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.
Formal or informal spaces _ if the homeowner is the kind of person who has to entertain constantly, formal spaces become a necessity. A spacious foyer with direct access to the formal living and dining areas and the outdoor areas beyond is a nice design. If there is sufficient space, formal and informal areas can be designed and separated so that one does not intrude into the other, this way a family with younger children can entertain guests as well as retain their privacy. Single storey or multiple floors _ some people like to have a luxurious spread out home on one level while some may like to keep bedrooms on a different level altogether. Besides, a double storey home offers more views of the outside at different angles better than a single storey home.
Technical difference _ In 2D floor plans, you, the designer, work on both y axis and x axis. Moreover, the design can be changed in up, down, right and left sides. On the other hand, 2D plans are a lot simpler and cheaper relatively. They can be used to show the right, top and front side of the object. Unlike 2D, designers work on three exis to create 3D floor plans. Actually, this is like molding an object that looks same no matter which angle you look at it from. With 3D technology, solid models and wireframes are created line by line.
During these same discussions ask questions like the cost difference to build a single level home as compared to a multi_level home. This is valuable information even if you are planning on a single level as your only option. The reason is that multi_level house floor plans costs are less per square foot and you may get more bang for your buck that way.
