Research your current market building costs. Contact a local realtor or custom home builder and discuss the average cost per square foot to build a home of the style you like. Now understand that this will only be an average because they can't possibly guess your personal tastes and the finish materials are a large part of any new home cost.
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 poorly laid out floor plan can create serious issues with financing if extra money has to be borrowed or things have to be corrected later. The next step is to consider the floor plan of the service centers, if there are any. These should be set near to where the customers are going to be while still being out of the way. You may also want to consider the fact that they may need to be near the kitchen.
When considering the floor plan the first thing to do is consider the menu. The menu and the type of food that is being created actually decides the lay out of the kitchen. The first thing to do is consider the flow of traffic for food preparation. Then the flow in and out of the kitchen needs to be considered. This is even more important than the actual table layout of the restaurant itself. A mistake here could end up costing money to repair as well as lowering the available profit margin.
