Our collection of 2 story house plans feature home designs with two levels of heated living space. 2 story house plans have lots of perks and advantages. For example, a 2 story house plan requires less land to build on (and land is not cheap!) since these home designs are built up instead of out. Many 2 story house plans also feature bonus rooms above the garage (perfect for future expansion). Building on a narrow lot? You’re in luck. 2 story home plan designs work well on narrow lots since they do not require as much land as 1 story house plans – saving you money on land costs. Traditionally, 2 story house plans feature all the bedrooms, including the master suite, on the second level. This layout works well for homeowners who have young children and want all the bedrooms to be within easy reach of one another. This collection also features 2 story house plans with the master suite on the main level (while the other bedrooms reside on the second). Layouts with the master suite on the main level are a great choice for aging in place (or consider a design with an elevator for even more accessibility). This layout option is also great for empty nesters or homeowners with teenagers who want privacy. 2 story house plans feature both traditional layouts and layouts with open floor plans – depending on your preferences and lifestyle. In our 2 story house plans collection you will find Craftsman, farmhouse, country, traditional, European, narrow lot house plans, and many more.
