A multi-story home is a dwelling with more than two storeys. A multi-story unit has many benefits. You can take advantage of building upwards instead of outwards. This is known to be more energy-efficient and save on space. Both of these benefits amount to financial savings.
You also have a lot more room for upgrades and improvements with a multi-story home. You could even turn a floor into a separate apartment and rent it out. Being on the premises would make it easier for you to manage.
And if you just want the space for yourself, that’s perfectly fine too. Portrait Custom Homes will create a dwelling around your distinct preferences.

What Are The Advantages Of a Multi-Story House?
There are many advantages to a multi-story house. These include:
Better privacy – With a third or even fourth floor available, there is more space for you to get away and have some time to yourself. On the third floor, you will also have more privacy from neighbours or people coming to your home.
Better Views – Being elevated bodes well to have opportunities for views, depending on where your home is located.
More Design Options – If you are building a new construction home, there are far more possibilities in terms of design. Even if you are remodelling or adding on to your home, you have more floors to work with.
What Are The Disadvantages Of A Multi-Story House?
There are some cons to the multi-story house too. These include:
Stairs – Stairs in your home are simply an obstacle for anyone who has trouble walking up and down them. They also pose danger to small children.
Utility Costs – Cooling and heating multiple stories versus one story is going to cost you more, especially when considering the science behind the fact that heat rises and cold air falls.
More Maintenance – More square footage equals more space to clean, more room for things to break and more maintenance in general. When comparing one-story homes vs. multi-story homes, the latter will require you to break out that ladder that we referenced above
What Is The Most Expensive Part Of Building A House?
The most expensive part of the custom home costs is the cost of the finished lot. Based on the average custom home costing $428K to build, the average finished lot cost will be around $92K. This cost may be lumped into what’s known as the sales price, which is the most expensive part of any new home building budget. Portrait Custom Homes is the best multi-story home builder Perth, however, and can lay out all costs beforehand.
When Should I Build A Multi-story House?
This is going to come down to your needs and preferences. A double-story house is enough for most households. A multistory house (more than two stories) is usually something of a luxury purchase for a person that has very distinct preferences.
However, it’s better to build a multi-story in an area full of other multi-stories. It’s also worth noting that some construction companies use the term multi-story differently, to mean the same as a double-story house. But generally, a house with only one floor is a single-storey, with an upstairs is a double-storey, and a house with 3 floors is a multi-storey.
