About Modern Style House Plans
Those homeowners with an appreciation for more modern architecture and unusual features will find themselves searching our archive of contemporary house plans. Often noted for the mixture of textures and materials, contemporary homes offer interesting alternatives to traditional architecture. Without distinct design rules, contemporary architecture can be whimsical or fanciful, or can be more traditional in appearance. Large overhangs, split levels, large expanses of fixed glass, unique wood and stone facings are common to contemporary house designs. Modern features such as solar energy and skylights compliment the luxurious air created by thickly varnished wood and stainless steel.
