Small House Plans: Discover Cozy Comfort

Cottage House Plans Small home living has been growing in popularity for a number of reasons. Considering that most small house plans are 1,800 square feet or less, living in a smaller house is both affordable and eco-friendly.

Ideal for any new home owners, small families or empty nesters, small house plans like cottages or narrow lots offer the comforts of a larger home in a setting that's easier to maintain on a smaller budget. With lower heating and cooling costs, small houses are not only easier on a home-owner's budget, but living in a small house is a growing trend because of the environmental impact of using less energy to make your home comfortable. Millions of people have discovered that by downsizing into a small home, they live a more simple and satisfied life.

Since small house plans have become so popular, they usually include popular features of larger house plans, like mud rooms, kitchen islands, and offices. In compact home plans, every square inch is utilized with efficiency and practicality in mind.

Browse through our small house plans to discover the cozy comfort you're looking for. We have dozens of styles that will fit any type of lot. Waterfront house plans, narrow lots, country cabins, modern homes, mountain chalets, vacation homes, bungalows and more - create a list of Your Favorites to reference any small house plans you're interested in each time you return.
