The Benefits of a Two Story Home in Tampa
While some people are hoping to find one story homes and they have grown in popularity over the last year or so, there are still many advantages to purchasing a two story home in the Tampa area.
- Cost Savings of Two Story Homes
The price to build a two story home is much less than that of a one story home of the same size, In new construction homes this is especially beneficial to a home buyer. The main reason for this cost savings at construction is that the foundation size of the home is significantly less. The roof is also smaller making it much less of a cost to construct. Reducing the foundation size brings a cost saving to the actual cost of construction of it as well as waterproofing, footings, walls, and any needed drainage systems. The framing is also reduced in the roof structure using less beams, trusses, rafters, sheathing, and actual roofing material. The average savings these two items bring to overall construction of a home is about 15 to 20 percent.
- Views are Better in Two Story Homes
With a second story on a home, it improves the sight distance and views. This is a very nice benefit to many homes in the Tampa area as there are so many locations that offer amazing views around Tampa Bay, St. Pete Beach and other Gulf Coast locations, Hillsborough Bay, and the countless lakes and rivers in the area. Windows on the second floor do a lot to open up more sightline to gorgeous views.
- Two Story Homes Have a Smaller Footprint
Two story homes take up less land space and as such can be built on smaller lots of land. A two story home can decrease the overall amount of lot it takes up by as much as 50 percent. This is especially beneficial if you are looking for a lot to build a home on as there will be more available and affordable options.
- Separation of Rooms from Living Areas
With a two story floorplan it is easier to provide a quieter atmosphere in bedrooms as they can be separated from main living spaces much more easily. Some homes feature a primary suite on the main level of the home with all secondary bedrooms on the upper level, this provides an added level of privacy as well for the inhabitants of the primary bedroom of the home.
There are several great two story homes all around the greater Tampa metro area from homes inside the city with quick and convenient access to activities, to large suburban properties in quiet and relaxed areas, to brand new construction, or even unique beautiful historic homes.
