SMALL HOUSE PLANS

 

Optimize for efficiency, comfort, and affordability with The Plan Collection’s small house plans. We can guide you through our selection of over 2,000 designs in the “small house plan” category, with over 300 plans for homes of 1,000 square feet or less!



 



Whether you are working with a small lot, want to save on building materials and utility bills, are at a downsizing stage in life, or are simply interested in more environmentally responsible and smart home design, The Plan Collection can help you get the most out of minimal square footage.



 



Good Things Come in Small House Plans



American homes are known worldwide for being unnecessarily large. Our square-foot-per-person average is among the highest on the globe. Mass-produced with cheap materials, vast suburbs of “McMansions” epitomize the excesses of American homebuilding.



 



Fortunately, this trend toward excessively large homes is on the decline. Americans everywhere are looking to unsaddle themselves from the large mortgages and hefty utility bills that come with large home ownership. The small-home movement emphasizes small home plans designed on the principles of efficiency and simplicity, where functionality and purpose win the day over clutter and cost.



 



 



Right for New Life Stages



Small house plans are well suited for all of life’s changing circumstances. Young, single first-time buyers can trade throwaway apartment rent for a property investment with small-home ownership. Newlywed couples, recent empty nesters, and retirees also benefit from the efficiency and savings of small home plans. Even families who want to raise kids with less “stuff” are choosing smaller homes.



 



As with all The Plan Collection’s home designs, small house plans are customizable and modifiable in case you want to add the “mother-in-law suite” or an extra bedroom when the time comes. We will help you start small, with a focus on smart design.



 



 



Right for the Environment



Smaller homes are also greener homes. Less square footage means lower heating bills in the winter and lower electricity bills from air conditioning in the summer. Smaller lawns require less water. It is easier to use less with a small home plan.



 



To go even further for the earth and its future generations, our talented architects have developed a number of environmentally responsible features available to small house plans. The Plan Collection’s variety of passive-solar and geodesic styles means a reduced ecological footprint without sacrificing practicality and comfort.  We are also experienced in straw-bale construction methods and rooftop gardens. Our small home plans reflect a careful use of space with a softer impact on the planet.



 



 



Right for You



Too attached to large heirloom furniture or bulky appliances to downsize? Concerned that a small house plan may not deliver in terms of garage space, storage space, or personal privacy? Not willing to compromise on amenities like a walk-in closet or a kitchen island?



 



Let us surprise and delight you with innovative design features that rethink the small homes of the past, allowing for unprecedented luxury and utility in compact living areas. Among our 2,300+ small house plans, you are likely to find something that is right for you.

Welcome Back, “Small House!” The Small House Plan Can Pack a Big Punch

By: Rexy Legaspi
Small House Plans Offer Less Clutter and Expense – And with Good Design, Small Homes Provide Comfort and Style.   During a recent trip to New York City, one of my friends invited a few of us to her “mini-home” – a large studio with a wonderful layout and great views; and furnished to enhance the available space. Like a growing number of people who have downsized in recent years, moving from bigger apartments to smaller ones or from large “McMansions” to small houses, she adjusted and organized accordingly. But what made her move ultimately a true success: the net impact of her adjustments was a beautiful, well designed, less expensive, and happier home.   Big and extravagant homes might be beautiful to admire from afar, but how many homeowners really want the big mortgage payments plus spend their nights and weekends maintaining them – or incur huge expenses to have others do so for them? Below I explore some of the advantages and comforts offered by a smaller home floor plan as well as my “Top 5 Tips” to enh   Read more
