What Is Considered A Small House Plan?

As you consider options for building a house, you may find yourself veering away from a small house plan because you fear that you won’t have enough room. Images of the popular tiny houses that try to cram everything into less than 300 square feet may make you feel leery of even looking for small designs. However, the reality is that what is considered a “small house plan” may surprise you. Here’s what you need to know about small homes.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day and Pantone’s color of the year, Greenery, we have gathered a collection of home design photography with green hues! “A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings”.

According to Pantone, greenery is nature’s neutral. Incorporate greenery as an exterior home plan accent color on trim or gables. Deeper shades of green combined with earthy tones creates a house plan that blends with its natural surroundings. Inside your home plan, use different shades and intensities of green to create a diverse style that is serene and inviting.
