Two-story design can be especially efficient and allow for a variety of future additions.
All Second Branch Homes are designed to achieve excellent energy efficiency and durability while remaining affordable. Each home has scores of details built-in to minimize fuel and electrical use and reduce exterior maintenance. Mechanical systems are designed for simplicity and long life. Floor plans are open and compact without wasted space and can be planned for one, one and a half and two stories.
A single story home allows 100% accessibility and a very different design vocabulary.
A one and a half story home can offer one-floor living with additional upstairs space, and lends itself to interesting design possibilities.
