These homes are best-suited to southern climates and feature thick walls and cool interiors. Heavy ornamentation such as wrought-iron window and door hardware, ornately carved and shaped columns, and patterned tile or ceramic floor treatments trace this style origins to the Old World. Spanish house plan elevations can be one- or two-story, with side gables and the typical low-pitched tile roofs of Spanish homes. Doors and windows of Spanish Revival houses are often constructed of thick wood and are decoratively carved.
Popular in the 1950’s, Ranch house plans, were designed and built during the post-war exuberance of cheap land and sprawling suburbs. During the 1970’s, as incomes, family size and an increased interest in leisure activities rose, the single story home fell out of favor; however, as most cycles go, the Ranch house design is on the rise once again. Affordable, efficient and offering functional layouts, today’s modern single story homes feature a host of amenities that are compatible with today’s families and their lifestyles.
You may be surprised at how upscale some of these homes are, especially ones that include offices and bonus rooms for extra space when needed. This collection includes many vacation home plans, including designs for sloping lots with a view. To maximize space, choose a plan with an open layout and excellent indoor/outdoor connections. Whether built as a simple starter home or a luxurious retirement house, there a two-bedroom home for every budget.
No longer unique to the state of Florida, our collection of Florida House Plans spans a range of sizes and styles. This collection represents all of the best of the Spanish and Mediterranean styles of architecture, along with other popular designs featured in warmer, waterfront climates, including stilted house plans, coastal house plans, and modern house plans. Florida house plans are designed to stay cool during the day and are – for the most part – built on a slab or stilted foundation.
