For many people, building a custom home is a dream. Imagine being able to whip up a house that fits you to a tee, with every feature designed around your unique requirements! Most people assume, though, that this is just a pipe dream- after all, construction companies have their house plans, and are they willing to modify those each time? Well, the answer is yes! Grayson Homes go out of their way to give customers exactly what they are looking for, so if there’s anything extra you want to be included when building a custom home, just say the word.
It is also important to understand that the total square footage of your new home refers to the finished portion of your house plan. Finished living areas are generally described as covered with sheetrock and wallpaper or paint. A heated area is also a good indicator of finished space. Areas like garages, porches and attics are considered unfinished and are not calculated in the total square footage of your home plan.
Another important factor to consider when planning on buying a new house plan is how many cars you currently own. Will there be adequate driveway space as your family grows or parking if you entertain large groups of people? If you have already purchased your house plan you might need to look for building lot that will complement that design.
If it isn’t, then don’t worry. There’s another simple modification to house plans that will also give you some extra space: adding a room over the garage. The great thing about this is that if the garage is separate from the main house, then the additional bedroom has a feeling of independence- perfect for older kids who don’t want their parents cramping their style!
