      After Fowler published his book "The Octagon House, A Home for All," plans for Octagon style houses were widely circulated. However, Fowler did not actually invent the idea of octagonal design. Thomas Jefferson used the octagonal shape for his summer home, and many Adam and Federal-style homes included octagonal rooms. Modern house plans proudly present modern architecture, as has already been described. Contemporary house plans, on the other hand, typically present a mixture of architecture that's popular today. For instance, a contemporary house plan might feature a woodsy Craftsman exterior, a modern open layout, and rich outdoor living space.
