Two Story Floor Plans
Two story (or taller) houses have been around since the ancient civilizations of Rome, Egypt, Sumerians, and many more who sought additional space in their homes. Although this style of house dates back thousands of years, the two story floor plans is still highly sought after today.
Two story floor plans, sometimes written as “two story house plans,” are one of the most popular house layouts or configurations for primary residences.
Characteristics of Two Story Floor Plans:
Traditional Two Story Floor Plans:
Traditional two story floor plans usually feature main living spaces on the main level, such as a living room and kitchen. Where as the bedrooms are found on the second floor of the home.
Modern Two Story Floor Plans:
Modern two story floor plans also present the main living spaces like the living room and kitchen on the main floor. However, what makes a modern two story floor plan stand out from its traditional ancestor is the master bedroom is typically built on the main level and the kids or guest bedrooms are on the second level.
One Story vs Two Story Benefits
One of the benefits of two story floor plans vs a one story floor plan is a two story leaves a smaller footprint because it is building upward instead of outward. This makes it easier for homeowners looking for new construction to find available plots of land that may not require as much space as a single story would.
The roof designs of two story floor plans are also another benefit because it offers less roof area than their single-story counterparts which can make two story designs more energy efficient.
