Final cost estimates of the pre_drawn house floor plans are more likely to be precise because the particulars have been figured out. This means a list of materials has already been made out, for example. The chances of suddenly discovering that the building is beyond the budget after all are fairly small. Sensible buyers would happily save on architect's fees for designing floor plans.
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.
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.
A 'CAD set' helps one make extensive changes to the plan with the help of a design expert. It is comparable to the reproducible set, except it is in an electronic format. A 'study set' helps one ascertain if his home can be built within budget. The floor plans in this set include a view of the outside from all four sides, plus the main story and any additional stories. 'Single set' is for finding contractor bids, and this set of house floor plans does not incorporate a building license.
