Before choosing a house plan we suggest that you ask yourself a number of lifestyle and living needs questions. Are you newly married? If so, do you have plans to start a family? How many children do you plan to have? Is there adequate room in your house plan for expansion as your family grows?
Check your house plan for placement of windows to see if they will provide adequate privacy from your neighbors windows and yards.
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.
Another important factor to consider when planning on buying a new house plan is how many cars you currently own. Will there be adequate driveway space as your family grows or parking if you entertain large groups of people?
