Everyone loves options. These finish-now-or-later bonus rooms offer an unusual amount of space to expand without adding to the footprint of the home. 

Optional Apartment

Here's a plan with lots of possibilities for customization and future expansion. Want an exercise area in the master suite? How about another bathroom for the secondary bedrooms? The second floor can be finished to hold a studio apartment that's complete with a kitchenette, living room, and bedroom – perfect for guests or a live-in relative. Even the terrific outdoor spaces can be enhanced with an optional fireplace and fire pit. Don't miss the super-spacious kitchen. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Private Space Upstairs

European-style exterior elements and a courtyard-style garage approach enhance the curb appeal of this attractive plan. The main-level layout concentrates on views with not only a wall of windows in the great room but stunning bow windows in both the dining room and the master suite. Buyers will love the kitchen's abundant counter space and two islands. Upstairs, a fifth bedroom accesses an enormous bonus space that would make a great private living space for an older child.

An eye-catching stone turret and decorative trusses add lots of unique curb appeal to this home. Inside, the open layout makes it easy to move from the island kitchen to the family room and then out to the spacious lanai. The master suite also accesses the outdoor living spaces and includes a huge walk-in closet. Flexible features of the home include the game room off the breakfast nook (use it as a playroom, home office, or craft space), the workshop in the garage, and a trio of bonus spaces upstairs. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Here's a country home perfectly suited to the needs of today's families. On the exterior, an attractive metal roof tops the wide, welcoming front porch. The two-car garage is tucked away discreetly to the side. Inside, the island kitchen offers a snack bar and nearby breakfast nook, as well as easy access to the great room. The master suite includes a private bathroom with two sinks, a corner tub, a separate shower, and a walk-in closet. Need more space? The enormous bonus room upstairs can become almost anything.
