Sister House Plans

A Sister Plan is a new house plan that has been created as a result of personalizing one of our already existing plans.

Sister plans are custom house plans that share similar characteristics to the original home that they were based upon.


Sister house plans have differences from the original home plan that could include:

  • updated exterior finishes (i.e. stucco, stone, siding)
  • exterior roof styles ( i.e. gable roof, hip roof, curved roof)
  • window and door styles
  • decks, patios, porches, lanais, balconies
  • room sizes and floor plan layouts


The overall layout of a sister house plan does not change from the original house plan. Each sister house plan that is designed by Nauta Home Designs can be personalized to suit your exact lifestyle needs and preferences.


This is an example of a house plan that has two sister house plans associated with it. This house plan was customized twice which means it has two sister plans.  This house plan was customized twice and therefore has two sister plans.
