Corner Lot Craftsman House Plan Ellington 30-242

click rendering for more plan details

Four gables, each accented by a decorative corbel, give an open, friendly look to the Ellington. Gentle arches, Craftsman-style windows and stone veneer wainscoting all add to the exterior appeal. With the exception of the bonus room (or bedroom) over the garage, this is a single level plan.

A bright and spacious vaulted living area fills the entire center of this home. Sunlight spills into the living room from the rear through two windows and atrium glass doors, and when skies darken, the gas fireplace serves as a warm, colorful focal point. The doors access a patio or deck, and provide plenty of air circulation when needed.

Dining room and kitchen are next to each other, partially separated by a raised eating bar. Family and friends will enjoy sitting here, especially while food is being prepared. Standing at the sink, you’ve got a panoramic view of the gathering spaces as well as the patio and landscape outside.

Utilities are nearby, hidden behind a pocket door. Because this large space connects to the garage, it also doubles as a mudroom and is handy for unloading groceries in safety, out of the rain, snow, or what have you. Families with muddy-pawed dogs will particularly appreciate this space.

Double doors next to a charming arched display cove open into the Ellington’s luxurious owners’ suite. In addition to direct patio access, notable features include: a huge walk-in closet, twin vanity, a spa tub awash in the soft light filtered through glass blocks, and separately enclosed shower and toilet.

Stairs from the kitchen lead up to a skylit bonus room with a half bath.

As the end of the year approaches, reflection over the last year begins. What architectural styles faded or continue to dominate? What size or floor plan arrangement held homeowners’ preferences? The House Plan Company has taken a pause to reflect on the top design trends of 2022.

The top trend for 2022 was Barndominium plans. This modern style draws from the past with heavy country and farmhouse influences. Iconic features previously reserved for detached barns such as silos, gambrel-style roofs, and cupolas now grace the front of homes and duplexes. One of The House Plan Company’s most popular barndo-style design is the Sylvan Lake, HPC #93262. This luxury design checks most of the styles boxes with a rounded bay wrapped in metal to give it the appearance of a silo while the core of the home looks like an upscale, historic barn with a gambrel roof.

Next on 2022’s top design trends are Small House Plans. In contrast with some of the other design trends for the year homes under 2000 square feet were popular with homeowners and builders alike. One of the top small house plans is the Kendrick, HPC #41825. At 1195 square feet, the Kendrick offers an open floor plan with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The Craftsman-inspired exterior makes it a popular choice and easy to add to almost any subdivision.

With working from home becoming a permanent option, homes with 4 bedrooms became a popular request from homeowners looking to set up home offices away from the main living areas. The added flexibility of 4 bedrooms allows not only for private home offices but can serve as guest rooms or hobby spaces. Featured on The House Plan Company is the Carbondale, HPC #47582, a hillside house plan with four bedrooms an open floor plan designed to take in lake, mountain, or urban views. The main floor is filled with the great room, master suite, plus a flex room that could serve as a home office, den, guest room, or whatever else suites.

The next two styles go hand-in-hand, view lot and homes on walk-out basements too a leading role in 2022 design trends. Possibly a result of more time spent indoors, homeowners are looking for ways to bring more of the outdoors into their daily life. Considering the view your lot has – be that lake, river, mountain, or urban – is a great way to draw the outside in. A walk-out basement is a great foundation choice for those working with hillside lots and who want to maximize any view afforded by the changing grade. A basement foundation can provide homeowners with flexibility to finish the space at a later date, allowing the home to serve over shifting life stages. HPC #40138 is a popular sloped lot design with reverse living – gathering spaces above the main floor – allowing views to be captured from the front and side of the home. The great room is richly windowed and a large deck along the side of the home allows for outdoor enjoyment of any views the lot has to offer.

With sights on the new year, The House Plan Company considers what trends 2023 may bring. What architectural style will be most popular? Can Barndominium continue its lead or will there be a revival of Prairie or Bungalow style designs? Flexibility in floor plan layout will continue to be key as the home will continue to serve a dual role of personal and workspace. Whether the preference that the flexibility is provided by an extra bedroom or if bonus rooms will see a comeback is yet to be seen.

With the holiday season upon us, celebration planning is underway and many homeowners ponder how to accommodate friends and family. Are there enough chairs at the dining table, is there room to add extra seating, and for those traveling to visit where will they stay? Lofts, bonus rooms, and living rooms morph from gathering spaces to bedrooms but with careful planning a home can more easily adapt to the demands of the holidays.

Homes with four bedrooms have been a rising trend in the residential design industry. The House Plan Company has a complete collection of designs dedicated to this floor plan trend and has highlighted four designs that prove you do not need to build a large 3000-square-foot plus home to have the flexibility afforded by four-bedroom floor plans.

