The Next Big Thing: Small Houses!
As Millennials (people born between 1981-1997) begin to enter the housing market as first time buyers, smaller houses have proven to be in demand. Millennials want an affordable home that is easy to take care of without sacrificing thoughtful design providing ample storage and entertaining areas.
Houses that Millennials search for are less than 2,500 sq. ft. and do not have the traditional design of a 2-story foyer of family rooms. Open floor plans, and house plans that offer a great area for outdoor living are preferred by the majority.
Through studies, the NAHB ( https://nahbnow.com/2015/01/3072/) found out that although Millennials enjoy an open floor plan, they still required a separate, closed-off area designated for laundry! These Archival Designs house plans are just what the Millennials are asking for!
