Builder Preferred House Plans

If you're a professional house builder or you're working with one, check out this collection of easy-to-build house plans. Builder preferred house plans feature simple footprints, affordable square footage, and dimensions that make the homes easier to fit in narrow or infill lots.

What does it mean to be builder-friendly or easy to build? These are house plan layouts that will appeal to many different home buyers in many different regions, from the southern states to Texas, from the Northeast to California. You'll find many homes within the sweet spot of 2,000-2,500 square feet, which is a popular range. Most of these homes feature three or four bedrooms. Whether you focus on building starter homes for entry-level buyers or luxurious move-up plans, the right plan is here.

Exterior styles range from traditional to modern and everything in between. Craftsman influences often can be found in tapered columns and decorative trusses. Ideal for narrow lots (especially in cities where land can be very expensive), slim dimensions and front-facing garages make the most of the available land. If you're looking to stand out, consider a modern house plan with bold curb appeal. Simple ranch designs look great in almost any neighborhood.

Inside, you'll find many of today's hottest amenities, including large kitchen islands with seating at the snack bar, open great rooms, master suites with spa-like bathrooms, walk-in closets, mudrooms, versatile bonus rooms, and more.
