Small and cheap houses are designed for families consisting of 2-4 people and can be designed on one or two levels. Small house plans are characterized by high functionality, enabling maximum use of every square meter, while significantly reducing construction costs. Small house designs are created in the same way as in any other project except that the space is organized creatively so that every square meter or foot is used optimally.
Modern small houses feature open plan concept which combines a living room, dining room, kitchen which are grouped into a single functional area and are separated by partitions, or light, or visually by using design techniques.
Bedrooms, bathrooms, walk-in closets are arranged in such a way so that the personal space of the occupants is protected from outsiders. If there is a second floor or an attic, these premises usually are on the second level.
