Small House Plans and Small House Floor Plans

Small house plans can still fit big dreams. Plans in this collection are ideal for those looking to build a smart, flexible, cost-efficient, and energy-saving home that fits your family's needs (and lot, if you already have one) without expensive excess square footage. Small homes are more affordable and easier to build, heat, cool, clean, and maintain.

Of course, a smaller home should feel cozy, not cramped. Open floor plans are ideal for smaller homes. Another space-saving strategy is to forgo formal spaces such as the separate dining room in favor of an everyday eating nook that opens easily to the kitchen. Look for multi-use spaces, such as a kitchen island that can be used as a food prep space, breakfast bar, and serving buffet for larger meals. A flexible bonus space upstairs allows for future expansion. In any home (but especially a smaller design), smart placement of porches and decks is a great way to add living space.

Lastly, since a small home is usually more affordable because of lesser costs for land, materials, and labor, you may be in a better position to invest in high-quality windows, flooring, and appliances. Whether you're building a primary residence or vacation home, you'll be amazed at how a small home can fit just right.
