Get the modern farmhouse look with this sweet design. The heart of the home – the kitchen – offers a relaxed island and opens to the family room. Enjoy outdoor living on the rear deck.
The primary suite is located on the main level (making it easy to age in place) and gives you a big shower and direct access to the laundry room. Don’t miss the flexible study near the foyer or the versatile loft on the second floor.
A pocket office and a butler’s pantry are just some of the special features in this farmhouse-style plan. You’ll also find a super-open layout between the main living spaces. The kitchen sports a big island and lots of counter space. Check out the handy drop zone and closet on the way in from the garage.
Upstairs, highlights of the primary suite include two sinks, a coffee corner, and dual closets. A loft and a future deck give even more room for relaxation.
A rear deck adds usable space to this welcoming two-story home. The open gathering areas are the center of attention, with the family room opening to the breakfast nook and the island kitchen. Don’t miss the well-organized mudroom or the big pantry.
A home office and a bedroom suite are located at the back of the main floor plan. Two more bedroom suites (including the luxe primary suite) occupy the second level, along with a playroom, a workstation, and three additional bedrooms.
Ideal for a sloping lot, this four-bedroom plan gives you sleek curb appeal. The open kitchen impresses with a big island and loads of counter space. The walk-in pantry is ready to hold groceries. Check out the spacious covered deck just off the dining room.
Upstairs, the elegant primary suite boasts a walk-in closet and a spa-like bathroom. Above the two-car garage, a flexible guest space shows off a kitchenette, a den area, and a full bath. A fourth bedroom, a flex space, and a full bath complete the lower level.
A metal roof covers the front porch of this functional farmhouse plan. Inside, the modern floor plan maximizes living space with an open layout. Enjoy outdoor living on the covered deck.

Two bedroom suites (one on the first floor and one on the second) give you sizeable walk-in closets. You’ll find two additional bedrooms (each with a walk-in closet) and a full bath on the second level. We love the spacious family lounge.
Looking for a modest plan with lots of light? Check out this efficient design. The living room is highlighted by a cathedral ceiling, a fireplace, and openness to the kitchen.

Upstairs, the primary suite gives you an extra-big closet (with a seat) and a luxurious bathroom. Two more bedrooms share a hall bath. Take in the view on the rooftop terrace.
This modern-style plan makes the most of its modest footprint and shows off plenty of welcome amenities (like a spa-like bathroom in the primary suite). A generous island in the kitchen is ready to serve up casual meals.
Lots of windows provide plenty of natural light. The living room and dining area enjoy access to the impressive deck via sliding glass doors.
Sleek lines and a balcony/deck highlight the exterior of this modern garage apartment plan. Hang out in the island kitchen, which overlooks the living room and the breakfast nook. A bedroom and a full bath sit near the back of the plan.
Turn heads with this contemporary house design. On the main level, an open floor plan allows easy movement between the living room and the island kitchen. A practical mudroom waits just off the two-car garage. The kitchen shows off a double-oven and a roomy pantry.
Secluded on the right side of the main floor plan, the primary suite enjoys privacy and a deluxe bathroom. Other wow moments: the huge wraparound deck, the bunk room, and lots of storage.
Stylish and cool, this modern design makes indoor-outdoor living a priority. The "chill deck" connects to the home visually from many rooms, and invites you to grab a cold drink and head outside.
The open kitchen flows effortlessly into the living room. Use the secondary bedroom as a home office if needed.
