Many people buy books offering a broad selection of plans only to be disappointed with the fact that they cannot easily narrow down the search to only plans that fit their needs. Hopefully you will choose to simplify this process with a system that helps you narrow down just the house floor plans that fit your actual needs. This is most easily performed with online plan sites. However there are pitfalls to this process also.
Sites like Stanley Furniture are great to find furniture for every room including the living room, dining room and bedroom as well as case goods and accents. It gives their exact dimensions and where the furnishings can be purchased locally. Have fun making several plan options if possible. Try the basic sofa and loveseat on one plan and try a sectional or a sofa with chairs on another. Get creative by breaking up larger rooms into a couple of sitting areas. See if the dream of a chaise can become a reality on plan for the bedroom. Extra homework is important before heading out to shop for decor.
Colonial floor plans introduce symmetry, with doors that are centered along with a sensible array of windows. The second story is very similar to the main floor in terms of size. They have brick_facing exteriors or clapboard siding, typically. The contemporary colonial house will have modern facilities.
If the floor plans are being made by a specialist such as an architect or engineer, the homeowner has the advantage of experience and expertise on his side. However, no one knows the needs of a home better than the homeowner and a customized design can be put together by the individual concerned.
