Southwestern house plans reflect a rich history of Colonial Spanish and Native American styles and are usually one story with flat roofs, covered porches, and round log ceiling beams.* Walls of Southwestern style homes are often stucco or stone and have overhangs or trellises to provide shade from the desert sun. Southwestern house plans tend to be asymmetrical with alcoves, spacious living areas, and fluid layouts. Built-in seating -- also called "bancos" -- beehive fireplaces, and door-less showers are distinctive features. If you find a home design that's almost perfect, but not quite, call 1-800-913-2350. Most of our house plans can be modified to fit your lot or unique needs.
