HISTORIC HOME PLANS
PLANTATION HOME PLANS
Graceful porticos, balconies to catch the breezes, these create the ambience of Antebellum homes. Fresh air, shade from the southern sun, this is the atmosphere of southern plantation homes. A culture of formality, grace and hospitality expressed itself through plantation home plans and exists to this day in their grand colonnades. Plantation homes fuse the axial formality of classical/Palladian models with colonnades and balconies to catch prevailing breezes, in harmony with the climate.
