 SMALL House & Home Plans


Small home plans are those home designs with less than 1600 square feet finished living area. Whether you are looking to build your first home or are looking forward to 'down-sizing' your life-style, Design Basics offers over 300 one-story, two-story with the owner bedroom on the main level, and two-story with the owner bedroom on the upper level small floor plans. Most of these home plans have been built - many featuring with exterior and interior photography.

At 1,596 sq. ft. home plan #42227 features an open, intimate floor plan in a compact 40' by 59' footprint.

These may be small house plans, but they are designed keeping efficient use of space in mind and to live a bit larger than their actual size. Small home plans can be an affordable home to build. Small, however, does not need to mean entry level or home plans lacking the features and amenities you want and desire. Our collection of small home plans are offered in every style and type - including traditional, craftsman, farm house, french country, mediterranean, eurpoean, histoical, and French-eclectic home plan styles.


Each of our small house plans including those featured here can be customized to your specific needs. Our Plan Alterations department can alter any of these plans to make it the perfect home for you.
