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.

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!

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 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.

Lovely Modern Plan for a Sloped Lot

Two Story Modern Farmhouse Dancer
MF-2699

Two Story Modern Farmhouse with Surprises

This Two Story Modern Farmhouse with a garage may be less than 30 feet wide, but it may surprise you with how much space we have been able to work into it. Making the home deeper allows us to create space in a floor plan with interesting, and unique ways.

The main floor office/4th bedroom includes a full bath, which is frequently found as a powder room in most homes of this size. This added flexibility in the home design is sure to be greatly appreciated when the unexpected family member needs to stay for a few nights.

The kitchen/dining room/family room are configured in a semi open format, allowing for a bit more privacy in the dining area than would otherwise be found in an open concept layout. We’ve also added an outdoor living area at the rear of the home that connects to the dining room, perfect for entertaining on hot summer evenings.

Upstairs on this modern “Dancer” house plan are two bedrooms, a large vaulted loft, and a sizable master suite. By adding a diagonal entrance to the already spacious master suite, we’ve broken up the geometry found in the rest of the home and have created a space that feels even larger. The walk in closet is quite generous, and the master bath has all of the amenities you could want, including a large standalone tub.
