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.

Small House Plans for Sale:
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 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.
Plans start at $665 for unmodifiable and go up to $1,410 for Auto CAD files. Buy it Now
ePlans Cottage Plan 12028 is only 945 sq. ft. The living area is on the second story with the 2 bedrooms on the first story. I honestly would ditch one of the 2 bedrooms and make just one large bedroom down stairs instead of two small ones.
Plans start at $470 and go up to $700 depending on if you need to make modifications. Buy it Now
