Lots of floor plan options become available in the 2-story format, including expanded wrap-around decks, lower level parking, and of course a bird's-eye vantage point for panoramic views.
As you've seen with all our Hale-8 and Hale-12 models, our unique self-supporting compression open-beam ceiling/roof system allows not only a beautiful overhead interior, but gives complete interior room design flexibility.
So, if you want lots of rooms, or lots of open space, or something in between, this is the building system which will meet your needs.
A 2-story Hale-12 is structurally engineered to accommodate all your interior floor plan ideas, and it offers the potential for sweeping panoramic views all around, from open or covered wrap-around lanais.
Here is a very popular floor plan, the 2-Story Hale-12, with 360-degree surrounding covered lanai extensions, giving lots of additional floor space and sweeping panoramic views all the way around:
In this home design, the lower floor has 3 bedrooms (with surrounding lanai) and a large bathroom with laundry facilities.
(Of course you can lay out your rooms in most any way you desire):

Here is an example of a 2-Story Hale-12 with a 3-Bedroom layout. On the lower floor, each bedroom can have its own bathroom and private covered entrance, and the upper floor is laid out with lots of windows and covered lanai to take advantage of the view:
Special recommendation for 2-Story homes... While requiring more materials to build the full wrap lanai, we feel it is a valuable contribution on a 2-Story home, as it adds much more coverage and protection from the elements for the very tall cedar walls on 2-story homes.
We recommend a lanai on all weather-facing sides of your 2-Story home, and suggest at least a longer roof overhang in any other areas.
Here is a design that includes 5+ Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Laundry a full 2-Car Garage, Workshop, Study and lots of sweeping views from the Living Area and Upstairs Bedrooms, with this large covered Lanai:
