A 1.5 story house plan offers homeowners the same advantages of a 2 story home without having to be two full stories. With larger living areas and vaulted ceilings, a 1.5 story home provides an open feel making the home look bigger than it actually is. 1.5 story homes gain their popularity by offering a creative use of loft areas and multi-purpose rooms. The master bedroom and primary living spaces are usually located on the main floor while additional bedrooms and guest rooms are typically located upstairs. With plenty of space for family to come to visit and no need to climb stairs on a daily basis, older homeowners often appreciate the convenience and comfort of a 1.5 story home.
