3 House Plans for First Time Buyers

Buying your first home can be one of the most important and special moments of your life. For those ambitious enough to build their own, we have more than 1,000 plans to help with your journey. With so many starter plans to choose from, this makes the search for the perfect home that much more exciting.

Something to keep in mind during this process is to look for home plans with flexible space that will allow you to accommodate for a variety of uses. Although affordability is most likely at the front of your mind, there are plenty of plans that will offer everything on your wish list, such as welcoming porches, two-car garages and even open floor plans while staying within your budget. Here are three house plans from our collection that we think could be the perfect fit for any first time buyer.

1. Azalea Park

The Azalea Park house plan is a charming cottage that is a great option for first time buyers. Whether built in the countryside or in a quaint suburb, this plan offers it all. The beautiful covered porch and two-car garage give plenty of space outside, while the open floor plan inside works as a functional area for entertaining.

The master suite is located on the main level, offering convenience and privacy for parents while the children are roomed upstairs. Details like a mudroom off the garage, a large screened porch and an optional loft area upstairs make this home an ideal candidate with room for growth.

2. Bradley

The Bradley house plan is a gorgeous ranch option that comes complete with a large covered porch, modern layout and plenty of square footage. A two-car garage and spacious back deck give plenty of space for outdoor recreation. The vaulted master suite is on the right wing of the house giving home buyers their privacy from the rest of the home.

Two additional bedrooms with a shared bathroom are on the opposite side of the home. Another great addition to this house is a bonus room on an optional second floor, which can easily be finished to hold another bedroom and bath.

3. Firethorn Holly

The Firethorn Holly is a beautiful patio home that is ideal for easy living while keeping the appealing details that homeowners look for. The wide open floorplan gives the appearance of an abundance of square footage while continuing to be a functional space. The kitchen, grand room and dining area are all vaulted with beams and skylights above.

A covered porch off of the grand room gives owners a space to enjoy outdoors. The master suite is located at the back of the home, giving optimal privacy to the occupants, while a second bedroom is housed at the front of the home for guests. If you are looking for a smaller sized home with optimal use of space, this plan is an ideal choice.

While these three plans are exceptional choices, there are still plenty more to look through if they don’t meet exactly what you are looking for.
