Some people have the “it” factor, and others just, well – don’t. It’s the same with homes. Certain home designs are far more interesting than others, such as the homes we build in Knoxville based on our range of single story house plans.
Here are some of the most popular features of these exciting properties.
Main Floor Master Suites
It’s not necessary to sacrifice space to get rid of stairs! In a home like the Remington, a single-story home can offer all the same benefits as a larger house on one level.

You’ll also find yourself saving on energy costs, because heating a single-floor home requires less electrical power than two levels would.
Walk-in closets offer the perfect organization system for anyone, whether you’re a fashionista, a perfectionista or anything in between.

Make more space for important items by choosing single story house plans that include a walk-in closet, and increase the resale value of your home.

If you’ve always fancied yourself as an aspiring artist, now might be the ideal time to put that theory to the test. A flex room offers the perfect venue to set up your easel and watercolors, try your hand at sculpture or build that exquisite decoupage.
