The Best House Plans Under 2,000 Square Feet

Because good things come in small packages.

When it comes to the perfect home size, we don’t subscribe to the ‘bigger is better’ mentality. In fact, some of our very favorite things come in small packages, including house plans. To us, a cozy cottage packs more charm per square foot than any McMansion. And the wonderful thing about our most loved Southern Living House Plans that land under 2,000 square feet? They live big. With efficient design and strategic styling, these lovely abodes are set up for success and capture every bit of the character and livability of a larger home, while eliminating the bulkiness of unused spaces and stress of constant upkeep. From spacious open layouts to dreamy wraparound porches, these small-scale homes are guaranteed to have you smitten (and looking to downsize!).
