Even if there may be small house options under 1,000 sq ft that may work for some families, it may just not be the right option for you.

2,500 sq ft
You’ve reached a point in your life where 800, 1,200, 1,400, or even 1,800 square feet designs just don’t do the job for you anymore, and you’re starting to look in the size range that is bigger than what you would consider a medium sized option – yes, you have made it to the page specifically for 2,500 sq ft designs.
This is the size you get when your family may start growing significantly, or when you simply desire more space because you’ve always had a personal dream of yours to install a small home gym.
It’s also still a size that has a lot of potential to sell afterwards without you having to see it just sit on the market for months and months without anything happening.
It’s a size that comfortably fits, 4, 5 and maybe even 6 bedrooms in it, and may be the reason why you do not find it necessary to either get a Mother-in-law suite or an additional guest house.
And due to its popularity, it is still a size range that attracts a lot of attention among architects, why your options are as many as they are.
Keep browsing and we’re sure you’ll find something that fits your needs.
Mother-In-Law, Granny Pods, Spaces For In-laws
Mother-in-law houses have a lot in common with those offering guest houses. While a guest house is an indication of something temporary, if you are in fact building something with a mother-in-law option available, you are doing it because you are planning for her to be using it, if not all the time, at least significantly more than guests would.
For an option made for someone who will be staying there more permanently, you may wish to have the option of adding a small kitchen to the space, which would give them the possibility to cook food without having to enter the main house all the time. For a more permanent option, you may simply find that a bonus room won’t adequately provide the facilities needed.
We have many different mother-in-law, in-law suites or granny pods houses for you to choose from so simply browse the selection, use the filters, and order when you are ready, or contact us with questions.
Usually comprising of only a single-storey, bungalows are smaller and usually no bigger than 1,800 square feet, although many of them fall smaller than 1,400 square feet, too. When a second story is added, this is built into the roof, why the top floor may be of limited functionality.
Being longer than they’re wide, these are perfect for homeowners that are working with a narrow lot and don’t wish to put a duplex on it. While their build is simple, they still manage to maintain a charm similar to that of Craftsman houses, and their common, wide front porches can be admired from the street. When you’re looking for something that isn’t going to break the bank, this may very well be a valid option, and still getting a lot of use out of the functionality you’re getting.
When you enter, you may find low-slung roof and the forgotten art of exposed ridge beams. They also commonly lend inspiration from the Victorian style.

