Mountain House Plans

In a world full of concrete buildings, technology, and computer screens, it’s important to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. In fact, scientists recommend spending at least 2 hours outside weekly!

That’s the benefit of a mountain home: You can enjoy nature from your very own front porch. With a spacious rustic home, you can explore the great outdoors within the comfort of your backyard—without traffic sounds or loud neighbors.

That’s because mountain or rustic house plans are designed with space and comfort in mind. Though the interior may have more than 3,000 square feet of usable space, it doesn't separate the family from the central living area.

Find a moment to breathe in the fresh mountain air daily when you select a rustic-style mountain home from Monster House Plans. These homes are perfect for large families or individuals looking to connect with nature. They can improve your overall health and have any feature you desire.

The Perks of Owning a Mountain Home

Calling all nature enthusiasts: A mountain home offers a stunning view of the great outdoors. Your location's natural flora and fauna will come alive in your backyard, meaning you may see some wild deer running through or find native wildflowers growing on the edge of your property.

Overlook the mountainous or rugged terrain right from your wrap-around porch or lanai. Wherever you build your dream home, you’ll have a stunning view of the outdoors. Alternatively, you could use any mountain home as a vacation destination to soak in the natural surroundings whenever you need to escape the city.

Rustic mountain home plans are designed with space and comfort in mind. Many homes have a square footage of over 3,000 for homeowners to enjoy and decorate as they please. Many rustic homes feature vaulted ceilings and open floor plans, so homeowners can maximize their space and feel relaxed in their dream home.

On the outside, rustic homes are typically built on large plots of land, so families with children and pets have a spacious yard to explore. The outdoor porch is a perfect spot to curl up with a good book while watching young children play in the yard.

One of the best parts about owning a mountain home is that the stunning architecture adds to the beauty of the natural environment. With large decks, dormer windows, and stone columns, this home will blend into nature rather than detract from it.

Floor Plans for Comfy Living

Our floor plans come in many different designs and provide as little or as much space as necessary for both small and large families. Studies and offices can be converted to additional bedrooms for guests.

The plans also have multiple porches in the design, providing a covered porch in the front and a grilling porch off the family room in the back.

You don’t have to live in the country or the highlands to benefit from rustic house plans. These homes will stand beautifully anywhere in the country. They range in size and style and are always customizable to suit your family’s needs.

Notable Exterior Details

When you have the beauty of the outdoors in your backyard, you’ll want a home that complements the surrounding landscape. These types of homes use natural materials to complement the surrounding landscape. Stone, brick, and wood are oftentimes combined in the design, including metal roofs for their low-maintenance value.

Some homes have an A-frame design with steep roofs for building in areas where the snow falls for months. Other exterior features include:

  • A-frame design
  • Dormers
  • Exposed wood beams
  • Tall chimneys
  • Steep roofs
  • Front and side gables
  • Stone or wood porch columns
Craftsman House Plan 61-124

Look at the exterior details on Plan #61-124: The stone columns at the front entrance offer guests a warm welcome. And, of course, the beautiful stone siding completes the rustic exterior look.

Depending on your desired mountain home location, you might encounter hazardous weather. However, architects designing mountain-style houses planned for this—the steep roofs featured in these homes help snow and rain slide off to prevent damage from inclement weather.

Speaking of the roof, this elegant design uses dormer windows to amplify the exterior design of the house. These windows add to the rustic feeling of the house while providing an opulent light source throughout the inside.

Distinguishing Interior Details

The interior, though spacious in design, feels purposeful and compact.

Accessing the bedrooms or joining everyone on the lanai directly from the living room is easy. A large fireplace creates a focal point in the living room and is accented by a stone wall. Exposed wooden beams add to the design and create cohesion between the interior and the exterior.

Other interior features include:

  • Welcoming foyers
  • Separate office spaces
  • Breakfast nooks
  • Storage closets
  • Open-concept kitchens

When the exterior features large, steep roofs, the interior will likely have high-rise ceilings. Exposed beams are featured within the great room to accentuate the interior and increase the rustic feel.

The majority of mountain home plans feature an office space near the foyer. This space is ideal for individuals who work from home. Homeowners can watch for children getting off the school bus, mail deliveries, or expected company without ever leaving their home office!

Open floor plans are strongly featured in mountain houses. When you have gorgeous lifted ceilings and ample square footage, you don’t want the rooms of the house to feel closed off by walls.

An open floor plan combines the living room, kitchen, and dining room on the main floor into one ample space, so homeowners can prepare a meal while monitoring children or entertaining guests in the living room.

With a mountain home, you’ll have unique-shaped rooms throughout the house. These homes show off stunning architectural designs while providing a rustic feel on the inside.

Sometimes, one design style isn’t enough to obtain your perfect dream home. Luckily, the mountain home designs from Monster House Plans can be versatile, meaning you can find the best home with all your desired features.
