Modern farmhouse plans are super-popular for a reason – they’re a more polished, hip version of a traditional farmhouse. While all farmhouse designs tend to showcase porches (front, rear, wrap around, etc), a gable roof, a central kitchen, and relaxed, welcoming curb appeal, modern farmhouse plans take things to a new level of chic with extra clean lines, metal roofs, and over-sized windows.
Modern farmhouses are generally 1-2 stories and can range in size from tiny to luxury. Dormers aren’t as popular on modern farmhouse plans as they are on traditional farmhouses. What’s more, modern farmhouse interiors tend to be airier and more contemporary than their traditional brethren, often featuring open floor plans, lots of indoor-outdoor flow, vaulted ceilings, and more.
