Four Thoughtfully Designed Multi-Family House Plans

Multi-family house plans offer economic housing for multiple families within one structure. These homes can range in architectural style, the number of living units offered within the structure, and the size of each unit. We offer a wide variety of multi-family house plans from modern and country-style duplexes to modern row-houses, Craftsman-style multiplexes and even traditional apartment plans. Below are just a few of our thoughtfully designed multi-family house plans. They feature both convenient elements and luxurious amenities. Take some time to explore what we have to offer in our collection.

 

Multi-Family Plan 062M-0001062M-0001: This one-story, Craftsman-style duplex house plan affords the occupants plenty of privacy with the common wall placed between the garages. There is storage space in the garage accessed with a service door into the backyard. The open floor plan features a corner fireplace in the great room and an island in the kitchen. Each bedroom enjoys ample closet space, and the master bedroom has a full bath. There is even a laundry room tucked away behind the garage.  Wrapped in an attractive multi-material exterior, this plan would make a great starter home for two families or ideal rental property for those looking to earn an income.

 

Multi-Family Plan 012M-0008012M-0008: Here is a multi-family house plan that provides five townhouses for five lucky families. The first floor features an open floor plan.  Enter the front from a covered porch into the living room.  A patio can be accessed from the family room, and the kitchen features an eating island. The 1-car garage includes a storage closet for stowing away potential clutter. On the second floor, four bedrooms and two full baths accommodate large or growing families. The laundry room is conveniently located upstairs, making it easy to move clothes from dryer to closets. The Northwestern-style exterior presents a rustic but handsome look of wood and stone.

 

Multi-Family Plan 021M-0014021M-0014: This multi-family house plan provides eight apartments on two floors with a most attractive exterior.  The open floor plan presents a kitchen with a food bar and a living room with a cozy fireplace. There is access to a covered porch from the dining area. Both bedrooms feature walk-in closets. A dressing room in the master bath provides a place to get ready for facing the day or painting the town. Occupants of the secondary bedroom can discreetly move in and out of the full bath with ease through their own door. Such a clever and appealing apartment plan will make these units desirably filled.

 

Multi-Family Plan 050M-0009050M-0009: Here’s an appealing traditional-style duplex plan that features a two-car garage for each of the units. Enter from a covered porch into the open living spaces. Cozy up to the fireplace in the great room or gather round the kitchen island for a snack. There’s a walk-in pantry to store lots of staples or kitchen utensils. A split-bedroom arrangement separates two secondary bedrooms from the private master bedroom. A 10’ ceiling, private bath and a walk-in closet are the highlights of the master retreat. Concealed behind bi-fold doors, the washer and dryer are opposite a nifty bench and hooks near the entrance from the garage. This thoughtful combination keeps things neat and tidy. There is no doubt with this duplex plan, you build it, they will come.

Multi-Family House Plans for the Spring Building Season

Multi-Family House Plan 052M-0001The spring building season is almost upon us. It is a popular time for building multi-family house plans, like duplexes, townhouses and apartment plans. For property owners wanting to earn income, a multi-family home plan works well for rental property. These building structures feature two or more distinct living areas separated by walls or floors. They offer the same appeal as single-family homes, and in most cases, multi-family house plans are designed and built for their economic construction. The House Plan Shop offers a broad range of multi-family homes designs including:

 

  • Duplex House Plans
  • 3-4 Unit Multi-Family House Plans
  • Townhouse Plans – Upscale multi-family plans consisting of two or more units designed with special features and extra sophistication not usually found with typical multi-family plans.  
  • Apartment Plans (5+ units)

 

Multi-family house plans are often built in densely populated areas providing the maximum number of living units while making the most of the available property. Also, duplexes and apartment buildings are quite popular in small college towns and near large universities where a significant number of students are from out of town and need temporary housing or rental property until they complete their coursework. If you’re interested in building a multi-family house plan this spring, take some time to browse all of our plan collections. There’s no better time than springtime to build a multi-family plan!
