One of the many benefits of building a modular home is the flexibility it allows. Whether you are a big family, a married couple, or a single retiree, you can find a floor plan that works for you. One-person floor plans are especially fun to build as they provide a custom alternative to apartment living.
What Should You Know About One-Person Floor Plans?
You can customize one-person modular floor plans just as easily as you can customize a 3-story modular floor plan. When you’re designing your floor plan, the ranch-style is a good plan to keep in mind because it is long and open.
If the floorplan calls for three bedrooms, you can easily customize it to two (yours and a guestroom) and incorporate the extra space into the kitchen or a living area. You might decide to remove the wall between two bedrooms and increase the size of the Master Suite. If a 1-bedroom, 5-car garage home is what you want, you can have that too!
3 Tips for building a one-person modular home.
1. You can go as small (or as large) as you want.
Just because you’re an individual doesn’t mean you have to limit your house size. If smaller works better for you, great! If you prefer to have plenty of space to roam, don’t shy away from adding a few extra rooms. Your floor plan should fit your needs and desires as a homeowner. Be clear with your designer regarding your preferences.
2. You can work from an existing floorplan or design your own.
As already mentioned, ranch style modular homes work great for one-person floor plans. However, you can choose from any style or design your own. One of the perks of building modular is your ability to customize. Take some creative liberty and add some fun twists.
3. Build smarter, not harder.
If you are someone who prefers a smaller floor plan, remember to utilize the design. By that, we mean build smart. Add storage inside walls, drawers under your bed, etc. Remember that sometimes less is more. You can have a one-person floor plan that functions like a 5-bedroom home.
Don’t forget that you can always add on later!
If you aren’t 100% sure how much space you need, remember that the beauty of modular home building is that you can add on later. Room additions are easy with prefabricated homes.
