You don’t need a large home to live large! Whether you’re downsizing, retiring, or just looking for a home of your own, there are many beautiful prefab home options for couples. And the best part is that the models below are all 100% customizable — walls, floors, stairways, doors, windows, kitchens, bathrooms, closets, lights, handles… everything!
Here are five modest, single-story prefab floorplans that are ideal for couples. With our expert designers’ help, you can further customize them to fit your needs!
But First: What Exactly Is a Prefab Home?
Prefabricated homes are homes made from components (called modules) manufactured in a factory and assembled on site. Prefab homes can be built quickly without any construction mess in nearly any location. We’ve even placed prefab homes on islands!
One of the most amazing things about Royal Homes is the fact that they look exactly like a home built on-site. No one will know it’s a prefab unless you tell them!
You can choose from our library of over 40 prefab home models, including a variety of modest single-story bungalows. They’re perfect for couples looking to downsize without sacrificing the comfortable life that they have worked hard for!
Choosing a Modest One-Story Prefab Option for Couples
For many of us, it’s been ingrained all our lives that buying a bigger home is always the better. But recently, there has been a positive shift in the way many people view and buy homes:
It’s not about the size of the home as long as it suits your lifestyle and the things that make up your life!
Even so, as a couple, you have a lot to think about beyond square footage when it comes to choosing a prefab home model for your custom home. Things like:
- While you’re looking for something modest, you must have a place where you can both live comfortably and have privacy from one another.
- A home should be designed and built for both of you and your needs, not just for one of you.
- There should be space in the house for the people who are integral to your life: friends, relatives, grown-up children, and grandchildren.
With that in mind, here are five modest prefab homes we’ve seen couples fall in love with, whether as a cottage, vacation home, or lifelong home.
1. The Royal Q-M1
- 1,862 sq.ft.
- 3 beds
- 2.5 baths
Royal Q-M1, part of our exclusive Q-Series, is a modern home in every sense. It is designed to let you live comfortably, stylishly and securely with materials and quality miles above industry standards!
Clean and spacious, this model provides open communication, a comfortable line of sight, and efficient use of space. The Q-M1’s floor to ceiling windows let you enjoy both the outside and the inside of your home. The large, open-concept kitchen and dining area, tied together by an elegant wood-burning fireplace, are an entertainer’s dream!
One of the bedrooms in the Q-M1 could be converted into an office, home gym, or hobby room. The possibilities are endless!
2. The Belmont
- 1,091 sq.ft.
- 2 beds
- 1 baths
Why overcomplicate? An understated bungalow with a spacious interior that can be customized to your heart’s content, the Belmont is simple living at its best. This charming two bedroom home has everything you need in one well-designed space!
Despite its modest square footage, you’ll be surprised at how spacious the kitchen is and the ample counter space. The well-placed centre island is just right for a few chatty friends to catch up on things while preparing lunch.
Like the floorplan, but need more space? You can add another bedroom. The Belmont, like all our models, can be fully customized!
3. The Jasper
- 1,104 sq.ft.
- 2 beds
- 1 baths
Interested in simplifying without losing space? The Jasper uses a smart, open-concept floorplan to maximize and enhance your living space.
An island separates the cooking area from the conversation area in the kitchen without blocking conversation. The spacious living room and dining area can be used for both informal family gatherings and formal dinners.
Don’t let downsizing make you ditch your shoe collection! You’ll love the walk-in closet in the primary suite. In fact, all of our models can have walk-in closets if you so desire, and the size can be customized.
Whether you choose carpet or hardwood, vinyl or ceramic, you can make the Jasper your very own when you choose from the many Royal Home options. You could have us install in-floor heating for extra warmth on those cold winter days!
4. The Hurondale
- 1,334 sq.ft.
- 3 beds
- 2 baths
A sensible and lovely design mix in perfect harmony, the Hurondale is a simple home, perfect for early retirement or escape to cottage country.
With one and a half baths, three bedrooms, and a spacious kitchen, island, and dining area, this home is perfect for entertaining. Add a luxury countertop, and stainless steel appliances and finish off the kitchen with under cabinet lighting, and pot lights!
The Hurondale is modest enough to make cleaning and maintenance easy, but large enough to accommodate a lot of guests. It’s also easy to add extra space to the Hurondale if you need it, because as with all our models, it’s fully customizable!
5. The Bluewater
- 1,494 sq.ft.
- 3 beds
- 2 baths
Nature lovers, you’ve come to the right place. You have access to the outdoors all the time with the Bluewater’s panoramic windows! You can even have a porch that stretches across the entire front of your house, extending your living space outside.
Inside, the bungalow’s galley kitchen is cozy and functional. The dining area opens onto the porch, so you can relax or entertain while enjoying the sunlight and moonlight.
The Bluewater has three bedrooms that can accommodate both guests and family members who come to visit. And when you’re alone, you and your partner can get cozy under the primary bedroom’s romantic skylight.
