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.
Measure your current furniture to determine if there will be adequate walking space of at least 36 inches around furniture and clearance for doors to swing. Will the height of your furniture block windows? Does it provide enough wall space, nooks and areas for art and personal effects? Review the natural â€œtraffic flowâ€ of the house plan, the interior views from each room of the home as well as how natural lighting can be shared and utilized within the home.

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!
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.
