Low cost house plans come in a variety of styles and configurations. Admittedly, it's sometimes hard to define what a "low cost house plan" is, as one person's definition of "low cost" could be different from someone else's. In general, you'll discover small house plans in this collection, as small home plans tend to be more affordable than larger designs for multiple reasons. For one, the smaller the house, the less time and materials it takes to build. Secondly, smaller houses typically require less electricity to maintain daily needs, like heating and cooling. That said, realize that a number of factors come into play when determining cost to build, such as location. For instance, you might be able to build a medium size house in the middle of Kansas for less than you could build a smaller home in Los Angeles. Likewise, you might be able to build a medium size house with basic materials for less than you could build a smaller house with high end materials.
