Southern Home Plans
Southern home plans have a warmth and a historical connection that few other styles can mirror.* The exterior design elements of Southern home plans can include inviting stacked porches, verandas, shuttered windows, arched transom windows, and dormers, which lend themselves to nostalgia and lasting appeal. The Louisiana Creole and Tidewater (South Carolina and vicinity) styles are often topped by a metal roof, giving them a distinctive appearance. Large classical and colonial style estate house plans also belong in the Southern home plans category.
