Choosing a Floorplan for Narrow Lot Homes

Posted by Melissa Lynn Galland on Jan 4, 2019 8:10:25 AM

Topics: Custom Home Floor Plan

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.

The professionals at Adair Homes have thought of all these challenges and created 12 narrow lot floor plans that you can customize for your lifestyle.

As home values continue to rise in the Pacific Northwest, it can be challenging for some buyers to find a home that will work for their needs without breaking the bank. However, you can increase your chances for success by building an affordable home using Adair’s innovative project management system. And, for buyers who qualify, leveraging the USDA loan can help stretch every dollar even further, bringing homeownership within reach for a growing number of customers.

Throughout the Pacific Northwest, growing demand for housing has led to a shortage in affordable homes—especially those at or below $250,000. However, Adair is helping to alleviate this problem by offering new-construction homes within these budget-friendly price points, enabling buyers to get the home they want, on their own property, at a price that would otherwise be impossible for a brand-new home.

Today, let’s take a closer look at two Adair floorplans that are ideal for buyers looking in the low $200,000s—a challenging range in today’s market.

Topics: Custom Home Floor Plan, homebuilding tips

Year after year, our customers continue to be drawn to homes with spacious, open floor plans. Another important feature is split bedrooms, where the master suite and the other bedrooms are located across the home from each other, providing family members and guests plenty of privacy and quiet.

The Oswego floor plan ticks both of these boxes, which is just one reason it has become a top-selling home. The 1,952-square-foot open-concept, ranch-style home offers three bedrooms and two baths, plus a den and an extended garage with a workshop. The Oswego is a great choice for growing families, because it has plenty of space, but it’s also popular with smaller families and singles who love to entertain—and its one-story design makes it attractive to empty nesters and multi-generational families who prioritize functionality.

We’re sure you’ll love the Oswego as much as we do. Join us as we take a room-by-room tour of this popular floor plan:
