Finding the right lot of land to build on is the first step in the home building process. In this stage of the building process, choosing the location, the slope, and size of the lot will help determine which house plan you build and the foundation you will need to build on. If you have acres to build on, you can choose any size house you want. But if you choose land in a suburban area, for example, the size of the lot can be limited. Due to the restrictions imposed by your local county, you may feel limited in your options for a house plan. The great news is we have a ton of stunning house plans in different styles ready to fit nicely on your narrow lot.
Characteristics of Narrow Lot House Plans
- Range in square footage and dimensions: Our narrow lot house plans rang from 414 sq. ft. to 5,700 sq. ft. giving you plenty of options to find the right house plan for you.
- Present a unique use of space: Some plans offer multiple stories with living spaces on different floors from the kitchen or bedrooms. They creatively place rooms to offer maximum living areas with minimal square footage.
- Economically efficient: As more urban areas are building narrow homes for those who dream of living closer to the city, these Narrow lot house plans are an efficient use of open, infill lots.
Why Choose a Narrow Lot House Plan
Building a new home from the ground up on a narrow lot does not have to require custom house plans. We have almost 2,000 narrow lot house plans that are more accommodating to your limited land. Our Narrow Lot house plans are typically no more than 40 feet in width with a few exceptions and can be 1 or 2 stories high in order to extend the square footage.

In addition, these narrow house plans encompass nearly every popular house style and the interior design features today’s homeowners crave. From the increasingly popular Modern Farmhouse style to the all-time favorite Craftsman to the cute Country design, we have plenty of Narrow Lot house plans to satisfy all your wants and needs.
