Benefits of Main-Level Living

June 19, 2018 6:10 pm Published by Comments Off on Benefits of Main-Level Living

There are plenty of reasons for homeowners of all ages to prefer homes with main-level living. While retirees and older home owners may gravitate toward single-story homes to avoid the aches and pains associated with having to climb stairs daily, families with young children and pets may also find main-level living safer and more convenient. No matter your reason for wanting a home design with main-level living, Scotch Homes currently has two new homes in Chelsea AL designed to appeal to a variety of homeowners.

Perhaps one of the primary reasons people look for main-level living homes is the lack of stairs. While some homes, such as the Cambridge and Breton designs from Scotch Homes, do include upper levels that can be used for storage or finished and turned into additional living/sleeping areas, there’s no need to use the stairs daily. All of the living is on the ground level. Whether you have mobility issues that make stairs taxing or you have young children who may see stairs as a dangerous challenge, ground-floor living is simply safer for many homeowners.

Another reason for choosing a main-level home design is the convenience it offers. Cleaning the home is easier, because you don’t have to drag cleaning supplies and vacuums upstairs and downstairs. Furthermore, all of the home’s rooms are close at hand so you won’t find yourself making multiple trips up and down stairs, often with your hands full, which can be dangerous for any age. This is particularly helpful when it comes to laundry, as the laundry room is located on the same level, making it easier, even if it’s still not fun. It’s also easier to keep an eye and ear out for young children at play or mischief.

For anyone on the market for main-level new homes in Chelsea AL, Scotch Homes currently has two beautiful homes ready for their new owners to move into now. The Cambridge design, on the market for $290,220, and the Breton, available at $291,570, both sit on almost half-acre lots. Each home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and additional space upstairs to be used for storage or completed for extra living space. Both have upgraded finishes in them, and are currently staged and stunning! They are open for viewing every day, so contact Scotch Homes today to see if one of these outstanding home designs is perfect for your needs.

Client Testimonials

We had a wonderful experience having our home built by Wayne Scotch and the Scotch Homes Team. They were very patient in helping us get ready to start the project and even helped us find the perfect location. He was always available to help us through each step and to explain everything. Wayne's wife, Stefani, works hard behind the scenes to make sure that orders are placed and deadlines are met. She is also available to answer questions and to make recommendations! We felt that our house was always of the utmost importance to Wayne and his team! Now that the house is finished, we are so glad that we had Scotch Homes do the building. The quality and workmanship in our home is very obvious. Wayne and the entire Scotch Homes team are extremely honest, caring people and their Christian concern is a huge part of their business. There could not be a better company or a better builder anywhere than Scotch Homes. We recommend them highly and we are very grateful that we found them!Jim and Maria Brandt
After living in the same home for 28+ years, we decided to build a home. We feel so fortunate to have contracted with Scotch Homes and Land Development for the project. Scotch Homes listened to what we wanted in our new home, provided house plans that met our needs and made wonderful suggestions throughout the building process. We were amazed at the progress each day when we visited the construction site. Scotch Homes constructed a quality built home that we love, in a very convenient location on a great lot! Their team provided us with contacts for selections of our lighting, flooring, etc, emailed me when selections were due, and provided a valued opinion about selections when I asked for her help. Not only are we thankful that Scotch Homes built our home, we also are blessed to now call them our friends.

From the moment we met with Scotch Homes, they listened to all the different things we wanted to include into our new home. They discussed every step. The budgets we had for brick, lighting , flooring and even the landscaping were generous enough that I could stay in budget and not go over.

Besides being a great builder Scotch Homes is a great company that takes pride in their work. I recommend Scotch Homes to everyone I meet. If you have thought about building a home with Scotch Homes ,I promise, you will have a wonderful time!
