Modern farmhouse home plans combine the classic comfort of farmhouses of yesteryear and current modern sleek styles to create a unique composition of simplicity and function. The floor plans are typically open concept featuring contemporary lines and large windows. Welcoming porches figure prominently in the modern farmhouse design and encourage indoor/outdoor living spaces. Pitched gable roofs are reminiscent of farm building forms. Stark white siding complimented with dark windows, metal roofing and touches of exposed wood elements work together to create the aesthetic that is known as the Modern Farmhouse Style.
