A One Story House

Curb AppealSara B3 Comments

I'll be honest, I've never considered buying a single story home. Not once! They've never appealed to me. That is, until I had two kids.

Making my way up and down the stairs with both boys, keeping Miles from going up and down the stairs when he isn't supposed to, and bringing laundry up and down the stairs (we do LOTS of laundry).... it is a challenge! I can't help but think how amazingly convenient it would be to have everything on a single floor. Much to my own surprise, I have found myself dreaming of one story homes lately. Look at these beautiful ones I came across on Pinterest... dreamy indeed!

Here is an example of a one story floorplan that I LOVE! Big great room, and amazing outdoor living room and terrace.
