2 Story Home

A two story home is the most economical as it relates to the cost per square foot. You have one roof but two stories of living space and if you have a basement it’s actually three. This extra space doesn’t need a larger lot, it just needs additional side walls.

Along with being economical, two story homes are favorites for young families. Parents are on the same floor as their young children. This makes it easy to quickly get to a babies room or easy for a two-year old to run in and jump into your bed after a bad dream.

A two story home is a large because of all the space it includes. The roof line is typically simple due to the fact that both sides of the house are typically the same height. The typical height of a two story home is 18-20 feet tall.

1.5 Story Home

A one and a half story home has the master bedroom on the main floor and all the other bedrooms on the second floor. As the kids go from tricyles and stuffed toys to X-Box and iPhones you might want them on a different floor. A one and a half story lets you remain on the main floor while the kids take over the second floor. A little distance keeps the noise level down. 

The look of a story and a half is a little more interesting in that one side of the house has a lower roof and the other side is the height of a two story. Instead of two stories across the entire length of the house only half to three forths of the house has a second floor.

Reverse 1.5 Story Home

A reverse story and a half is a fairly new home style. Like a story and a half it has the master bedroom on the main floor. Instead of having the other bedrooms on the second floor, the additional bedrooms in a reverse story and a half are in the basement.


In general, these home designs are very popular with those that have older children that are out of the house. The parents can live on the main floor but when their children come to visit there’s plenty of space for them in the finished basement. 

A reverse story and a half is a little more economical. Anytime you have living space in the basement, you save money. Money that would have be spent on siding, gutters, insulation, etc. is not needed when you can take advantage of the space that’s already part of your house.

The looks of a reverse story and a half shows a little smaller footprint because the only thing above the front yard is the Master bedroom, kitchen, family room and usually a dinning room. In this case, the gararge looks almost as large as the house. Don’t think that the smaller footprint on top means you’re loosing space. The basement is usually full of 2-3 bedrooms, an additional family/game room, kitchenett and a large storage area.

One Story Home

For those interested in a starter home or just something more economical, we have one story homes. These are ranch plans with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. These might be small but they are big when it comes to the inside appeal. These homes are decked out in everyway. You will not be giving up any of the luxuries with our one story homes.
