Stunning Farmhouse Floor Plans + Inspiration

Hey friends! I’m excited to be back again talking about the home building process. Who can relate to the emotional roller coaster of building a house? This week we scratched our initial plans and decided to go a totally different direction with the home. Which means having an architect draw plans from…my brain? Yikers. 

Needless to say, I’ve spent a ridiculous number of hours scouring the internet for modern farmhouse inspiration to guide our architect “yes, if you can put that roofline, with those widows, and add a loft here…uhhuh…a little to the left…” I’m convinced our house will be a Frankenstien-esque conglomeration of about 3000 of my “Pins” but hey, it’ll be unique I guess!

Speaking of Pins, my number one most re-pinned link is a gorgeous Nicholas Lee farmhouse plan that has been the springboard for our new home. So, I figured: Give the people what they want! By popular demand, I’ve compiled a list of some of the greatest modern farmhouse floor plans on the internet, in addition to some real-life Modern Farmhouses for you to drool over. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

This modern farmhouse from RedBud Custom Homes in Austin, TX  is EVERYTHING. And their finish work is divine!

I also love this ultra-contemporary farmhouse from Olsen Studios in Dallas, TX. Talk about a great outdoor living space! See the Houzz gallery here.
Last one! This more traditional beauty can be found in my home state of WA!  Dan Nelson Designs knocked it out of the park. I don’t love the interior, but the view and that exterior won me over!  Did I spy a greenhouse!? Ahhhh!

How’s that for your daily dose of farmhouse-eye-candy!? Anyone feel really bad for our architect now? Maybe I should bake him some cookies or something. In all seriousness though, the work that architects and contractors do amazes me…how fun to be the person that gets to bring a client’s vision to life in a really big way! This continues to be such a learning process for us, and I’m excited to share the ups and downs with y’all!

One big success we had this past week was finding the land we are going to build on. Praise the Lord!
