots that slope up, feature front-facing garage bays and storage space on the lower level. Others, well-suited to lots that slope down in back, open to the backyard with two or more levels of porches and decks. Either way, sloped lot house plans take full advantage of their asymmetrical design, creating unique indoor/outdoor spaces that elevate your standard of living.

Split Level House Plans
Influenced by Prairie and Ranch homes as well as later modern styles, Split Level floor plans feature a two-story high section joined to a single-story section located a half-story in between, creating three distinct interior areas connected by short flights of stairs. A common variation is the Split Foyer house plan, or Raised Ranch, which is essentially a Ranch plan elevated above a partly below-grade basement, with the entrance on the stair landing between these two levels. The exterior of a Split Level design is often composed of natural wood, brick, or stucco punctuated by large picture windows. Though Split Level home plans may display vaguely Colonial or Tudor details, minimal decorative elements give them a modern feel. Innovative and intriguing, multi-floor Split Level house plans were hugely popular in the United States from the mid 1950s to the mid 1970s. They require smaller lots than their Ranch-style cousins and are particularly suited to tricky hillside lots. In addition, they are seen as a great choice for families: bedrooms are tucked away on the quiet upper level, the central level makes room for a spacious kitchen, living, and dining room, while the lower level (usually partly below grade) gives kids a place to play and provides room for storage, laundry, and parking.
