If you're planning to build your home in North Carolina, be sure to take a look at our collection of North Carolina house plans below.**
Farmhouse, country, colonial and classical architecture tends to dominate the majority of North Carolina. That said, like any state, different areas support different aesthetics. For instance, if you're planning to build along the coast, a beach cottage will probably look right at home. What all North Carolina house plans tend to have in common is a love for outdoor living space. As you browse the below collection, you'll discover many floor plans that sport posh porches, beautiful balconies, and much more.
Remember to think about your daily routine and what makes you happy. For example, if you love throwing summer BBQs, make sure the house plan you choose offers a deck or patio on which to cook and entertain. Likewise, if you do a lot of indoor entertaining, an open floor plan usually works best so the chef of the house isn't closed off from the main living spaces as he or she prepares dinner. Furthermore, try to anticipate problems. For example, if you know your living room will boast beautiful white carpet, make sure the plan you select features a mudroom between at least one entrance and the main living space so carpet crises do not erupt every time it rains!
