Multigenerational households aren't all wealthy, but many of the house plan designs that you'll find with in-law suites are pretty big. What about homes for those who can't afford a huge lot or 4,000 square feet, but still need space for an elderly parent or grown child? Check out these new floor plans.

Flexible Modern Farmhouse

Contemporary, open, and versatile: that describes this new 2,522-square-foot design. Modern farmhouse styling feels both on-trend and classic. Inside, the master suite is easy to reach on the main floor, where it pampers owners with a large shower, separate tub, and two sinks in its private bathroom. Near the front, a guest suite stands ready for visitors. Another option for family members, whether visiting or live-in, is the bonus room upstairs, which can be finished to offer a large suite for a young adult (or perhaps even grandkids). See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Ranch Style with Two Masters

This elegant ranch home would make a great empty nest with a private suite for visitors (like grown children). A den provides space for hobbies or working from home. Other highlights include the master suite’s huge shower, the surprisingly spacious laundry room, and a big kitchen island. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Impressive Storage

Nice surprises await buyers throughout this 2,514-square-foot modern farmhouse, from the master suite’s walk-in closet direct door to the laundry room (making it easy to throw in a load of clothing) to the pocket office in the kitchen. Lockers in the mudroom keep backpacks and such organized. Over on the right side of the home, three secondary bedrooms (one with a private bathroom and a fun bench by the window) hold family members and visitors. A bonus space upstairs invites future expansion. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Simply Family Friendly

This 2,329-square-foot design provides an easy-living layout on one level, with a large bonus room available to finish upstairs. Two secondary bedrooms sit on the left, while the master suite enjoys privacy on the opposite side of the home. A guest suite near the front makes a peaceful haven for visitors or an elderly relative. Thoughtful features include double sinks in two of the bathrooms, abundant storage, and French doors to the back porch. See more images, information, and the floor plans.
