Create amazing views and maximize your lot with a multi-story home design. In some of these plans, sweeping staircases take you all the way up to a third floor, where extra bedrooms, leisure space, and even viewing decks may await. Other designs devote the ground-floor level to garage and storage, with primary living and sleeping spaces on the floors above — a great way to take advantage of a hillside lot. To move between floors easily, consider installing an elevator (check out our collection of
plans with elevators
, or consider modifying your plan to include one). This is a great way to make your plan ready for aging in place.
