Southern Living

Afternoon, lovelies!

I’ve been home sick today with a cold, yuck! Thankfully, feeling a bit better and thought I would share some of my favorite Southern Living homes. Being raised in Georgia, you know there was always at least a couple of copies of Southern Living on the coffee table at all times. Not only do they have delicious recipes and travel guides, their house plans are pretty cool too.

This first one is from the Farmhouse for Four Instagram page.

Just gahhhh. She is actually from Georgia, which is pretty darn cool! This home is a modified version of the Four Gables house plan.

Gotta say, I think she knocked it out of the park with her modifications! Y’all go check out her page. To say you will be inspired is an understatement. The inside is just as drool-worthy as the outside:

Next up is another Southern Living house plan, the Low Country Cottage. This photo is from the Southern Living Website detailing the house plans.

There was a brief period of time that the hubs and I were considering building a house. This puppy was my first choice of plans. It’s a small house with an amazing layout. So much potential! Check it out:

I love how open the living room is the to kitchen. And the obvious, a separate master suite with a connecting screen porch?! (***insert drooling Kali face***). Total square footage (including the upstairs) is about 2100 with 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Small-ish, but a great use of space in my opinion.

This one is the White Plains plan which according to SL is a “twist on carpenter gothic”. It’s 2942 square feet, so a good bit larger than the Low Country Cottage. I love the steep pitch on the roof and the front porch. Kind of reminds me of a chapel.

And last but not least, ‘Mama Crovatt’s House’, a 2543 square foot stunner.



Wrap-around porches are just a must. And wouldn’t this look a bazillion times better with a tin roof?

If there are any good ones I have missed, leave them in the comments!
