Top-Selling House Plans of 2021… And What to expect for 2022

As we bring this year to a close, we’re taking a look back at our top-selling house plans of 2021. Generally, homebuyers were drawn to easy elegance and casual luxury  — homes with large outdoor living areas, open-concept living spaces, and private, tucked-away bedrooms. As we move into 2022, our customers are still interested in these home styles, but they’re customizing  them with features that meet their particular needs and lifestyles. Here’s a look back at our top-selling new home plans of 2021, and a peak at some of our most in-demand plans for 2022.


Contemporary Craftsman

You may be able to spot traditional Craftsman-style homes from their wide porches, thick support columns, low-pitched roofs, and exposed beams. Contemporary craftsman is a new take on this timeless style that weaves in sleeker lines and up-to-date floor plans that fit modern lifestyles. The kitchen tends to be centrally located in the open floor plan, and bedrooms are tucked away for privacy. These homes still incorporate lots of natural materials, like wood and stone, to lend a warm, cozy feeling.
