Some plans for an approximately 1,000-square foot home include a 996-square foot house that is still big enough for two garages and two bedrooms. It also has one full bath and one half bath, an eat-in kitchen, a laundry area and a living room.
Another cottage has 992 square feet, two bedrooms and a full bath. Though it doesn't have a garage, it does have an 8-foot wide covered porch, a laundry area, a dining area, an eat-in kitchen and a great room.
One house plan that is exactly 1,000 square feet has two bedrooms and one bathroom. It has no garage, but it has an unheated area for storage, a kitchen, a dining room and a living room that opens onto a covered deck above the storage area. Unusually, the kitchen, dining and living rooms are on the second floor, while the bedrooms and bathroom are on the first floor. This floor plan can be customized.
Another 1,000-square foot cottage has an open floor plan with a living room with 9-foot tall ceilings, a gas log fireplace and built-ins. It also has a full bath, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms (one of which features a jet tub), a kitchen, a breakfast area and a laundry room. There's also a patio and a front porch. Bedroom number two also has a large double-arched window.
