Smaller homes are more affordable to build and maintain than larger houses design. This house very inspirated for small house plans for a couple and two their daughters in Guadalajara, Mexico is one of those houses. Built around central courtyard are quite common. The basement plans features garage, a game room, and stairway which connects the whole house, the ground floor the kitchen, dinging room and family room. A modern home’s design extends to the furnishings and layout. Multipurpose pieces function well in open floor plans or loft-style buildings. A covered porch, deck or patio allows gatherings to spill out from the home and into the garden, especially if you furnish outdoor areas with cushions, lighting, a fire pit and chairs.
