FAQs About A Frame Home Plans

What exactly counts as a ‘narrow lot’?

There is no exact definition for a narrow lot house. But most architects think of them as house plans that measure 50 feet in width or less. The designs can range from small and affordable house projects to luxury coastal houses. From bungalows to cottages, to ultra-sleek and sophisticated contemporary multi-family homes.

What makes narrow lot house plans so great?
If land is scarce, then the obvious choice is to build up instead of out. Many of our customers opt for two-story house plans. Corner lot houses, multifamily houses — width alone is no barrier to crafting a home that you will truly love.

Having more than one storey also means you can choose where you want the master suite to be located. Better views are to be had on the higher floor, but then again the lower floor is more accessible. It is entirely up to you.

Planning to build on a sloping lot? Many of our customers opt for ‘walkout basements’. They open out onto natural slopes and provide even more living or storage space. These basements also provide handy extra room for more sleeping spaces and bedrooms or even as recreation rooms.

Narrow house lots have a special place for people looking for waterfront homes. By nature, narrow house floor plans have a coastal vibe — and they are often built to include plenty of windows and porches.


Family home plans for small unique homes

 The beauty of starting a narrow lot house plan from scratch is that you can envision it exactly how you want it. We regularly help to make narrow lot homes out of creative and flexible plans that suit the philosophy of the homeowner. 

For example, plans for narrow lots often include front-loading garages that make it easier to park in tight spaces. But in some cases it’s better to place the garage at the back of the house —  or to not include one at all. 

As they tend to be closely placed alongside neighbouring houses, narrow lots are often purpose-built for maximum privacy from neighbours. All sorts of narrow lot floor plans are made for privacy reasons, for example by including a side courtyard patio lot. 

Other popular plans include layouts with side porches. Popular family home plans such as the side porch allow for an excellent indoor-outdoor flow throughout the house. 


Modular narrow lot house plans

We dedicate ourselves to staying at the forefront of property design, which is why we develop modular and luxury narrow lot house plans. We have designed modular houses using insulated concrete frames to improve the property’s carbon footprint while reducing its construction time.
