One Story Floor Plans

One story homes are convenient and economical, as a more simple structural design reduces building material costs. They are also more eco-friendly because it takes less energy to heat and cool, as energy does not dissipate throughout a second level. Because they are well suited to Univeral Design, one story homes will most likely increase in popularity as the aging population grows in the next decade. The number of stairs is minimized, making it easier to navigate the home on foot or in a wheelchair, and one level makes for easier upkeep.

Although one story plans can be compact, square footage does not have to be minimal. Ranch homes can be rambling on a wide lot, as can Mediterranean homes that feature courtyards and plenty of outdoor living space. Styles better suited to a smaller one story home are Cape Cod, Cottage and Bungalow, which are quaint and cozy with distinct architectural details. One story homes often need to be constructed on a larger lot, as it takes more land to build out rather than up, but this could be the perfect opportunity to maximize outdoor living space. Add a large patio at the rear, or possibly a pool to entertain children and guests.
