FAQ

How much do single-story homes cost per square feet (approximately)?

Building a single-story home costs less than building a multi-story one, but it still varies depending on your building location, the foundation type used, and whether you include a basement. You will pay about $100 to $200 per square foot using a slab foundation, according to HomeAdvisor. Although you might consider a stilt home a two-story, only the living area counts as a story, so you can build this popular coastal home that uses piers, pilings, or posts, to erect a flood smart home. This foundation adds about $20,000 to $60,000 to the building costs. Construction in areas with a high cost of living, such as a lake or coastal community, and large cities, costs about $400 per square foot. Four items influence building costs – the price of the plat or lot, home design, the materials, and labor costs.

Are there single-story floor plans with a detached garage?  Is it possible?

You can build a single-story home with a detached garage, carport, drive under parking, as well as no parking option. At ArchitecturalDesigns.com, you have about 13,000 one-story home plans from which to choose. Of those, about 1,000 have no parking cover and an equal number uses an alternative to an attached garage. About 500 come with detached garages.

Does a single-story house usually come with a garage?

Most home designs – about 11,000 – come with an attached garage, a design feature that became popular in the 1950s. These typically come with a two- or three-car garage, but styles range in size. Available designs feature garages that accommodate one to more than five vehicles. Some designs provide indoor parking for an RV.

Is the single-story considered a grand or lux style of home?  Is the style used for mansions or normally regular-sized homes?

The single-story home provides a versatile option. It can be built as a tiny house, starter home, mid-sized home, or a mansion. You can obtain ready to build plans in sizes ranging from 108 to 12,445 square feet. In some cases, the plan counts a lofted area over a garage as a single-story design, so there are stairs. Other designs feature no steps whatsoever and no garage.

Is single-story ever built as a “small” home?  Can it be built economically?

You can build a tiny house in many designs available at ArchitecturalDesigns.com. Examples include a Swiss ski chalet measuring just 300 square feet, a modern home with flat roof and patio measuring 312 square feet, or a studio home with a covered vaulted ceiling porch that also measures 312 square feet. Enjoy 207 plan choices of 999 heated square feet or less.

Can single-story floor plans be open concept?
