1.5 Story House Plan Collection by Advanced House Plans

You’ll find many definitions of 1.5 story house plans. People often ask, “what is the difference between a 1.5 and 2 story home”. While there are many differences, the primary difference is the location of the master bedroom.

1.5 story floor plans generally have the master suite and the main living spaces on the main level and additional bedrooms on the second level. This provides the benefit of easy access to the master with no stairs compared to a 2-story home with the master on the second floor. You may also hear these plans referred to as main-level master floor plans.

Since the main level is typically much larger due to the main floor master bedroom, 1.5 story home plans take advantage of the excess space under the rafters to prevent having to add full second story walls when building the home. That is where the .5 comes into the name. If the home is designed correctly, this can be a great and efficient way to build a home.

Larger 1.5 story homes include massive great rooms, bonus rooms, and walkout basements to maximize the living space.
