These designs offer smaller, easier-to-maintain homes that nonetheless pile on the comfortable amenities where it counts, like in the living room and sleeping areas. Look for plans with the master suite on the first floor for convenience and ease of access. An extra bedroom or two await visiting family, some of these with private bathrooms — perfect for adult children with little ones of their own.

'Empty Nest' house plans are typically smaller homes which emphasize openness with an open floor plan, yet are amenity rich - utilizing an efficient use of space. Typically one story, with a layout that emphasizes spaces designed for a couple, such as luxurious master suite or an office instead of third bedroom. Perfect for those who need one-level living, an 'empty nest' plan could suit a young couple just as much as a more mature home owner.

Empty-Nester Floor Plans...
