In a world that always seems to want more, you seek the simplicity of less with the intimacy of a 1 bedroom home plan design. Good for you! One bedroom home plans work perfectly in many different scenarios, including as add-ons to an existing property. A 1 bedroom house plan, like plan 25-4286 for instance, could actually be thought of as a guest house plan—i.e. a guest house that would sit next to the main house (assuming lot space and building rules and regulations permit). If you, for example, have adult children or an elderly parent or inlaw who needs to move in with you, a 1 bedroom guest house plan might suit you perfectly. Why? Because a detached-from-the-main house guest home offers greater privacy than an attached in-law suite (and when dealing with adult children, parents, and in-laws...sometimes a little extra separation—without being too far away--is a good thing)! Furthermore, to help supplement the mortgage, you could consider renting out a 1 bedroom guest house to local college kids or single professionals. Note that some of these 1 bedroom home plan designs are actually garages with living space above—meaning, even if you rented out the bedroom above the garage to someone else, you and your family could still utilize all or part of the garage below.
One bedroom floor plans—being small and affordable—also work well as starter homes for young, single professionals or married couples. Likewise, 1 bedroom house plans are ideal for vacation retreats. In the below collection, you’ll find breezy cottage plans that would work well for a small lot on the beach as well as rustic cabins and chalets that beg to be built in the snowy mountains.
