Short on space but big on ideas? This unique house plan is perfect for those that are looking to do a lot with little by allowing you to make the most out of your space. The ground level is barrier free with zero walls, creating an open environment ensuring that space is not lost due to walls taking up space or creating corners that are inaccessible. This results in a perfect area for hosting parties, gatherings, or simply lounging with friends and family. It promotes a community feel as individuals are allowed to mingle in one collective area. The large floor to ceiling windows contribute to this open impression by allowing plenty of natural light to enter in addition to seamlessly blending the ground level with the joined patio. The upper level serves as a great juxtaposition to the lower level providing a great amount of privacy within its three bedrooms and two baths. Located separately from the common areas downstairs assures that noise won’t as easily disturb those sleeping. For those looking to build in urban areas where space is limited, this modern two-story house plan can make a narrow lot feel like a whole lot more.
