If you have already purchased your house plan you might need to look for building lot that will complement that design. Here are some other questions to ask yourself as you search for a lot, remember, you will probably have to make a few compromises along the way, so rank them in the order of importance.
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.
Will you have a need for a large workroom for messy or noisy projects? Do you enjoy gardening? You may want to include a mud room or utility room with a half-bath, for quick and easy cleanup. Are you a â€œpack-ratâ€ who needs lots of attic or storage space to store your treasures?
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.
