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!

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...

This home will make a tremendous difference in our family's lives, and we owe it all to House Plan Gallery...

It sold before we were even finished building!

This was our second house plan purchased from House Plan Gallery, Inc. We had a great experience both times that we purchased.

The first house we built was a spec house to sell and it sold before we were even finished building! The floor plans are great with minimal wasted space. We have just purchased the second house plans and are so excited to start building as this will be for us! Stephen was great and answered all of my questions and gave great suggestions on things we could do!

Thanks House Plan Gallery!

It will be a beautiful home with extra memories from the flood...

When my wife and I decided to undertake the project of building a house we had no idea what we were going to experience.

Never having built before, it was a leap of faith. After perusing untold hundreds of plans we finally settled on the 3 bedroom / 2 bath HPG-1903 house plan from House Plan Gallery.com, and With minor changes it was what we were looking for. The project began.

We worked on it through the fall and winter here in Minot, North Dakota. Through the cold winter and through the spring storms until recently in June of 2011 we were ready to lay the flooring and carpets.

Then, the unthinkable happened. Our city had a 150 year record flood. The house filled with water all the way to the main floor. It was then that we really experienced what was a life moment.

The National Guard came through with their loud speakers as we were removing things from the shop that we have on the property. As they did, I looked around me and saw the friends gathered to help. At that moment along with my 17 year old son and myself there was a mother with her five daughters and a couple of other ladies from our church and we were stranded without any vehicle to escape with. The levies were breached and we were in a very vulnerable position.

The house did not matter, the things did not matter; all that mattered was that we wanted the precious people around us to be safe. With the help of other flood fleeing escapees we were able to make our getaway.

When it all comes down to it, the things in life aren't what life is about at all. What really matters is relationships. God, family and friends. I have been a pastor for over 20 years and thought I realized thiS, but that moment brought it home to me in a profound way. I suppose we wi ll fix the flood damage on the house when we get access again.

It will be a beautiful home with extra memories from the flood. Yet, never will I forget mo matter how much we enjoy it that the house is not our dream. Our dream is the people that will grace our doorstep, the laughter that will echo against the walls, and the loved ones that share the special moments that will happen along the way.

Thanks House Plan Gallery for helping us to design our dream home!

We would recommend this company highly!

My husband and I decided to build a home and we visited several Internet sites and found this site to have a huge selection and at a great price. This company was wonderful with communication, efficiency, and options. We wanted to make a few changes to the plan and it was done politely and quickly. The website was easy to use and the plans and staff very professional. We would recommend this company highly. We are in the house now and it has proved to be exactly as hoped.
