Lifestyles and family needs differ from individuals and families depending on their cycles, stages and future plans for the home they want to design. Features that newly wed couples look for in a house plan are vastly different from the characteristics that a retired couple might find important.
Note that the terms house plans and floor plans tend to be used interchangeably, both in and out of the building industry. They do have different meanings however, with the latter being a scale drawing of one floor of a building, whilst a new house plan is a full set of construction plans for a building. The latter includes floor plans, elevations, sections, details, and specifications for construction.
Where would you prefer the laundry room to be located and how large a space will it need? Do you have any hobbies or special interests that might require additional space or rooms to enjoy them?
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.
