    Is this stucco or EIFS?

    There is probably a design that already exist that suits your style, budget, needs and desires. Let me recommend a couple of options and websites. Check out Rocio Romero LV series homes. They are prefab shipped to your location and assembled with several foundation options. As far as the prefab market goes it does not seem to be too far out of one's budget if you can locate an affordable contractor in your area to do the assembly. Second comes to mind is Houseplans.com .Look under modern plans. Two come to mind plan 918-5 and 449-14. Those are just a couple of my favorites. 449-14 could be expanded easily due to its shed roof design . It has modern features without over complicating things which greatly keeps the construction budget down. It also has a post and pier foundation option which would work great in the southern climate zones. Also for reference check out Studioshed.com . They manufacture prefab sheds that have a lot of modern design elements. I know most of us are not going to live in a shed per say but the exterior siding details, color choices, use of natural light and overall simplicity in a modern package is something worth looking at further. In my personal opinion if you keep the home as small as your needs allow, use a plan that's simple and has the basis of modernism, without over complicating and being flexible with your design elements and construction choices, then you can build the home you are dreaming of. Hope this helps

            9. Understated cool. Modernism still has the power of tremendous cool, and this very reduced and rigorous facade says sophistication to some, while suggesting “I want to be alone” to others. A facade has tremendous power to convey personality, but, as with any personality, it might be one to which only some people warm.

            Modern. True modern homes are not trendy — basic materials and an ordered structure are used to create a clean, simple environment. This style includes minimalist and Bauhaus spaces, as well as grid-like glass houses.Look for: A lack of trendy finishes; use of glass, steel and stone; straight lines; and minimal textureMore info: Modern or Contemporary: What’s the Difference?

            The handsome composition of this Minneapolis house initially appears elementary. However, the balanced asymmetrical exterior view achieves its complex harmony through highly contrasting materials, careful and thoughtful proportions, and a restrained landscape. Notice how the beauty of the stained wood siding acts as a warm and visually textured element against the stark and cold white stucco. Decoration or other emphasis is unnecessary.

            1. Sweeney Lake House, MinneapolisThe facade of this home is striking and clean. Two materials, two windows with parallel geometry and an opening that is obviously the entrance. What would you imagine the interior to be, based on this facade? The answer largely determines the home's authenticity.
