3 Reasons to Choose One-Level Living

One-level living is becoming more and more popular among homeowners for the many conveniences and advantages it offers, and especially for its long term longevity. If you’re thinking of building a new home, it’s definitely worth it to consider the advantages of one-level living when planning your design. If you haven’t thought about one-level living yet, now is the perfect time to start! In this week’s blog, we’ll cover the many reasons you might want to choose one-level living, as well as our one-level and first floor master semi-custom home designs that we build in Maryland!


3 Reasons to Choose One-Level Living

Planning for the Future

Many people build a home planning on it being the house they will live in for the rest of their lives. With this in mind, it’s important to think about how your relationship with your home and your space will change in the future. Many homeowners end up downsizing after the kids move out, and when they find they need a more accessible home. When you build your home as a one-level home, you’ll never have to think about downsizing or worry about accessibility concerns. You’ll be able to age gracefully with your home and enjoy all that the future has to offer.

Reduced Energy Demand

One huge advantage of one-level living is that it reduces your energy demands. You only have to heat and cool the first floor, which means you’ll end up using much less energy over time. One-level living is both an energy efficient and environmentally friendly approach to home ownership.

Unique Design

Designs for one-level homes are very unique. Home buyers who tour single-story homes often find their designs a refreshing change of pace from two-story designs. From high, vaulted ceilings, to skylights, single-story homes often have a surprisingly open feel that many home buyers find appealing. If you have a larger lot, you can also take advantage by spreading out the floor plan to make the design even more open and inviting.
