Simple starter house plans for first-time house owners

Our starter house plans for first time house buyers offer models whose construction costs (builder grade finishes) can be below $200,000 (excluding land and taxes). The construction of a first house is an exciting event but from a monetary point of view, it can be frightening as well. Obviously, material selection and location will affect your build cost. It is best to make your house plan selection, and then get 3-4 quotes from different contractors specifying the same materials and finishes to be sure you are on budget. Then, enjoy the process of building your first house exactly as you want it!
