Narrow lots generally require a house design that rises up instead of spreading out, whereas, wider shallow lots can be ideal for broad one-story house plans.
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.
The geographical and natural landscaping features of your lot can have a large impact on the style of home plan you will need to choose. Therefore, while choosing a house plan, consider whether your lot space will provide a lawn area for outdoor games and sports or if you will need to reserve enough lot space to include pools, interesting landscaping or gardens. If you`ve already purchased your building lot you will need to consider these factors and tailor the house plan that you choose to meet those needs and requirements.
Scenic lots or sloping lots with spectacular views will inspire you to choose a house plan that includes large panoramic windows and roomy outdoor deck space which will allow you to enjoy those wonderful sunrises and sunsets.
