Our traditional house plans collection contains a variety of styles that do not fit clearly into our other design styles but that contain characteristics of older home styles including columns, gables and dormers. You'll discover many two story house plans in this collection that sport covered entries, at least one front facing gable, symmetrically spaced windows and modest ornamentation. If you have a family with young kids, a traditional 2 story house plan might be perfect for you, as two story designs allow for a clear separation of spaces (e.g. after the kids go to sleep upstairs, the parents can watch TV or entertain guests on the main level). If you're interested in a clutter-free house plan, be sure to select a traditional house plan that boasts a mudroom and/or other organizational elements, like pantry shelves or office built-ins.
