The joined-up house is efficient in its use of a long, thin plot. This reduces the infrastructure costs and makes the house more affordable.

The plan includes a generous hallway, kitchen facing the street from which you can watch children play and a more private sitting room with big windows facing onto the garden. You will be able to enjoy the views and the sun from the upstairs windows.

The front door will lead straight onto the street, perhaps with a porch and a small garden. There will also be a back door leading into the garden, with space for parking and a garage, shed or office studio. A lane at the back will provide access for vehicles.
