Do You Need A 1, 1.5, or 2 Story Home?  

One of the most important questions you will have to answer when you are planning a custom home is how much house do you actually need? What best suits your lifestyle: a 1, 1.5, or 2 story home?

1 Story Homes

A lot of people enjoy 1 story homes because everything you need is located on the one floor, which makes it an easily navigated home for all stages of life. With no stairs to climb up and down, this kind of home can be a long-term option as you age. This type of home is also a lot easier to maintain because of its floor plan and size.

1.5 Story Homes

What separates a 1.5 story home from a 1 story home is there is a partial second floor added, which gives you a little bit more space to work with. This is the perfect meeting in the middle design option for those who may need more space than a 1 story home can offer but are unsure if a 2 story home is just too much house for them. This style of home is perfect for spending many, many years in. These homes usually have much higher ceilings in the common areas and can provide perks like a 2nd story balcony.

2 Story Homes

These are larger homes that have a lot of extra space for those with larger families, or who plan on having lots of guests. A lot of 2 story homes come with 3-4 bedrooms and baths, as well as attached garages. This is a lot of space for those who need it, which also comes with enough space to give a clear divide between the living spaces of the home and the hosting areas.
