Looking for a great starter plan? Despite their narrow dimensions and modest square footage, these four plans feature modern open layouts and amenities that buyers will love.

Surprisingly Spacious

A sweet shingled exterior steals attention away from this plan’s front-loading garage. Inside, the great room opens to the kitchen’s snack bar on one side and a small deck (shared with the master suite) on the other. The master suite includes a walk-in closet, private bathroom, and a view of the backyard. Upstairs, two additional (surprisingly large) bedrooms share a full hall bath. A powder bath on the first floor completes this smart, 1,672-square-foot plan. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Options and Amenities Included

Your buyers have choices with this clever 1,562-square-foot design. Would they prefer just a shower in the master suite, or a tub as well? A sitting area or an extra closet? The plan comes with all these options. It also provides amenities normally found only in larger homes, such as the second-floor laundry room and separate drop zone by the garage entrance, as well as an optional corner fireplace in the family room. Two secondary bedrooms share a full bath upstairs, with a powder bath serving the first floor. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Lots of Porches

Who wouldn’t be charmed by the small porch attached to this plan’s master suite? It draws the eye up on the attractive façade of this 1,164-square-foot design. Inside, a corner snack bar provides extra counter space in the kitchen. The dining room opens to the back porch, while the living room looks out to the wide front porch. Upstairs, three bedrooms are arranged to give the master suite privacy. A full hall bath serves the two secondary bedrooms, while the master suite includes a large shower, as well as a walk-in closet and the upper porch. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Traditional Curb Appeal

This sweet little home sports a good-sized front porch. The large, open dining and living rooms create a pleasing sense of space. The U-shaped kitchen includes a separate pantry. A nicely placed snack bar connects the kitchen with the dining area. The master bedroom, with its own full bath, as well as a second bedroom and another full bath, lie upstairs. A reading area provides a nice touch that buyers are sure to remember. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
