Swiss Chalet Home Plans
When it comes to stylish vacation homes, Chalet house plans reign supreme in the eyes of most.
Chalet house plans are reminiscent of homes on alpine ski slopes; indeed, most versions look as though they've been plucked from a mountainous backdrop. Typical exterior details include exposed beams, distinctive "wiggle-board" treatments on the eaves and/or decks, and fanciful rails that frame the porch(es) and/or deck(s). Interiors are usually voluminous, with high ceilings and open floor plans that allow for large gatherings. The best chalet-style home plans include an area for ski and winter-clothing storage.
