Choosing a House Plan for Your Dream Home : First things first, when choosing a house plan you must first find the land that you will be building on. Not all designs will look right or even fit on certain lots, so in order to insure that your dream home will be a good fit for your lot, you must first purchase the land on which you will be building. When purchasing the lot, you have several things to consider. Location - As the real estate agents say - location, location, location. Whenever you are dealing with Real Estate, the location is a very important factor in deciding for or against a particular lot. You will of course want a lot that is within a reasonable distance from your place of business. If you have children or plan to, you will want to research the schools as well. Also, you will want to make sure that the land that you are investing in is going to rise in value. Investing in land in an area with upward growth potential is a great way to insure the value of your property will rise. Budget - Your lot must fit within the budget you have set for yourself. You must also take into consideration whether you are purchasing raw land or whether the lot has already been prepped for building. A piece of property can initially seem like a bargain until you later find out that allot needs to be done before you an get a permit to build. Community - You want to choose a community that has zoning laws that allow you to build the type of home you are planning on. Some communities have home owners associations that may need to first approve any improvements you want to make on your land. If this will bother you, you nay want to seek out a lot that is not under the jurisdiction of such associations. Once you have purchased the land that you plan to build on, you are ready to select a house plan for your dream home. If you are looking to purchase a pre-made home plan, you may have to make some small compromises as your ideas may not fit into what is available. Another alternative is to purchase a pre-made house plan and later have it modified to suit your particular needs and tastes by a architect. Do know that this will not be without a rather sizable expense, however it may still be more cost effective than if you were to have a plan built from scratch. When choosing a house plan, you will want to keep in mind several key points... Your Families Needs - If you have children, you will have additional considerations than singes or retired people. You will need to know how many bedrooms and bathrooms your family requires. Do you need a playroom for your children? Do you or your partner need a home office room? Now is the time to think towards the future and the upcoming needs of your family. When in doubt, build bigger. Nothing could be worse than building the home of your dreams only to find ten years later that it no longer is suitable for your growing family. Talk with your partner and decide now what your family needs may be and plan accordingly. Building Code - As with anything, you can expect to face a significant amount of red tape as you plan to build your dream home. You need to talk with your contractor and make sure that the house plan that you choose will not conflict with your local zoning laws and home owners association rules and regulations. Budget - You should know by now how much house you can afford. Dont sway from the initial budget that you have set for yourself. There is a wide selection of unique and architecturally stunning house plans within every size range. Style - You probably already have in mind the style of home that you want. If not, browse through some pre made house plans to get an idea of what type of style you and your partner like the best. Try to picture the different styles on your lot. Does it look like a good fit? As you can see, choosing a house plan for your dream home is a fun, but serious matter. Try to plan ahead at all times and think towards the future. It takes allot of work before you even break ground, but in the end it will all pay off when you are left with your own dream home.
Your Dream Home Plans on the Waterfront : Imagine the most beautiful body of water you have ever been lucky enough to see, and then imagine yourself living in the most spectacular waterfront home that could possibly be built. While this might not be an achievable dream for most of us, it sure is still nice to dream once in a while. If you were to put together your dream house plans for your waterfront property, what would you include? Lets say that your dream house is located on a lake with some very desirable beachfront. The lot would have to be big enough to fit a house that would have at least five bedrooms and even more bathrooms! It would also have to be large enough to include the spacious pool, athletic court, hot tub, guest house, huge garage, gated entry and more. That also doesnt include the dock and the luxury yacht to go with it! All of this is great for the outdoors, but what about the interior of your dream home plans? When you first step into the foyer with slate flooring, you will be greeted with two spiral staircases that lead you up to the second story. The kitchen will be sprawling with some of the most unique granite that you have ever laid eyes on. The appliances will be nothing but the best of the best as well. The master bedroom will be large enough to fit a king size bed and have extra room for a separate sitting area. If you are feeling rather spunky you could also include a fireplace in there if you wish. There will be a double set of French doors that lead their way out onto a terrace with a breathtaking view of the lake with a mountain in the background. The master bath will be the best part of your luxury house plan. Not only will it have his and her sinks, double vanities, two walk in closets and bear claw tub, it will also have a steam shower with plenty of shower heads. If you are imagining your ultimate dream home, you will have the ultimate master bathroom. This is where you can really revel in your luxurious desires. Since we are only dreaming, this is the time for the most expensive materials to be used. Granite or tile will cover just about every square inch and the detail in the wood work will be superb. The lighting fixtures themselves will cost thousands of dollars. No expense will be spared in this dream! While it sounds like the best dream house plans ever designed at House Plans and More, this is hardly a possible reality for most of us. Since we probably will never own a waterfront home that costs millions of dollars, we will just have to live vicariously through our luxury house plan ideas instead. If you really want to check out some great dream home plans, check out House Plans and More to browse through some really luxurious homes.
