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.
Most new home owners prefer home plans with more privacy in the master bedroom and personal living spaces, others might need privacy in a home office space. Another important consideration is how much privacy would you want and need from other occupants and neighbors. If privacy is important to you, consider a house plan with an L or U shape design. These types of house plans can provide you with more privacy when building on an urban or suburban lot.

Where would you prefer the laundry room to be located and how large a space will it need? Do you have any hobbies or special interests that might require additional space or rooms to enjoy them? Will you have a need for a large workroom for messy or noisy projects? Do you enjoy gardening? You may want to include a mud room or utility room with a half-bath, for quick and easy cleanup. Are you a â€œpack-ratâ€ who needs lots of attic or storage space to store your treasures?
Floor plans provide an aerial, scaled-down illustration of a space. They can be comprehensive, like a house blueprint, showing all interior and exterior space, or granular, like an apartment floor plan, visualizing how a space might looking once it’s finished and furnished. Floor house plans are usually drafted by architects and used by builders and contractors, interior designers and real estate agents.
