Creating a Home in the Modern World With a Basic 20×45 Ft Simple House Design

The first concept I am going to share with you is a simple house design that will cost you less than $20k. This house will have two bedrooms, one bath and two decks. The first plan would be perfect for someone that has just purchased their first home. The second plan would be great for someone who already has a lot of furniture and needs to downsize.

Why am I telling you this? Because if you are like me and have a small yard and want a simple home that will have less maintenance then this plan is for you. I have a nice two-acre property that I bought six years ago and still haven’t had to do any gardening on it. It’s a beautiful wooded site and the house sits about five hundred feet above sea level. My wife uses her garden every day to grow all kinds of flowers and vegetables. We live about an hour from the closest big city, so I don’t have to go out to the city all the time.

If you are looking to relocate or buy your first home why not build yourself instead of buying the readymade plans that are on offer in most Home Depot and other big box stores? Building your own home is a lot of fun and can also save you a lot of money. You will only have to buy the materials once and will have a simple design that is easy to do.

When you build your own simple house design first you need to decide where you are going to build it. Do you live in an urban area where there are plenty of public transportation services such as buses and rail lines? Then you will have to include these details in your design. Are you looking for a serene rural view? Then you will probably need to include more trees to block sunlight. The best thing about building your own house from readymade designs is that you can change them as you wish but I have found that most of the designs included with readymade plans are very simple and don’t do much justice when it comes to giving you a design that you will enjoy living in.

The next item in your design is the location of your house. You will need to determine how many people will be able to move into your new home so you can decide where you want to build it. This might include your garden, the size of your garden and where you want to locate your patio or deck. All of this needs to be included in your design.

Next you will want to add a water feature if you want to use a garden in your design. This could be a waterfall, fountain or pond. The type of water feature you choose will depend on your personal preference and garden style. When it comes to a simple house design you might want to use something that is easy to maintain like a birdbath and pump so that you can easily keep the water in your garden and it won’t cause problems.

Another very important part of your simple house design is the type of roof that you use. Your roof will not only be used to cover your windows and doors but also to keep the heat out of your home during the winter. There are many different types of roofs you can use for your house. One thing you will want to avoid is using a low-sloped roof as it will trap the rain and snow in your home and cause it to be too wet and waterlogged. A proper roof will slope towards the center of your garden and will be almost level.

Lastly you will want to add some landscaping to your simple house design. This can be simply flowers or fruit trees to give your garden a more natural feel. Adding a swimming pool will give you more space in your garden and it will make your home look even nicer from the outside.
