Affordable Small Farmhouse Plan
Remember the old saying: “Less is more?” Small Farmhouse Plan 81310 is a great illustration of this phrase. Firstly, this small home plan packs a punch when it comes to curb appeal. Vertical white siding is reminiscent of old farmhouses that were whitewashed seasonally. Use a rich brown stain on the board and batten shutters, front door, and garage door. These accents will really pull everything together and make the house look charming. Secondly, there is no wasted space. Don’t like to clean rooms you’re not using? Don’t build a big home, and you get to keep all that extra time you would waste cleaning and maintaining a big house.
Thirdly, this house is affordable. At only 1,196 square feet of living space, your overall costs are automatically reduced. For example, a small home means less materials to purchase to get the job done. Let’s look at the specific materials as well. Choose basic shingles, wood siding, and other readily-available materials for construction. These options are mass-produced, non-custom, and therefore easy to purchase quickly at your local building supply company. Even better, it’s easy to grab replacements in the distant future when it’s time to do maintenance and/or upgrades. Remember, you own the house. Don’t let the house own you.
3 Bedroom House Tour
This small house plan has a formal foyer for those who like traditional elements. Drop off your coats in the closet and keep clutter from entering the rest of the house. The coat closet is also convenient to the garage entryway. Open living space is found among the great room, dining room, and kitchen. Traffic will flow gracefully around the large kitchen island, and the kids will sit here and do their homework after school. Enjoy a meal in the sunny dining room, or move the party outside to the back covered porch. In the evening, enjoy a movie and popcorn while you snuggle in front of the fireplace.
Three bedrooms are located down the hallway. If you have young children, the placement of the bedrooms is advantageous because they are all close together. The primary bedroom is 13’8 wide by 12′ deep, and Mom and Dad have a walk-in closet and ensuite with double vanity and large shower. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are exactly the same size, so the kids won’t have an opportunity to argue over who gets the bigger room. All parents know the struggle. Add a stacked washer and dryer in the hall closet, and you have everything you need.
