Floor Plans Best For Empty-Nest/ Retiree Couples


Once your children are gone you no longer need as much room, but you still want everything to be high quality. Now that you’ve made it to this stage in life, you’ll want to kick back, relax, and enjoy your retirement life. Certain floor plans will offer a smaller, easy-to-maintain home, with comfortable amenities—ideal for retired couples. Our floor plans share a few common features, including an open floor plan, outdoor living areas, and a large master suite. Our floor plans are easily customized and range in architectural styles including Country, Contemporary, Southern and more.


We find that most empty-nesters prefer home designs that feature ranch plans, which have alfloor_planl living spaces on one level. However, we do offer and build two-story homes, often including an elevator. The highly requested open floor plan on the main level uses space efficiently by combining the main gathering areas and creating a common space designed for everyday living and entertaining. Additionally, its barrier free layout makes it suitable for retirees who may one day find themselves in need of a walker or wheelchair. Open floor plans are ideal for entertaining, and allows for outdoor living space to extend the living areas. Empty-nester open floor plans often include a spacious master suite with a large bath and shower with the option to add a seat or grab bars.


Our floor plans, while designed with comfort and style in mind, have easy to care for exteriors and interiors. When the time comes to enjoy life as an empty-nester, Putnam Builders will help you build the right home filled with practical and accommodating elements.
