Small Home Plans : A Growing Trend

Small  Home PlanAre you considering downsizing to a smaller home? You're not alone! In line with a growing national trend, many homeowners are beginning to seek small home plans in contrast to the sprawling, suburban "McMansions" that have gained in popularity over the last decade. Small home plans are well-suited to the simplistic lifestyle preferred by many of today's young couples, and they provide economical living space for retirees who don't want to spend a lot of time and money maintaining a large home. Others are just looking for a more economical and environmentally conscious lifestyle, for which small home plans are ideal. And you don't have to sacrifice features just because you are downsizing the footprint of your home. Efficient use of space in our small home floor plans allows us to include plenty of "big home" features such as covered front porches, kitchen breakfast bars, and walk in closets.
