Tiny homes get a lot of attention on television shows, and no wonder – they’re affordable to build and they get really creative with smart uses for limited space. But a 200- or 300-square-foot home may be a little bit too small for you. That’s where these plans with 1,000 square feet come in!
Stick to your budget while still getting the right amount of space. These clever small plans range from 1,000 to 1,100 square feet and include a variety of layouts and floor plans. Want an affordable, cool contemporary home with three bedrooms to fit on a narrow lot? You’ll find that here. How about a simple country cottage with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a spacious front porch? Find your dream home in this collection.
Craftsman bungalows traditionally offer small square footage, so they fit nicely in this category. Some even offer half stories or bonus spaces upstairs, perfect for storage or later expansion. If you’re looking for a simple getaway home to build in Canada’s Cottage Country, you’ll find many of those here. Naturally, porches and other outdoor living spaces play a big role. Open layouts feel especially modern and relaxed.
Ranch home designs work well just about anywhere, from a spacious country lot to a suburb. With exteriors that show off traditional red brick, lap siding, or board-and-batten, these house plans fit into many different neighborhoods. For Southern flavor, pick a farmhouse design with a wraparound porch. A rugged vacation home (like an A-frame or cabin) looks perfect at a lakefront location or in the mountains. You’ll even find split-level designs for a variety of living spaces on different levels.
You’ll notice that some of these designs are garage plans with apartments above. That extra room upstairs makes an excellent in-law unit, she shed, man cave, or other relaxing space. Multigenerational families will appreciate the versatility of having this accessory dwelling unit (or ADU) as a secondary housing unit on their property.
