2-Story Multi-Plex Home Plan
Why build a duplex? Firstly, buyers want to save time and money on construction. For example, this design calls for traditional materials. Simple building materials expedite the process because they are in-stock at your local building supply company. Do not worry about custom and specialty orders with long back-order timeframes. Wood or vinyl siding is easy to come by, and this duplex plan is a great “cookie-cutter” option. Secondly, buyers want to save money on maintenance costs. Do you need to replace some of that siding? No problem! Repairs are fast and easy when you’re working with mass-produced materials.
Thirdly, 3 bedroom housing is appealing to a large category of renters. Two-Story Duplex Plan 72778 has three bedrooms per unit. People in all stages of life are in the market for 3 bedroom homes. For example, young families may need only 2 bedrooms for the kids. Some families will appreciate using the main floor bedroom as an office or guest room. Other tenants who may be interested include the following: retired couples or those who are on a budget. Not to mention, this 2-unit design is an excellent option for an Airbnb or Vrbo property if you live in a popular destination.
Functional Layout With Lots of Closets
Main Floor: Entering from the covered front porch, you arrive in a living space that measures 15’4 wide by 12′ deep. This is adequate space for a large wall-mount tv and a plush recliner couch. Traffic flows into the dining room, and the whole area is illuminated with natural light from the bay window surround. Imagine enjoying your morning cup of coffee right here. The galley style kitchen is perfectly suited to this 1,279 square foot unit. Continuing back, we find a full bathroom on the right and a bedroom in the rear of the living space. It measures 10′ wide by 10′ deep and includes a walk-in closet. Plus, the hallway has three separate closets to help out with storage and organization.
Level 2: Upstairs, we find a convenient washer and dryer in a small closet. Occupants will love having a second floor laundry room because they don’t need to lug laundry up and down the stairs. Both bedrooms have a nice-sized closet, and they share a full bathroom. In addition, a large walk-in closet in the hallway helps to keep your toiletries and towels close at hand.
