Analyze Your Lifestyle

Before putting a pencil to napkin, do some self-reflection on your lifestyle. What areas do you use the most in your current environment? Which rooms do you never seem to step foot in, and what do you wish you had that you don’t? Create a top 10 priority list of your must-haves - but be prepared to pare it down to fit your budget. With good planning, you can get the most important features in a space that’s affordable.

The first thing to consider when choosing the right home plan is size. This begins with the number of bedrooms you will need. Of course, you will need enough bedrooms for your children, but remember to consider a guest bedroom for visiting friends and family. Do you need an office for an at-home worker? Make a decision about size, and choosing the right home plan for your family and budget will come easily.

Open-concept homes are naturally impressive to guests and make keeping an eye on little ones much easier - plus they are incredible to entertain in! The kitchen and family room flow seamlessly together, while the dining area remains visible. Think about how much seating you’ll need around the kitchen bar or island and whether you’ll want a separate dining room or one incorporated into the living area. PATCO's exclusive "Livability At A Glance" colorized plans can help guide you in your selection.

We've Got Your Key!

Single Floor Or Two Story?

Many families prefer the convenience of single-floor living where any place in your home is just a few steps away. PATCO's open concept plans create a single level flow that offers the traditional convenience of a ranch along with appealing modern design. Families with young children, seniors and individuals with mobility challenges will find the additional safety in eliminating stairs reassuring.

If you have a large family, are planning on expanding your family in the future - and would prefer not to relocate or build an addition - PATCO's two-story home plans are perfect! Second floors can always be finished off later to save on initial costs. Our classic capes and colonials have plenty of curb appeal with timeless styles that will bring compliments for years to come!
