One story home plans and house plans come in a variety of sizes and architectural styles. Whether you are looking for a farmhouse, Craftsman, ranch, contemporary, European, traditional, country, or cabin style design (and so many more), you are sure to find what you are looking for in our 1 story house plans collection. In this collection you will find 1 story house plans (also referred to as single story house plans) that offer large floor plans (and require larger lots) and are perfect for families who love to host and entertain. Smaller 1 story house plans are ideal as a starter home for first-time home buyers or a cool vacation retreat. These stair-free floor plans feature greater accessibility and are perfect for homeowners who are looking to age in place. Many of these home designs offer bonus rooms (typically above the garage) for flexibility. You will also find designs with open floor plans in this collection. Open floor plans not only make homes feel larger than they actually are, they also promote casual living, create great traffic flows, and provide clear sightlines (with kitchens usually flowing into the main living spaces). 1 story house plans tend to be more energy efficient (cutting back on energy costs) than 2 story house plans because you only have to heat one level. Do you love the outdoors? Many of our 1 story house plan designs feature indoor/outdoor living spaces. Whether you are looking for a house plan with a front porch, patio, deck, or screened porch, we are sure to have it here.
