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.
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.
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.
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?
