Modern Farmhouse Plan with Outdoor Kitchen and Bonus Room Over Garage
Modern Farmhouse Plan 51981 is our best-selling home plan of 2019! Orders come in every day, and this home will soon be popping up all over the country in new construction.
Please take the time to check out this plan on our Facebook Group Page.
What makes this home design so appealing?
Farmhouse Style is popular in home decor with distressed finishes and rustic furniture. Weddings are held in country chic locations with mason jar drinking glasses. Even today's clothing (think plaid flannel) is influenced by our heart's desire to embrace a lifestyle which is free from modern distractions.
Many historic farmhouses were constructed with materials that were cut and shaped by hand. Modern Farmhouse Plan 51981 features rugged porch columns stained with a deep, rich finish and matching board and batten shutters. You can almost picture your grandfather sanding these beams before installing them on the front porch.
Ah, the front porch...this is where you get the first hugs from family when you arrive home.
White-washed brick is combined with vertical siding. The Ranch House Style floor plan ensures that this home will fit into new housing developments all over the country. Your home will be a favorite in the neighborhood.
Or, if you have decided to leave the highly-populated communities behind, this home will become a real farmhouse with all of the modern conveniences. Your wish-list items are included in this Farmhouse Design!
You found the right home for a big family.
Do you have a multi-generational family, or are you blessed with many children? Excellent design gives every family member comfortable private space.
With a total of 2373 square feet, this home plan offers 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Open living space allows you to interact with family and keep an eye on the younger children during daily activities.
Place a hall tree in the foyer to collect your keys and hang your jacket. Drop into a plush couch in the living room and pluck a book from one of the built-ins flanking the tall brick fireplace.
Across the room, the kitchen is finished with light gray cabinets reaching to the ceiling, stainless-steel appliances, antique-style pendant lights, pearly back splash tiles and clean granite counter tops.
Bar seating is the perfect place to have breakfast or sit and talk to the cook.
The tall cabinet by the refrigerator opens like a secret doorway to a huge pantry measuring 8'4 x 5'6!
Across the back of the living space, abundant windows maximize natural light and provide views to the rear covered porch and back yard.
Those who love Farmhouse Style will relish time spent outside. An optional outdoor kitchen is drawn on the plans for inspiration.
In the master bedroom, the homeowner who provided these interior photographs has a tray ceiling with beautiful wood panels.
French doors open into a fully-appointed ensuite with his and her vanities, linen storage closets, whirlpool tub, separate shower, and a private water closet. A huge master closet measuring 7' x 16' connects by pocket door to the utility room. This convenient little detail is highly requested!
The utility room has a sink and plenty of space for folding laundry.
The garage entrance gives you immediate access to a bonus room staircase, a powder room, and storage lockers where you can drop off book bags, purses, and sporting equipment. It's so much easier to keep a tidy house when you have a place for everything!
As for the bonus room, you may want to use it for storage or finish it (along with the extra bathroom) to use for a game room!
What is the maximum number of bedrooms?
Add some drywall and a/c to the bonus room, and you will have a total of 5 bedrooms! Bedrooms 2 and 3 are well-sized, and bedroom 4 could be used as an office if desired. Notice the built-in shelves.
This plan offers a basement foundation for an additional fee as well. The basement staircase entrance is stacked with the bonus room stairs and accessed from the 2 car garage.

Ask the Designer any question you may have. NOTE: If you have a plan modification question, please click on the Plan Modifications tab above.
A: The plans call for 2x6 rafters and do not account for any snow loads. The plans will need to be modified by a local designer/engineer to account for loads in your location.
A: The 3 car garage area is 873 sf, and that is unfinished space. The living area stays the same.
A: The depth of the 3 car version increases by 4'-8".
A: 18' wide x 8' tall
A: The dishwasher is shown to the right of the kitchen sink....labeled as "DW".
A: Square footage is measured around the heated perimeter to the exterior face of the stud walls.
A: The hallways are approximately 3'-6" wide.
A: The bonus room size will increase in depth by approximately 10-11 feet with the 3rd car option. Moving the steps would not really gain you much more footage and would require modifications to the plans.
A: We do not have any photos of the vaulted ceiling modification at this time.
A: The basement option is for a foundation option only. The basement level is unfinished, so there is no floorplan available. The area of the basement will be the same area as the main level living area.
A: The walkout basement is to the rear of the home and provides doors and windows in a similar pattern as the main floor above. Door/window locations can be customized on site with your builder based on your specific needs.
