One-Story House Design with Back Lanai
Here’s a one-story farmhouse plan that makes great use of space. The easygoing layout feels spacious and relaxed, with the living areas flowing into one another. Check out the big shower in the owner’s bathroom. The living room opens out to the back lanai with sliding glass doors, and so does one of the guest bedrooms. We also like the generous mudroom near the garage.
Eye-Catching Modern Farmhouse Design
The front porch on this farmhouse design gives you a welcoming vibe. Check out the master suite’s huge walk-in closet, which includes direct access to the laundry room. The open floor plan of the great room, kitchen, and dining room, makes it easy to hang out with family members while cooking. Two bedrooms on the right side of the floor plan share a Jack-and-Jill bath. The covered rear porch invites you to unwind and relax after a long day.
