Cost-Efficient Home Designs for Affordable Construction

The cost of constructing a home is affected by a number of factors – building materials, labor markets and design amenities, to name just a few. Among the most influential aspects of a home’s price tag, is the “cost efficiency” of its design. Square footage, of course, affects the overall cost, but as homebuilders are well aware, the cost efficiency of a home’s design can play a significant role, no matter the size. For example, the fewer the corners in a foundation wall, the less expensive it is to build. The same holds true for roofs. A simple front-to-back gable roof is less expensive to build than a complex multiple-pitch hip roof. The list goes on and on throughout construction. This collection of Cost-Efficient Home Designs offers a tasteful selection of plans that, comparatively speaking, would cost less to build than many other homes of the same square footage, built with similar materials. All of this, of course, is offered without sacrificing thoughtful floor plans or stylish curb appeal.
