I started another thread about finding a floor plan and I had to post this plan because I just love it. Great design, great use of space. This kind of design is what I am looking for, smart and cost effective. Dumb question perhaps, but how many square feet is this house?

Here is a link that might be useful: love it

Page one of that article states that the designers were limited to 1500 sq ft.

Thanks! Sorry, I didn't realize the link sent me to page two. Duh!

The two story floor plan looks like 3200 sq ft to me, not including three garage or porch.

Wait a minute...

Actually, maybe slightly under 3000. Too late at night and can't see enough on my phone to give you a certain answer. Hopefully someone else can correct me.

Which of the 4 houses are you referring to?

RE: this is great design!

If it is the house on page 2, which is where the link takes me, I come up with approximately 2912 sq ft. Page 1 shows the sq ft at 1554 and page 3 looks like around 1536 sq ft. There is just no way that the house on page 2 is a 1500 sq ft house. You can tell by the scale of the furnishings, etc. that each square has to be close to 2' x 2'.

Kind of a confusing article, the first page does say 1500 sq ft but I agree there is no way that house can be that size.

oops sorry yes page 2

yes sorry the house on page 2 (Robert Hidey design)

RE: this is great design!

If each square is 2' x 2', I would say each floor is 1316 sqft, for a total of 2632 interior sqft and the garage is 20' x 22'. Those are based off 2' squares which is close to the scale, but could slightly be off. With exterior sq ft, I think 2912 is closer. Without actual dimensions, it is all just an estimate, but I would feel comfortable calling this house 2600 - 2900 plus 450 for a garage. (Which by the way is a pretty small garage for truly fitting 2 cars and having an access door on the side.
