When you think mid century modern house plans, think one level living paired with chic indoor/outdoor flow.
While a mid century modern house plan could potentially be built in any area of the United States, Palm Springs, California would be the quintessential location. Why? For one, Palm Springs is hot, and nothing complements a hot climate like the cool indoor/outdoor living spaces afforded by most mid century modern home plans. Secondly, Palm Springs, like Florida, tends to be a place people retire to. One level living allows retirees, or, anyone, for that matter, to enjoy the benefits of one level living, such as the ability to gracefully age in place. Note: while mid century modern house plans would, generally speaking, fit very well in a city like Palm Springs, CA, some locations may require specific engineering and/or local code adoptions. Be sure to check with your contractor or local building authority to see what is required for your area.
