A subset of modern-contemporary design , shed house plans feature one or more shed roofs, giving an overall impression of asymmetry. Originally appearing in the 1960s and 1970s, shed house plans are enjoying renewed popularity as their roof surfaces provide ideal surfaces for mounting solar panels. Their floor plans are also ideal for modern lifestyles, offering open layouts assembled according to how families live instead of conforming to a traditional house form. Windows can be placed where they are most needed and wanted, and ceilings are high, often with clerestory windows to provide natural light.
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.
Designed for a narrow lot with rear access to the garage, this plan has all the essential ingredients of a best-seller. However, in some markets, a basement is a must-have. Besides adding this option, we also provided optional living quarters above the garage. This independent dwelling space is ideal for guest quarters or for an older child who is moving back home. In areas where codes allow it, this can also be used as an income-producing rental unit.
The timber-frame construction is often clad in clapboard siding or unpainted wood shingles that weather to gray. The Cape Cod house plan calls for a simple paneled front doorway that leads to a main hallway and symmetrical interior that is warmed by a massive central chimney, although modern floor plans may vary. Steep rooflines limit build-up of winter precipitation, while second-story side-gables admit light and help circulate air throughout the home.
