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!

The property has been in his family for five generations, so we wanted to pick the perfect plan for the farm. Luckily, we found that plan at the House Plan Gallery.

We are newly married and have a new baby. Our rental house was small and we needed more space.

We really like the fact that the kitchen and dining are open to the living room. Also, the master is on the opposite side of the house from the kids rooms.

After several years of renting, we decided to build on my husband's family property. The property has been in his family for five generations, so we wanted to pick the perfect plan for the farm. Luckily, we found that plan at the House Plan Gallery.

The house is underway and we look forward to spending our lives in our new home. Thank You House Plan Gallery!

Thanks for allowing us to use your plan and we would highly recommend your company to anyone interested!

I grew up in the western part of North Carolina and left home after graduating from high school. My job moved me around for several years and my family and I finally settled down in Charlotte, NC and eventually I started my own business there. I always had a desire to return to my roots and build a home back there for when I retired.

I had been single for a few years and upon returning home for a school reunion in 2008, I met an old friend that I had not seen in over 30 years. She had retired and moved "back home" the end of 2007. We started dating and before long we realized we were meant to be together. That is when I got busy on house plans.

I looked at "many" house plans, but kept going back to this particular one of yours. We both agreed this was the perfect one. It had plenty of open space and was laid out just the way we wanted. We like the master bedroom with the large bath and walk-in closet (which we changed to one big closet instead of his and hers)and the other bedrooms on the other end of the house.

My favorite parts of this house plan are the open space in the living area, and the really functional floorplan layout. It fits our needs perfectly...

We started clearing the land in February, 2009, and we were married in March. We had a very good builder and things just fell right into place. All the lumber in the house came off my land. We made a few minor changes, such as extending the front bedroom out and the porch a few feet wider. The plans were so easily followed, the builder had no problem at all.

We made the 3 1/2 hour trip weekly from Charlotte to help work on the house. On December 23, 2009, we moved in and spent our first Christmas together in our dream house.

The house sits upon a hill that overlooks the Smokey Mountains and we can see as far as Tennessee.

I am retiring soon and we look forward to sitting on our porch and enjoying the view and our new home.

Thanks for allowing us to use your plan and we would highly recommend your company to anyone interested!

I found the house plan I had been looking for when I opened the magazine...

My wife and I had been looking at different house plans for a while, and I was the holdout. My wife told me if we were ever going to build a larger home, we should do it while our children were young. That convinced me.

It was time to build, but I still had not found the "perfect" plan. I happened to meet Stephen Mathis at a local gym, and he gave me a copy of the House Plan Gallery plan catalog. I found the house plan I had been looking for when I opened the magazine. I showed it to my wife, and she loved the plan as well. We began the process of making minor customizations with the House Plan Gallery staff, and we soon had a working set of plans to begin building with.

I would HIGHLY recommend the good folks over at House Plan Gallery for anyone looking for a new home design...

The house plan was perfect! ...Great for entertainment and to enjoy after a long day at work...

The house plan was perfect... Its really hard to just name a few features that I like about this home design, but my favorites are: the tray ceiling in the Dining and Master Bedroom; the porch in the back; the bedrooms being completely on the other side of the house from the master bedroom; and the large oversized garage with the workshop area.

When we purchased the plans, we wanted to find a contractor that would actually build the plans "to the letter" of the actual working drawings, so we asked the local building inspector for recommendations. We found a contractor from that recommendation, and the ball started rolling from there.

We made a few modifications to home, onsite, including moving the fireplace to better allow for the placement of a full video/audio center cabinet. We also screened-in the porch and made the fourth bedroom a little larger so as to serve as my wife's scrap room. However, the largest modification was made on the bonus room, where we stick-built the roof to add an additional 1,500 sq ft which will include a full bath with a ~ 500 sq ft game room, 300 sq ft computer/media room, and a 700 sq ft home theater. This upper level is under construction as we speak and I can't wait to get in there!

The porch was screen-in and the 4th bedroom was made larger to the wife's scrap room. Bathroom was removed to add space. Also window was added to wall where no window appeared in plan to add sunlight. However the largest modification was done to the Bonus Room. The roof was was stick built to add an additional 1500 sq ft. that will include a full bath with a 500 s/f game room, 300 s/f computer/media room and a 700 sq ft Home theater. This upper level is a home project under construction as I write.

The home is great and a great layout. Great for entertainment and to enjoy after a long day at work.

I would recommend House Plan Gallery to anyone.

All i can say, is my wife & I had a great experience designing our floor plan. We had Mark, make several custom changes to the plans and some at short notice and even after the plans were complete. Mark was very patient with us. I would recommend House Plan Gallery to anyone.
