Custom Home Floor Plan Ideas for First-Time Home Buyers

Here at Wayne Homes, we happen to think that every homeowner deserves the home of their dreams whether it’s your first home or your last. That’s why no two homes that we build are ever exactly the same. Every custom home design is created specifically for the family that lives there.

It’s ridiculously easy, surprisingly affordable, and much more fun than you ever thought owning a home could be.

We have an entire team of experts to walk you through each step of choosing a floor plan, financing, selecting the right land, customization, and the building process. Every Wayne Home also includes a two-year warranty so you won’t have any surprises after you move in. This means that you can feel more confident about buying your first home than many people feel when buying their third or fourth home.

Think the cost of a custom home is out of reach for your budget? Of the 40 floor plans that we offer, 24 are priced under $150,000 (varies per county, plus the cost of land). Each home can be customized just the way you want it based on your lifestyle and your budget. Here are just a few floor plan ideas for first-time home buyers:

Cape Cod Charm


Our Cape Cod-inspired Somerville plan is filled with charm inside and out, but it has a practical side too. This home features a main level laundry room and Master Suite with walk-in closet. Two spacious upstairs bedrooms provide the perfect flexibility for first-time home buyers: use the bedrooms as an office and guest room today, and perhaps a nursery and play room in the future.

Single Level Starter Home


Everything you want, all on one floor. Our Camden is a comfortably-sized 1,673 square foot home that features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a wide open kitchen and Great Room. And who says your first home can’t have a bit of luxury? The Camden includes a Master Suite with a huge walk-in closet that will make you want to say goodbye to cramped apartment living for good.

Simple, Smart, with Plenty of Storage


The 1,483 square feet the 3-bedroom, 2-bath Bradford is one of our smallest and most affordable custom home floor plans, but don’t be fooled: it has plenty of space where it counts. There’s a walk-in closet in every bedroom, an oversized corner coat closet (perfect for storing winter gear), a spacious laundry room, and a kitchen with lots of cabinet space and a reach-in pantry. With the Bradford, you can not only fire your landlord but clear out your storage space, too.
