Family home plans (sometimes written "familyhomeplans" or "family house plans") anticipate and encourage the hustle-bustle of family life. Look for family home plans that present kid-specific areas, like playrooms, nooks or rec rooms. Open floor plans are very common, as this type of layout, i.e. where the main living and dining spaces are open to the kitchen, allows everyone (kids, extended family, etc) to interact with the chef(s) and enjoy the aromas of shared meals. Parents with young kids tend to prefer a 2 story family house plan that features all bedrooms grouped together upstairs, as this set up doesn't require multiple trips up and down stairs whenever a diaper needs to be changed, etc. That said, you'll also discover 2 story family home plans in this collection that present their master suite on the main level, as parents with teenagers often seek a little extra privacy from one another.
