New plans offer a fresh take on the traditional European farmhouse style

"Brune" - new Maison Provincial Perch plan

Perch Plans by Tim Brown Architecture is thrilled to announce that they have released their second flight of architectural plans, expanding the variety and style of designer home plans available for clients looking to build a semi-custom home. Each flight, or collection, features four to six limited edition tailored home plans crafted in a central architectural style – with the latest collection, “Maison Provincial,” inspired by the homes of the European countryside. Launched in 2016 by Austin architect Tim Brown, Perch Plans offers a boutique home plan shopping experience that makes high-end residential architecture readily accessible for someone looking to build a semi-custom home.

“Our goal with this flight was to focus on functional, well-intentioned design that would be responsive to our client’s requests from the earlier Modern Farmhouse flight,” said Tim Brown, founding partner of Perch Plans. Although they were influenced by a classic aesthetic, Brown and his team revived the Traditional European Farmhouse by adding a thoughtful mix of modern features like open concept kitchens, vaulted ceilings, and large windows for plenty of natural light. “Most of our clients are looking for sophistication without the formality,” said Brown. “We take the overall scale and proportions of each traditional style and pull the visually heavy items away. This brings a fresh perspective while maintaining the familiar forms.”

Ranging in size from 1,968 to 3,423 square feet and priced between $2,600 and $4,200, the Maison Provincial designs were created to appeal to a wide array of homeowners with varying family needs and land restrictions. The four new plans in the Maison Provincial flight, which is French for “provincial house”, evoke a spirit of humble French cottages and stately English manors but are updated with modern components and amenities. Home plans in the Maison Provincial flight feature three and four bedrooms, and are carefully crafted with aesthetic, flow and efficiency of space and energy in mind.

Every Perch Plan is exclusive by zip code and is fully customizable, so buyers have access to homes that are truly tailored to their lifestyle and unique to their area. Each curated design is made from hours of thoughtful planning and creative effort; and by starting with a good framework, tweaks can be made to the preformed concept to make it unique to the individual client. As a project of Tim Brown Architecture, Perch Plans has a team of licensed and experienced architects that will work with buyers directly to make modifications based on their particular needs.

“We wanted to create a better process,” said Brown. “Perch Plans gives everyone the chance to work directly with the creating architect, and design guidance that follows each homeowner’s specific situations.” It’s out of this passion that Perch Plans was created to be an elevated alternative. With a streamlined system for customers to purchase the plans directly from the Perch Plans website at an affordable price, Brown is putting quality, comprehensive design within reach of more people, while still maintaining the personal and approachable feel of a custom project.
