Affordable Home Plans

Smartly designed, affordable home design with one-story and 1400 square feet.

The thought of building a brand-new home for the family can seem financially out of reach for many homeowners, which is why finding an economical house plan is such an integral part of the process.

Just as purchasing an existing home takes a lot of research, finding an inexpensive house plan that meets all of your requirements takes time and research. It’s all about thought and careful planning – and with our many filtering options, it’s easy to understand what’s available. And rest assured, there are cheaper options available.

Characteristics of Economical Home Plans

The homes in this category are ideal for building on a budget. Ranging in size generally from 1300 square feet to 2300 square feet, the homes tend to be smaller than some of our others and work well on a small lot. The plans typically have less-complex foundations and framing – so as to save money on construction materials and labor costs.

Even though these plans are generally smaller in terms of square feet, they offer plenty of smart design elements. Here are a few common features of these homes:

  • Basement foundations
  • Two to four bedrooms
  • Porches
  • Eat-in kitchens
  • Oftentimes single story

Our selection features an impressive array of architectural styles that range from Colonial and Craftsman designs to traditional and modern marvels. There are many options available, so you’ll be sure to find the style that you like in the price range that fits your budget. 

Choosing a cheap house plan (that’s still high quality) doesn’t mean you have to skimp on luxuries or amenities, as we offer a huge selection of functional and fashionable homes at this lower price range.

Building on a small lot size? Narrow your search according to square footage, width, or depth, or even peruse our selection of tiny homes to truly embrace your inner minimalist.

Whether it’s your first home, a vacation home, or a multi-family home you’re searching for, our affordable house plans have estimated cost-to-build reports available so you can better understand the entire price of the house. Follow your dreams and your budget, and create the ultimate living space for you and your family.
