House Floor Plans With a Basement
Whether you want a home that has a walkout basement, a one story with a basement, or any other type of home that has a basement, this is the right page. These are great features to have that can provide you with that additional storage space you’ve always been wanting.
If you have a passion for fixing up old motorcycles, this can also be the space that provides enough flexibility to make it happen, or it can be your rustic, unfinished retreat at the end of a long day, where you make craft creations come alive.
Basements have so many advantages, besides providing additional storage. If you are changing your furniture, they can act as an intermediary place to put stuff in that is going out, meaning it might just save you from the hassle of having to drive to the dumpster on a Saturday morning if you don’t want to rather than have them stand around in an already stuffed living room.
Most teenagers would also dream of having their home in the basement which is usually a relatively secluded part of the house, where they would more so be able to feel like independent people, instead of having a bedroom that shares a wall with the master suite, and the basement may in that instance act as an alternative to a second master suite.
One-Story House Can Still Have a Basement
So, you already decided that you’re not interested in a two-story home, but a single-level one. But not just any single level one. What you’re interested in is specifically one-story house plans with a basement as the foundation, which is exactly what we are going to share with you on this page.
These are convenient homes to consider because you don’t have the inconvenience of having to climb a staircase when you are wanting to get to your bedroom, and they also provide the benefits of having a basement. There’s also the specific style that includes a walkout basement, if you have a property on a sloped lot, that will give you easier access and more sunlight – while you can find those homes on this page too, they have a specific page of their own, if that is the particular style you are hoping for.
If you’re in need of additional storage space, or if that man cave is a thing that’s been on your mind for a very long time, getting a basement when you’re building a home, is a really good idea. It may also just turn out to be the place where you end up placing that home gym you’ve been wanting.
No matter your desire to get a basement, look around the site, and feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
Some people only see problems if they’re building on a sloping lot, other people see the opportunity to turn that beautiful mountain lot into a charming retreat with the use of daylight basement house plans.
Instead of having the usual home with a basement, where it isn’t really used for much besides storage, take advantage of the fact that you have an additional space that can easily be made functional during the day simply by adding windows to let in sunlight. If you’re building on a sufficiently steep slope, you may even be able to make it a walkout basement, where you don’t just get in sunlight, but you have free access to leave through also.
Not all homes are meant to be built on built on flat surfaces, and you can easily make a well-lit basement a bonus room that can either be used for your Mother-in-law, guests or a home gym. If you choose to finish it, it can be used for the man cave you may have always wanted, or rather a yoga studio, but it can also just be the place where you store bikes or other yard equipment.

A Bonus Room
There are certain rooms that may be added to a house that don’t make them qualify as traditional rooms, which leads us to you finding our page containing house plans with bonus rooms.
Yes, bonus rooms are the ones that may not meet the local building code requirements to be classified as a normal room, which usually has to do with lacking certain things such as a window, a closet or other parts, although this will be determined by your county’s regulations.
Although these rooms may not necessarily be able to be classified as a traditional room, they are still highly functional and are usually used for a myriad of things, including a home office, guest room, a place for your Mother-in-law, a yoga studio, a gaming room, a man cave or a home gym, just to mention a few.
Do know that bonus rooms may not be able to raise the resale value of the house as much as a traditional room would be able to, so while you may not think about installing the necessary outlets right now, it could be a thing you’re ending up having to do at a later point.
If in fact it’s a house with a bonus room in the usual Cape Cod style with sloped roofs, these may also affect the functionality of the space. While it may not be ideal for the resale value, since these rooms don’t quality as traditional ones, they also won’t count for your property taxes.
Modern or not, here we come, including options that have open floor plans
While some people may associate homes with basements as a more traditional way of building, that definitely isn’t always the case as there are many beautiful, modern homes that have basements. If you have specific features in mind that you want to have incorporated, such as a modern, open floor layout, all you have to do is appropriately set up the various parameters, and the platform will automatically only show you the plans that fit those requirements.
Small or large, or perhaps even on a hillside
We understand that our users span a vast number of preferences, and that often means that someone may want a smaller home, while others are looking for something more substantial leaning towards the larger side – we are able to accommodate the various groups no matter what your preferences may be, and we even have floor plans that work if you’re planning on building on a hillside.
Sloped lot with a walkout basement
One of the most requested features when it comes to people looking for these specific homes is that they are looking for an option that includes a walkout basement and the convenience it provides because they have a sloped lot that they’re working on. Usually when you have a sloped lot, you also have a great view, and how great would it be to have the additional square footage that comes with a basement while still having it be readily accessible from the outside?
Simple ranch, rambler, a basement bar layout, a finished bedroom or whatever your heart desires
Ranch homes and rambler ones are typically single-story and very spread out, why they’re not ideal for narrow lots of land, but if you’re placed somewhere where that is not a concern of yours, it is a very popular style.
Other users may find that what they’re looking for is really to create a basement bar and that man cave you have always been dreaming of, or perhaps simply a cozy place to hang out.
If on the other hand, what you are looking for is the possibility to finish a bedroom in the basement at some later point, you may be looking to get house plans that adequately address those needs, rather than having to only start thinking about it years from now.
Small lake house with walkout basement
Besides sloping lots, a lot of our users are also requesting walkout basements because they’re either trying to build a small or large lake house. When people go to their lake houses, there are often a range of features that they tend to find useful, including how many people they usually have visiting them when they go there. If you usually gather a bigger group when going there, you may want something bigger than a 2, 3 or 4 bedroom place and you may even be desiring to look in our section of mansion homes instead. If that’s not the case, something smaller may suffice, and you can easily adjust the platform’s parameters to find the floor plans that have the size you’re looking for.
Basement garage and a mountain home?
Having a garage in the basement is a popular option that even persists through our 3-story homes, as well as many other categories. A drive-under option is appealing to many as you can drive up and enter the home and not have to inconveniently get out of your car just to step out in the rain, which is very practical, especially when you have either luggage or groceries that you are carrying inside. We additionally have homes of this style that are more rustic and specifically made with the intention that you will want to build them in the middle of the mountains, with the gorgeous views that they provide.
2-story options, tiny homes and more
One of the main benefits of our platform is the many different filters you are able to apply to the various floor plans that we offer, so if you are looking for something that is specifically 2-story, then we can accommodate you with that request.
You can also find tiny homes that still have exactly the square footage that you are looking for. All you have to do is figure out what your minimum and maximum requirements are, and we’ll take it from there.
There are many families that want homes that really stand out and that is one of the reasons people often start looking into the A-frame options because they also lend themselves beautifully to the addition of a basement. If you are one to want to stand out in the neighborhood where you’re building, we also have H-shaped homes, however, those are less likely to have a basement when compared to their A-framed counterparts.
1500 sq ft, 1.5 story or split-level
The average size of the home we usually tend to find in this category is about 1,500 sq ft which is the size of your typical home. People craving the functionality of a basement are also more so looking for 1.5 storey options, and split-level ones than is the case for a lot of the other plans made available on this site. We also have cute Craftsman cottages, and you can even turn the basement into an in-law suite, which can help keep them at what may sometimes feel like the necessary arms length by having them stay in the finished basement.
