Southern house plans are truly an American style of home born of the original homes British immigrants built, once they settled in the Southern half of the United States, during the colonial period and thereafter, when a larger wave of European immigrants began arriving in the United States. This new wave of people crossing the Atlantic Ocean were looking for economic and religious relief but they were greatly influenced by the architecture of the first half of the 19th century. This type of architecture was heavily shaped by Georgian, Neo-classical, and Greek revival style plantation homes and mansions, as well as French Colonial and the Federal style. Many various architectural styles and design components encompass the Southern House Plan designation and they provide features favorable to regional climates in the southern portion of the United States; although, you will find these comfortable and inviting homes across the United States as well.
While some may require only minor adjustments to update exteriors, most could also benefit from an overall interior redo. Because the kitchen remains the focal point of the home, many older designs need to be completely reworked to create an open relationship between the kitchen, dining, and family areas. But proceed with caution regarding such openness: Recent surveys indicate that some sort of definition for these rooms is preferable.
In 1.5 storied homes, the main floor is substantially larger than the upper floor affording the family loads of space to live and sleep while also offering space in which to create meaningful additional spatial and functional rooms. Having the majority of the essential rooms on the main floor allows for plenty of vaulted ceilings, open window designs and private bedrooms without overhead floor traffic. Another great feature for 1.5 storied homes is their ability to allow the homeowners the option to age in their home and retain enough space overhead to feature rooms for overnight or long term guests. Cape Cod and Country homes are just two of the many distinctive styles for 1.5 stories and the addition of dormers, creative nooks and crannies along with multi-purpose upper level rooms create homes with unique character and flair.
