Colonial House Plans
About Colonial House Plans & Colonial Home Floor Plans...
Reminiscent of a wonderful time in our nation’s history, Colonial house plans incorporate architectural elements prevalent in America’s original East Coast settlements. Representing the style and design once used by our country’s founders, today’s Colonial home plans feature classic detailing while offering many modern and up-to-date features. Most often, Colonial house plans are designed as Two-story homes and generally have a rectangular shape. One of their most recognizable exterior features is a central front door with the entrance marked by tall columns extending up to the roof. Other noticeable features of Colonial home plans include a symmetrical exterior and a balanced arrangement of windows highlighted with shutters. Colonial house plans share similarities with Cape Cod house plans and Southern home plans.
Colonial style homes are a representation of historical designs and often incorporate other distinguishing features such as doorways accentuated with transoms and sidelights, multi-pane, double hung windows, fanlights, Palladian windows, narrow overhangs, dormers, dentil moldings and low-pitched roofs. Economical in design, the roofline allows these historical house plans to have a spacious second story providing the same amount of living space on the second floor as on the first floor. Colonial floor plans vary in style from the shores of New England to the southern swamps, but they are all typically finished with brick or clapboard siding and wooden shutters. Sometimes Dutch style home plans, Greek Revival designs, Georgian house plans, Williamsburg homes and Southern floor plans reflect elements of these historical home plans. Recollections of the past and popular in the present, Colonial home designs deliver an enduring quality and livability that will carry into the future.
