Floor Plans for One-Story House are typically used to provide the fundamentals of a house to the architect prior to construction. These floor plans typically cover the inside and outside of the house. Some of the information provided is information that is never changed and some is content that can be changed as the construction progresses.
The master plan can vary from house to house and from architect to architect. The floor plan for one-story house will generally have a room north of the front door, through the living room and over to the master bedroom. This is usually referred to as the main living room. The middle of the living room will be a kitchen, dining room and bathroom.
The stairs to the second floor will connect to a large room in the basement which is typically the children’s play room. The stairs will lead to the loft above the children’s play room.
Second floor stairwells can be easy to build as they follow the straight lines of the house. The most difficult part of building this type of stairwell is in the relationship between the staircase and the side walls. Generally, the lower levels of the home are designed as small apartments and the upper levels are built up as a multi-level unit.
Different levels can be different sizes or shapes. A corner stair will commonly connect the two bedrooms on the first floor. The stair may also connect the bathroom to the kitchen on the second floor.
Loft apartments have stairs leading up to the loft or attic area of the home. The loft apartment may contain both the main living area and the bedroom. Generally the loft apartment on the ground floor is used for children’s activities.
The L-shape is similar to the corner stair but it runs along the side walls of the room rather than running perpendicular to the hallways. The stair is a common feature in the master suite or the main bedroom. The stairs may run from the master bedroom or loft apartment to the downstairs or upper level of the home.
The living room or den is often built as a center of activity. The living room on the ground floor is typically designed as a casual gathering place. The room on the second floor can also be a social gathering place, even though most of the family lives in the main house.