We even have plans that are designed to look like a tower, and we’re very aware that if you’re building a mountain retreat, chances are that you don’t have an entirely flat surface to build on, why you’ll be interested in our sloped lot options.
Many of our users like the traditional chalet, cabin or cottage styles, too, why if you haven’t found your dream home on this very page we encourage you to visit those and see if you have any luck there.
Ranch style houses are an architectural style with a long facade, and an open layout, unlike that of less traditional style, such as the H-shape or the U-shape, while you can find homes with this type of layout. With their proximity to the ground, these types are significantly less common along the coast or any other place that is more likely to flood, where they may be required to be built on stilts.
They have a lot of inspiration from the American Western period, and contain significantly more open floor space than was previously the case. These types were especially popular between the 40s and 70s, but are still popular in today’s construction industry.
See a two-story home? This is not considered a ranch style, as these, have just a single story. They additionally commonly have the living areas constructed in a matter so as that they’re separated from where you would go to sleep.
Browse this page in order to find a variety of the many ranch style options listed on our site, and feel free to reach out should you have any questions or anything that you need help with.
While some factors may be pretty straight forward when considering a design, here are some of the less obvious ones for your 2,200 square foot home.
|Special factors to consider|
|Under 100k to build||With a view||Daylight basement|
|Hillside||With mother-in-law suite||Duplex|
While resembling a round one, this style isn’t quite as expensive to build due to its 6 flat surfaces (and therefore 8 corners), but it is also not the one you necessarily build when your main focus is to save money. You are still looking to make a statement, and this definitely achieves it.
When you start looking, you will also find that some designs, while resembling octagon ones, may not in fact be true octagons, as they may have additions to them, resembling the angled garage, but they’re still an underappreciated thing of beauty in a world where cheap construction dominates.
How ambitious you are with your construction will in many instances depend on how much money you are ready to spend on the construction, but Octagon designs are definitely a thing that can provide amazing views over various types of scenery, whether building on stilts is necessary or not.
With a pool
When you are building your dream, what would make it even more so a dream than also adding a place where you can take a swim as you return from a long day at work? We can’t think of anything more relaxing than actually building one that has a pool by it also, which is another great reason to invite both friends and family over, and spend time outside.
If you have a wish to get in better shape, then the pool option may just be what you are looking for. The only thing your dream home needs is a nice place to relax. With 2,200 square feet design, this just seems like a natural addition. That’s right – you don’t need to build a mansion to also get that pool you always wanted.
1, 2 or 3 floors?
With this amount of space, you can suddenly start exploring a bunch of options that aren’t very likely for smaller ones, like the idea of building a taller home with several floors. Whereas a 1,000 square foot design may be perfect for that single-story, with twice the amount of space, you can easily make it a 2-story instead, and it is also the size where you could make it a 3-story home if you really want to, perhaps adding a balcony at the top.
Do you want a more modern design
Since this size is as popular with families as it is, it is no wonder that it is also a type that we have so many different styles available in, including both the modern options, or you can go with the classic ranch look instead, if that suits you better.
A basement, garage or attic?
Sometimes there is certain functionality that you may want, but you don’t necessarily want to have it within the main living area of your home. This could be a place where you hang out on weekends and engage various projects, which is a time when you could find yourself really appreciating the many aspects of having a double garage with lots of space. Perhaps you want a collection of good wine bottles that you can keep for many years to come, where a basement would be more convenient given the naturally cooler temperature that it will hold without a lot of air conditioning.. Perhaps you want a space that could be remodeled at a later point, and it is really an attic that would be good for you.
The number of bedrooms you need depends on your family, but our recommendation for one of this size is to go with 4 bedrooms, which fits nicely.
A great option for your average family
Across the world, the average family in developed countries is 2 parents with 2 kids. One of the most common types for an average family like that are in fact the ones that can be found on this specific page. It doesn’t provide so much space that you feel you’re getting lost within your own home, but it still allows each of your kids to have their own bedroom, and still feel like the house has the size that it needs. Besides perhaps wanting that all kids are able to have their own bedrooms, you might even be able to squeeze an additional room in there.
If you have a narrow plot of land, you may have to build it several floors high in order to get this amount of space, but you will end up with a happy medium that you won’t get if you choose one of the options that is a lot smaller. While it may be tempting to choose a type of house that is on the smaller side, because it means there will be less maintenance involved in the process, it also means that you won’t have much wiggle room if suddenly your preferences change. Since you have chosen to build from the ground up, now is the time to actually get it right.
If you have a big plot of land, you can also choose to make it a single floor home. Alternatively we have found an increasing amount of interest in the various modern styles that we have made available on this site.
The benefit from building something that may be slightly bigger than what you necessarily thought you need is that it leaves a lot more room for you changing your mind down the line. If you have the additional space, you won’t have to seek out building a new house just because you ended up having another baby. It’s always a great idea to have an extra bedroom, whether you’re simply planning on using it for the guests that you consider hosting, or in the case your family ends up growing.
One that was already on the small side will quickly start causing tensions in the family. People will need to use the bathroom at the same times of the day, and you risk being late as you didn’t just include a second bathroom in the beginning. If you are wishing to avoid some of the common problems that arise from building a home that is too small, while still getting a lot of value for your money, check out the various options on this page. If you have changed your mind, and you would rather build something that is either significantly bigger or significantly smaller, we also have dedicated pages for those options that you can check out.
If you found your perfect design on this page, but there are small alterations that you would like to have done to the design, the good thing is that it is really likely that we are able to help you make those changes without it costing you too much. However, if you find a design where you want to change the layout of it, including moving rooms and bathrooms, such alterations will cost you more.
Great – you have chosen that you want to build a 2,200 square foot home, however, have you chosen its style and features yet? Our 2,200 square foot options have many different shapes and forms, including the styles outlined below.

Some of our recommendations
It’s great to see that you have managed to make it this far on the page! That probably also means that you have managed to check out some of the different designs we have available on the site, and you may even have started bookmarking some of your favorites. Perhaps you have started talking with a contractor and you’re starting to get an idea of how much it will cost you to starting the construction work. In fact, the page you have landed on features some of the absolute most popular designs we have available on the site.
Choosing to build a luxurious blueprint isn’t necessarily the ideal situation for everyone. The ones that you find on this specific page are in popular demand, and that is good for a multitude of reasons. Bigger isn’t always better, and that is especially the case when it comes to the construction. While some families may desire to have a big and unique palace, those definitely aren’t for everyone.
There are a lot of reasons why you may want to choose a design that comfortably covers your needs, while still not being too big, as are the ones we feature on this page. While there is often a tendency to admire bigger things, they come with certain setbacks. For one, building a bigger one is more expensive than it is to build a smaller one, assuming the only thing you are going to change is the size. Of course, if you build a smaller one that is more luxurious, you can also end up spending a lot of money in the process. However, if the only difference is that you previously started out with the idea that you were going to build a bigger one, and you have now settled for something more modest, you will save money in the process.
Besides saving money on construction, you are also bound to save both time and money when it comes to the maintenance of your future residence. Bigger ones require more maintenance of all kinds. While you may not be in the house when the time comes to replace the roof next time, all the various parts of the home will deteriorate. You may even need a bigger and more expensive air conditioning system if you’re building bigger.
Besides the maintenance, building a bigger one also comes with the additional cost that you get to spend on heating and cooling. Although the overall size isn’t the only thing contributing to the electrical bill that you will get every month, it is a big part of it. While you will still want to build a home that has a size that comfortably fits the lifestyle that you want, there’s no reason why you should be throwing money away simply because you want to build a bigger home.
Lastly, one of the most important reasons why the homes on this page should appeal to you is because they will also be significantly easier to sell when you want to sell in the future. Since most families are of average size, that is also where the largest pool of buyers are. When you have spent more money on the construction, you are probably also looking to recoup as much of that money as possible when the time comes around to sell it. If yours is significantly bigger than all the other ones in the neighborhood, you are more likely to get a bid that is comparable to the bid that all your neighbors would get. However, if you live in an area that generally has a lot of big houses, you may be leaving money on the table if you are building one that is significantly smaller than all the others.
