Some modern home design house plants include a 70s retro-modern open floor plan, a gabled farmhouse with a window wall, and a modular treehouse design. The latter is characterized by a box-like appearance on the outside with arched ceilings and open spaces on the inside. The living room area is a great room with high ceilings and large windows leading out to the back deck.
One modern house plan is a twist on the traditional farmhouse, with a high central gable and covered porches on each side. A floor-to-roof wall of windows on one side looks into the great room and in-house balcony, separating the two floors with more windows running along the side of the house above and below the covered porch wings.
AN example of a 70s retro-modern open floor plan features flat roofs, multiple terraces and glass walls. The sunken kitchen and living area are located on the ground floor with the bedrooms on the top floor.
Also featuring flat roofs and a boxy appearance from the outside, an eco-friendly plan features solar panels on the roof and sun shades, and there are plenty of windows along the sides to take advantage of all the natural light.
