It is also important to understand that the total square footage of your new home refers to the finished portion of your house plan.

Identify the fundamental elements of your new build or structural renovation. Don’t rush headlong into the most exciting part, which is the actual design of your floor plan, but start off with the basics. Spend some quality time identifying your building needs and, even more critical to your success, your limitations.
