Want Your Own MCM Home: Why Not Build?

Today finding a classic mid-century modern home to purchase in some cities and towns is next to impossible. Whether you live in a part of the country where these homes were just not built in vast quantity, or if you are in an area where they are now so coveted that your chances of actually getting your hands on one is unrealistic. Well, have no fear – you can now go ahead and actually purchase plans on-line and have your own new and improved contemporary home built for you!

The House Plan Site offers a wide variety of house plans sorted by various categories such as square footage and house style. You are then able to select the plan and review the plans online before making your final purchase. Even if you’re just looking for some great ideas before working with your architect, this site is a great resource for ideas.

One of my favourite plans: Contemporary House Plan D61-2056

Front of House


Back of House

Floor Plan

This is a 2056 sq/ft contemporary house plan with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Large floor-to-ceiling windows and doors are perfect for lots with a view. This great room plan works for both casual living and semi-formal entertaining. The kitchen, dining and living areas are semi-open to each other, with a large 2-way fireplace providing some separation between the areas. The master bedroom looks out to the backyard through three floor-to-ceiling windows, and the attached bath offers two sinks, a separate tub and dual-head shower, and walk-in closet.

Very groovy!
