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.
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.
Think about the time you presently spend in certain rooms in your home, and why. Some families like to make the kitchen the focal point for daily family gatherings and would require a large sunny eat-in kitchen with lots of space; others prefer a den or family room with lots of room for large sofas and a fireplace.
Most people with home ownership dreams imagine a single-family dwelling in the suburbs. This situation allows for a number of perks, like a yard and the exterior space in which to build an addition, if necessary. However, things are a little different for people who choose to reside in an urban environment, where a typical single-family house just wouldn’t fit in on a crowded block. When room is at a premium, the only way to expand and maximize living space is upward. A multi-floor, brownstone-type plan can provide the same square footage in a vertical arrangement for those to wish to maintain a city lifestyle, but are ready to put apartments behind them. And while this arrangement does not include a personal little patch of the outdoors, chances are there are parks nearby.
