Basic Features of Small House Plans

As you search for smaller home plans for your home building needs, you will start to notice some features that are found throughout the design. The first of these is a large living space. Small homes tend to have large, open living areas that make them feel larger than they are. They may save square footage with slightly smaller bedrooms and fewer designs with bonus rooms or home offices, opting instead to provide a large space for entertaining needs. Small house designs also typically feature a large porch or patio incorporated into the design. This extends the living area outdoors, without adding square footage to the home. Finally, these designs typically have the same modern amenities homeowners want in a newly built home, like walk-in master closets and two or more bathrooms, but on a smaller scale.

With these home plans from Donald A. Gardner Architects, you can enjoy all the benefits of a modern, newly built home, with a smaller footprint. Smaller house plans are ideal for people in all walks of life. Retirees who are ready to downsize after pouring their lives into their children, but still want a comfortable place to call home, can benefit from these plans. Young families who want a starter home can also enjoy their benefits. Even those who are raising kids and managing careers will find that the modern features of these designs meet their needs well, just with a smaller footprint.

Benefits of Small Home Plans

Smaller home plans from Donald A. Gardner Architects have many benefits. The first benefit, and the primary one that sends many homeowners in search of these plans, is the affordability they provide. Smaller homes are cheaper to build, even with the same quality materials you want in your newly built home. If your budget's tight, you can have a beautiful home built from the ground up by choosing a smaller design.Smaller homes are also simpler to maintain once built. With less space, you can't build up clutter as easily. Less clutter and cleaning means more time to enjoy your home to the fullest. These home plans also have smaller footprints, so they work well on lots in communities where land value is at a premium. These house plans, especially the cottage and cabin designs, are great for vacation homes or second homes. Build your cabin in the mountains or cottage by the sea to enjoy whenever you have some time off work, and you will have your own private retreat.
