We were intrigued to see what floor plans topped the charts this past 2014. According to BuilderHousePlans.com, here are five of the top-selling house plans for 2014. The plans below are not in any particular rank order, and they’re not an all-inclusive list, but we did find it interesting: most of the top-selling house plans had in a few characteristics in common. In a recent survey of house plan shoppers, home features that ranked high on the homeowner must-have lists: 78% wanted an open floor plan, 64% wanted the master bedroom on the main floor, and 61% placed outdoor living space amongst the top priorities. Not surprisingly, these were all features included in the top ten best-selling plans.
All of the top ten boasted impressive outdoor living spaces; some include grilling porches, screened porches, and all of the top ten included at least one outdoor fireplace. Nine out of the top ten plans included the master bedroom on the main floor, and all ten included extensive kitchen counter space which incorporated an island, a snack bar, or both.
Take a look at house plan #1. It has topped the charts for an amazing five years in a row!! Wow! And when we read this, we weren’t surprised. Time and time again, we get clients requesting variations of this floorplan. Why? It embodies many of the current design movements: an extensive lanai and fireplace-heated barbecue in back, lots of kitchen space, a two-way fireplace gracing wide open living spaces, and a master bedroom on the main floor. The plan typically varies anywhere from 2,100 sf on the main floor, up to 3,500 or 4,000, with the most popular square footage on the main floor ranging somewhere between 2,500 and 3,100 sf.
