The average square footage of 2 bedroom house is between 1,300 and 1,700 square foot.
The average dimensions is between 200 to 250 sq ft for the master bedroom, and 100 to 150 sq ft for the second bedroom.
The average price for a 2 bedroom plan is between $800 and $1,400, although you can find many options that fall outside those ranges, and they come in many different designs and dimensions. Some have very distinctive characteristics with the most common types including a larger master bedroom and a smaller second bedroom.
While not for everyone, the A-frame building is clearly one that stands out in the landscape. Its steep, featured angles create a unique way of showing off top rafters, having its peak in popularity between the mid-50s through the 70s. While no longer being the style desired by the masses, these houses command respect with their defining characteristics, and many people still seek out building them as we’ve entered the third decade of this millennial.
This page brings together all the various A-frame options featured on our site for you to easily compare the various plans before making up your mind. By using the various filters, you can select the number of bedrooms you desire, whether it be 2, 4 or some other number.
2 bedroom 2 bath
Many people, including small families find that 2 bedroom, 2 bath houses are what they are looking for given their flexibility and affordability. Many growing families find they may not have the budget to be spending on 3 or 4 bedroom places, but find that the 2 bedroom, along with 2 baths ensure a level of peace in the house hold, that wouldn’t be there if all the family’s members had to share one single bathroom in the morning.
On this page you can find a list of different options, and if you suddenly find that you are looking for something slightly bigger, although without the need to necessarily add additional bathrooms, we also offer 3 bedroom, 2 bath options. Are you not finding exactly the house plan you’d hope for? Be sure to check in frequently as we’re adding more options.
If one of your driving forces is to find an option that is affordable to build, it’s also relevant to consider which type of roof and foundation you’re going with. While these may be the golden standard for building projects, it does not need to mean that the place you get is going to be boring.
You can still make your dream come true with these rectangular designs, simply by browsing the platform and finding the options that best fit the needs you may have. As it’s obviously a big decision, we have made it possible for you to wishlist any home plan you may find appealing before choosing to make the big jump and placing an order. Are you not necessarily feeling you’re finding what you’re looking for? Start your search among our round houses instead, and see if you find something there that you may like.
Porches are great additions to any home. It is easily where you can end up sitting and spending those long nights, just appreciating the company of your significant other. This section is dedicated to designs with a front porch, although there are also other sections of this website that are purely dedicated to other options, such as the wraparound porch, for instance.
We are not saying that one is better than the other. If you’re building your home on a narrow lot, chances are you definitely won’t have the needed space in order to have a wraparound porch, and then it surely makes sense to have a front porch. They can even be installed on row houses too, if you’re building something that you’re likely to want to rent out.
If you’re specifically looking for options that are good for renting out, we propose you also take a look at our duplexes, whereas some of them may have a garage in the middle, to help separate the two living areas.
If you’re not finding the house plans that truly match with what you’ve been looking for, or perhaps you find your ideal option but they do not contain a porch, we encourage you to reach out to us as most of the plans can be customized to your needs.
Not all houses have to be mansions, and it’s perfectly reasonable to desire something smaller, something that can be built using simple houses.
Simpler houses also have other advantages to them – they’re usually a lot better financial options, too. Like duplexes, they can be really sound investments if you want to rent out your property at a later point. Their lower price tag is appealing to someone not looking to build a 6 bedroom house, but perhaps rather a 1,400 square foot one. On this page, we have gathered all the different homes that fall under the category, “simple”.
We often find that people desiring to build simpler models also have the desire to do so more cost-effectively, and with the ability to recoup all your investment should you choose to sell at a later stage. If that’s the case, it’s a good idea to consider a middle-of-the-market option. What that means is that you make conscious decisions with choices of materials and other things so that you won’t end up with a home that is only appealing to you and your taste buds.
Did you ever wonder where saltbox houses got their name from? This is a traditional, Colonial style that came out of New England. While seen from the front, the roof looks symmetrical, although if seen from the side, it becomes clear that the roof slopes so that the front of the house has 2 stories, while the back of the house has a single one.
