The House Plan Shop’s Affordable House Plan Collection

Affordable House Plan 031H-0140Affordable house plans are designed to satisfy the needs of a broad range of homebuyers. They are available in almost any architectural style from traditional to contemporary. They can be one or two stories or may consist of the main level and a finished basement. A variety of foundations are available with these floor plans as well, making it easy to accommodate various lot requirements. Affordable house plans can offer one or more bedrooms and baths. Depending on the arrangement of the floor plan, they are well suited for starter homes, empty-nesters and vacation homes. The affordable house plan collection presented by The House Plan Shop features homes that typically offer less than 1800 square feet of finished living space.

 

Because affordable house plans are typically small in nature, they generally feature compact and practical floor plans designed to deliver comfortable living without sacrificing functionality. Their space-saver floor plans are carefully created to meet tight budgets while still offering many of today’s most requested, functional features, such as a kitchen snack bar and an attached garage. They make the most use of every inch of living space.  Additionally, since these economical house designs are slight in stature they require less building materials, therefore making them affordable to build.

 

Affordable house plans are closely related to other cost-efficient home plan collections such as narrow lot house plans and bungalows.
