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.
This farmhouse boasts a contemporary open layout with the master suite and a guest room easy to reach on the first floor. Double doors in the great room open out to the deck. In the kitchen, an island adds prep space and the walk-in pantry sits just a short walk away from the two-car garage for simple grocery unloading. Two additional bedrooms (both generously sized) share a hall bathroom upstairs. For additional storage or leisure space, a bonus room over the garage can be finished and accessed from this level.
It’s no surprise that open floor plans are the layout of choice for today’s buyers. What explains their immense popularity? Many reasons: open layouts make small homes feel larger, create excellent sightlines, and promote a modern sense of relaxation and casual living. Buyers with children can keep an eye on the little ones while cooking, while those who love entertaining will appreciate the ease of interacting with guests while putting last-minute touches on dinner. Although the degree of openness can vary, these homes generally feature kitchens that flows right into the main living areas (frequently an island provides a bit of definition). They may also display open dining rooms and easy access to outdoor living.
