Narrow Lot Series

This new series of narrow lot designs is planned to address a 25' wide "infill lot" or a smaller lot in a new subdivision. Most older urban communities were based on a grid of long and narrow lots. The redevelopment of existing neighborhoods is an important aspect in sustainable home construction. The high cost of developing and servicing new suburban subdivisions is making some inner city lots very attractive. Usually these established areas feature beautiful canopies of mature street trees, close proximity to shopping and parks, and often a historical personal connection for families. These parcels usually feature rear lane access for the garage and parking. Many new subdivisions are offering smaller lots as a solution to high cost of land and home ownership. It is important to check with your municipality building department to confirm what size of home your lot will accommodate.

The exteriors of these plans have been carefully detailed to offer the style and character of an older neighborhood, with the use of covered verandas, Craftsman-styled brackets and columns, and window configurations common to that period. Inside, the plans feature bright open layouts, offering spacious foyers at the front door, and efficient mudrooms at the back. Many have access for a rear deck.

Windows on side walls of these homes have been designed to suit most local zoning requirements. The construction of these side walls have been detailed to offer improved fire resistance as well.
