Few homes are as special as your first one, which makes shopping for starter house plans all the more exciting -- especially with so many inspiring home plan designs to choose from. If affordability is first on your list, you'll find plenty of home blueprints that provide the family-friendly features you're looking for without breaking your budget. Look for flexible floor plans, with rooms and layouts that can accommodate a variety of uses. From quaint Craftsman bungalows, country cottages, Colonial and traditional plans to hip Mid-Century Modern, ranch, and split-levels you can become a first-time homeowner in most any style you like. In addition, many starter floor plans also offer two-car garages, fireplaces, and welcoming porches that can help make your first house feel like home.
