Infill development is big. Need a plan for a narrow lot? Check out these four terrific designs, each 41 feet wide or less with a two-car, front-loading garage.

Well-Planned Details


Great details make this efficient layout shine. For example, the garage opens directly into the kitchen (with the pantry nearby) for easy unloading of groceries, two sinks in the master suite let both partners get ready at the same time, and the dining nook receives lots of light from bayed windows on two sides. Two additional bedrooms sit far enough away from the master suite to grant privacy. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Four Beds + Playroom + Pocket Office


This smart, family-friendly design fits four bedrooms, a playroom, and much more into a compact layout (just 40'w x 40'd). The kitchen features an island for more prep room and opens completely to the breakfast nook and great room. A walk-in pantry and butler's pantry line the way to the semi-open dining room. Upstairs, you'll find four bedrooms (including the roomy master suite and its deluxe bathroom) plus a generous playroom and even a computer nook. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Great Family Design for a Compact Lot


This compact plan holds a surprising number of upscale features. For example, the master suite offers separate walk-in closets, a shower and garden tub, and even a tray ceiling. Three additional bedrooms, one with its own walk-in closet, access the convenient second-floor laundry room. Downstairs, an open layout makes the great room the focus, with its cozy fireplace, deck access, and easy flow to the island kitchen. A handy computer room near the breakfast nook serves as a great place to check email, look up recipes, or do homework. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Storage and Style to Spare


A rustic mix of stone, brick, and timber lends this design the distinction of an English country manor, while its narrow profile and whimsical arched entry keep it in scale. Inside, a beamed ceiling rises high above the spacious great room, which opens to the kitchen for maximum interaction. The open layout continues into a dining room awash in natural light; beyond that, a long covered porch is also accessible from the owner’s suite, which occupies a quiet rear corner of the plan. Upstairs, two bedrooms share a dual-sink bath and the oversize game room. Don't miss the handy storage coming in from the garage. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
