Mountain House Plans
About Mountain House Plans & Mountain Home Floor Plans...
Generally named for where they are built rather than their style of architecture, Mountain house plans usually have a rustic, yet eye-catching look. Most are designed for mountainous or rugged terrain and many work well on hillside lots as well. Mountain home plans typically blend well with nature, and their exteriors frequently incorporate the use of some natural and/or local materials. Open living areas, prow-shaped great rooms and an extensive use of windows afford panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. While mountain house plans vary from Contemporary to Traditional styling, many incorporate rustic details such as exposed beams, large decks or porches and stone chimneys. They range in shape and size, but most offer multiple levels and are usually built on a basement to accommodate the terrain. Log homes, Vacation house plans and Craftsman designs share some common elements with mountain house plans.
