Features of Canadian Home Designs

Canada’s breathtaking wintry areas in the north contain a huge array of cabins and cottages, perfect for use as a vacation home or a year-round family home in the right location. These types of house plans in Canada typically include rustic exteriors that resemble log cabins by utilizing natural wood materials, as well as more current stylings that take the concept of a cozy cottage and incorporate clean lines and modern aesthetics.

Those looking for a more traditional design can also find plans with a contemporary design that’s perfect for any neighborhood. Whether it’s a two-story modern farmhouse with multiple bedrooms or a quaint two-bedroom ranch home with ample living space, homeowners will find the perfect option. Many of the plans also include a large number of windows to take in lakefront, mountain range, or other natural views.

Other common features in our Canadian home plans include additional bonus rooms like mudrooms for extra storage for your winter gear, multi-car garages to protect your vehicles from the harsh winter weather, main floor master suites, large outdoor areas like wraparound porches to take in the views, and home offices to allow you to work from home when it's too dangerous to commute.

No matter the type of style, homeowners can trust that these plans to include sturdy and reliable construction – many using 2x6 framing – meant to withstand colder weather. These larger frames also allow for extra room for insulation keeping your home warm and energy efficient. Another common feature of these houses is that they often take uncommon terrain into account, such as sloping hills and rocky ground, especially for homes suited to more rural areas.
