We would definately buy from them again and recommend them to all our friends and family...|
We had a lifelong dream to build a nice home on a large piece of land, and when we moved to Georgia in 2000, we bought a temporary house in a small subdivision. Moving here allowed me to really explore the local area and to check land values where I would like to build this dream home.
It ended up taking me over 6 years, but we finally found a beautiful 16 acre parcel just one mile from my house. When we started building, I purposely located the house at the back of the land, close to the woods and to the old farm pond. I also set it at an angle to the land to insure shade on the back porch and to have a good view down the 1,000 foot long driveway.
Also, because of of the relative seclusion I was looking for, I chose to keep the main living area windows with out any dressings.
The HPG-20213-1 house plan was perfect for our family! Some of my favorite features include the 16 x 40 full gym that we built, the large open living space with maple hardwood floors, the back porch deck and patio that looks out on our pond, and so many other features I can't even begin to go into...
We highly recommend House Plan Gallery and their house plans, and would definately buy from them again and recommend them to all our friends and family...

We are very happy with our home!|
Well done plans. Easy to work with per our builder. We made slight modifications to meet our needs (no family room over garage but used the area for storage with a drop down ladder). We are very happy with our home!
This home will make a tremendous difference in our family's lives, and we owe it all to House Plan Gallery...|
I am 68 and my husband is 70 years old, and we have a 48 year old son who was involved in a near fatal car accident four and a half years ago. He is now completely wheelchair dependent, has a wife with two kids, and now lives with us. We take care of him morning to night, and many of the day-to-day tasks are quite time consuming and strenuous, especially for people of our age.
Our previous home did not work well with our son't wheelchair, and after praying for some time, we found the HPG-1855-1 house plan that had been built here locally. We immediately fell in love with this beautiful plan and are now in the process of building it with full wheelchair-accessibility, and cannot wait to get moved in...

The layout of this home has brought our family closer together in ways that we never could have imagined...|
My husband has had the vision to build for several years and the timing was right for our family in terms of the economy and employment situations. There are so many features that we LOVE! The large front porch (where I have added a porch swing), the covered backporch, the large great room, the breakfast area, the kitchen, the master bath!
When my husband and I saw this house plan, we both knew it was the perfect house plan for our family and would meet all of our needs and wants.
Our lot overlooks a wooded area so the large number of windows provide access to gorgeous wooded views that some find only in vacation homes. There are many features to this house that we absolutely love, but as a mom, the large breakfast area is one of my favorites. We have only lived in this home two short months, but the breakfast area has already provided several opportunities for our family to come together over meals and board games while spending time together. In addition, it is nice to be in the kitchen close by while my children have their friends over and are hanging out/ snacking (as kids and teens will do).
The porches are another favorite! Since I was a girl growing up next to an elderly lady who would invite me to sit and talk on her front porch swing, I have always dreamed of owning a home with a porch swing and now I have it! The memories that I have of the time I spent with my Christian neighbor and the values she imparted to me are priceless because we had a place to relax and spend time. I now have my own porch swing on my front porch to share with my own children. This is also the first time my family has had a covered back porch. We have spent more time outdoors in two months on the back porch then we did in an entire year at our old home with a deck. We've enjoyed rain storms, reading books, meals and more in the shade and privacy of our covered back porch.
The bedroom layout of this house plan was also perfect for our family. We have three children ages 6, 10 and 13 (two boys and a girl). The bedroom with the bathroom inside of it was perfect for my only daughter (who is also the youngest). She feels like she is a princess in her pink bedroom with a purple bathroom.
Due to the way the roof line fell, the builder was able to expand this room (with a sloped ceiling). The extra play space is perfect for her dollhouse and other "girl" toys. My two boys have the bedrooms at the top of the stairs facing the front of the house. The large closets give them room for their sports equipments and hobbies (and clothes). The boys also share the bathroom in the upstairs hall. It is perfect! We added a double vanity (instead of one) so that each of my boys would have their own sink bowl (no fighting over who is going to brush their teeth first !). The door between the toilet/shower area and the vanity area also gives each boy the privacy he needs.
Lastly, my husband and I have a master bedroom downstairs which makes this a house we can grow old in! The large closets are also a plus and make it easier to keep our things separate and neat. The window over the garden tub looks over the wooded area behind our home and it is a wonderful view that we enjoy each day!
My husband's job is based from our home so the home office gives him a private place to work (with doors). The workshop area in the garage also gives him the storage space he needs without having work files cluttering the living areas of our home.
In the garage, we divided the garage area and made one car stall separate with a wall. This allowed us to have space for a weight room / fitness area. This means all our equipment, including the treadmill, have a place of their own (and not in the living areas of the house).
We opted to finish out the bonus room at the top of the stairs (complete with French doors) for our children (and their friends) to have a place to hang out and play. We've added a television and video games, foosball table, air hockey and more! This is a great place for our kid's friends. At night, they can roll out the sleeping bags and crash. It has been a lot of fun having this space. We also added a large closet off from the bonus room upstairs. The closet is lined with shelves for legos, board games, toy sets, books and more.
This house is the house of our dreams. When my husband and I saw the plan, we both knew right away that this was it! After living here for two months, we were right. The layout of this home has brought our family closer together in ways that we never could have imagined. Family ties are important in this busy world in which we are pulled in so many directions. I am grateful for my home and the opportunity to share my excitement with you! There are so many more things I could share - like the great builder we had, the wonderful woodwork, the gorgeous kitchen, but I think you get the picture!
Thank you House Plan Gallery for making our dreams come true!

