The tiny house movement has been in the news recently thanks to the growing number of people who have decided to give up their traditional lives for the tiny house life. But what exactly are tiny houses? And why are people so enamored by them?

Instead, tiny houses encourage you to keep only what is necessary and learn to enjoy simple pleasures and live a bigger life.

And when it comes to joining the tiny house movement, you can either buy a tiny house or build one of your own. Both have their perks, but there’s a unique pleasure in choosing the layout of your tiny house and seeing it come to life.

New Farmhouse Home Plan With Bonus Room and 2-3 Car Garage

New Farmhouse Plan 82541

  • Total Living Area: 2269 SQ FT
  • Bedrooms: 3
  • Bathrooms: 2.5
  • Garage: 2-3 Bay
  • Dimensions: 75’6 Wide x 63’10 Deep

This charming farmhouse style house plan is sure to win your heart. This home plan gives you just over 2,200 square feet of living space with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and 1 half bath. Unlike a traditional farmhouse house plan, this plan gives you a 2-car garage for your mechanical horses, and there is the option to expand to a 3-car garage size.

The outside of this home gives you lovely board and batten siding with stone accents and has a unique roof line that really ramps up the curb appeal.

On the inside of the plan, you will find a large great room that features a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. Throw open the French doors and walk outside to the covered grilling porch. Steaks and hamburgers made at home are better than any restaurant!

The kitchen is designed for the chef who appreciates having plenty of elbow room. The pantry measures 8′ x 6′, so go ahead and wield your coupons at the store and buy in bulk because you will not lack for storage.

The kids will enjoy having a snack at the island breakfast bar after school. When it comes to the family meal, you will gather in the breakfast room or opt for something more formal in the dining room.

The master suite has plenty of space and is located on the rear of the house for privacy and includes everything on your wish list: double vanity, free-standing tub, separate shower, and private water closet.

Mom and Dad will also appreciate the door connecting their walk-in closet to the laundry room. Now you don’t have to lug a laundry basket through the house. Chores just became that much easier!

When it comes to the kids though, they will be coming from across the house with their laundry baskets. Teach them to do laundry when they are young, I always say! The kids will share a Jack and Jill bathroom.

When you are ready to expand the living space, finish the bonus room over the garage, and make it into a bedroom or game room. The bonus room will certainly add more value to a house that is already a seller’s dream when it comes to real estate!

In entering the front door, you immediately feel the openness of the vaulted great room, spacious kitchen, and dining area.

The fireplace in the great room adds to that open, inviting feeling. Just imagine a plush couch and a leather armchair arranged in a semi-circle and facing the fireplace. Your family will always remember the time you spend here together, and your friends will not want to leave at the night’s end.

The kitchen features an island with an eating bar. Here, the kids will sit in a row and compliment your cooking after a hearty breakfast of toast, bacon and eggs.

The kitchen is a blank canvas waiting for your choice of appliances, cabinets, counter tops, back splash and paint color!

Also, included off of the dining area is a large walk in pantry and spacious laundry room. The L-shaped counter offers a place to fold laundry, and cabinets can be added for storage.

A small closet in the hallway is a convenient place for brooms and cleaning supplies to keep them close-at-hand yet out-of-sight.

The split floor plan allows a nice escape to the master suite with generous master bath and walk-in closet. A double vanity gives the couple plenty of elbow room while preparing for the day.

Two other bedrooms on the left side of the house have closets and share a spacious bathroom. The bedrooms are almost exactly the same size, eliminating any fights the children may have about who gets the best room.

The back covered porch opens onto a large 2 car carport with storage room.

Best of all, you can enjoy the large basement as an extended family living area for a kids play room, home office, media room, or anything you’d like!
