Many people these days are opting for smaller homes in order to save money on construction and operating costs. This doesn’t have to mean that a home is inefficient or unattractive, as modern building plans from Prescott, AZ home builder Don Savage include efficient floor plans and features that will make living in one a breeze.
One of the features you’ll often see is open floor plans that have living room/kitchen/dining room combos that are perfect for entertaining in. Our New Haven model is a perfect example of this, containing a living room, kitchen and dining room that flow seamlessly together to create what seems like an endless array of space. If you’re entertaining, you can use the 8’ x 32’ deck to create even more space for your guests to relax in.
Smaller homes may also make use of features such as vaulted ceilings to help them appear bigger. Our Park Place, Santa Fe and New Haven models all boast 8-foot tall vaulted ceilings that lend an open feel to their interiors. Add a bay or garden window in the front of a home, and you’ll help to open up the space even further.
Adding the right features during new construction can also make a smaller home more functional. For example, homes that have built-in shelving in bedroom closets and pantries in the kitchen help ensure that there is a place for everything. Having an adequate number of electrical outlets will ensure it is easy to move televisions, computers and other electronics around as needed in order to make maximum use of your space.
Here at Don Savage Builders, we have a number of small floor plans that are nonetheless versatile and big on features. In addition, we’ll be glad to tweak these floor plans even more to accommodate your needs precisely. To find out just how functional today’s smaller homes can be, contact us.