The house additionally has some recognizable features, including a flat front, although the shape of the roof, and the way the floors are built is the most easily recognizable, and they got their name from the saltbox they resemble that was used at the time, when they started popping up around 1650.
At the time when they started appearing, the design started appearing since people chose to extend the side of the roof on one side, which would make for a relatively cheap way to increase the square footage of the home, being especially popular when the need for more space arose, often due to growing families. Today, the style is simply being built, and has been much so improved since its original concept.
Should you have any questions regarding our saltbox options on this page, do not hesitate to reach out to our support staff, and we’ll be happy to help.
1 or 2 bathrooms
No matter the size of the place that you’re building, you need to figure out the amount of bathrooms that you want, and while you may choose to get more bathrooms than you have bedrooms in the house, it really is more common to either have 1 or 2 bathrooms when you’re building a 2 bedroom house.
If you are building something that has a master suite, it’s not uncommon to end up having 2 bathrooms – one that is attached to the master bedroom and another one that is in the common area that can either be used by your guests or that can be used if you have other family members living in the other bedroom.
Open floor options have grown exponentially in popularity, and it is no different whether you’re building a house with 2 bedrooms or you are building a home with 3 bedrooms. The great thing about this design is how easy it is to actually let in a bunch of natural light, which means you won’t need to use electricity for lamps.
Under 1,000 or 1,500 sq ft
Not everyone is looking to build a massive mansion, for various reasons. Whether that’s not your desire because of your needs or budget, there are many 2 bedroom options under either 1,000 or 1,500 square feet, which is often too small if you are wanting to have a more typical 4 bedroom design. With 2 bedrooms, however, it is definitely possible to limit the amount of space you have to less than 1,000 or 1,500 square feet.
The most popular option when it comes to ones featured on this page, are the single-storey ones, since you can still have a relatively narrow lot and still be able to place these homes on them, without having to build up. If you want a 2-storey option, then you can simply adjust the filter and we will only show you those homes instead. Single-storey options are very popular for families where retirement is starting to be a consideration, because they are a lot more accessible than if you start having to build stairs to move between the different floors. If you are approaching the age of retirement, and you are planning on staying in theirs for many years to come, thinking ahead and saving yourself from having to build another house in 10-20 years, can be hugely advantageous.
2 master suites
If you are building something to live in for years to come without the expectancy that more people will be living there in the future, you may still wish to build something that has 2 master suites which can easily accommodate the guests you may choose to invite over, as well as offering them some additional privacy not having to use a bathroom in the common area. When you are building a design with 2 master suites, that is when you may wish to consider having 3 bathrooms, as it is very nice to have a shared bathroom, too. This saves people in the common space from having to walk through someone’s bedroom to go to the bathroom. While it may not seem like a big deal right now, trust us when we say you will end up changing your mind when you have finally built your home. Thinking of these things beforehand will save you a bunch of trouble in the long term.
With garage or basement
There are many reasons why you may either want a garage or a basement, but there is no denying that either of these options will add a lot of functionality and features to your everyday life. You might even be tempted to add a double garage, and not just one. Whether you’re a handyman and the garage is the place that you go to work on your various projects or you simply like to park your car inside, getting a garage will definitely not be a decision that you regret.
While a 2 bedroom place offers certain aspects, it’s important to know there are more factors you should be considering, like whether or not you’re building something intended to be a beach house.
|Special factors to consider|
|Affordable||Double garage||Open concept|
Modern or not?
While you can affect the final feel of your home significantly from the materials that you choose when you are building your home, there are still some of our floor plans that are more geared towards the modern look that some may want, while other families may want something that is more traditional.
Do you want something advanced or not?
While you will find a bunch of very traditional styles on this page, you can also find ones that are a lot more advanced such as the H-shaped, L-shaped or U-shaped options. It is important that you also consider the potential limitations that the plot of land may have that you are building your future space.
Are you specifically looking for something that is a good investment?
