Make the Most of Daylight Savings TIme

Daylight savings time is almost upon us, and that means a few things for the staff here at AMDA. None of us are particularly thrilled with the idea of losing an hour of sleep, but on the bright side, this is the perfect time to think about springtime and sunshine!

So many of our house plans were built around the idea of maximizing the amount of natural light indoors. If you’re curious, here are some of our favorite plans that will make the most out of the extra sunshine that comes with the spring time change.

The Harrisburg

If you’re a fan of sunshine, then you’re going to love the Harrisburg. Everywhere you look, you’ll find immense floor-to-ceiling windows. In the vaulted living room, for instance, the rear wall is almost entirely made of glass with two beautiful stone pillars that perfectly frame the view into your backyard. The same holds true throughout the rest of this home. Check out the house plans, and you’ll find walls of windows in nearly every room of this luxurious home.

The Hampton

Here is a home with such beautifully designed windows that you’ll almost feel like you’re living outdoors. Take a look at the plans to see what we mean. The best view is from the central great room, where both the front and rear walls let the sunshine stream in all day long. But that isn’t the only place you’ll get a view — both the master bedroom and the office offer you floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking your backyard!

The Madewood

Colonial homes are known for their perfectly symmetrical rows of single or double-hung windows, and The Madewood is a perfect example of this. These aren’t the largest windows that you’ll find in our collection of house plans, but there is no denying that this home’s beautiful French windows give it an unparalleled sense of style.

The Cormac

In contrast to the Madewood, the asymmetrical shape of the windows in this gorgeous contemporary home welcome in the light and perfectly frame the home’s surroundings. In the den, you’ll find a large window seat perfect for reading your favorite novel. Floor-to-ceiling windows grace the master bedroom and great room, and on the lower floor, there are similar windows in the game room and second bedroom.
