Farmhouse plans, also called farm house plans, are the combination of country character and modern day house plans. People love the rustic style of a farmhouse. Timeless farmhouse homes express a relaxed living style. Modern farmhouses also show-off sleek lines, contemporary open layouts, and large windows. Porches remain an important part of this welcoming style. Modern farmhouse floor plans include a second story with gables to add light to the upstairs bedrooms.