A: There are multiple pitches on this design. They are 12:12, 9:12, 4:12 and 3:12. These will be labeled on the exterior elevations and roof plan of the construction documents.
A: The plan measures 70'-6" wide and 66'-10" deep. These measurements are to the exterior of the studwall and do not include brick or roof overhangs.
A: Only our walkout basement option has exterior doors. All of our walkout options are on the rear of the plan unless the garage is in the rear....in which case we do not offer a walkout option.
A: The bonus room for the original plan will be shown just like the image shows on the website. Since the bonus room is contained within the roof framing of the garage, the three car option will increase the size of the bonus room to the same length as the garage below (an additional 11'). With regards to maximizing headroom, it certainly is possible to make the bonus room into a full two story design with full height walls above the garage and a separate roof above. However, this will be a very costly modification to the plans and in my personal opinion, will not look very good. If you are interested in adding additional space, my suggestion would be to consider adding bonus space above the existing master bedroom and bath. The ceiling framing structure could be modified to accommodate the floor above. You can click the "Modifications" link to receive a price and timeframe for any of these changes.
A: All of our basements are unfinished, so there is no floorplan layout available. The basement area will be the same as the heated space on the main floor.
A: No...this is for exterior aesthetics only.
A: Additional build license is $495.
A: Hallways are 3-6 and doors to rooms requested are2-8.
A: The plan is not designed specifically for handicap accessibility and would require modifications to make it that way. Click the "Modifications" link for a price and timeline.
A: The square footage would remain the same since the stairs are already included in the heated area of the first floor (2373).
A: Structural drawings are not included since they must be specific to the site where the plan will be constructed. The plans are showing stick framed construction, but you can present the plans to a truss manufacturer to have trusses designed if desired.
A: Framing plans are not included since they are specific to the area of construction.
A: The square footage of the two bedrooms, hallway, and bathroom is approximately 585 sf. The room sizes given are only for the room that they are written in. The hallway is approximately 3'-6" wide.
A: The fireplace is selected by the owner, and for that reason, we do not know the exact size. Judging by the photos, it appears to be a 32" or 36" unit.
A: All of our CAD files are saved back to 2004 edition so that older versions of AutoCad can open them. PDF file is included in all CAD orders.
A: The tub alcove is the same as the dimensions shown on the floorplan....42" x 72". Freestanding tubs come in various sizes, but there are certainly some that would fit just fine within that space.
A: This type of door is available at numerous building supply stores across the country. Big box stores such as Lowes and Home Depot typically don't stock 8' tall doors so you will likely need to find a local building supplier or door/window business to purchase these.
A: Unfortunately, we only release fully dimensioned plans as a part of a purchase. We provide basic information on the website so that customers can see the layout, general sizes, and footages. More detailed drawings will be included in the construction documents that you receive when purchasing the plans. Most builders should be able to provide you with a general sense of the cost of construction based on the square footage provided.
A: The windows are of varying sizes throughout the plan. Each window size will be listed on the floorplan of the purchased working drawings. The sizes may also vary slightly based on which window manufacturer you select.
A: There is not an option for a 3 car front garage. Only a side load garage option is available with 3 cars.
A: Our house plans do not include mechanical or plumbing drawings for the simple fact that they are sold as a "stock" house plan and are sold all across the nation. Since plumbing and hvac systems are totally reliant on the conditions present at the construction site, these items cannot be included in a stock house plan since that site information is not known. These drawings must be obtained by a local engineer or mechanical contractor.
A: The windows are shown on the presentation floor plan image, but the sizes are different depending on the location. The plans that you purchase will have the window sizes of each individual window listed so that your window supplier can order the correct size.
A: The fireplace area is shown on the plans as 5'-4" wide, so it can support a tv the same size if mounted on the wall. If sitting on a mantle, it will depend on the gas log unit that you select and mantle design.
A: 14" timber and 6" for gable end timbers
A: Due to the way the design is framed, only 8' tall doors like the one shown can be accommodated in the garage. To change the plan to front entry versus side entry, click the "Modifications" link to inquire about a price and timeframe to make the change.
A: You would not be required to re-purchase the plan as long as the timeframe elapsed is reasonable. There might be a re-fulfillment fee that would be assessed, but you can call for additional details should the need arise for you to swap foundations.
A: Square footage should always be based on the exterior perimeter. The footage on this plan is calculated to the exterior of the studwall. Masonry is not included
A: The highest pitch on the plan is 12:12. The working drawings will show and label the pitch of each roof plane on the elevations as well as the roof plan.
