Skinny House Plans

I remember the first Skinny house I saw, and I thought it was a prank. Skinny homes are a relatively new happening, but have emerged to solve a growing need in many inner cities. Not long ago the idea of a single family home of only 15 feet wide was unimaginable. Zoning, land costs and the desirability of close to downtown neighborhoods have created this style. Many cities now encourage this type of housing to increase density without sprawl, or adding significant new infrastructure.

Modern Skinny House PlanSkinny Home Designs

Much can be done in a footprint of 15-20 feet wide. Many clients are pleasantly surprised to see how much light, shared space and open feel can be achieved in Skinny House Plans. This is a growing collection that has no end in sight. The skinny house movement is spreading and bringing much value and increased density to already existing infrastructures throughout the United States and Canada. We have these adorable light filled and affordable designs available from Traditional  styles all the way to Modern Skinny House Plans.

Farmhouse Duplex
MF-2694

Finally, a Farmhouse Duplex!

Builders are always looking for fresh, exciting, and inspired designs for subdivisions. We’ve created a collection of exciting new duplexes, not the least of which capture the charm and allure of a farmhouse. This new Farmhouse Duplex “10 Gallon” will fit in just about anywhere you choose to build it, while still standing out as the most beautiful home on the block.

The three exterior options for this modern house plan are all uniquely conceived yet form a cohesive collection. We’ve designed the floor plans to be virtually identical, save for a slight tweak to the kitchen to accommodate the upper floor staircase. Entering into the main floor, you’ll find yourself in the open concept kitchen/dining room/great room layout. The kitchen looks out the front of the home and gets plenty of light both from the front and the side. An added bonus to both of the kitchens are islands that look out over the dining and great rooms, allowing for a sense of community and space that are often lost in farmhouse duplex designs.

The bedrooms are all laid out at the rear of the floors and are arranged to maximize privacy in such a narrow plan. Bedrooms #2 and #3 sit further forward and are separated by a shared full bathroom. Down the hallway of this farmhouse plan is a full utility room (on both floors). The main bedroom suite gets a private location at the back of the floor, with  plenty of natural light from the back of the house. The en suite bathroom includes side by side sinks and a full size shower/tub combo.

We are happy to make custom modifications to any of our home designs, just write to us via our contact page with any requests or questions you may have. Click here to view more of our farmhouse duplex plans.

NOTE: This plan is available everywhere except for Marion County, Oregon and Kootenai County, Idaho.

Skinny Two Story House Plan
MF-1728

A Skinny Two Story House Plan with Farmhouse Flair

It is often that case that when faced with a tricky, narrow lot, builders don’t have a ton of options for classy, unique home designs. We want to put an end to cookie cutter neighborhoods. This skinny two story house plan captures all of the essence of a warm, inviting farmhouse and wraps it into a neat and narrow footprint fit for any subdivision. This home really is a jewel.

This sleek and lean floor plan starts off with a gorgeous, open main floor. The living room flows into the dining room, which itself flows into the kitchen. A clear sight-line from the kitchen to the living room promotes a warm, familial living space that lends itself wonderfully to entertaining. The main floor also includes a small side porch, a rear entry, two car garage, and a powder room.

The upper floor of this home is where you’ll find all of the bedrooms, as well as a loft (easily converted to a small home office) and the utility room. Starting with the two guest bedrooms, they both sit at the rear of the home and get plenty of natural light. The utility room and full bathroom sit in the hallway, allowing easy access from all of the bedrooms. At the opposite end of the hallway is the vaulted main bedroom suite. This bedroom is a very comfortable size, and gets total privacy from the other two bedrooms. The en suite bathroom of this unique house plan offers the full compliment of deluxe features, including a large walk-in closet, a private toilet, separate tub and shower, and side by side sinks.

NOTE: This plan is available everywhere except for Marion County, Oregon and Kootenai County, Idaho.

Cozy, Skinny Rustic Home

This rustic home captures all of the charm and style of a large farmhouse and presents it in a compact, easy to build package. At just under 800 square feet, it’s a great option for the single person or couple that knows exactly what they need from their home. However, that isn’t to say that it doesn’t have plenty of great, flexible features.

Approaching the home, you’ll see the large bank of windows that look out of the great room. Just to the left is the entry, which puts you right in the great room. Once inside the home, you’ll get a real sense for how much bigger this home lives than the square footage would make you think. With a vaulted ceiling, adjoining dining room, fireplace, and folding door access to the outdoor living space, it’ll feel like you’re in a much larger home. Just off of the great room is a lovely den, something not often found in homes of this size.

