Craftsman House Plan

The Home Store offers over 450 standard floor plans for modular homes. Most of our customers can usually find a few modular plans that come close to meeting their needs. If you select one of our standard modular home plans, it will save you time and simplify your work, since the design, engineering, and pricing have already been done by us. You will also save money, since our standard modular house plans are engineered to be built economically.

If you don't find any suitable modular home floor plans amongst the sampling we have put on our web site, please contact us to discuss what type of plan would better fit your needs. We might be able to help you with one of our many other standard modular house floor plans. If none of our standard floor plans for modular homes work for you, we'll be happy to help you design one of our custom modular home floor plans. If you already have some custom modular floor plans in mind, we'll tell you if they can be built as a modular. If your modular house floor plans cannot be built as a modular home, we will help you design one of our custom modular home plans offering similar features.

All of our standard modular home plans typically include a floor plan and an exterior elevation. The modular floor plans show the location and size of each room, while the elevations provide an idea of what the finished house will look like on the outside. When looking through our selection of modular home plans, do not be misled by the pairing of modular home floor plans and exterior drawings into thinking that you cannot make adjustments. In fact, each of ou floor plans for modular homes can have a multitude of exterior looks, and each exterior look can be applied to many different modular house floor plans. For example, all homes can have a garage and porch, even if the artist has not included them in the drawing. Likewise, you can adjust the slope of the roof, add dormers and decorative gables, and opt for oversized roof overhangs if you choose, regardless of what you see in the drawing.

Finding the Right Plan

Before looking through our selection of modular house plans, first determine which features are most important to you. Answering the following questions will help you clarify your priorities.

  • What do like about the floor plan of your current home? What would you change?
  • What types of floor plans have you liked in other homes, including model homes and homes of family and friends?
  • What type of modular floor plans will fit best in your new neighborhood?
  • What type of modular home floor plans will work best with the topography of your lot?
  • What modular home plans will allow you to take advantage of the sun?
  • What is your ideal budget? What is the most you can spend, leaving 2 or 3 percent aside as a contingency fund?
  • Do you need all of the space finished right away, or will an expandable plan work best, such as one of our unfinished modular cape cod floor plans or raised ranch plans?
  • Do you prefer one-story or two-story living?
  • How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you need?
  • Do you prefer an informal family room separate from a more formal living room?
  • Do you prefer an informal eating area ("nook") separate from a more formal dining room?
  • Do you need a study or home office?
  • Do you want the laundry on the first floor, second floor, or in the basement?
  • Would you like an exercise room?
  • What other rooms would you like to have?
  • Are you counting on a walk-in closet or pantry?
  • How big of a kitchen would you like?
  • How big would you like the rooms in your house to be? (Measuring all of the rooms in your own home as well as in model homes and recording this for future reference will help you immensely when designing a new home.)