In order to make sure that the one you’re building ends up being a good investment, there are a bunch of sound financial choices that you can make also, that include anything from the materials that you are using to the style of home that you want to go with. For instance, if you are building a duplex, you’re not just getting something that your own family can live in, but you can also rent out the other unit and recoup some of the money that was invested. We even have 2 bedroom triplexes, that can get you started on your journey to becoming a dedicated landlord with multiple properties.
From the information above, you can see that there is no one option that is perfect for all families, as different families will have different preferences, why we are continuously working on expanding our selection.
While 2 bedrooms are great for small families, it doesn’t mean you have to build a very traditional one. Here are some of the styles you can choose between for your new, 2 bedroom wonder:
|Styles to consider|
Whether you come to our platform looking for one of the smaller options that we offer on here, like the 2 bedroom options, or whether you come to our platform seeking out some of the bigger options that we have on here, our philosophy is the same. Our main priority is not that we want to sell you house plans, but our main focus is rather to make sure that we are helping provide value for you in the home building process. While selling the designs that we offer on this platform is ultimately what helps us be able to do what we do, our core belief is that if we provide enough value to you, a sufficiently high amount of people will also be interested in our home design products.
We believe that by offering value in the home building process, we are also building up a lot of karma in the community, and that we will end up being found by people that are also interested in our products. There are a lot of the resources that we have spent a lot of time developing, so that they would end up being beneficial for everyone who goes with an ambition of building their own dream. Although we may monetize some of our building resources with ads, we are receiving the bulk of our revenue from users that believe we added so much value to their process that they went on and bought one of the plans that we have made available on this site.
While we would definitely like for users to buy the products that we offer, we believe it is more important to focus on ensuring that every family understands what it is they are getting themselves into before we start trying to sell them a design for a house. As you can see from visiting the various categories we have available, the descriptions that we end up displaying are all rather long. This is consciously designed that way so that we can help you think through some of the processes that you might want to think through before you commit to a specific type.
While it is still possible to change your mind on the type of home that you want, when you are still early on in the process, it becomes increasingly hard the further into the process you are. Besides becoming increasingly costly over time, when you start changing important design considerations at later stages of the home building process, you are also adding significant amounts of delay to the process. There are some counties where you may not expect to wait a long time in order to have building licenses approved, but there are other counties where it takes significantly longer.
If you have already had all the drawings approved and you have started building the home, and you decide that you actually want an additional bedroom, it is likely that major delays will occur in the whole process. Even if you are able to have the blueprints modified so that you get a 3rd bedroom added, you will need to have the drawings adjusted by an architect. Chances are also that the changes are so substantial that your local building department requires that you submit another application for building permits.
We definitely understand that things may happen where you are forced to change your mind on the type that you want to build, but if it is at all possible, it is best that you don’t get that far into the process before you make sure that you have found the right one to build.
It’s also important to note that even though it may be possible to change your mind on the type of home, there are definitely costs that will arise that have the potential to substantially change the budget for the project. We sell the house design at the prices we sell them at because we are able to sell a significant amount of them, but when you are asking to have revisions made, it’s often not quite as simple as you imagined it would be. Revisions to existing drawings often mean changes to the roof and electrical systems, which may end up being very labor intensive, depending on how it is meant to be implemented.
Doing your own research
We do not want to discourage you from buying one of the house designs that our architects have spent a lot of time working on, but we do want to make sure that you make the right decision.
We want to make sure that you feel you are making the right decision no matter if you’re building one of the popular L-shaped houses, or whether you are building something a bit more distinctive. We always encourage all our users to get a good understanding of the local building climate that you are in to understand the entire process. Do you have a good understanding of how long it takes for building permits to be approved in the city that you are hoping to build in, and have you found out whether you will be applying for those permits yourself or will you get the help of a professional contractor who has been through the whole process before?
Have you made sure that you are considering homes that you believe will be easy to get the necessary permits for? Some communities may only allow you to build certain types, which is pretty common if you are building anything in a historical part of town, for instance.
