Whether you are dreaming of an open floor plan with plenty of space for your growing family or are ready to enjoy maintenance-free living, we look at a few of our top floor plans that have the features to create your dream home with functional family living. 


Open Floor Plans 

A modern open floor plan elevates the kitchen to the heart of the home, often featuring an island that provides extra counter space with seating. These uncomplicated layouts make small homes feel larger and promote a modern sense of relaxation and casual living. Like to host and entertain? Open floor plans work well for homeowners who frequently entertain guests.

Multi-Level Living

Multi-level house plans are home designs that have more than one floor of living areas and/or bedrooms, allowing for unique, separated areas within the home and flexibility for spaces like a playroom, theater, and more. 

  • Lauderdale – The Lauderdale is equipped with four bedrooms, two and a half baths and a three-car garage. This spacious house adds up to 3,800 square feet and features a soaring two-story great room, a finished lower-level with a recreation area, a bar and theater room, and a second-level master suite with a large shower and soaking tub and generous walk-in closet.

Extra Garage Space 


Whether you need extra space to store the family bicycles, or want to create a “man cave” that will be the envy of the neighborhood (well, at least the guys!), a three-car garage is likely high on your dream home wishlist.  

  • Aberdeen – The perfect design for those looking for extra garage space, Aberdeen is a 2 story floor plan with 4 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths, totaling over 3,000 square feet with a 3 car garage. This home has an expansive 2 story great room that opens up to the large eat-in kitchen which is perfect for entertaining!

Second Floor Laundry

Second Floor Laundry 

You may be accustomed to having the laundry room on the main floor, somewhere near the garage or mudroom. But when you have all of your bedrooms on the second floor, it would be nice not to schlep clothes up and down the stairs.

  • Biscayne – If a second floor laundry is a must-have on your house hunting list, this is the perfect floor plan for you. Biscayne is equipped with four bedrooms, two and a half baths and a three-car garage. This cozy house adds up to 3,400 square feet and features cathedral master bedroom ceilings and a spacious mudroom to keep the mess of soccer games and rainy days contained and organized in its own space.

Master Suite with Walk-In Closet

Your master suite should have plenty of room for you, and your clothes, shoes, and personal effects. A walk-in closet can take your master suite to the next level, and don’t hesitate to dream big when designing it! Consider expanding it to contain display racks for your shoes, full-length mirrors, couch, and island for arranging your jewelry and other personal decor. Your own personal escape in your own home! 

  • Brookhaven: A 2-story floor plan with 4 beds and 2.5 baths, the master bedroom offers a unique walk-in closet design that is separate from the master bathroom, creating separate spaces. Did we mention the walk-in closet is HUGE?!
