Fantastic House Plans with Porches

House plans with porches are always in style - in fact, they are more popular than ever. There's just something about a porch that make a house a home.



Whether desired for curb appeal or for a place to relax and watch the world go by, a front porch is an architectural feature that adds value and comfort to almost any home.

Don't forget that you may have options for porch designs when selecting home plans.

When selecting your plan be sure you can alter or modify the plan. This ensures you can modify the plan to make it a wrap around porch house plan if you so desire.

Before settling on a home plan, contemplate how it complements your lifestyle, stage of life, and of course, your budget. Mary and I have gone through the biding process twice and know that a "dream" home begins with a detailed plan.

We also know that unless you have an unlimited budget, you will have to compromise on something. So it is very important to distinguish must haves from would-like-to-haves during your selection process.

Our current home was built from a wrap around porch house plan, one of two features we really wanted. (The other was a window over the kitchen sink.)

We appreciate Family Home Plans allowing us to feature their house plans with porches and know you can find your dream home too.

Ranch House Plans with Porches

We've been asked several times about ranch homes with aesthetically pleasing porches. Often times a ranch home's roof slope is low making it more difficult to attach a porch blends with the architecture of the home. We found these exciting ranch home plans that have fun and appealing front porches.

Cottage in the woods with charming front porch-Family Home Plan #49824

Although small in size, this ranch cottage (photo below) is full of appeal. At only 576 square feet it is perfect as a starter home (nice and cozy) or possibly modify this plan to add additional square footage. We love the little front porch.

This is a nice 9 foot ceiling ranch home with an inviting front porch. Depending on your lot, you could opt to have this remain an open porch (no railings as shown) or with railings if required by local building codes. Either way, it would be a great family porch.

Really nice ranch style home design and the arches between the porch columns are a nice touch along with the heavier column pedestals all of which adds a bit of sophistication to this home.
