Building a new custom home in an urban area with smaller property sizes can present some challenges, especially when the lot is narrow. Local regulations may require setbacks that make the possible footprint even smaller, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a home with everything you want and need. You just have to work with a floor plan that was designed for narrow lots.
In fact, building on a narrow lot offers some advantages that prompt many families to seek out this type of property. It typically requires less maintenance because there is less yard space to care for. Homes on narrow lots also tend to feel more private because there are fewer windows at the front and the living spaces are deeper in the home.
However, these advantages are sometimes double-edged swords. Some of the challenges that exist include deciding where to place the garage, ensuring privacy with close property lines on the sides of the home, and maximizing outdoor living space. Many homeowners also struggle with making the interior spaces feel open and large with a narrow footprint.
