Challenges Of Building On Narrow Lots. The challenge that building on narrow lots poses is getting everything you want and need inside the house. It seems like you need to make sacrifices either inside the structure or in the yard to build on a small lot. By the time you factor in set‐backs and a garage, the amount of room left for living space can seem pitifully small.
Likewise, if you want to maximize the space in your narrow house plans, favor designs that make creative use of multiple stories. As an example, an architect designing plans for narrow lots may opt to locate a den and garage on the ground level. Main doors at the top of a set of stairs would lead to the second story, consisting of a great room complete with kitchen and living area. Finally, the third floor would contain bedrooms. There are many other possible multi‐story arrangements.
Government regulations. It's not uncommon to find regulated residences. The regulations limit you on the size and type of house that you can construct in an area. The cool thing is that many architects will let you know of any regulations in the area. If the professional is unsure of the regulations, it's upon you to research and find out.
The design concept of the 'golden triangle' is a natural fit with a U shape: when designing your space, keep your fridge, cooker and⁄or hob and sink between 120cm and 270cm away from each other. This will make for a practical, time‐efficient and safe use of your space, something that is harder to achieve in longer, L‐shaped or galley kitchens, for example. Ideally your U‐shaped kitchen will have a window at the 'U' end. This makes a great spot for the sink, allowing you to look out over your garden while you wash up without having wall units overhead.