This house has been a real blessing for every member of our family, and will be a cherished home for many generations to come!
When my husband Bruce and I were dating seventeen years ago, we loved to dream and plan our future together. One thing that was important to both of us was to eventually build a house that would be a home for our family for many generations. My grandparents lived on a beautiful hillside farm that I had grown up next to for twenty-five years. It was a dream for me to have my children play in the same woods I played in as a child. My husband shared my dream, and so for fifteen years we prayed, saved, and planned.
We looked at thousands of house plans. We knew exactly what we needed, what we wanted, and what we could only dream of. The first plans we liked slowly gave way to bigger ones as our family grew. My grandparents passed within three years of each other. The sorrow we felt at their loss was tempered only by the knowledge that my grandfather, Elmer, and grandmother, Dora, would love that their beloved great-grandchildren were bringing life back to "The Old Homeplace."
The features that really drew us to this particular plan were the traditional beauty and functionality of the home. We were building on an existing 100 year old farm and wanted the house to look like it belonged there, without sacrificing any comforts.
Over the past eight months, we have had the joy and privelege of watching the birth of a new chapter of our lives. We are moving from a 1500 square foot house in Defiance, Ohio, with very little yard to play in, and traffic such that I worry to let my children play outside alone. My 11-year-old daughter Emily is the fortunate child; she has her own room. My four sons, ages 4-14, share a room with two sets of bunk beds. There is not enough room to have dresser space for everyone. The one bathroom is a challenge on busy school days!
The kitchen is inexplicably shrinking as the kids grow. Once everyone is seated at the table, no one can get up because there's not enough room to walk around the table! It's ok, if anyone needs a knife or fork, I only have to lean over to get it out of the drawer, and my husband can lean over to the stove to reach the pans. Tv and movies are usually watched with us laying all over each other like a pack of dogs. The heartbreak for me came when my son Elijah asked a friend over to spend the night, and the friend said our house was too small. NO MORE!
As soon as we saw these plans, we said that THIS was the perfect one for our family! Beautiful on its own, and so easy to modify for our needs and dreams. Our new house has room for everyone, and then some! We have had so many people comment that the house looks like it belongs to the surroundings. The cheery yellow siding, white gingerbread trim on the porch and the fishscale siding in the peaks just cry farmhouse.
We love to sit on the wide front porch and just enjoy the serenity as we watch the kids catch fireflies. We can sit in the back enclosed porch to relax and watch the kids play, or just watch the chickens as they peck around looking for bugs in the yard. The sound of rain on the green metal roof is one of my favorite sounds. To sit in the study in the window seat and read a book while the rain hits the roof...Heaven!
The kids take such pride in their own space. They never imagined they would each get their own room! Even our four year old son Gideon loves his own room. He loves the "secret room" we tucked under the eaves for his toys. The bathrooms are wonderful - two or three sharing a bathroom is really a luxury! The large closets and amount of space for storage is more than we could have hoped for.
We truly appreciate all the special touches of the house, and there is no unused or wasted space, which was important to me. The pantry area is a favorite of mine. No more storing food and pans in the basement! A long counter holds the crock pots, roasters and coffee pot, and a pocket door slides to hide it all in a moment. My children now understand the old adage, "a place for everything and everything in its place." The family room is roomy yet welcoming. No longer will we have to pile on one another to watch tv (but we may choose to!). The gas fireplace in the family room will be well used, and so easy to use. The gas fireplace in the master bedroom will keep us toasty on blustery winter evenings, or when the electricity fails, as it often does out in the country.
The kids have so much room to spread out, and no reason not to have friends over. The huge bonus area over the garage will be their favorite place to hang out, but the basement has plenty of room for the workout equipment that we had no space for in our first home. It will get a lot of use from my oldest son Zack as he trains for wrestling season. There's still plenty of space to put a pool table, and even a ping pong table that has been requested by our nine-year-old Luke.
I was raised to be happy with what we have, but to be truly thankful for what we have been blessed with. This house has been a real blessing for every member of our family, and will be a cherished home for many generations to come.
House Plan Gallery's plans were great to build from, and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new home for their family!
What a great group of folks to work with.|
We purchased our home plan from House Plan Gallery in 2012. With only a few minor alterations, we now have the home of our dreams. When I contacted them because I had accidently ordered a slab plan and actually needed a crawl space plan, they sent the correct plans at no charge.
What a great group of folks to work with. You will not be disappointed if you choose a plan from House Plan Gallery!

They were very helpful.|
I was very pleased with the house plans we ordered. They were very helpful and responded quickly.
The house plan was exactly as we'd hoped.|
The house plan was exactly as we'd hoped. We provided the plans to the builder who had no problem building our dream house. We found the plans on 2 sites and received, true to word, the cheaper price for the same plans. The individual we spoke with on the phone to order was very helpful and our plans arrived in a very short time.
How convenient it was to find "our" house plans cleverly and thoughtfully designed - the builder has been asked to build at least 2 more exact replicas that WE know of. I would direct anyone else to this same website to get exactly what you are looking for without surprises.
