Layouts that work for small modular houses include Cape Cod-style homes and ranch homes. Not every style is appropriate for small homes, as Modular Homeowners points out. Ranch homes are among the most flexible styles, since their layouts accommodate small homes of less than 100 square feet as well as large homes of 4,000 square feet and up.

Cape Cod modular homes also feature attic space under the steeply sloped roof.

The Homestore provides floor plans and layouts for modular homes of all sizes, including homes with less than 1,000 square feet. All plans come with exterior elevations, and the company can change the exterior look of each plan. Customers can also design their own home layouts, according to the Homestore. The company either turns a customer's design into a custom-designed layout or finds similar layouts among its existing inventory of floor plans.Learn more about Finding a Home
