The majority of the Top 10 Best-Selling House Plans of 2012
have flexible spaces that can be finished now or later. These four plans kick that trend up a notch with extra-big spaces that give buyers all kinds of possibilities for future expansion. Home theater? Guest apartment? Housing for a bounce-back kid? It’s their choice, and one that doesn’t even have to be made now.
The huge upstairs bonus space in this plan enjoys light from two sides of windows. A full bath would make this a great guest suite or teen hangout. On the main level, a wide island anchors the kitchen. The spacious master suite offers a double shower and a divided walk-in closet. Two more bedroom suites share the right wing. Want to see inside?

Buyers will love the impressive kitchen space and many fireplaces found in this home. Cozy hearths warm the great room, screen porch, and deluxe master suite (don't miss the circular, glass-enclosed sitting room). There's room at the kitchen's snack counter for many visitors to pull up seats, with an extra island inside adding prep space. Two additional bedrooms each access a porch. Thoughtful amenities include a mudroom entrance from the garage and a large bonus room upstairs. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
Though this home’s bonus space isn’t as large as the others in this collection, it is generous relative to the size of the home (1,897 square feet) and offers a full bath. Downstairs, a two-sided fireplace warms the great room and the flex room. A screen porch with a fireplace is an upscale touch. See more images, information, and the floor plan
The wonderfully open layout of this country home emphasizes comfortable family spaces. As the hub of the home, the island kitchen (complete with casual seating and nearby breakfast nook) flows easily into the hearth-warmed family room. Buyers can relax in the extensive master suite, privately located to the right, where dual walk-in closets and a well-appointed bath await. Three additional bedrooms, one of which would make a great study, rest on the left side of the plan. A future bedroom suite and a rec room offer space for expansion upstairs.
