Southern House Plans
Southern house plans are usually built of wood or brick with pitched or gabled roofs that often have dormers. Southern house plans incorporate classical features like columns, pediments, and shutters and some designs have elaborate porticoes and cornices recalling aspects of pre-Civil War plantation architecture.
To make living in the humid climates of the South as comfortable as possible, Southern style homes make use of tall ceilings and large front porches to catch breezes. Regional variations of the Southern style include the Louisiana Creole and Low Country (South Carolina and vicinity) styles, are often topped by metal roofs.
