They are all in the small to midsize range, so they're the perfect projects for today's budget-conscious builders and clients. Check out our Top-Selling Collection to see more in-demand homes!
An Affordable Home with Three or Four Bedrooms

Not sure what the market wants in your area? A flexible design like House Plan 7229 makes it easy to appeal to growing families and at-home professionals alike with up to four bedrooms—the fourth of which would make a lovely office, if preferred. With 1,998 square feet packed with built-ins for storage and a two-car side-entry garage, this exclusive home offers practicality and great curb appeal for today's consumers.
A Semi-Traditional Home with Greater Privacy

You might recognize this design—House Plan 8516 was the most popular plan among builders in 2020! It still offers tons of appeal in a 2,188-square-foot, three-bedroom layout similar to that of House Plan 7229, above. It stands out with a longer, more formal foyer alongside a traditional dining room with a trayed ceiling. The great room is vaulted, complete with decorative beams. This home also creates even more privacy for the master suite by tucking it deeper down its own hallway!
