Home Plans for Small Lots

Just imagine this situation. You’ve shopped around and chosen the perfect lot to build your dream home. You’ve moved forward and actually purchased that land. These are big, albeit under-appreciated steps on your way to building! Now your next step is to find the blueprints for your new home. The problem is, with building jurisdiction requirements, your buildable area is actually a lot smaller than you thought it would be. Don’t worry—we have tons of options perfectly suited to the challenge! Check out the following home plans for small lots that can help you make the most of what you have. If you like these but need more house, be sure to explore our collection because we have plenty of larger homes with compact footprints, too!
