Modern House Plans

Picture of a Modern House

The term modern house plans is often confused with contemporary plans. The problem most folks have with the modern plans they see on stock plan sites is that they don’t really fit the description. A true modern house has a flat (sometimes slanted) roof, and is typically composed of rectangular or square spaces. Sometimes hard to describe, but you always know one when you see it. Modern homes were quite popular in the ‘50s and early ‘60s, but they’ve never really gone out of style.

The lines of a modern house are clean from the outside (we prefer the words “clean” and “rectilinear” to the word “boxy” when describing modern style homes). The word “contemporary” is often used as well, but most contemporary homes do not fit the definition of the modern style.

Common Characteristics of Modern House Designs:

Often composed of geometric shapes
Flat roofs, with or without a slight pitch
Ever changing, as architects reinterpret the style
Suited to today’s tech-savvy young adults
Clean lines with lots of windows

Bedrooms

We highly recommend that you click on two boxes – the number of bedrooms you know you need, and one less bedroom. For example, if you need 4 bedrooms, click on the boxes next to 4 and next to 3. Otherwise you will not see homes where existing rooms on the lower, main, or upper levels might work perfectly well as a bedroom instead of as an office, study, etc.
