Side-by-side houses

This plan for a larger and a smaller house side by side joined by a passage creates the possibility of having a granny flat, office, garage or space that can be seasonally sub-let.

This plan could be either a detached or semi-detached house.

The house makes efficient use of the sun’s light and heat- the thin layout means that there will be windows on two sides of each room to maximise the natural light, it will face south and there will be no windows on the north side.
