What are the top-selling house plans?
How do you know which house plans consumers are really buying?
Simple. My source is Builder House Plans — the largest supplier of house plans in the United States.
They recently announced their Top 10 Best Selling Consumer House Plans.
These top selling / best house plans that builders are buying are based upon current consumer needs and plans that home buyers are searching for most.
A larger portion of home buyers are older (rather than younger couples) and they’re requesting first floor bedroom suites with sitting rooms.
Recurring features in many of these houseplans include:
- morning kitchens
- large master bathrooms
- multiple porches
- large windows
- garden tubs

My #1 choice from these top house plans is the #1 plan.
It’s not because it’s already #1 but rather that I like that style of home. It fits my personality and style more than any of the others. That’s my two cents worth.
I started as a home-stalker… visiting brand new homes under construction in the neighborhoods near my house. That inspired me to write about home building and home renovation projects — chronicling homes during different phases of construction from a consumer's point-of-view. Basically, the tips you'll find in my articles are a collection of checklists for what I think should (and should not) go into building or remodeling a quality home.
