Choosing Your Home Plan

If you’ve ever purchased a home before, you know that buying a used home can be a gamble. You don’t really know how well the previous owners kept it or if the electrical system will need upgrading in a few years. When you build a house in one of Burkentine’s convenient home communities in Central PA, you can rest assured that your dream home doesn’t turn into a nightmare because all the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC are up to today’s home building code.

Our collection of floor plans is proof that your dream home can excel in a modern design yet remain sensible for everyday life. From entertaining to daily family living, enjoy our practical home floor plans. A spacious owner’s suite is exactly what you deserve after a long day at work. Walk-in closets, a two-car garage, and a convenient laundry room are all features that will make your house more suitable for your lifestyle.

We have five primary types of new home construction available to find the one that best fits your living situation. We designed these collections with function, flexibility, and family in mind. After all, that’s what life is all about.



Our 1.5-story homes with a first-floor primary suite provide up to 2,500 square feet—perfect for large families. This style home features a great room, a front porch, and an open floor plan.



If you’re looking for a two-story single-family home, we have five practical home floor plans from which to choose. These home designs have plenty of living space and bonus-room options.



Introducing our new farmhouse series! These home plans feature charming and rustic elements and classic, modern farmhouse styles. We’re sure you’ll love it living in this style of home!



Our rancher floor plans provide comfortable living with your entire living area on one floor! These house plans can feature large kitchens with a walk-in pantry and a convenient laundry room.



If you’re looking for new home construction but don’t want the upkeep of an entire home, a townhome may be the solution for you! These homes provide three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.

“Recently moved into our Burkentine home in Abbottstown. My husband and I are very pleased with the new house and service from Burkentine Builders. Bryan and Rachael sold our former house and did an excellent job. They always respond to texts or emails and were very helpful in our transition. Burkentine Builders and their staff, Mike, Stacy, and Scott, went the extra mile to be sure we were kept informed of progress and were also available to answer our questions. We are very happy with our new home. We like how Burkentine Builders creates homes and designs that add extras and make each one unique. It’s these extra touches that make a house a home. Thanks to the staff at Burkentine Builders!” –Robin. S.
