Traditional House Plans

Traditional house plans are a popular style among home buyers no matter where they live or plan to build. These floor plans keep things simple with symmetrical windows and subtle roof lines. The term "traditional" in the architectural sense is all-embracing and can be used to define homes which have no defining features and favor function over flair.

Timeless Design

Not all architects design traditional home plans plainly and with a lack of attractive exterior features. They often add the term "traditional" to other architectural styles such as Colonial Design, creating a new subgroup that combines both modern and long-established aesthetics. Natural materials such as stone and wood shingles are used, including a combination of brick and stone.

Exterior Details

Exterior home designs vary depending on the architectural style and the lot size. Some may come with a covered porch whereas others have an airy lanai. You may find one plan with skylights and another with dozens of windows for natural lighting. Other exterior features may include:

  • Front gables at varying levels
  • Wood decoration in the gables
  • Wraparound porches
  • Hip-style roofs
  • Dormers

Interior Details

The interior plans also vary depending on the architectural style. They can feel more intimate with rooms off the living room, or they may feel more open with fewer walls separating the main living areas. Two-story home plans will often have the bedrooms located on the upper floor, and more intimate interiors will supplement a dining room for a nook. Other interior features may include:

  • An office adjacent to the foyer
  • Gas or wood fireplaces
  • A powder room
  • Dens
  • A grand entry
