t’s a decision that every family buying a new home has to make, should you buy a single level home or one with multiple levels? There are many advantages to single level living including:
Perfect for all ages: Whether you are a sunny senior or a young family with small children, single level living allows freedom of movement yet easy access for help and supervision. Outside maintenance is also simpler to keep up since you don’t have to hire someone to do simple maintenance. With a single story home plan, you’ll be able to access all areas of your home with a ladder—a definite advantage.
Increased Energy Efficiency: It’s easier to heat a single story house plan. Most modern single story house plans feature a central shared living area, surrounded by more private rooms such as bedrooms and offices. Heated and cooled air naturally flows through such a design. In contrast, multiple story house plans require more complex (and more costly) HVAC systems.
Open Floor Plans: Single story house plans tend to include a generous communal area, sometimes called the “Family Triangle” of living room, dining room, and kitchen. While older homes boxed each of these rooms off with walls, modern single story home plans are often designed to merge these three areas into one large, open space. Vaulted ceilings and expansive windows are often prioritized here, so as to create a comfortable and beautiful area where the whole family will naturally want to congregate.
Easy to Expand Living Space:Assuming you have a large enough lot, it’s fairly easy to add a deck, sunroom, or patio to a single story home plan. In contrast, a two-story home will require structural analysis and careful planning for expansion. The ease of expanding outdoor living areas translates to a strong indoor/outdoor connection in many single story home plans.
Without the structural demands of upper stories, designers often have more freedom to choose taller ceilings and pencil in more skylights and windows. The contemporary single story home can feel airy and spacious, if you choose the right design.
