Traditional farmhouse plans are as varied as the regional farms they once presided over. The most prominent characteristic of farm houses are steeply gabled roofs, dormers and generous porches at front or back or as wrap-around verandas. Farmhouse floor plans are often organized around a spacious eat-in kitchen. Another exterior feature of Farmhouse is the symmetrical design plus horizontal siding and shutters. The Farmhouse floor plans are similar to Country plans in their emphasis on woodsy informality.
