HISTORIC HOME PLANS
PRAIRIE STYLE HOUSE PLANS
The Prairie Style house plans developed towards the end of the 19th century around the Great Lakes states and quickly evolved a unique look. Prairie Style houses reflect the wide open spaces of the prairie. Prairie Style house plans spread across the ground, emphasizing the horizontal, with broad roof overhangs and terraces extending the floor plane of the house into the surrounding landscape. Prairie Style houses also draw from the surrounding natural materials, using them in a way that preserves the integrity of each material's unique beauty.
