This two-story Colonial is ideal for a narrow lot and still includes a two-car garage (which can alternate with a breakfast room). Inside this 1,553 square foot home you’ll find a spacious kitchen with a large walk-in pantry that flows into the dining area and living room with fireplace.

A frustrated customer called today who had been looking for a small house plan without any luck. She had been trying to talk her husband into moving for over two years, but couldn’t come up with a floor plan that they both could agree on. She needed to keep the square footage under 1,800 square feet and needed a home plan that included an optional bonus room they could build out later and a split bedroom design with a basement. I gave her several house plans to look at but when she saw The Madison House Plan, she knew that was going to be the plan to get her husband to finally move out of their 1978 Cape. I was so happy to hear from Judy two days later ready to purchase and letting me know that finding something that both her and husband could agree on was a small miracle and how she really appreciated the customer service and help.
If you want to make sure that you never run out of hot water in your new home, you’ll want to consider a tankless hot water heater. A tankless hot water heater (also referred to as an on demand hot water heater) can be a great solution to your residential hot water needs because they don’t usually store hot water, but rather create it on demand.
There are some limitations and trade-offs to consider to installing a tankless hot water heater, but if properly used these appliances are absolutely great and energy-efficient. They come in point-of-use and whole-house versions and there are electric tankless water heaters and natural gas or propane models. Some tankless units are sized to heat a pot of boiling water, while others to designed to provide enough hot water for 2 or more bathrooms.
