1.5 story house plans (1 ½ story), combining ample living space with classic roofing and timeless design, are the perfect choice for anyone looking to create an amazing home without breaking the bank.

1.5 story house plans (1 ½ story), combining ample living space with classic roofing and timeless design, are the perfect choice for anyone looking to create an amazing home without breaking the bank. As the name implies, 1.5 story houses are a middle ground between a single-story and two-story house plan, meaning that they provide the best of both worlds. Standard floor plan layouts typically place the master bedroom and living areas on the ground floor in order to provide the maximum amount of space and luxury for these vital components of any home. This enables many homeowners to create an unforgettable master suite, connecting the sleeping area to a private bathroom with space for all the amenities common in modern home plans.

Why Choose a 1.5 Story House Plan?

The real beauty of a 1.5 story house plan is that the unique construction allows the master suite and living room to achieve spectacularly high ceilings. In some cases, these rooms can achieve upwards of 10- to 12-foot ceilings or more, with some even containing breathtaking vaulted designs for an unparalleled level of sophistication and openness. The ground floor plans in these homes often also feature additional full or partial bathrooms as well as game or utility rooms in addition to the dining room and kitchen. The high ceilings typically sit at the rear of the home, sometimes sloping inward toward the center of the house. By leveraging the space in such a way, 1.5 story house plans have the appearance of a two-story house plan from the front.

These plans place the remaining bedrooms on the upper floor, sometimes accompanying them with a half bath or office if not a full bathroom. These rooms run right to the ceilings, which steeple toward the back in most cases, transforming them into space-saving areas perfect for children or guests. Because the second floor plan has a smaller square footage than the first floor, the overall one-and-a-half-story home plan becomes an affordable option for growing families or any budget-conscious builder.

1 1/2 Story House Plans Give You Flexibility to Add On in Future


TPC author Brian Toolan
By

We often hear customers ask what are the advantages of a 1 1/2 story house plan? For some homeowners, this house design is visually appealing and works well in their neighborhood. For others, the one-and-a-half story house plan offers future expansion at a relatively lower cost.   1 1/2 Story Helps with Budget Considerations. A homeowner may pursue this because the current budget does not allow for building the extra space now. By focusing the budget expenditures on what is most valuable today - rather than the ex
