Single storey house or 2 or 3 storey house?
Dawg you have to know it’s not spelled that way
I like the British spelling better
Now that I have arthritis, definitely one story ... but with high ceilings.
Absolutely one level, plus a full basement. There has never been a good reason to build a multi-level house, and the only reason I've ever heard given is that it is cheaper. Worst reason ever. Multi-story homes are less convenient, without exception far less comfortable, are more difficult to maintain, and are hideous to look at.
Don't care for two stories above ground either.
We love our basement, but the basement does make it a multi-level house.
It's just convenient storage, a place for the house’s machinery (furnace, water heater, etc), and easy access to things like wiring, plumbing, and ductwork. I don’t think of it as an additional level in the same way that I don’t think of the attic as another level. It doesn’t make sense not to have one, as digging the hole and pouring a little extra concrete doesn’t cost all that much, and it doesn’t ugly up the house, which looks exactly the same from outside as it would if it was built on a slab or over a crawlspace.
One story so I can grow old in it.
In old early so love my one storey
That’s good that you don’t have to deal with stairs.
It's been a dream of mine to have a three story home.
Any particular reason?
I always liked the idea of walking up the steps and having the third floor as a study/playroom. When I was younger, the privacy of the third floor appealed to me.
I have a single story house, and also a vacation condo that has everything I need on the first floor, but had an upstairs guest suite.
2 story with a basement.
When we bought our house last year. A basement was on our wish list. A house without a basement was a deal breaker.
If you don't mind, why was a basement imperative?
Mainly for the extra space and dedicated storage area.
Our basement is actually 4 separate rooms. A finished area and 3 unfinished areas. One of the unfinished areas is a storage room. Another was a workroom. And the other is where the furnaces and water heater are.
Each room in the basement is a good size.
Is it split level or true basement?
It’s a true basement. The basement is about 1,400 sq ft.
Wow, sounds like a great area
We got lucky with this house. It was more than we ever expected. 2800 sq ft (not including the basement) just under 2/3 of an acre and a little less than the midpoint of our budget.
Midpoint of our expected price range is more accurate.
One story home.
I hate stairs
