Living Efficiently with Small House Plans

     Small house plans are defined as being houses that do not exceed 1,500 square feet.  Most small house plans follow the style of cottages, vacation homes, or beach houses.  Whatever the style, small houses are usually European influenced in some aspect because that is where the idea of building a frugal and sensible home originated.  Small house plans usually include 1 or 2 bedrooms and 1 or 2 bathrooms.  Some that range in the lower end of 1,500 square feet have living space that is combined in one room overall.
     These single bedroom small house plans are very economical for one person or small families.  A small house plan should have maximum space efficiency because of the low square footage.  This will give it a comfortable feeling and make the home seem more spacious than it actually is.  Not only should the space be arranged efficiently, but the building materials and supplies used are also sensibly utilized and thought out.  Overall, small house plans are an efficient and frugal living scenario.
