Ocotillo Plans for 560 sq. ft. Single Level Home


These small house plans would be perfect for anyone reaching retirement age. The single-level floor plan features a studio-style layout with the bedroom and living room dominating the space. There’s a comfortable L-shaped kitchen, a couple of closets, and a bathroom with a walk-in shower.

At 560 square feet, it’s just a bit more spacious than a “tiny home” and the added carport makes getting indoors in inclement weather that much easier.  Add a jacuzzi underneath the outside overhang! The plans for this are sold by The Small House Catalog.

    My first apartment was a studio that had a very similar layout to the floorplan shown here. The bathroom of my studio was longer in length and contained the washer/dryer. My studio had a smaller sleeping alcove which provided space for a walk-in closet. In the plan shown here, you could add a wall and make the bedroom area separate. The table could also be moved closer to the kitchen area to allow for a more proper entry way. I think this plan is a choppy version of some others I have seen.

      Well, there’s just always trade offs and design choices are often based on different priorities. For example, this layout makes the table a multi-use space. Placement of the Washer/Dryer means the table can be used for sorting of cloths. Proximity to the entrance means it’s a convenient drop off for groceries, which in turn also means it’s easily used for kitchen tasks, as well as a work table.

      However, all of that wouldn’t be the case if the table was moved and if the Washer/Dryer was in the bathroom.

      While a studio is by definition a self-contained living unit that consist of a bedroom, living room, and kitchen all in a single open space. So it would no longer be a studio if you separate the bedroom, but rather it’ll become a one bedroom home instead.

      The wall would also take a bit of the space away and moving the table also means taking some space away from the main living room area. Among other things that would be effected…

      However, the nice thing about plans is you’re free to tweak and change them and optimize it for what you want to end up with, as you can consider the plans just the starting point. While there is a catalog of such plans. So something else may be a closer match and require less changes…

    This is a beautiful small home.
    I have lived where the laundry was not separate from the main area. It was a pain, that is for sure. There is never a way to keep the area separate from the living area. There is always a mess including the lint from the dryer that covers everything, no place to use as a folding area and just all the noise from doing the laundry. I wouldn’t want to use the dining room table to fold clothes. More of a mess, for me. I need the laundry area in its own room. Maybe the utility room could be added to the washer/dryer area? All nicely hidden behind a closed door? Maybe the plans would have to increase in size to 600 sq’ for the enclosed laundry. It would be worth the extra size.
    Love the windows, just breath taking.
    I love the walk in shower and the rest of the bathroom. Very nice. As we get older, thinking about things like an accessible shower is vital.
    Another thing I would want is an enclosed bedroom. When two people are retired, there are times when both of us would want privacy. Closing the door would work.
    I love the bookcase in the living room. We are both avid readers so that would help out!
    And, how on earth did we ever get along without mini splits? Love those.
    This is a beautiful house, a few little tweaks and it works for us!
