Learning the Needs of Your Narrow Lot

To many, a narrow or limited lot might seem undesirable, but it shouldn’t! Having a reduced footprint doesn’t mean that the interior has to feel small. Choosing one of our narrow homes with a garage can actually unlock a ton of possibilities. Let’s see some of those benefits!

When we say that narrow home designs have all of the same amazing offerings as plans with larger footprints, we mean it! The only difference with building on a limited lot is that the focus will be on building up and/or back instead of out. This means that many of our narrow homes with a garage have 3 floors! And since they’re built up, these designs can often bring faraway sights into your home from the higher stories.

Whether it’s a beautiful sunrise over the city or a romantic sunset in the country, position your house to capture the view. Some narrow homes even place their main living spaces on the uppermost floor to really take advantage of it! Designs such as THD-1457 (below) take it to a whole new level with huge statement windows. Just think about hosting a dinner party with gorgeous sights as the backdrop!

Fusing Style and Functionality

Perhaps the biggest reason why narrow homes with a garage are so popular is that they offer the best of everything. They have the style and functionality that you know and love about wider homes, but they adapt to limitations. They can give you the life you want in dream locations where you might not think you can build a house.

Parking in or around a city can be especially frustrating. With few spots and sky-high pricing, many people rule out city living for that reason alone. But with narrow homes with a garage, you can avoid this problem! Choose a design with a garage and you’ll make your life easier and even increase your home’s value. A win-win all around!
