Narrow House Plans

Narrow House Plans Provide Endless Possibilities


If youíre planning on building an urban home in a high-density inner city zone where homes are being built close together, narrow house plans are available to help construct the layout of the home so every room efficiently and economically uses the space available. Architects will learn what you want from the house and create a design that gives you a floor plan that wonít make the space feel small or confined. While narrow home plans can be made for single story houses, many people will find that they must build up in order to be given the amount of rooms their family requires. 


A Narrow Home is a Perfect Solution for Urban Living


With the cost of living on the rise, many people are choosing to live in the same city where they work to cut down on the cost of gas. They may also find that itís more affordable for them to buy a narrow lot and build a custom home to replace a pre-built house in an old city or town. If you are looking to build in an area where there is a high demand for land, you may find that your only option is to build a narrow home plan. Narrow home designs can be built using one of the many different types of architectural home styles.  You can choose to build a country floor plan just as easily as deciding on a modern design.


An experienced architect will have techniques in order to create a narrow home plan that isnít cramped or unattractive. They will work with you to design your dream home even if it has a restrictive lot size. Extravagant or simple narrow house lot plans are available to suit your needs so the house matches your personal style. Working with a designer will help solve any problems you might have, including deciding on the amount of space you need a room to cover for furniture or determining where the location of your garage can be.


Narrow Home Plans Work in City and Suburban Neighborhoods


Narrow homes donít only have to be for those that are living in a crowded city. If you own a small plot of land that has restrictions on the size of the building you can construct, narrow home plans can be designed to work with the strict limitations while still providing you with a home you will thoroughly enjoy. Open floor plans give the interior an elegant appearance that blends each room in a way that makes the area appear larger than it really is. Every room will be economically designed so no space goes unused.


House plans for narrow lots wonít be more than 40 or 50 feet across depending on the area you plan to build. A professional architect will have the creative means to develop a home that fits all the rooms needed for the family. Narrow houses will generally be built with multiple stories in order to accommodate the common living areas and bedrooms. When done properly, the home should be unique and resourceful.
