Southern House Plans
About Southern House Plans & Southern Home Floor Plans...
Perhaps one of the most recognizable features of Southern house plans are their sweeping covered front porches lined with columns or their inviting wrap-around porches, perfect for outdoor living. Southern home plans are usually rectangular in shape with the exterior often featuring a gable roofline, small windows, dormers and a centrally located entry. The façade of Southern house plans may be simple with little ornamentation or neatly detailed blending well in rural or suburban areas. Often, the exterior of Southern home plans is reminiscent of the past, but the interior is thoroughly modern. Providing comfort, convenience and a relaxed atmosphere found in houses with deep Southern roots, these designs plans can be built almost anywhere. Southern house plans are closely related to Colonial home plans and Country house plans.
Typically, Southern living house plans are designed with two levels and range from a simple Narrow Lot design to an elegant estate. Size varies greatly from a one bedroom, one bath floor plan to a sophisticated layout or four or more bedrooms and baths. The living areas are fashioned with spacious, free-flowing areas, volume ceilings and functional yet elegant amenities. Many Southern floor plans incorporate several of today’s most popular design elements such as a main floor laundry room, kitchen island, built-in entertainment center and luxurious master bath. Frequently, two-story versions display a balcony at the top of the stairs with bedrooms positioned for privacy on the upper floor. Many different design variations compose the Southern home designs category. This selection of Southern living homes encompasses everything from Charleston floor plans, Greek Revival designs and plantation home plans to Georgian style house plans and Confederate home designs. Some display touches of America’s heritage like the Southern Colonial homes, which evoke the look and feel our founding fathers brought with them to the New World. Regardless of architectural influences gracing these Southern house designs, all of them deliver comfort, practicality and convenience while capturing true Southern spirit.
