Floorplan Options for Growing Families

Home School Building 101

You’ve been through all the show homes and sales centres in the community you’d like to build in -- and after that legwork, there’s a floorplan that’s won you over. It’s functional, spacious and a smart pick for the way you live. It’s got it all. Except for one important factor.

The standard plan shows three bedrooms and you need four. But this doesn’t have to be a deal-breaker. If there’s a change that you think would better suit your family’s needs,
such as adding a 4th bedroom or moving the central bonus room, it’s possible we’ve expanded on them. Ask the area manager to see if that it would work with what you had in mind.

When designing a home, our design team is always thinking about what multi-generational families can do with it. We consider things, such as how the main floor flex room can be transformed into a master bedroom, giving seniors the chance to avoid using the stairs. Or, having the benefit of having a developed basement. They allow the homeowner flexibility of turning it into a recreational room or a media room, and usually include at least one or two bedrooms with a 3-piece bath.

With any new community, we do our best to get a sense of what the market demand is in the area. Once we have collected enough information, we then create optional layouts into our line up of home model standard plans. One example, there have been communities where the demand for more bedrooms was so high that we crafted a 5 bedroom layout on the second floor. They took off and ended up being the top sellers in that community.

Whatever your growing family’s needs are, chances are there’s a floorplan with options that will make you feel it was designed just for you.
