Transcript of basic house designs

One-Story Ranch Designs Another name for the One-and-One-Half house is called a "Cape Cod".
Typical designs for the One-and-One-Half house is consisted of the basement, first floor, and the attic.
This house is designed with a steeper roof so you can add an attic.
This house has two great advantages. It is very cheap to make and you can build on to the house. It's also very large.
The first floor is consisted of a living room and kitchen and the attic generally provides the bedrooms and bathrooms. This house is more expensive to build than the ranch and the one-and-one-half story houses.
You have the option to add a basement.
Two-story houses are no longer as popular as they used to be in years past because they are more expensive and harder to build than a one-story house. Also there are more contemporary houses, so unless the two story is built in a neighborhood with other two story houses then it'll be out of place. A home designer has four basic designs to choose from: the one story or ranch, the one-and-one-half-story, the two-story, and the split-level.
Each of these styles have pros and cons that need to be considered before making a choice. Four Basic House Designs Chapter 2: Basis house designs

An advantage to the ranch is the indoor-outdoor living, meaning you can add patios, porches, and terraces to any room.
People add lots of glass, so the house can bring the outside surroundings inside and make appear larger than it already is. One-and-One Half Story Designs Two-Story Designs Split-Level Designs The Split-Level is supposed to be built on sloping hill tops because it takes advantage of the difference in elevation. It should not be built on a flat surface because then you cannot get the other level of the house unless it is on a hill.
General arrangement of the house separates sleeping, living, and recreation space on different levels. Variations of Split-Level Designs There are three basic variations of the split-level design: the side-by-side, the front-to-back, and the back-to-front.
The first variation is sloped land from left to right suited for the side-by-side split-level design.
The second variation is land that is high in the front and low in the back suited for the front-to-back split-level design.
The third variation is land that is low in the front and high in the back suited for the back-to-front split-level design. Tract Houses Traffic Circulation Traffic circulation is areas of a house that provides a means of moving from one area or room to another. An analysis of traffic circulation should be made to determine whether or not it would function in the house. For example, you might have to make a small change in the floor plan so it can increase smooth flow of traffic to other places in the house. Tract housing is a style of housing development in which multiple similar homes are built on a tract of land which is subdivided into individual small lots. Tract housing developments are typically found in North American suburbs that were modeled on the "Levittown" concept and sometimes encompass large areas of dozens of square kilometers.
