These home plans for narrow lots were chosen for those whose property will not allow the house's width to exceed 55 feet. Your lot may be wider than that, but remember that local codes and ordinances limit the width of your new home, requiring a setback (from the property line) of a certain number of feet on either side. You may wish to choose one of our two-story house plans to maximize interior space, since the home's “footprint” will be limited. Another option is to choose from floor plans that are quite long from front to back. Still another way to get more space is by building on a full basement, which may be finished or simply used for storage.
