The first thing we recommend is to make a list of the things that you liked and disliked about places you have lived and visited in the past. Once you have prepared a complete list of the most important attributes that you are searching for you can begin checking out lot locations. While searching for you ideal building lot, evaluate each lot based upon the qualities that you have identified on your list.
The most common feature that people ask for when building a custom home is a basement. Having a whole extra floor in your house creates a lot more living space, without extending the footprint of the house itself. From adding extra bedrooms to creating a utility area or “man cave”, basements open up a wealth of options for what you can do with your new home. In most cases, adding a basement on to house plans is simple, so long as the soil in the area is up to standard.

Improved insulation materials and techniques for walls and windows have made it more affordable to heat and cool homes with the changing seasons, but there are also house plans that can help optimize comfort in the home while lessening the blow to your wallet. Look for ENERGY STAR/Green house plans offered by companies like The House Designers to ensure you build the most energy-efficient home for your location. Choosing a design with a number of well-placed windows that can be used to create cooling cross ventilation will reduce the need for air conditioning in warmer locales, while a compact plan that minimizes the external surface area to volume ratio—think saltbox rather than sprawling ranch—will conserve heat during harsh winters. A little planning at the beginning can go a long way toward reducing bills in the future.
Before choosing a house plan we suggest that you ask yourself a number of lifestyle and living needs questions... Are you newly married? If so, do you have plans to start a family? How many children do you plan to have? Is there adequate room in your house plan for expansion as your family grows? Will you need guest rooms for overnight guests? What about additional living space in the future to possibly care for elderly parents or grandchildren? How do you plan to entertain? Do you want a formal dinning room and traditional living room for large formal entertaining, or do you prefer small-relaxed family get-togethers? Study your house plan and lot space to see if it is possible to expand the house plan living space in the future.
