It is also important to understand that the total square footage of your new home refers to the finished portion of your house plan. Finished living areas are generally described as covered with sheetrock and wallpaper or paint. A heated area is also a good indicator of finished space. Areas like garages, porches and attics are considered unfinished and are not calculated in the total square footage of your home plan.
The first thing we recommend is to make a list of the things that you liked and disliked about places you have lived and visited in the past. Once you have prepared a complete list of the most important attributes that you are searching for you can begin checking out lot locations. While searching for you ideal building lot, evaluate each lot based upon the qualities that you have identified on your list.
If you are not firm in your initial decisions, you may find yourself swayed by every new house design you see. In other words, you should be clear on the type of house you want, where you want to build it, and aware of any building restrictions in the area; otherwise, you might bounce from one idea to the next, lose any sense of forward momentum, become stressed, and ultimately be disappointed in the whole process.
Measure your current furniture to determine if there will be adequate walking space of at least 36 inches around furniture and clearance for doors to swing. Will the height of your furniture block windows? Does it provide enough wall space, nooks and areas for art and personal effects? Review the natural â€œtraffic flowâ€ of the house plan, the interior views from each room of the home as well as how natural lighting can be shared and utilized within the home.
