Floorplans.com and COOLhouseplans.com have a combined total of nearly 1,700 floor plans for homes under 1,300 square feet with two bedrooms. The designs are for one- and two-story homes, and they are customizable to include the features a buyer seeks, such as a garage or porch.
Among the plans on Floorplans.com and COOLhouseplans.com, the smallest homes measure approximately 500 square feet. Some plans are for garages with two-bedroom apartments over them, but many plans are for homes in the cottage or bungalow style, with two bedrooms and one bathroom. These homes tend to have one centrally located bathroom for guest and resident use, according to COOLhouseplans.com designs. Bungalows date to the 1900s to 1930s in the United States and are notable for their open floor plans and access to exterior spaces, according to Antique Home Style.
Homes of this size don't have room for a separate dining room, and many combine the living room and kitchen into one larger entertainment space, according to Floorplans.com designs. Smaller homes usually open into living areas with bedrooms located in the rear of a single story. Porches and low pitched roofs are among the exterior features common to bungalows, according to Wentworth Design. Exterior materials vary widely by geography. In Chicago, brick is common, while California bungalows are often stucco sided, according to Antique Home Style.
