Building on a Narrow Lot? Here are the best house plans to choose from!
The Sassafras #814
In areas where property values are exceptionally high, narrow lots are appealing because they are more affordable. At Donald A. Gardner Architects, we have been hearing from our customers that demand for narrow lot house plans is on the rise, as more and more people want to live in urban areas where land is at a premium. Yet, builders still want to be able to present their customers with home plans that have spacious interiors and curb appeal. This means, a specific type of house plan that accommodates demand for quality within minimal space is necessary.
This new house plan makes outdoor entertaining easy with a screened porch featuring a fireplace and summer kitchen!
Decorative brackets and a wide porch bring inviting curb appeal to this stylish house plan. The open kitchen serves both a large great room and a single dining area with bay window. A secluded master suite is set apart from two secondary bedrooms and a bedroom/study. Livability extends outdoors with large porches on both the front and rear and a screen porch with fireplace and outdoor kitchen.

Sliding barn doors are a great way to save space, and typically work anywhere you might use a pocket door. You can find a brand new, ready-to-install barn door, or get crafty and salvage one. A salvaged door can be refinished or simply cleaned up for a distressed look, and mounted with new hardware, like wall-mount kits from Johnson Hardware.
