The most popular style of home built by Bill Beazley Homes is the single-level ranch floorplan. Single story homes are popular for many reasons, including the ease of moving and decorating without having to deal with the hassle of stairs.
Ranch style homes are practical and create a better flow of energy with the open build. They are cheaper to heat since they only require one HVAC unit as opposed to two in a multi-level home. The energy efficiency is a high selling point for these homes. Rooms are easily accessible and everyone feels connected yet has a sense of privacy as well. For those who need better accessibility from room to room and space to freely move, the ranch home is a perfect choice.
Single-story homes are also more cost-efficient than multi-level homes. Buyers with a budget can decide on a ranch and have more wiggle room with custom design choices inside as well as decor and furniture. There is a higher likelihood of staying in the home for a longer amount of time with its simple layout and ease of renovating if desired.
The ranch layout provides endless options for homeowners who like to entertain and host. A wide-open living room and kitchen area is perfect for parties and gatherings. Those with children can have friends over easily with plenty of room for sleepovers or birthday parties. A large living room can double as a study or office space for those who run a business from home.
Exterior maintenance is also much easier with a ranch home. Homeowners or contractors don’t have to climb extreme heights to take care of the roof or siding. Window cleaning isn’t an all-day task. Pressure-washing can be taken care of quickly and at an affordable rate.
These are just a few reasons why ranch homes are increasing in popularity. Bill Beazley Homes is here to answer any questions you may have about pros and cons of each different floorplan and can’t wait to help you build your semi-custom dream home!
