This family-oriented contemporary plan (pictured below) puts all the bedrooms on the second floor, where they are served by a game room that would be an ideal homework space. It’s easy to imagine an infant sliding into the bedroom closest to master. A vaulted ceiling and closet big enough to hold a crib, if need be, makes the master a special and practical space.
As the population ages, more families will become caretakers for elderly parents or relatives. These house plans with in-law suites offer the needed space (often on the first floor, ideal for a person with limited mobility). Of course, in-law suites can be used by buyers in many different situations, from owners who simply want comfortable guest accommodations to those with nannies or live-in caretakers. The suites themselves range from a simple bedroom and bathroom to more elaborate apartments suitable for semi-independent living (older children, perhaps returned from college and looking for a job, will especially appreciate the latter type). Some of these suites are even detached for the home for greater privacy. Either way, a house plan with an in-law suite offers outstanding versatility for the future. Adding onto an existing home? Consider one of our garage plans with apartments.
From simple entry-level homes to beautifully appointed (but still modestly sized) empty nests, these small homes (most under 2,000 square feet) deliver outstanding value. Buyers will love the ease of maintaining a smaller home. Today’s best small house plans keep costs down by eliminating little-used formal rooms (like living and media rooms) in favor of practical spaces like mud rooms, extra storage, and pocket offices. To maximize the useable space, pick a plan with an open layout, clear sightlines though the home, and an island kitchen.
These homes are best-suited to southern climates and feature thick walls and cool interiors. Heavy ornamentation such as wrought-iron window and door hardware, ornately carved and shaped columns, and patterned tile or ceramic floor treatments trace this style origins to the Old World. Spanish house plan elevations can be one- or two-story, with side gables and the typical low-pitched tile roofs of Spanish homes. Doors and windows of Spanish Revival houses are often constructed of thick wood and are decoratively carved.
