If you’ve ever been house hunting and found that singular rooms of a house were great but as a whole, it left a lot to be desired, a custom home may be the right choice for you. When you build a custom home, you have free reign to create a home that fits your exact needs. When you build a house, you have a lot of options you will need to consider, including planning the layout. When making your floor plan, there are several things you should consider depending on a few key attributes.
The first thing you will want to think about as you start creating a floor plan is how will the land and plot interact and affect your home. If you are building a house on a plot in the city, for instance, your design might be narrower and taller than a house in the country. Additionally, you must consider the landscape around you. The direction the sun is facing, the presence of trees and landscaping, and the buildings around you can all affect how to best orient your new home.
What’s Your Lifestyle
As you consider the lifestyle you lead and hope to lead you may find that there are considerations to your layout. If you intend to spend a lot of time playing outdoors adding a larger mudroom to change in and a sunroom to bring nature inside are both options, you may enjoy. Alternatively, if you intend to start growing a family, adding space for a play-room might be more critical.
How Long Will You Stay?
One of the biggest mistakes that those building a custom home make is not thinking far enough ahead. Particularly if they intend to stay in their home as they age. Opting for a master bedroom on the first floor, ensuring that railings are wide enough if a chair elevator needs to be added, these are all options that should be considered.
