The iconic American farmhouse now has a modern twist.
What are modern farmhouse floor plans?
The distinguishing interior features for the 21st-century version of this favorite home plan style include a vaulted Great Room/Family Room, open floor plans, the use of barn-style doors and wide plank wood flooring. Floor plans have a split bedroom layout. Kitchen layouts are spacious and open.
On the exterior, these house plans feature gable roof, dormers, steep roof pitches, and metal roofs. As with farmhouse style, wrap-around porches are common. The typical modern farmhouse house plan adds a rear porch. The modern farmhouse exterior look often includes board and batten and lap siding.
