Ideal House Plan for a Narrow and Elongated Lot

Sometimes we are challenged by the size and shape of the lots that we bought.  If you happen to buy a narrow and elongated lot, what will you do with it? How are you going to design it? This is a challenge for some architects and builders but whatever your kind of lot is, if the architect and designer are skilled on their craft, they will always find a way to make spectacular house plans for you.

House plans for narrow lots are becoming more popular these days in urban areas where there is really a narrow space to build properties. Architects and designers have a remedy for everything. For narrow lots, they build floor plans that are economically designed to make full use of the available space. The basic rule is that if you cannot expand sideways, you will expand upward.

The house that is in feature today has a total area of 8 meters by 20 meters.  Though 8 meters is not really considered too narrow but taking its length of 20 meters make it appear like it is an elongated type of lot.  So, what most lack in width, make up for in depth.

The house has four bedrooms with three bathrooms and one rest room under the stairs.  It has a spacious living room, a dining area, a kitchen, and a car parking and a small garden.

You can view from the perspective here how the house was designed.  It was designed having a long walk through that actually encloses the living room, dining area and the kitchen, which makes it appear a little spacious because the space is shared by these three main areas of the home.

It allows more space to move around rather than putting dividers to make sections.  This opens pace is always preferred because it gives a mood of a more relaxed ambiance rather than having an overly decorated one.

Sleek and narrow as it is, it is never a problem because you can actually increase the levels to accommodate for more space for other stuffs and rooms.

You can design it with having the garage and the living room and one bathroom only on the ground floor if you wish to have a very spacious living room and function hall.  You can place your kitchen and dining areas on the next level with one bedroom and you can make another level to accommodate other bedrooms if you wish.
