During the planning phase of your custom home building process, you may want a home with more space. Many homeowners choose to build more levels onto the home, but have you considered building out rather than building up? There are many advantages to a single-level custom home. Here are just a few reasons you should think about choosing this type of construction.
Perfect for All Ages
One thing that a lot of people like about single-level homes is the lack of stairs. This means that mischievous little ones can’t climb all over them and potentially hurt themselves, and older folks can move about the space with considerably more freedom. Having the entire home on one level also makes cleaning a breeze. No more hauling a heavy vacuum up and down the stairs! And laundry is much easier without the stairs too!
Single-level homes can also be more energy efficient than their multi-level counterparts. Heat rises and cold air falls. This means that one level is almost always warmer than the other. The home’s HVAC system has to work overtime to try and make the temperature more evenly distributed, which can drive heating and cooling bills way up. In a single-level home, it is much easier to maintain your desired temperature. A couple of ceiling fans should do the trick, and they use far less energy than an HVAC unit.
Lots of Open Space
When most people hear that a home is only one level, they usually immediately picture this tiny, cramped little place. This is actually not what a single-level custom home is like at all. Homeland Builders’ expert design team will work with you to build you the single-level home of your dreams, with as much open space as you would like!
