What Is a French Country Style Home?

The French Country style comes from the countryside in France and often mixes rustic and refined elements. They come in a variety of sizes and styles ranging from humble cottages to extravagant chateau-style homes. Our French Country floor plans reflect time-honored elements while incorporating modern design features designed for the way we live today.
These homes may showcase thin windows, often with slat-board shutters, steep roofs, multiple gables, and arches for windows and entryways. You will also see some stucco and stone exteriors with window boxes, wrought iron railings, and brick highlights around windows and doors.

Design Basics will work alongside you to help you achieve the French Country home of your dreams. All of our plans can be customized to include all of your must-have features!
