Similar to the rise in new house building, remodeling is quickly growing as well. More and more people are a choosing to remodel their homes instead of buying or building new ones. Many times upgrading or remodeling a space is a more cost effective option. The NAHB contributed several factors to this $6 billion rise in the remodeling market. While Baby Boomers are heading towards retirement, their needs range from building a brand new accessible home to making their current home fit all of their new needs.
Millennials, on the other hand, are entering the housing market with a range of expectations. A great deal of Millennials are buying older homes at a cheap price and using the rest of the budget to upgrade and remodel the home to their custom wants and needs.
Additionally, Multi-Family buildings (apartment complexes) are requesting upgrades as well. Noticing the increase in design in newer complexes influences established complexes to remodel their spaces to compete in the renting market. Even during new construction, some home builders require a house that can be easily remodeled or extended for future growth. Archival Designs features a plethora of expandable house plans that have the simplicity and flexibility to easily be remodeled in the future!
Expandable House Plans
The Tilly - Being a Ranch Style House Plan has its advantages when it comes to versatility. Including an unfurnished bonus space makes expanding accessible without having to build an actual add on, which will cut down on remodeling cost.
The Marymount - Featuring both an unfurnished 2nd floor bonus area and basement, expanding this house will have endless possibilities. The possibilities do not stop there; having an open floor plan will also make remodeling more of a design upgrade than an actual building project. The open floor layout's adaptability will allow you to simply change the purpose of most rooms.
The Pepperwood - Slightly larger than the previous house plans, The Pepperwood also includes unfinished bonus rooms, a walkout basement, and an open floor plan. This floor plan also foresees a multi-generational family’s needs by featuring a future in-law suite. Possessing these future plans with a layout already incorporated in the design will make the expanding process very easy.
