The farmhouse style, sometimes refereed to a country home is a popular choice of home, especially in southern states as well as rural Midwest areas where agriculture is prominent. Farmhouse plans were originally designed to serve their purpose in an agricultural setting. Originally designed from a pragmatic perspective, farmhouse house plans have adapted from simple homes stocked with essentials practical to every day living on the farm to today’s functional moderate to luxurious homes that appeal to all people that love the design.
Unlike the country house plan, farmhouse plans typically have gables that face different directions. The farmhouse looks nice on the crest of a large tract of land, or will fit in nicely in larger lot communities.
The farmhouse is great for larger families or a larger living area. Plans for the farmhouse are usually designed with the bedrooms upstairs and a spacious living area downstairs.

Closed foyer with coat closet, kitchen with lunch counter, dining room, vast family room with fireplace and access to covered terrace, master bedroom suite with walk-in closet and private bathroom, laundry facilities, half-bath. 2nd level: Second master bedroom suite with walk-in closet and private bathroom, two secondary bedrooms, full bathroom, family room with fireplace and access to a terrace.

Building a fence around your farmhouse is a great way to keep your families privacy while adding protection to your home. Fences can be used to keep pets and children from wandering away while defining boundaries with neighbors and your own home. Fences should be chosen according to the home's style though. So consider which type of fence best suits your home design.
For example, if your home is a Victorian, choose an old fashioned style like a white picket style. Even if you love wrought iron spikes, they may not look that great with your country farmhouse. You can find many different wood fence styles to fit your farmhouse plan by visiting Garlinghouse's fence project plans collection.
