6 farmhouse floor plans with space for a hobby room

When looking at a new home plan, it’s important to take hobbies into account. Depending on how many hobbies you have, it could mean the difference between yet another bedroom and a large bonus room or hobby area that gives you enough space to devote your time to any obscure martial art you pick up, an impressionist art form, a pinball machine collection or whatever hobby suits you.
The floor plans below include rooms that are specifically designated as rec. rooms or game rooms, as well as homes that could be made to house a hobby space. Many of these floor plans have spacious options like a second living/family room on the lower level that could be converted or a bonus room above the garage, for instance.

1. New England Style Farmhouse by Classic Colonial Homes
This home is notable for its optional living space above the garage. That large space could easily be converted into a game room or other general hobby space. It sits separate from the rest of the home, so it’s great for loud hobbies like music. This home has four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
2. Modern Farmhouse by MA Architecture
Here’s an interesting home. It keeps the steep roof of the traditional farmhouse, and even incorporates some built-in porch space, in a minimalistic sense. The red exterior gives it something of a barn look. But in this home, the foundation plan boasts a second family/living room, which would make a great game room or man cave. This home has two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms.
3. Two-Story Porch Farmhouse by houseplans.com
This home also has a rec. room space placed right above the garage. Again, it’s great for louder hobbies, since it’s placed away from the main living area. This home has four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.
4. Classic Gable Farmhouse by houseplans.com
With its extremely steep roof and gables, this home has a very classic country look. The upper floor plan boasts a game room or upper den space, right next to an office. It’s perfect for people who like to keep their work and hobby lives easily accessible to each other. This home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
5. Classic White and Blue Farmhouse by Dream Home Source
In this home, the basement level has plenty of extra space. There’s an extra family/living room space that would be perfect for a game or hobby room. There’s even a workroom that could be used for more hands-on builder hobbies. This home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and two half baths.
6. Classic Cream Colored Farmhouse by Dream Home Source
This home has a large bonus room on the second level. In addition, there’s a smaller space that is designated as a rec. room on the same level. This home has four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.

Sometimes a farmhouse can act as a second home, a smaller dwelling for someone who wants less space to keep up on or a vacation retreat.
