There are many ways to design a set of two story house plans. You can create a full two story house (for example, a Colonial house design) or a partial two story. A third variation is a split level house design. This type of home usually appears as a single story from the front but a two story on the back. It is most often used on sloping lots.
The home pictured below is a partial two story with the second floor built over the garage. This home is also built close to the edge of a steep slope and has a full length deck on the back of the house.
This home is located in Fallbrook, California and is
4,600 square feet in size.

Two story house plans do cost a little bit more to build (on average) than do single story house plans, due to the additional need of a stairway and a two story foundation. However, there could be some savings in roofing costs which help offset these extra building items. By any measure, they are very popular with many of our clients and are often the perfect solution to a small building site area.
