Affordable home plans come in many shapes and sizes, ranging from about 800 to 2400 square feet. Great for small families, vacation homes, starter homes or retirement, these economical houses are perfect for people in all walks of life. Ranch style homes are represented with simple floor plans along with lake homes with open basements, log cabins with stone fireplaces and sweet little bungalows. All invite intimate gatherings with your closest friends. Guest preparation is a snap in a smaller house- in fact all of daily life is more streamlined with modest upkeep and stress free monthly payments. Affordable home plans offer much more space than an apartment or townhouse along with the satisfaction of home and property investment.
Cape Cod House Plan 65640 faces the street with a handsome brick veneer while saving some building costs with siding on the right and left sides of the home. Three doghouse dormers bring light into the upper level. Two bedrooms downstairs and two large future bedrooms upstairs make this expandable plan a perfect first home, and the open design of the main room adds to the spacious feeling. 2 x 6 exterior walls make this an energy efficient design. Before finishing the rooms upstairs, the livable square footage is 1008.
Bungalow Style House Plan 68192 is 1375 square feet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. A front facing gable roof gives this home an open faced appearance, and the white columned and metal roofed porch is clean and inviting as you arrive home. Styled for a narrow lot at 40 feet wide and 55’8″ deep, the home opens with a hallway foyer. Drop off your coat in the closet on the right and pass the den / optional bedroom on the left. The kitchen, breakfast room and family room with fireplace are all at the rear of the house with an exit to the covered back porch. The master suite dominates the right side of the house, and the entrance is private, located by the stairs to the basement.
Coastal House Plan 65001 would be perfect on a sloping lot to a lake or beach. The steep-pitched roof with the aura of an A-frame triggers vacation mode, and double porches with slender pillars interact beautifully with the great outdoors. The interior layout with 1480 square feet opens to a spatially rich arrangement where each of the two levels is endowed with its own large bedroom and private full bath. This would be the dream home for college roommates.
