Recreational house plans are intended to capture the spirit and emotions of rural Canada. The term recreational house plans is used to encompass a wide gamut of floor plans from simple traditional ranch house plans to large, rambling country farm house plans. Rural homes are warm and inviting and common design elements include a covered front porch, steeply pitched rooflines, and trimmed, multi-pane windows often with shutters. Other features found in recreational homes may include wrap-around or rear porches, detached or setback garages and fireplaces. Country style houses can be found in almost all regions of Canada and range from small cottage house plans to luxury ramblers.
