When you are looking for house plans, there are many things to consider. How many bedrooms do you need? How much room do you want? Do you want a formal dining area or not? Do you want a formal living area or not? Do you want a large kitchen? All of those things need to be considered and some will need to be compromised on. One thing you absolutely cannot compromise on is the comfort that your home is going to give you.
A home, especially one that you are building, should be the most comforting place in the world for you. You should feel like you can relax there after a long day of working. And Rustic plans are perfect for this.
Rustic Style House Plans
The Rustic style evolved from years of people looking for elegance while being able to build something that would withstand the tough climate of mountain living. This style gives you beautiful airy views with large open windows. This gives you the feeling of space and lets you enjoy the spectacular views that are all around you.
The other great thing about Rustic style houses is that they are geared toward comfort. The Rustic style was developed by people that worked hard and it shows. It is definitely a style to promote relaxation. So, check out a few more of our great Rustic style plans. Maybe you will find one that gives you a perfect place to relax.
Adirondack Place (MEN 5025)
This beautiful home gives you over 2,000 square feet of living area with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. This home features timber trusses, a metal roof and a gorgeous stone lining the outside. Coming in from the entryway you enter an open floor plan with a Great Room, Dining Room and Kitchen area. The Great Room features a large stonework fireplace and gives the whole area a warm cozy feel. The Kitchen features a large high bar with room for four to sit comfortably while entertaining.

No more hunting for clothes with wet dripping hair. Just outside of the Master Suite is a laundry area and the half bath. The half bath is convenient to both the kitchen and the bedroom areas.
Moving down the hall you find Bedroom 2 and 3. The bedrooms both feature a closet with a sliding barn door to give you that country feel. They also feature a window seat, not just in both bedrooms, but in the hallway as well. These window seats give you a comfy place to read or listen to music and enjoy the scenery on those days when you just don’t want to go outside. Both bedrooms also have access to an adjoining bathroom. The first floor is completed by a grilling porch just outside of the Great Room.
The basement, which is accessed by the stairs located between the Master Suite and Kitchen, opens up into a large Game Room with an attached full bath with a walk-in shower.

This side of the home also features Bedroom 2 which is large for a secondary bedroom and has its own in-suite Bathroom and walk-in closet. The other side of the home is taken up by the Master Suite.
