Home Plans with Cost to Build

To help you trim down your house plan options, here are the top ones to consider. These options were determined to be under $300K to build based on the national average, so the actual cost may vary noticeably depending on the specific location in the US.

Square Shaped House

If you’re looking to make the most of a lot’s living space, a great option would be this 1758 sq/ft hip-roof house. This house has an accessory dwelling unit and open floor plan to maximize its square footage. Also, it includes an integrated storage design to keep the house clutter-free and organized.

On the first floor, there is the ADU and a separate house unit. Meanwhile on the second floor, there is a kitchen, dining area, and living room. This living room lets in lots of natural light and gives you a good view of the outside. Yet, it still also provides adequate privacy from the surrounding area.

The two bedrooms on the second floor can be easily converted into a hobby room or home office. On the other hand, the first floor ADU allows you to use it as a guest room or rental space.

Modern Style Home

This double shed roof home is a great option if you’d like to fully utilize your lot’s living space. The open floor plan maximizes every square foot, and an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is also included in the plan. Also built-in are storage features that help keep the house tidy and organized.

The ADU is on the first floor, together with a separate house unit. There is also a double garage where you can park your vehicles or use as a storage area. Since the ADU is on the first floor, you can use it as a guest area or rental space.

On the second floor, you have a kitchen, dining room, and a living room that allows a lot of natural light. Also, the living room provides both privacy inside and a good view of the outside. There is also a bedroom on the second floor that can be transformed easily into a hobby room or home office.

2000 sq ft House

This L shaped home meets the demands of modern day life by providing you an inside layout that’s diverse. Homes similar to this are partitioned into many distinct areas, thus creating zones for family members and their individuality.

At the back, there is a kitchen and dining room perfectly placed near the roofed porch. There is a main living area as well. On the other hand, the front yard can easily be made attractive partly because the garage has a side entry.

The home’s side accommodates the master bedroom, which has an open closet and a huge bathroom. It’s the best vantage point of the open lot, while also providing privacy and peace. For even more privacy, the two other bedrooms are not placed near the master suite. These bedrooms can be easily converted into a hobby room or office.

Contemporary Style Home

With its diverse interior layout, this contemporary home complements the variety of modern living. Homes like this are subdivided into a couple of different areas which can be designated to members of the family or activity type.

The right wing houses a main living area, as well as a kitchen and dining room which are near the roofed porch at the back. On the other hand, the left wing is where the master bedroom is at, and it has a good view of the house lot. Even so, it still has peace and privacy.

Aside from the master suite, there are two additional bedrooms that are transformable into a hobby room or home office.

L Shaped House

This house plan embodies modern living, and highlights natural light, open spaces, and cozy accommodations for both visitors and residents. The design seamlessly combines communal and private areas, with its wings having a great balance between social interaction and personal relaxation.

The right wing is where the master bedroom is at, and it has a walk-in closet and a large bathroom. It also has the best view of the lot’s open area, while still providing privacy and peace. Aside from the master bedroom, there are two other bedrooms that are convertible to a hobby room or home office.

On the other hand, the left wing is where the main living area is at. It also has a dining area and a conveniently located kitchen. The left wing is also where the front entry, two-car garage is.

Mid Century Modern House Plan

This design is well suited for a contemporary lifestyle because of its emphasis on natural light, open areas, and the comfort of visitors and residents. The house plan blends together communal and private spaces very well, with the wings having a great balance of privacy and socialization.

In the central part of this home, you’ll find the living room, dining area, and the kitchen (which is also located close to the covered porch at the back). Those are separated from the master bedroom so that it has tranquility and privacy. The master suite also has access to the private back porch, as well as an open closet and spacious bathroom.

There are also two more bedrooms, one of which is near the master bedroom. The other one is on the opposite wing, near the two-car garage that has a side entry.

Contemporary Home Design

This contemporary home is designed for modern day living. It features a diverse layout inside — the house is divided into a couple of distinct zones which are designated to family members and activities or events.

This house plan cleverly separates the common living areas from the bedrooms, for both functionality and privacy purposes. And so, the guest bedroom is quite comfortable for visitors. On the other hand, the master bedroom offers a peaceful retreat.

In addition to all of that, there is also a two car garage that has a convenient side entrance.

Small Modern House

This is a hip roof home that has both a contemporary and classic design. The exterior features a charming mix of stucco and stone, giving the house a facade that is visually pleasing and timeless, and that which complements the overall elegant aesthetic.

Inside, the house plan focuses on functional living. The open central section seamlessly blends together the living room, dining area, and the kitchen (which, by the way, is near the roofed porch at the back). This design creates a versatile and welcoming space for social gatherings or family activities.

On the house’s left wing, there is a bedroom that provides flexibility and comfort. Near it is the detached garage. On the other hand, the right wing is where the luxurious bedroom is at. Adjacent to it is another bedroom which can also serve as a workspace or tranquil retreat.

Affordable Modern House

There has been a lot of talk lately about Modern Design. It seems like everywhere we look, whether it’s on social media or in magazines, the topic is buzzing. Even HGTV can’t stop talking about it! But what’s really interesting is that modern design actually started way back in the early 1900s.

Over the years, there have been many house plan styles and schools of thought, but modern style has always focused on strong geometric shapes. You’ll often find sleek surfaces, big windows, neutral colors, and top-of-the-line features in modern design – whether it’s in architecture, furniture, or even cars. In fact, Steve Jobs and Jony Ive from Apple were the first to bring these modern elements into electronics with their Mac computers, iPods, iPhones, and iPads.

Modern home design has been popular in certain parts of the U.S. for a while now but is now gaining traction all over the country and even globally. While the cost to build house plans can be as high as it can, architects and designers have realized that great residential architecture doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag. It’s all about smart planning and pushing creative boundaries – both in terms of design and budget.
