24 of Our Favorite One-Story House Plans

Single level homes don't mean skimping on comfort or style when it comes to square footage. The Southern Living house plans collection offers one-story plans that range from under 500 to nearly 3,000 square feet. From open concept with multifunctional spaces to closed-floor-plans with traditional foyers and dining rooms, these plans do it all.

Whether you're looking to build your forever home in preparation for retirement, accommodating current mobility issues, or just looking for a low-maintenance option, look no further. These adaptable one-story house plans are made for young families and empty-nesters alike with comfortable layouts and flexible spaces for home offices or guest suites. And of course, plenty of outdoor living spaces from sprawling front porches to secluded screened-in ones. From longtime top-selling house plans to new designs, here are our favorite one-story house plans.
