Narrow Lot House Plans

The collection of Narrow Lot House Plans features designs that are 45 feet or less in a variety of architectural styles and sizes to maximize living space. Narrow home designs are well suited for high-density neighborhoods or urban infill lots. They may offer entrances or garages with alley access at the rear of the house, lending a pedestrian-friendly, rowhouse look from the front.

Narrow lot homes may look smaller from the street but can actually live large.

Narrow lot homes may look smaller from the street but can actually live large. Most of the house plans use space in an efficient, effective manner by lengthening the home or adding floors. Second or third floors for bedrooms and family rooms can offer as much separation of space and privacy as other types of house plans. It’s a great way to increase the square footage of the home on a narrow lot.

Some narrow lot designs may also include daylight basements or even basement garages. Basement space can be used for recreation rooms, hobby areas or storage.

Kitchens are generally laid out in an “L” shape with an island doubling as a breakfast bar and serving as a separation with the dining area.
