Affordable Suburban Home Plans

The Nelsons chose their new home’s design from Maple Timber Frame’s book of house plans.

Although it’s strongly based on the standard design, a few minor tweaks were made to suit the family, such as moving windows and altering the ceiling height to create space for a habitable loft.

Taking this route – rather than opting for a bespoke design – helped the family stick to a modest build cost of just £160,000 (£800 per square metre).
