Whatever your answers, Kurmond Homes has many single storey house designs that can give you the square footage and spaciousness you desire, usually at a reduced cost than you would pay to build a double storey home. In addition, we can complete most of our single storey homes within 28 weeks.
Single storey homes have great curb appeal, especially with the outstanding landscaping we can include in your build. In addition, our open concept single storey house plans make the best use of your square footage since you have no stairwells to deal with. It’s also easier to provide the following in a single storey house:
Furthermore, if the time comes when you wish to add additional indoor space, such as a sunroom, game room or in-law suite, or outdoor space, such as a deck or patio, these additions are easier to make with a single storey home.
You can’t beat a single storey house for safety. With no stairs to contend with, accidents are far less likely. This is extremely important if you have young children. It’s also important if you have pets. A single storey home precludes the possibility of someone, especially a young child, tripping over a dog or cat and tumbling down a set of stairs.
With our open area floor plans, it’s also easier for you to keep an eye on the kids while they’re playing. Finally, if worst comes to worst and you have to evacuate your home quickly, doing so from a single storey home gives you the best chance of getting everyone out safely.
Another advantage of a single storey home is that it gives you and your guests maximum accessibility. Our open floor plan of single storey house designs make it easy for someone who uses a wheelchair, crutches, a cane or a walker to move around safely, easily and comfortably.
If you’re planning on making this your long-term family home where you raise your children and then enjoy your retirement years, a single storey home will allow you and your spouse to age in place.
Maintaining a single storey home is not only easier, but also substantially less expensive than maintaining a multi-storey home. Why? Consider the following:
If and when you need to move for any reason, you will be glad to know that your single storey house retains its value better than a multi-level house. One reason is because, especially with an aging population, more people seek to buy a single storey home. This high demand makes your home a great investment as well as a highly appealing place in which to live.
