Two-Story House Design Choices Provide Flexibility and Style

When browsing our available two-story house plans, you will see that these home designs provide many options. While some will have all of the bedrooms on the second story, others will provide a master suite on the first floor, with bedrooms and office rooms on the second story. You will also find everything from Craftsman-style exteriors to cottages and bungalows.

The Eastlake is one example of this: This floor plan offers 3,154 square feet in a Country-style home plan, with brick exterior, twin dormers, and an expansive, columned front porch that combines to give this house plan a stately facade. Inside, a private master bedroom wing, soaring two-story great room open to the kitchen, three upstairs bedrooms, and a secluded rear family room with adjoining screen porch make this an ideal family home plan.
