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.
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?
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.
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?
