Popular House Plan Terminology

Whether you are planning on designing for a building a luxury house, a small cottage, or even a chicken coop, there are some important architectural terms with which you should be familiar before beginning the process. Here are some important design terms to know when looking at floor plans.

  • Veranda - A veranda is an open porch that runs along the front or side of a house. It is held up with small columns in modern styles homes, and often with larger columns in classic Southern homes.
  • Bungalow - A bungalow home can be both large and luxurious or small and inexpensive. The unifying characteristic of bungalow homes is their size and single floor layout. They also often have verandas.
  • Parapet - A parapet is any wall like or statuesque structure that extends upward beyond the roof of a building. This is often seen in churches and medieval inspired architecture.
  • Facade - Facade refers to the main face or open side of a building. It's typically more ornate than other walls of the house, since its meant to showcase the craftsmanship of the builders.
  • Clapboard - Clapboard is a generic term for the wooden siding that is used for some buildings. For instance, traditional chicken coops, dog houses, or even cottages use clapboard. More upscale versions are used on modern green homes in place of vinyl siding.
  • Wing - In some blueprints, there may be extending sections of the home. Any section of the house or building that extends beyond the main entryway and living space is referred to as a wing of the home.

    House plans model the basic layout of a house, building or home for the home owner and construction team to follow. Architects draw out the plans before doing any construction, allowing home owners or builders to see the design of the house, and therefore make any changes. These working drawings are especially used for home renovations and remodels so that the architects can customize new additions, a new game room, or a redesign of the interior. Architectural blueprints can be broken into four sections, all of which offer different views of the residential home. First, there are floor plans, offering an overhead view of the entire remodel. Rooms, piping, and electrical wiring should all be seen in this blueprint. Second, there are the site plans; these offer an overall view of the home, with reference points to land boundaries, and where it will sit on the lot. These are especially important for houses that are being built from the ground up, and not just undergoing a renovation. Third, we have sections, which are basically smaller views of the home, explaining interior details like ceiling height, flooring details and more. Finally, there are elevations. They are scaled drawings of the front, back and sides of the building, though they can be taken of any portion of the house. Depending on the type of house or building that you need constructed, different firms may be more appropriate. For instance, an architectural design of a luxury model home will be far more complex than the design of a modular home.
