Building on a Narrow Lot
Especially in many high-demand areas, residential lots can be extremely expensive. Popular city suburbs and urban developments alike have seen skyrocketing prices for people looking to acquire lots to build. But don’t let this scare you!
Instead of breaking the bank for an “easier” lot, consider what a narrow lot can provide. Many of our unique homes for a unique lot are tailor-made for this situation, and they still have many of the same features as wider, more expansive plans. Some may even be more luxurious than you thought possible!
DFD-2571 is an example of a spectacular home made for a narrow lot. The 3 levels boast a drive-under garage on the bottom and 3 large bedrooms on top! Such things are practically unheard of in many bustling city environments. A striking contemporary plan such as this allows you to invest in a fashionable property, without breaking the bank on a larger lot.
We have many unique homes made especially for narrow lots. Large and small, and in a wide array of designs, check out some more great options in our Narrow Lot House Plan Collection.
The Benefits of a Sloping Lot

Unique homes for a unique lot cover a wide variety of building situations. Another type of lot that often gets overlooked by buyers is the sloping lot. Many homeowners simply ignore or miss out on the many benefits that a sloped lot can offer when it comes to choosing a plan.
One of the primary benefits of a sloping lot is that it allows you to build a full or partially finished basement! Great for additional spaces or future expansions, these plans might not be possible on a flat lot, because you need basement windows large enough for egress. Whether you want a family movie or rec room, an in-law suite, or extra storage, these unique homes for a unique lot can offer tons of features.
DFD-1876 is a beautiful Craftsman plan designed for a lot that slopes down from the street. The large daylight basement provides a patio door that opens to the backyard from the rec room – perfect for hosting indoor/outdoor summer parties! Features like this are convenient for you and can be valuable when you think about selling in the future.
Homes for sloping lots don’t just have basements. Many have drive-under garages, and even extra space to store things like a riding lawnmower. Take a look at all of these House Plans for Sloped Lots, and see what works best for you.
