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.
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?
When choosing your house plan it is important to choose one that not only meets your individual needs but also considers your building lot, natural landscape and whether it will be marketable to future buyers in the event that you choose to sell the house at some point in the future.
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?
