Farmhouses are typical primary residences in many agricultural or rural areas of the country. They often provide the many functionalities needed for families that keep animals in different functions. They may additionally include the plans for an individual barn. These designs can end up forming a courtyard the same way that an L-shaped or U-shaped one may.
It’s most common for them to be rectangular with a central fireplace. It helps heat the entire home. The building materials used to build it are traditionally locally sourced.
By considering the interior, you can create a rustic feel. Many people may associate it with the style they want. It provides a level of warmth and a feeling of tradition. It is not to say you can’t incorporate modern components when deciding what your future space will look like.
A farmhouse is also usually thought of along with its neutral colors. It has a great focus on functionality. You may perhaps not get the most unique modern, mid-century style. Those styles are also not what would best serve your needs anyway.
The light colors are often chosen as survivors of the test of time. They’re included both inside and outside. The trend isn’t likely to change just because design trends are ever-evolving. A common feature many of them include is the functionality of wrap-around porches.

Carriage houses also go under other names. They include coach houses or remises. They got their name because they used to be used for carriages. The probability of your family using it for that specific purpose is relatively small.
They’ve grown a lot in functionality from the original, single-level purpose to their popularity as residential buildings. Besides being popular for new construction, many original carriages have been converted. They now serve a mixture of purposes, such as Mother-in-law suites or guest houses.
Changing regulation across the country means some places allowed their use for multi-generational housing. Many of these carriages used to be small. Their development has included the designs now offered in many sizes. They come with varying levels of intricate details.
Today’s designs may also be compared to a detached garage with living space on the second floor. Other people interested in the carriages will want to visit the section on cottages. It’s great to consider for its affordability while still providing indoor parking.
How many garages do you want?
Are you building your dream? It is only natural to consider whether you have specific wishes regarding the number of garages. Storage space is important for you to have. Many families think having a single garage is fine. Having a double garage maybe that extra piece of luxury that takes your home from being nice to spectacular. A garage can serve various functions. It can either be where you do your laundry or where you have gym equipment. It can also be where you store all those things you don’t want lying around inside your main abode. The amount of storage you are hoping to add should be taken seriously. You need to find the right design to go with that includes your garage needs.
4 bedroom places offer a lot of flexibility. Your plot of land may have certain limitations. You may have certain crucial features that need to be considered. Selecting the right design can be tough. Some things to consider include:
|Special factors to consider|
|Daylight basement||Open concept||Narrow lot|
|Waterfront||Contemporary||With in-law suite|
The Master Suite
It is probably more important than the number of garages. The master suite and its various features are crucial. Do you like waking up with the sun shining on your face? Would you rather have a space where it is very easy to block out all the light from the outside? You could have certain wishes for the bathroom that is attached. It can have its jacuzzi or perhaps a massive steam shower.
Mistakes to avoid:
- Not considering the family’s future needs
- Neglecting the master suite
- Forgetting about functional spaces, like the mudroom
- Forgetting storage
Do you want big or small?
You may be able to stuff many bedrooms into a small space. It doesn’t mean that it will make it a comfortable space to live in. We encourage you to also think about how big you hope to build. You are unlikely to find any comfortable 4 bedroom places 1,000 square feet. You will likely need to look for ones at least 1,500 square feet. Otherwise, you don’t have a design where it makes sense to incorporate that many bedrooms. Don’t look into anything smaller than 1,500 square feet if you want both bedrooms and bathrooms. It’s still a relatively decent size while having other dimensions work for your needs.
Simple or modern?
Our designs on the website are a great starting point to make your dreams come true. There are still some that are more modern. Others have a more simplistic feel to them. Simpler options have stood the test of time and shown that they can retain their value for decade upon decade. You might not necessarily be in the market to build a safe bet. You want to build a space that will leave an impression. You are more drawn to modern designs. There is a range that will incorporate elements from both styles. It may be a good compromise that will give everyone in your family the features they desire.
It could be the case that you are a big fan of flat roofs. You still want a big open concept in the middle. Perhaps you would rather want a ranch.
2 or 3 bathrooms?
You probably already know that mornings don’t always go as smoothly as you may hope. You might even realize that it often comes down to people having access to bathrooms. Your master suite will have its bathroom attached to it. The rest of the family members will be arguing over who gets to shower first. It can be a struggle!
The safer bet is to go with an additional bathroom. It can also be convenient when you are having guests over. You can assign one bathroom only to be used by your guests in those times. For a 4 bedroom model, we recommend that you go with at least 2 bathrooms. Consider designs with 3 bathrooms, too.
- Great for modest-sized families.
- Cheap to build.
- Adequate amount of space.
- Not for large families
- It doesn’t say anything about the style you choose.
- You may outgrow this house.
Do you want one that stands out with its unique shape?
We have great options if you want a home that will stand out as you enter. Some include U-shaped and H-shaped ones. They tend to lean more towards the modern style. We also have more traditional L-shaped styles that make it easy to add as many garages as you want. You don’t need an oddly shaped style to allow a big driveway that the kids can play in.
A 4-bedroom place is pretty standard in terms of its build. The style you choose for it doesn’t have to be. Here are some ways you can make your 4 bedroom build stand out:
|Styles to consider|
Do you want to go big with 4 master suites?
Suppose you have enough land to build on or are trying to build something substantial. We have choices that have 4 bedrooms. We also have some with 4 master suites. On top of that, they commonly have one or two shared bathrooms in the living space. When you have teenagers, you don’t want to discuss who gets to use the bathroom at what point. That is when you build where everyone has a bathroom. It saves you from any arguing.
What sort of kitchen do you want?
The kitchen area is one where many families like to spend a lot of their time. If you like cooking big meals and entertaining your guests, it is only natural to consider your needs for that space. You are planning the building of your future home, and the kitchen needs to be perfect.
Do you have a specific thought about which part of the kitchen needs to be placed in? Perhaps you want it to be right in front of the entrance. It will let you greet everyone as they enter without having to lose track of your cooking. Maybe you would rather that the kitchen is on one side of the house. It doesn’t take up as much visual space when you don’t plan on using it often.
Do you want to install a pool?
Suppose you have smaller kids. You know you are in the process of finding the design. There is a good probability your kids are begging you to have a pool installed. They may even promise they will do the cleaning. Not surprisingly, a pool is a great place to hang out with friends and family. It’s a place where you can grill and entertain all summer long.
Besides that, a pool is also a great way to exercise. Some users want to include a pool when building their next home. We are not saying it is for everyone, but many people love to have this feature.
- Great for children
- Great to entertain at
- Great for exercise
- Expensive to build
- Expensive to maintain
- It doesn’t increase the value of the house much.
4 bedroom designs are great investments
Building a modern design may seem attractive. It’s not always the best financial decision. The best financial decision you can make is to be conscious of what you want and only build something. You’ll still want to make sure it covers your needs.
Rather than going overboard and building a house, you won’t like, build something that fits your needs. It is a much better financial decision. It should come to you as no surprise as it costs more to build a bigger one. There are exceptions to that rule. It still usually holds. It means bigger ones are generally more expensive to build.
Another big advantage to these designs is that they are so common. It means that you will find various choices available in various styles. If you want something more modern, we have those available. However, we also have more traditional styles.
