U-Shaped & V-Shaped House Plans
House plans come in many different shapes and forms, including the ones that resemble letters of the alphabet like the U-shaped, although the L, H and V-shaped houses can also be found across the country.
People who want to make a grand impression, or simply have a luxurious house, can consider the U-shaped house plans on this site, as it permits for the house to be wrapped around a driveway going all the way up to the main entrance in the middle.
Do you have kids and want to keep them in the opposite side of the house because they make a lot of noise? Well, then this type of style could be for you, where you could have them each have a bedroom in one of the arms of the house.
Others may choose this style as it has the great ability of wrapping around a pool without the need for a specific pool house. It is really a remarkable style that will make sure you get the distinctive house you always wanted.
These homes come in both single-level options, or with pools in the middle, but more often than not they will have a ranch feel to them. You could also get it where you have a courtyard in the middle.
For these styles, that are often grandiose with their finishes, it is not uncommon to find expansive windows with massive sliding doors that let in heaps of natural light. This remarkable shape for a home gives you a bunch of possibilities simply not available for other homes, like those intended for narrow lots.
While our plans do provide the framework for the home, there are so many options when it comes to creating just the option that fits your taste. We are not saying that you should necessarily choose any of the finishes we recommend. No, we want you to get exactly the house that matches your biggest wishes and desires, with all the finishes that allow you to have the life style you deserve.
What we are seeing, however, is that there are some trends that seem to carry through with a lot of the people that choose the U-shaped homes, like the desire to have great open floor plans that will make your entire family feel more connected.
We’re also seeing a preference for big, modern finishes that create the perfect setting for making an entertainer’s heaven. If you already have the framework that provides a great option to have a majestic pool installed, why not go that one step further and also go for the kitchen that will allow you to show off your cooking skills, assuming of course, that you like cooking. Choosing a home that is well-equipped to entertain the lifestyle you want is the first step in getting that dream home that you’re sure will be your little piece of heaven for years to come.
While the usual thing is to have the U point either towards the front or the back of the house, there is also the option to have it point to the side, and rather have the courtyard there instead of the usual front. A lot of homes suffer from the usual traits of feeling very secluded when you’re doing a function like cooking. These house plans will traditionally seek to avoid that by having the kitchen and entertainment area in the middle of everything, usually also with a large dining area that ensures that no one has to walk a long distance with those edible art pieces you put passion into creating.
Whether you want to use one of the wings as a more isolated part of the house for your very own office, or whether you’re using it as your private gym, the options are many.
This shape is really meant for people that embrace that modern lifestyle, and often so also the various design elements that we keep seeing people put into these homes that include a lot of bright colors, high end finishes and often so “a lot” of minimalist ideas. There’s no need to clutter everything and block the natural sunlight that your home is giving you.
Besides seeing an inherent trend towards a clutter-free home, we’re also seeing that many homeowners opt to choose responsibly sourced materials for their various finishes, which can include everything from bamboo to reclaimed wood. While it is by no means a prerequisite for such a type of living, these homes do tend to appeal to a certain environmentally-conscious group of people, and while you may want those high end finishes (which we can’t blame you for – we absolutely love them too!), there are instances such as flooring and tile, where you can still get the luxurious, beautiful and modern lifestyle with a consideration for sustainability.
Are you excited to try something new for your future home? Try this horseshoe-shaped house style for your next home, with the 4 bedroom U-shaped house plans being the most popular of them.
If you’re in the market for something unique, something you may want to consider more closely is the V-shaped house plans. They provide great opportunities for making an exceptional greeting area, either with a courtyard or a landscaped area in the middle, the same way both H-shaped and U-shaped houses do.
While this style of house does warrant its own focus, they are definitely nowhere near as popular as some of the other contenders when families are building houses, even if they offer both the options for open concept or either single-story or multistory adventures.
If you do not see the V-shaped house plans you were hoping for, we encourage you to reach out to our customer support to see if there is anything we can do to hopefully make sure you are able to get the home you want. While the V-shape is a very distinct one, a much more common variation is the angled-garage house plans, which we also offer on this site.
Options With a Pool in The Middle
Whether you choose one style or the other, homeowners are really loving the way that the house plans coming in either a V-shape or a U-shape will allow you to have a pool in the middle, being wrapped by the rest of the house. This is in fact one of the predominant reasons why people are so fond of these two styles to start off with.
What’s better than being able to dip in a pool after a long day at work, and perhaps making some food outside too, while you’re at it. If you have kids, you know that they themselves will not just love the pool on a warm summer day, but your house may just end up being the place where they and all their friends hang out after school.
Besides being a great place to gather with the many things offered by it, it is also an excellent type of exercise, and may be a more sustainable way of getting the exercise in than having to go to a gym – and it all starts out with you choosing the right house plans.
Options With a Central Courtyard in the Middle
Besides a pool, U-shaped and V-shaped homes also offer a great possibility for putting a majestic courtyard in the middle of everything, which is great if you want to leave a major impression on the people that are coming to meet you. If you find an option on the site that you like, you can also always opt to have it turned 90 degrees so that it creates a C-shape instead of a U-shape, why you can have either a pool or courtyard on the side of the home depending on the way that you are turning the house plans.
Ranch-style, single-level 2 bedroom
Although there are a lot of users that like these homes in a very modern-style, there are other that like that traditional, single-level ranch-style to them, why we are actively making sure to onboard designers and architects that are willing to accommodate to those wishes, too, and why you’ll be able to find some, although currently not that many house plans in that style.
A lot of the options in these categories cater to the fact that people building these types of homes have slightly more that they want, which will mean there are usually a couple of extra bedrooms for guests. If you want something smaller, you can also set the settings on the site so that we’re only showing you U-shaped ones with 2 bedrooms, though.
Get a unique floor plan
While we realize that there are a lot of people that may want a truly unique floor plan for their home, that is also something we can help you make happen. Some of our users choose to go off our existing offerings on the site and then choose to have our architects modify them so that they exactly fit the unique desires you have. Get in touch with us today, if you really want to make your floor plan unique.
