Whether built as an in-law unit for a larger home or as a stand-alone small dwelling, one-story homes have a lot to offer.
Styles range from woodsy cottages (ideal for affordable vacation homes in the mountains or at the lake) to cheerful Craftsman bungalows – and everything in-between. Some of these plans are garage designs with living space above, making them ideal additions to a larger home. Others make great starter houses. Couples without children – a growing group –may be surprised to discover how spacious and luxurious a one-bedroom home can be.
