The Advantage of Building Your Home With Stranville Living Master Builder 


Building a new home is an exciting venture, filled with possibilities and dreams of creating the perfect living space. One crucial aspect of this process is selecting the right floor plan, as it sets the foundation for the entire home. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore key considerations when choosing a floor plan for your new home. We will also provide insight into how easy the process of building your dream home is with the assistance of our sales and design teams. Let’s get started! 


Bedrooms and Bathrooms: Tailoring Spaces to Your Needs 


One of the primary considerations when selecting a floor plan is the number and layout of bedrooms and bathrooms. Stranville Living Master Builder offers a variety of house plans and home models, allowing you to customize these spaces to meet your specific needs. Consider the size of your family and any potential future needs, such as accommodating guests or expanding your household. 

With Stranville Living, you have the flexibility to choose from different bedroom configurations and bathroom layouts. Whether you prefer a spacious master suite with an ensuite bathroom or additional bedrooms for a growing family, Stranville’s  home building process and options ensure that your new home meets your unique requirements. 


Choosing the Right Architectural Style

Choosing the right architectural style is pivotal, influencing both the exterior aesthetics and interior functionality of your home. Stranville Living Master Builder offers a range of options, including: 

Bi-level Homes

Featuring split entryways, with living spaces on one level and bedrooms on another, bi-level homes offer a distinctive layout that provides separation between living and sleeping areas. 

Two Storey Homes

Providing a more traditional layout with all bedrooms situated on the upper floor, two storey homes offer a classic design suitable for various lifestyles. 

Bungalow Designs

Ideal for those seeking a single-level living experience, bungalows offer convenience and accessibility, making them an excellent choice for individuals or families with mobility considerations or young families. 


Perfect for urban living, townhomes typically feature multiple floors with shared walls. Stranville Living’s townhome designs maximize space efficiency while providing a sense of community. 

Duplex Homes

Featuring two separate living units under one roof, duplex homes are a versatile option, offering both privacy and shared living spaces, often at a more affordable price point than detached homes. 

With many options to choose from, consider your lifestyle, preferences, and the unique benefits each architectural style offers when deciding on the design that best suits your needs. Our sales team is adept at assisting individuals and families with this decision. The Stranville Living team is versed in our home models and their specifications, allowing them to focus on your unique needs and preferences when suggesting the perfect home model.

Square Footage: Finding the Right Balance 


The square footage of your new home is a critical factor in determining its overall size and functionality. Stranville Living Master Builder offers various floor plans with different square footage options, allowing you to choose the right balance between spaciousness and practicality. 

Think about how you intend to use the space in your new home. Do you need ample room for entertaining guests, or are you looking for a more intimate and cozier environment? Stranville Living’s talented sales and design teams can help you explore floor plans that align with your lifestyle and preferences, ensuring that every square foot is optimized for your comfort and convenience. 

It’s also a good idea to consider long-term plans when selecting a floor plan. Stranville Living Master Builder can help you consider options for future expansion, whether it’s adding an extra bedroom, a home office, or creating a versatile space that can adapt to changing needs. Planning for the future ensures that your home remains functional and relevant for years to come.

Width and Garage Arrangements: Maximizing Space Efficiency 


The width of your home and the arrangement of the garage are critical elements that impact both the exterior aesthetics and interior layout. Stranville Living Master Builder understands the importance of maximizing space efficiency, and our floor plans reflect this commitment. 

Whether you’re working with a narrow lot or expansive space, Stranville offers floor plans that make the most of every inch.

Creating a home with the right flow for daily living is essential for ensuring comfort and functionality. Stranville Living Master Builder prioritizes designs that promote seamless transitions between different areas of the home. Consider how you move through spaces in your daily routine and how the floor plan supports these movements. 

Open-concept layouts are a popular choice, providing a sense of spaciousness and connectivity between the kitchen, dining, and living areas.
