Consider the resale value of your new home and how you can add value into the house plans for your future. Even though you are far from having it built, thinking ahead can not only improve your current lifestyle but can also result in realized gains later.
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.
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.
Check your house plan for placement of windows to see if they will provide adequate privacy from your neighbors windows and yards.
