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.
One can safely assume that many pre_drawn house floor plans have already been tried and tested. That means construction hassles would have already been sorted out, which implies that any additional labor costs and uncertainties during the construction phase will not exist.
The informal lifestyle of California became popular as early as the late 1940s and magazines began to promote casual living as the ideal. Influences such as courtyards, patios and other Spanish colonial architectural details were embraced and played upon. What was known as the front porch or veranda, was moved from the front to the back of the house and heralded the arrival of a significant lifestyle change. Families now preferred the privacy of their back yard rather than sitting on the front porch watching traffic.
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.
