Modern Farmhouse Plan Exterior Features
Modern Farmhouse Plan 44206 has a combination of traditional and modern features. Firstly, the siding is white as you would see on an old white-washed farmhouse. White siding helps to reflect the sunlight and keep the house cooler. Whitewash was an easy way to freshen up the outside appearance. Today, we still love the pristine look of the vertical white siding.
Secondly, the home has abundant windows. Black window frames are an attractive contrast against the white siding. Before air conditioning, abundant windows were important to cool down the house. We still like to feel the breeze today. If you want some fresh air, open the double French doors in the great room.
Thirdly, it’s not a farmhouse without a wrap-around porch. Modern Farmhouse Plan 44206 does not disappoint. The covered porch wraps all the way around the living space. Wrap porches provide shade to keep the interior of old homes cooler. This feature will also alleviate your electric bill today. In the the old days, the porch was a prime place to socialize. Maybe we should take the time to do a little porch-sittin’ nowadays too.
A trio of tall windows complement both side walls of the great room in Modern Farmhouse Plan 44206. The rear wall has 2 sets of French doors, offering views to the wrap around porch. The great room will be a comfortable place to put your feet up at the end of the day.
The kitchen lies beneath its own beamed ceiling and is open to the great room. It has an expansive work island with room to sit down for a meal. Though it’s a modestly-sized kitchen, you have plenty of storage in the walk-in pantry.
Away from the living areas, the main floor’s bedroom features a walk-in closet. Mom and dad also have quick access to the washer and dryer. Upstairs, Bedroom 2 enjoys its own walk-in closet and shares a hall bath. An open bunk loft that overlooks the great room complements this one of a kind Modern Farmhouse Plan.
Walk through the breezeway to access the detached, 2 car garage. Here you can store tools and lawn equipment along with your vehicles.
