When building a house with enough budget, consider having a two-story house plan. It is less expensive to build than one-story because it is usually cheaper to build up than to extend. The floor plans in a two-story design usually place the gathering rooms on the main floor. The master bedroom can be located on either floor, but typically the upper floor becomes the children’s domain.
