Multi-family house plans include several separate and distinct living spaces within a single building. Also known as duplexes, triplexes, or multiplexes, the main distinguishing feature of multi-unit homes is that each portion of the building contains stand-alone living areas separated by walls or floors. The actual appearance and design of these buildings can vary significantly, adopting a wide range of architectural styles and internal floor plan configurations.

It's common to see these buildings have the outward appearance of one single, large home, which actually extends back into the lot and holds multiple units. These plans are frequently seen on narrow lots or in areas with limited space. Other multi-family plans have the appearance of separate facades placed side-by-side, when in fact, they are one continuous building.

Inside a Multi-Unit Plan

The interior floor plan of multi-unit homes contains contiguous divisions between each unit, which offers residents complete privacy and security. Some units may include a single shared entryway that leads to separate doors for each unit, such as with an apartment complex, while others may place all doors on the exterior of the home for a greater degree of separation.

The individual units can also vary in size significantly, ranging from economic studios to expansive spaces with upwards of three bedrooms. While it is common for multi-family floor plans to keep each unit to a single floor, some may spread one or more units across each floor. These buildings typically also do not feature garages or patios, though some may include a front porch or shared backyard.

If a multi-family building plan is something you’re interested in, we offer many options. Whether you’re building townhomes or an apartment – or you just want more space for family members and friends – look through our home designs and reach out with any questions you may have before purchasing!
