It is often a riddle for homebuyers whether to choose a single-story ranch style floor plan or a multi-story home. Both styles have their own benefits to offer. We are here to help you decide on why to choose the former though.
Ranch style modular home in Williamsburg, VA includes a shared space on the ground floor with a number of bedrooms and bathrooms. These private areas are usually separated by the kitchen and dining space or the living room. Because of such set-up, it becomes easier to heat the entire house so you will achieve an increased energy efficiency. Heated and cooled air naturally flows through the ranch style floor plan in contrast to the multi-story house plans that require more complex and often more costly HVAC systems.
If you are not decided yet about how many floors to have in your home, it is best to choose to custom-build a ranch first. This single story floor plan has a living space that can be easily expanded come that time when you want to add more floors. Assuming you have a large enough lot, you can actually expand your ranch with the help of the wide array of options for customization that modular home construction provides. You can then add a deck, patio, or sunroom to your single-story floor plan. If you have more than one floor, it will not be easy to have these home additions because it will require you and your homebuilder to first conduct a structural analysis and careful planning for expansion.
