Multilevel home plans are a popular choice for growing families. Traditionally, a multilevel house is simply two or more floors stacked on top of each other, but there are variations of this home design. Another type of multilevel home design is called a split level. The split level ranch was a very popular style built mostly from the mid 1940s into the 1980s. In these homes, short flights of stairs leading up and down can be found just off or adjacent to the entryway.
Multilevel Home Plan Advantages
A split level home can be a more efficient living space for families who prefer separate living spaces. In these multilevel home plans, the contours of the land can be used as an advantage. It was American architect Frank Lloyd Wright who believed that houses with “half floors” would blend in naturally with the landscape. Daylight basements that allow sunlight and air circulation to enter the room are a popular choice in this home design. Garages can also be sunken to allow level access into the home.
