Building a house of your own choice is the dream of many people, but when they get the opportunity and financial means to do so, they struggle to get the right house plan that would transform their dream into reality. It is a long and complicated route from the first conceptualization of a home to the house designs, floor plans, elevations, cross-sections, structural designs, and finally the completed house plan that will ultimately form the basis of the construction of the home. Most people do not have a clue as to where and how to get house designs, or even to get the right designers who can do this job for them.
Consider the future? Are you just starting out and planning a family? Do you need a guestroom for visitors? Flexible house plans are probably the best option for you. You do not want your house to end being too big in the future. If it starts getting small, make sure you allow for expansion if necessary, and make sure it is according to your local zoning laws. How does the house plan you have chosen fit on the lot? If the lot is deep and narrow you do not want a shallow and wide house plan. Where will you place the house so that you get the maximum exposure to sunlight in the morning and in the evening? Make sure the windows are where they are supposed to be.
Will a lot of changes have to be made? There will be changes at some point to add a garage or change the size or shape of a room is fairly easy but you had better be prepared to pay a lot more for custom plans. When you are thinking of the rooms determine what percentage of total square footage will this room take u p. If the master suite takes up twenty percent of total space is okay if you are also going to use some of that space for a reading area. If not consider a plan with a smaller bedroom. In order to determine the total space of any room you multiply the length times the width and divide that by the total square footage of the home.