The kitchen is fully featured and includes an island/bar for more informal dining. Tons of counter space, thoughtful appliance placement, and natural light make this kitchen a surefire winner. A full bathroom lies just beyond the kitchen, and even includes hookups for stackable appliances. Just past the bathroom is the vaulted bedroom. This is a really special bedroom; you’ll get a fireplace, a vaulted ceiling, a walk-in closet, and last but not least, separate access to the covered outdoor space. Rounding out the floor plan is a large outdoor storage closet, perfect for landscaping equipment, outdoor furniture, or anything else you might need a little extra space for.

Farmhouse Studio
MF-1562

Farmhouse Studio with Garage

We’ve taken all of the appeal and charm of the classic farmhouse and distilled it down into a studio plan that will fit on tons of lots. With this plan you get a compact yet flexible design that affords you either an additional rental on your property, a primary residence (with the addition of a kitchen), an art studio, a gym, or anything else you can imagine.

A large two car garage with extra depth adds room for a project area or extra storage, and a staircase to the right of the garage will take you up to the studio/loft. Here is where you can really let your imagination run wild. There is a very sizable storage closet just near the main door, as well as a full bathroom and room to build out a kitchen if you’d like.

The sky is the limit with this compact design! If you have any questions or would like to make modifications to this home, reach out via our contact page here.

A Skinny Modern Masterpiece

So often people are forced to sacrifice functionality in order to fit a home onto a narrow lot. We take pride in our ability to create elegant, very functional floor plans that fit on lots of all sizes. This skinny modern design boasts stylish shed roof style, three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and a delightful open main floor.

Speaking of the main floor, let’s take a brief tour through this beautiful home. When you enter the front door, you’ll see before you a long, open concept living core that starts with the great room, progresses through the dining room, and then on into the kitchen. We’ve given this home a U-shaped kitchen that supports the open feel while still maximizing usable kitchen space. This can often be a huge hurdle in a narrow home. Rounding out the main floor, we have a powder room just next to the staircase and a single car garage.

As you head to the upper floor, you’ll arrive at the third bedroom, along with a hallway that gives access to the utility closet on the left, the second bedroom, a full bath, and, last but not least, the master suite. We’ve created a master bedroom that gets a boatload of natural light from the front of the home. A total of 5 windows on the front and side of the home make your master suite light and inviting. The master bathroom has all the necessary trappings: a private toilet, his and hers sinks, and a full size shower and a walk-in closet much bigger than is usually found in a skinny modern home of this size.

We can make modifications to any of our house plans, just write to us through via our contact page with any questions you have!

A Skinny House Plan with a Fully Featured ADU

This is a great example of how to get big living in a skinny house plan. This home is less than 15 feet wide but packs in tons of bedrooms, living space, and even a deluxe ADU. The main house has 5 bedrooms, each with their own full, en suite bath(!). This gives you functionally 5 master suites. The bedrooms are sized roughly the same, with the added bonus of the upstairs bedrooms being vaulted. The main floor is a long, open concept kitchen/living room layout with a fireplace and windows all along the length of the home to let in plenty of light. The utility room is on the upper floor between the two bedrooms. The ADU opens up a world of possibilities. You can house long term guests, renters, or even extended family in this fabulous home. An incredibly flexible space, the ADU boasts two floors of living coming in at just about 900 square feet. The entrance is completely separate from the main home, a huge bonus if you decide to rent it out. The main floor includes a lovely and carefully placed kitchen, as well as a sizable living room and a bedroom with a full bath and walk in closet. Upstairs you’ll find two additional bedrooms, also with their own full en suite bathrooms. We can make modifications to any of our homes, and welcome any questions you may have.

Lovely Modern Plan for a Sloped Lot

This is an exciting modern plan for a gently sloping lot with a view to the rear. You’ll enter the home with the kitchen on the right behind a pocket door and the powder room and laundry closet on the left. The kitchen has been designed in an L shape to accommodate plenty of kitchen activity. A large central island offers a view out to the great room as well as a place to prepare food, work, and gather. The master bedroom gets its own private half of the home and comes with tons of windows for ample natural light. The master suite also offers a private wraparound deck accessible only via the bedroom. This makes enjoying the outdoors very easy. In the master bath you’ll see we’ve included all of the features you could want: a large walk-in, separate shower and tub with a view, a private toilet, and his and hers sinks.  Downstairs is a very large space that could serve as a rec/family room, guest quarters, play room, home theater, or all of the above. Don’t forget the two car, side entry garage down below that opens up into the rec room.  This is an exciting “not too big” modern plan that has been designed to stringent green standards.

Use all three bays for extra car storage on your property, or just occupy one bay and use the rest of the space as workshop, art studio, music studio, gym, or anything else you can imagine.

The upper floor is a full fledged, 640 square foot, one bedroom home with all of the amenities you’d expect and then some. Arriving inside the home, you’ll walk into the open concept kitchen and vaulted living room, where a fireplace and a fully loaded kitchen make living easy. Also in the kitchen is the entrance to a sizable, 35′ wide attic. On the way to the bedroom, you’ll pass by the utility closet and the full bathroom.
