I think that's about the length of a single wide mobile home. Not sure how wide they are but I'm guessing 12'. So if your steel frame house was 12' long by 75' wide it would be big enough for a few bedrooms and some reasonable space.

To fit four people you need a frame that is 12' wide by 6' long by 2' thick. That's also called a coffin. I hear they work GREAT for sleeping. Analyze your living spaces. Do four people spend all their time in the living room? How much space does each individual use? Two double recliners would work great in that case.
A well planned house pays dividends.

Thanks, think I've got a pretty good idea of what I need now.
How many rooms do you need
1 Living Room
1 Mech/Laundry Room
I am seeing 8 room (the mechroom and bathroom is just a 12ft room cut in two both at 6ft).
The dining room is optional and maybe just 2 bedroom are needed So really only 4 rooms and two half rooms (bathroom/mechroom) for a total of 5.
I like to think of each room as 12ft by 12ft boxes.
You could just have all the rooms layed out linearly all side by side with a 3ft hallway infront of all the rooms connecting them, so the structure could be 75ft by 15ft.
Maybe 75 by 16 if you factoring wall thickness
Iterations are fine, we don't have to be perfect
