Free 2-Story House Plans for 16×32 Backyard Farmhouse
This is the largest of the free open source Backyard Farmhouse plans Jay Osborne, www.freefarmhouse.com, designed. It is still small, 857 square feet. It is 16 feet deep, like the other variations. Compare the plans to see how much difference the additional width can make.
The roof line is low. Some residential zoning areas have limits on building height, so the roof of the Backyard Farmhouse stays under 20-feet high.
The plans can be altered to have a higher ceiling if your zoning allows.
The stairs are in the center of the house, like a traditional farmhouse.There is enough room for a laundry room under the stairs.
The living room has a door. This way the room can be closed off to use as a guest room.
A traditional farmhouse would have been more likely to have a doorway to the kitchen, too. The more open floor plan is more current.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, each with a small closet. The front dormer gives enough space for a standard bathroom.
The house is designed to be inexpensive to build, yet gives enough space for a family.
