At Kettler Forlines Homes, we design and build a variety of homes – including single-story homes. Though they primarily feature a single-level living space (plus a lower level), they offer 3 to 5 bedrooms, up to 4,400+ square feet, and a level of comfort and style you won’t believe. Single-level home designs are attractive options for many reasons…
1.) Easy to navigate. The biggest attraction of one-story homes is the fact that everything (or almost everything) you need is on one floor — no stairs required. If you or an older family member has limited mobility, arthritis or achy knees/hips, this is a definite advantage. (And it’s not a bad thing if you’re chasing after rambunctious kids, either!)
3.) Luxurious living space. Our single-level homes include lots of open living space. Rooms have high ceilings, lots of windows, and flow easily into one another – without a staircase cutting into the space. Plus, they can be customized with many of our luxury options, such as sunrooms, screened porches, and finished lower levels with tons of possibilities.
2.) Safety. Falling down the steps is a big concern, for young and old. Single-level living means no worries about you, your parents, your kids or your pets tumbling down steps. And no need to haul laundry, shopping, storage boxes, suitcases, or anything else up and down stairs.
4.) Easy to clean. Vacuums are heavy – especially if you’re lugging them up the stairs. If you live on a single floor, it’s so much easier to go from one end of the house to the other with a vacuum or other cleaning supplies. (Takes less time, too!)
5.) Everyday life. No stairs mean that you can move easily from the laundry room to the kitchen or living areas or bedrooms. (There are two steps down to the garage, by the way. But only two!) And if you want/need more space, our lower levels provide flex space for a recreation room, home office, fitness center or den. Our outdoor living areas may include a screened porch, rear patio or deck for even more living space.
