Prairie home plans borrow aspects of design from the 19th Century Arts and Crafts movement and add to it elements of the early American prairie lifestyle. Long clean lines and low roofs mimicking the vast plains of the Midwest landscape characterize the Prairie architectural style. These houses symbolize prairie living as they appear to grow right out of the soil on which they’re built.
The perfect starter or retirement home, Prairie style house plans tend to be smaller with three to four bedrooms and two- to three-and-a-half baths. The interior space is designed to be efficient and offer ample opportunity for outdoor living. The Prairie house plan can come with an attached or detached garage and can also be customized with other features to meet your needs.
