Besides modest square footage, what do these designs have in common? Openness, openness, and more openness. It’s the key to a small home that doesn’t feel cramped. You’ll also find multi-use spaces (like snack bars) and flexible finish-later rooms.

Simply Lovely


A covered porch creates a warm and welcoming invitation to enjoy the comforts of this lovely home. In the great room, the corner fireplace offers a beautiful focal point. An island with seating defines the kitchen and offers a serving counter or entertainment bar. The master bedroom provides a walk-in closet, double-bowl vanity, and shower. Two additional bedrooms share a full hall bath. Turned stairs lead to an unfinished basement. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Bonus Room Upstairs


Brick columns leading to the entrance provide bold first impressions to visitors of this home. Secluded to the far left of the plan are two bedrooms which share a full bath; the master suite is tucked away in the back right corner of the plan with an enormous walk-in closet and master bath. Living spaces are open to each other, with the kitchen easily serving the nook and living room and a dining room nearby. A bonus room upstairs can be finished later. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Supremely Open


Careful planning fits three bedrooms and an open, fireplace-warmed living area into a narrow footprint. Covered patios front and back shade the house. A cozy fireplace is placed on a side wall, leaving the back wall free for a great view of the yard. The kitchen’s island makes it easy to interact while cooking. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Sleek and Efficient


Who knew you could do so much with 1,509 square feet? The key is the open layout, which combines the great room, dining area, and (surprisingly large) kitchen into a single, free-flowing living space. Upstairs, the master suite enjoys a private bathroom with two sinks and a walk-in closet. Two more bedrooms share another bathroom, with the second-floor laundry and an optional bonus room nearby. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
