Looking For Affordable House Plans

I got a call last week from a woman who was looking to build her first home in Virginia. Both she and her husband had moved from Chicago to Washington DC, when she was hired to work for the White House. After living in Washington for several months and knowing that her job would probably keep them in that area for a long time, they started searching for available land around the Washington D.C. area. They wanted to be practical (keeping their commute to a minimum), but still have their privacy, which is why they chose Alexandria. Situated across the Potomac River, they would be able to satisfy their desire for city life and country living.

It wasn’t easy for them to find a lot to build their new home, because they were only looking for a small piece of land to build an affordable home. They also wanted a house design that would allow them to have room to grow. After searching several house plans site, they called us based on the fact that we had the most extensive and diversified collection of small, affordable house plans. They were pleased to find out that we offered free modification quotes and shipping. After talking for over an hour and taking notes about their “must have” design features and lot challenges, I set out to find six house plans to show them that were under 2,000 square feet, had an open-floor plan, wrap-around porch and lots of flexible spaces.

Stay tuned…to see what house plan they will choose. I’m betting it will be the 1917 House Plan, which is not only from our small collection, but is a THD exclusive house plan.

  1. My sister and I are looking for something similar to build. We are both widows and have decided to build one house and live together. Can you share the other house plans you have found for the couple who plan to build a small home near the White House in Washington, D.C.?