HPC Design 89125

Wrapped in a modern farmhouse exterior, Design 89125 offers a 1967 square foot floor plan that proves you can have it all in a smaller home. The first floor is primarily filled with the great room. The open layout is great for holiday entertaining and allows people and conversations to flow throughout the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The flexibility comes in from the first-floor den. This space could serve as that four bedroom and furnished as a guest room. On the second floor are two additional spare bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet, plus the master bedroom.

HPC Design 99787

A stunning modern country-inspired plan, Design 99787 is filled with flexible spaces. From the street the home appears to be a two-story floor plan with farmhouse influences and an attached three car garage. Inside the floor plan provides homeowners with a main floor master bedroom, a home office, and an open floor plan. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms that share a full bath. The basement level is where this 2133 square foot home offers homeowners seasonal overflow space. A large activity room is in the walk-out basement and the designer has proposed an optional bedroom for those looking for a four-bedroom floor plan.

HPC Design 10138

An eye-catching, classic farmhouse HPC Design 10138 is a one-story design that shines at entertaining. The large U-shaped, covered front porch will draw guests and family in through the double entry door where the foyer is open to the great room. In addition to the four bedrooms, which flank each side of the great room that fills the heart of this home, a study off the entry and tucked behind sliding barn doors could serve as additional holiday guest accommodation. Assuming the weather is not too frightful, the covered back porch boasts an outdoor fireplace where cocoa and smores can be enjoyed into the evening.

HPC Design 41489

A blend of Craftsman and farmhouse influences grace the exterior of Design 41489. The floor plan offers an informal and laidback feel as the double front door opens directly into the great room. A ceiling transition helps to provide some visual separation to the otherwise open space. Those working hard in the kitchen to prepare snacks, or the holiday meal will not feel cut off from the festivities. An L-shaped island makes a great spot to serve up treats and provide additional seating. The screened porch extends the living room is a cozy place to watch the snow fall for those living in colder climates. Upstairs is a large bonus room, affording space for visitors to spread out.

The holidays should also be a time of relaxation and afford an opportunity to reset. How a space holds up to entertaining can aid or hinder the ability to find peace during a time of celebration, family, and friends. Four-bedroom floor plans afford year-round flexibility and do not require large footprints to live comfortably.

The Kokanee is a two-story house plan wrapped in a charming country exterior. Slender columns with broad stone bases mark the boundary of the front covered porch.

Inside the foyer is open with a tall 2-story ceiling and is open to the great room. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are all open so that people and conversations can flow freely in the space. A fireplace can be enjoyed from the living room on cozy fall days.

An eating bar extends out and provides some visual separation to the kitchen while adding additional seating during holiday gatherings.

Off the dining room a short hallway leads past a half bath and a pass-through utility room which provides direct access to the attached two car garage. At the end of the hall is the main floor owners’ suite which features a private bath with twin sinks and a walk-in closet.

Those who enjoy entertaining will appreciate the second-floor guest room.

These extra rooms make great home offices, exercise studios, or hobby rooms for households without children or adult children who have left the nest.

Extending out over the garage is a bonus room. The 8-foot ceiling allows this space to be finished as a family room or recreation room providing space for visitors to spread out during larger get-togethers. For families with small children the bonus room is an ideal space for a playroom.

Photo of Luxury House Plan Coeur d'Alene 30-634

click house plan photo for more design details

The Coeur d’Alene is an exceptionally large, richly windowed lodge-style home design. A delight to behold, its expansive interior offers a multitude of gathering and private spaces.

Natural wood posts and two-high stack of gables accented by king posts and struts create an impressively lofty entry. Custom windows accent the two front gables that flank the central foyer, all nicely set off against a backdrop of clean lined metal roofing.

Inside, a large dining room is to the left of the vaulted foyer, and a spacious library with gas fireplace is on the right. If a library is not needed this space would make a luxurious home office. Ahead is a bright and spacious vaulted living room. Wide windows flank the much larger mantled stone-veneer fireplace centered at the rear. Double doors on both sides of the room open onto the large, curved patio that spans that back of the home.

Squared, natural wood columns mark the passageway that leads past the butler’s pantry to the generously sized kitchen. Two work islands add to the abundant counter space. One has a wide cook top, while the one rimmed by a flush eating bar has a prep sink.

A wide hearth fronts the roomy wood-fired baking oven on one side, and another wall of ovens is on the left. A curved wall of windows wraps around the side nook, which also has a built-in buffet and hutch, and the kitchen opens into a media room with another fireplace in a hearth room alcove. A wine storage cellar and hobby room are further to the left.

Owners’ suite luxuries include a fireplace, and both his-and-her walk-in closets and bathrooms, the later with an elegant claw-foot tub. An exercise room and an exterior hot tub and shower are nearby.

Two vaulted bedrooms with private baths are upstairs in the Coeur d’Alene, along with plenty of storage and a bridge overlooking the great room.
