Safety and Mobility Features of Single Home Plans Canberra Area

In a single story home you do not need to worry about the safety issues of stairs. There is no need to install balustrades or safety barriers. Single plan Canberra homes are ideal for those with young children or elderly parents, or for those that are less mobile. Single story homes are sometimes better for pets too

Great for Heating, Air Conditioning, and Ventilation

Although a double story home is great for keeping the home warm due to air rising, cooling the home in the summer is much easier in a single story home. Whether cooling or heating, the electricity bill is much cheaper in a single story home! There is also no need to install a second heat pump unit.

Ceiling Height in Single Home Designs Canberra

Generally, two story homes have lower ceilings than one story homes. If you like a spacious look and feel, a single story home may be best for you. Also, when you build a single story house, the ceiling heights and designs can be varied.

The sound will travel faster vertically than it travels horizontally. Television and music noise is much more disruptive when it is traveling between floors when you are in a double story home. Sleeping in a single story home can be much quieter.
