Less house, more home. If you’re concerned building a small house means sacrificing modern amenities, think again!
So, why build small? Here are a few things to consider:
- Maximize functionality in every square inch. Building a home is an investment, and it’s not secret consumers want to get the most bang for their buck. Smaller home plans are thoughtfully designed providing quality spaces that flow seamlessly, and allow comfortable living for homeowners.
- Purposeful spaces with quality materials. By building less square feet, the total construction budget can be invested into higher quality materials in spaces that will actually be used. Long gone are the days of living or dining rooms only used during special occasions.
- Save time and live simply. A smaller house means less cleaning, maintaining, and clutter. By allowing the quantify of time devoted to maintaining the home to decrease, families can experience a newfound sense of freedom to enjoy each other.
