A Scandinavian inspired modern farmhouse
Inspired by our popular Barnhouse plans, this DEN is designed to empower a seamless construction process for customers of our BuiltBy DEN platform. This home features vaulted ceilings, an open and airy communal space, and a deck that runs the length of the backside of the house. The simplicity of a single floor home is great for a variety of family styles, and the addition of an office gives homeowners and visitors alike the space for focus time — whether that’s at a computer or on yoga mat. DEN signature windows and door designs let the outdoors in.
All four BuiltBy DEN models are exclusive to the BuiltBy platform and are not available for sale through the digital plans store. BuiltBy DEN is our new full service homebuilding platform that you can check out here.

How is BuiltBy DEN different from working with my local builder?
We manage the entire project for you, so you don’t have to worry about finding a builder, looking up other vendors, learning all the steps in the process, following up on various tasks, or managing communication, payment, and timelines. The DEN team handles all of that, making homebuilding far more convenient, transparent, and stress-free — for everyone involved.
How does the project management of BuiltBy DEN work?
We vet the best builders in the area, optimizing for build quality, cost, and professionalism. We then get full transparency on all invoicing and costs, to make sure you aren’t overcharged or faced with confusing change orders. Finally, we’re available if the project faces confusing decisions around timelines, invoicing dates, or conflicts. We are here to protect your project from start to finish.
What if I already purchased a set of digital plans from DEN?
We thank you for your early support of our digital plans! BuiltBy DEN has a separate set of exclusive plans that we strongly encourage our customers to build with because they are optimized for premium design and efficiency, but we can discuss your final plan preferences 1:1. Either way, we’ll discount the total purchase price of the digital plans from your BuiltBy DEN project cost.
What’s included in my project price?
Full end-to-end project management, from finding land to keys in hand of a turnkey, newly built home.
Can I substitute or mix and match my own materials and finishes?
We’ve optimized these designs for the perfect mix of quality design and attainable pricing. We encourage you to trust our decisions here to maintain the timeline, cost, and simplicity of these home builds. If you decide you want to explore customizations, we only ask that you understand this will add time, money, and complexity.
What if I don’t have land?
We can help you find and finance land as we have pre-vetted parcels and broker and financing partners.
Are you building it or do you hire builders?
We match you with a vetted, DEN-approved builder-partner, and we follow you and your project every step of the way. We’ve got transparency with our partners on all invoices and pricing, so we can make sure you get your project done on time and on budget.
Can I use BuiltBy DEN with other DEN models?
We designed our four exclusive BuiltBy DEN models to balance great design, efficiency, and price sensitivity. They are also ready to build anywhere based on the materials specified. We encourage potential customers to take that into account when deciding which model to build. If after that consideration, you’d like to build one of the catalog models, we can discuss that 1:1.
Can I add a pool, garage, and outbuildings?
Yes, we can add outbuildings and pools. These options are included in our form.
Do you include landscaping?
For an additional cost, we can roll it into the construction contract.
