Duplex house plans are homes or apartments that feature two separate living spaces with separate entrances for two families. These can be two-story houses with a complete apartment on each floor or side-by-side living areas on a single level that share a common wall. This type of home is a great option for a rental property, or a possibility if family or friends plan to move in at some point.
The term "duplex" can also be extended to three-unit and four-unit buildings, or these can be referred to with specific terms such as triplex and fourplex or quadplex/quadruplex.
Duplex building plans are a great investment when you consider the benefits that can be reaped. Duplexes often come at an affordable price and make a great choice for a first home investment. If you rent out the other portion, you may always have an extra source of income. You can even cover your mortgage payments and your insurance coverage from the rent you charge.
