A good point to take in consideration at the moment you want to build the house is 1 story or 2 story? that is the big question , one of the advandage of constructing the 1 story house is that you dont have to worry about the floor on head eventhough some people think if you dont have a 2 story house you have a small house and thats completly wrong , why ? just because you can get a 1 story house with a big space, just imagine you are building your house and all you want is to see your childrens grow in the house and spend all you life on the house that has all those memories but often we dont think in I in the future that one that someday will be old and slow thats for me will be the biggest reason why to build 1 story house.
but if that is not youe case and you are dearming with the 2 story house With a second story, you have to build it with larger lumber to support the second floor. In addition to larger lumber, several items are needed to give the home more support when framing for the second floor.
"All houses are engineered structurally, and on a single-floor home, you wouldn't have nearly as much structure as you have on a multi-level dwelling. There will be a lot more anchors, straps, tie-downs and beam work," said carpenter Jerry Miller.
Also, if you have two stories in your home, you'll need a way to move between them. That means adding stairs — and a new set of challenges to the framing process. The challenges are to make sure that all flooring materials are considered because by the time all the framing and finished materials are on the stairs, you can't have a variance of more than 3/8ths from top to bottom of each riser, which is a critical issue.
