These four plans don't look much alike, but they do have a number of things in common: family-friendly layouts with plenty of storage, open floor plans, multi-use spaces, and (of course) attractive exteriors.

Cool Contemporary Style

Sleek contemporary lines and eye-catching windows imbue this home with exceptional curb appeal. Inside, the ultra-open layout combines the great room, island kitchen, and dining area into one large gathering space. The master suite occupies a private corner of the home and treats homeowners with a window-side tub, a large shower, and double sinks. Two more bedrooms share a hall bath on the opposite side of the home. Upstairs, a bunk/sleeping loft provides a versatile space for a den or playroom.

Costco-Sized Closets

With large walk-in closets for every bedroom, a huge laundry space, and enough room for a huge load of groceries in the pantry, this home keeps up with the storage demands of an active family. The kitchen flows into the open dining room, where a ceiling treatment adds ambiance to mealtimes. A sunroom leads to the deck on one side and a screened porch on the other, so homeowners are ready to entertain outside in any kind of weather. In the master suite, a spacious shower and two sinks invite relaxation. The play room can be used for an office or craft space. Upstairs, kids get to spread out with three bedrooms, two baths, and a loft. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Slim Plan with Wide Appeal

With Craftsman-style details and a wide porch, this narrow-lot home makes a big impression. Modern details include walk-in closets, a cooktop island in the open kitchen, and laundry located on the second floor. Porches in front and back invite relaxed outdoor living. Upstairs, the master suite displays a sitting room, a separate tub and shower, and double sinks. Three additional bedrooms (one can become a loft) share a full hall bath that boasts two sinks for easy sharing. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Porches Meet in Back

Beautifully combining country style with a modern layout, this plan delivers the best of old and new. The graceful front porch wraps around the side and eventually meets a screened porch in back, giving plenty of options for outdoor enjoyment. Inside, the little details make all the difference, like double linen closets near the hall bathroom. The kitchen's bar seats five, with the pantry just steps away for easy snack retrieval. A huge bonus room upstairs provides space for storage or later expansion. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
