What Are Some of the Least Expensive Styles of Houses to Build?

Some of the least expensive styles of homes to build include a one-and-a-half-story Cape Cod, a two-story home or a home with less than 1,500 square feet. Homes that use less area of the lot are relatively less expensive to build.

Homes with a higher roof pitch that allows for a bonus room above the garage are also less expensive to build because the builder is building up instead of out. Ranch-style homes with an open floor plan can be less expensive and allow space to be used for rooms that would otherwise be consumed by hallways. Eliminating a fireplace from the home can also cut down on costs when building.