A: The vaulted ceiling is only for the great room and runs left to right with the fireplace at the peak. It is only a 5:12 vault due to the roof framing clearance. Sorry, there is no picture. If the 2x6 wall option is chosen the additional two inches goes to the interior of the plan. Going to the exterior would change every dimension on the exterior of the house resulting in a much higher fee. Exterior walls and perimeter of heated space are included in 2x6 wall option.
A: The cabinets depicted in the photographs were selected by the owner, so we do not have exact dimensions. The photos show them going all the way to the ceiling which is 10'. Typically the bottom of cabinets is somewhere around 4'-6" above the floor, so that would make the upper cabinets approximately 5'-6" tall.
A: Dining, Bedroom 4, and Great Room windows are 7'. All other full sized windows are 6'. Window sizes for each opening will be listed on the floor plan next to each window.
A: The ceiling height of the garage is 9'.
A: Unfortunately, we do not have presentation images for every possible combination of options. The basement stairs in the three car option will be in exactly the same place as they are shown in the regular version and the bonus room will extend the same length as the longer garage. As for the elevations, they will look the same, but with an extra garage bay added to the front.
A: We do not have this exact layout in a smaller footage, but plans 56903 and 56911 are similar in a smaller footage.
A: The plans are not engineered for a specific location. Therefore structural drawings are not included due to the varying requirements from one location to another. If structural drawings are required for your permit, they must be obtained by a local engineer familiar with the loading specifications of your site location.
A: Unfortunately not....the roof line doesn't allow enough headroom for this option.
A: All windows are 32" wide with the exception of the bathrooms and pantry which are 24" wide.
A: That is correct...keep in mind that the CAD files will be submitted in .dwg file format which means that you will need AutoCAD software in order to make changes to the plan.
A: Either under the floor or through the roof. This is to be determined on site.
A: Good morning, The only other attic space accessible from the bonus room would be over the master suite. There is not adequate headroom to get to the other areas of the house due to the roof line. Thanks, Jason
A: Only a low sloped vault is possible due to the roof line above. This would increase the height of the great room by 2-3 ft. Thanks,
A: If you purchase the PDF plan, you can print the drawings on whatever paper size you desire. Drawings printed to scale will need to be on 24"x36" paper.
A: The house is painted brick with board and batten siding in the front gables. Thanks, Jason
A: We do not have a plan like this without a garage. Removing the garage will significantly alter the exterior of the home and it will no longer resemble the plan as it currently is. If you are interested in removing the garage, you can request a modification quote to do so by clicking the link at the top of the page labeled "Modifications". Thanks, Jason
A: If you are referring to the bonus room, it is not included in the heated square footage of 2373. It is listed at 336 s.f., so that would total 2709.
A: Yes...the vault will have to be low sloped due to the roof line above though.
A: Plan 56915 (2210 sf) is a similar floor plan, however the exterior is quite a bit different. Perhaps you would be interested in plan 51991 (2281 sf) which is also a similar floor plan, or plan 56911 (2073 sf) which is a similar exterior. Thanks, Jason
A: The great room could indeed be vaulted. Due to the roof pitches and configuration, the pitch of the vault could only be around a 5:12 vault.
A: The dimensions for the design are: 70'-6" Wide x 66'-10" Deep
A: The floor joists for the bonus space are specified at 16" pre-engineered joists. The ceiling height of the garage is 9' and the garage door is an 8' door.
A: We do not have any specific information regarding finishes, manufacturer specs, colors, etc. All these items are selected by the homeowner.
A: The total heated area of the design is 2373 which does not include the bonus room. Unheated spaces (including bonus) total 1495 sf making the total under roof footage 3868 sf.
A: The ceiling could be vaulted, but would have to be a low-pitch vault since it would interfere with the roof structure. As for the exterior materials, the plan currently shows a painted brick exterior. Siding or any other painted exterior material could be used in its place as desired.
A: A materials estimate is available for this plan in it's original format (slab or crawlspace). Additional options such as basement foundation, 2x6 walls, etc. are not included. You can request the materials estimate at the time you place your order. We will add the option to the price list.
A: In the attic space. Thanks!
A: This distance is 5'. Thanks,
A: Yes you can! Please click the "Modifications" tab above to get more information.
A: The national average for a house is running right at $125.00 per SF. You can get more detailed information by clicking the Cost-To-Build tab above. Sorry, but we cannot give cost estimates for garage, multifamily or project plans.
