Little House Plans


A small house doesn’t have to mean tight, cramped living. There are many little house plans that creatively use and manage small space in a way that their residents still have the feeling of a larger, more open home. The plans and articles below contain several resources for information about getting the most out of a small home as well as actual home plans.

ePlans Tiny Country House 66032

ePlans Tiny Country House plan 66032¬† is still large enough for traditional financing (financing houses under 400 sq ft is tricky), but definitely considered a small house plan. Again, I think I’d ditch one of the bedrooms for one larger bedroom instead of 2 small ones.

Plans start at $405 up to $1,150 for Auto CAD plans. Buy it Now

ePlans Craftsman Bungalow 11192.

ePlans Craftsman Bungalow 11192 is 1,484 sq ft. Slightly larger than a traditional “small” house, but still small by modern standards. Three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and two stories.
