Top Floor Plans For Young Families

Looking for the right floor plan is one of the most exciting parts of any new home search. There are countless possibilities for how your home could be laid out plus optional upgrades to choose from. For over 30 years, Ernest Homes has crafted homes that families love, and while our designs may have evolved, our commitment to quality and comfort will always stay the same no matter what floor plan you choose.

While you’ll ultimately decide which floor plan best suits your family's needs, we have a few options that we think are perfect for young families. Take a look!

What Are The Best Floor Plans For Young Families?

The Liberty

Welcomed by a wide-open entry and foyer, the Liberty opens into a spacious 1,459-square-foot layout. If you’re a big entertainer, you’ll love the ample space throughout the main living areas. Start with cocktail hour and hors d'oeuvres at the kitchen’s large center island with a high seating bar that overlooks the breakfast nook. The kitchen also includes granite tops with a 15-year sealant and stainless steel appliances. Switch it up and have a nice family dinner out on the 12’x11’ covered back porch. This is a great place to relax with a good book, too. There’s tons of natural light in the great room where you can add a fireplace to create a cozy ambiance (or amp up the tension for a scary movie night).

The Liberty features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms within its single-level layout. The owner’s suite is just far enough away from the others for some privacy, but close enough if one of your children needs you. You’ll have your own large walk-in closet and a full bathroom with twin sinks. The other bedrooms are sizable with their own closets and easy access to the main floor full bathroom.

The Wassaw

The features and optional upgrades of the Wassaw plan are sure to impress you. Choose among several elevation options that offer a classic look with many ways to add your personal touch. For instance, create a charming exterior with vinyl siding, brick veneer trim, and asphalt shingles. Once inside the 1,898 square feet of living space, you’ll be welcomed into a highly functional, open layout. All 4 of the bedrooms are located along one side of the home with the owner’s suite at the rear.

Take your Wassaw plan to the next level with a few upgrades. Make the owner’s suite your personal spa with a double vanity, garden tub, and stand-up shower. You can add a covered patio with access from the owner’s suite. Enjoy meals al fresco with your favorite comfortable outdoor furniture and a first-class grill. You'll suddenly love cooking at home! An optional heated sunroom will add 112 square feet of living space with a multitude of uses: home office, reading room, craft studio, child’s play area, and so much more.

The Greybeard

If you’re needing just a bit more room, our Greybeard floor plan will be your go-to with 5 bedrooms or 4 and a loft, 2.5 bathrooms, and 2,579 square feet of living space. This two-story home has plenty of space for a growing family or visiting guests. The home cook in you will love the open kitchen with easily accessible cabinets, a roomy pantry, granite countertops, and the option for an island. The flex room near the kitchen can accommodate whatever your family needs. Playroom? Dining area? Media room? Whatever you choose!

You’ll find all of the bedrooms tucked upstairs with the laundry room and a full bathroom. If you only need 4 bedrooms, the extra room can easily be turned into a loft that fits your family’s lifestyle. The owner’s suite has everything you need to get ready in the morning and wind down in the evening. It features an enormous walk-in closet and a double vanity, a large garden tub, and a stand-up shower in the bathroom.
