Prevailing loan programs of the day made getting a home loan with no money down easier than it ever had been in previous years. Soldiers returning from World War II wanted to settle down and begin raising families. With the demand for homes at an all time high, the simple form and lack of detail made the ranch house floor plan much faster to build than a stately Tudor style home. Formal foyers and spiral staircases were discarded and replaced by level entries and single story plans.
We are going to assume here that you have already looked into your financing options and have a good idea of the amount of your budget you can apply towards the actual building cost of your new home. Begin with this amount and deduct 10% right off the top. You will thank me for this advice in the end. Everyone goes over budget during construction, even the financial nerds can't control every little detail that comes along. Take this net building budget and divide this dollar amount by the average square foot cost to build you got from the realtor or builder. Since I hope they gave you a low and high range this will give you two new numbers. These numbers are the low to high total square footage house floor plans sizes you should be searching for. If you choose to look at multi_level house floor plans then you will be comfortable on the upper level of this number since your cost per foot will be lower.
Floor plans are as easy as following the lines on graph paper. A floor plan is a scaled version of a space on paper complete with furniture and accessories. The plan begins with taking proper measurements of a room and any furnishings that are to stay in the given room. A few simple supplies are needed to begin the journey of making a basic floor plan. A tape measure. Pencil. Scrap paper. Graph paper
The ranch floor plan is conventional and matter_of_fact. The roofs are low pitched with a large garage attached to the house. Ranch homes are single_storied. Split_level floor plans are not unusual.
