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.
A house is built with hands, but a home is built with hearts _ so the old saying goes. However, too much choice in the form of floor plans can be confusing sometimes. Therefore, an understanding of the different styles and how they suit the individual's needs and tastes is an essential step in the process of building a home.
Begin with measuring. Do a very rough drawing, on a piece of scrap paper for measuring purposes only, of your room showing walls and openings for doors, windows and fireplaces. Note where columns and built_in cabinetry are in the room as well. Take out the measuring tape and begin measuring a room writing down each measurement in the applicable space on your rough drawing. For a basic start, measure the length and width of your room.
Now the fun begins, and the first order of business is to choose the right floor plan that is consistent with the home you have pictured in your mind's eye _ and the property on which it will be built. Odds are you'll probably not open a magazine by chance and stumble upon a floor plan that has occupied your dreams all these years. Choosing a plan and refining the design to meet your needs will require some research, self_introspection and creative inspiration.
