Affordable and fun, our plans are suited to you and your family. A word from the house plan designer..."It all starts with the land; the house must look and feel as if it grew from the ground. It must relate to its surround; becoming one with the environment. The key is 'site orientation'. I love soft and fluid lines combined with masculine lines; a perfect marriage; Space, or the illusion of it; the feel, the natural flow, and most importantly, the human factor.
Cost is always a factor, whether or not you are planning to build a tiny house or a mansion. No matter the size of the house plan or your building budget, taking control of the structural design is how to control cost. I prefer to see where the money is spent. Hidden beams can eat up the budget, and are there due to poor planning. I would rather see a curved glass wall than a complicated roof line as I drive up; simplicity in design."
The style of your house plan should compliment the actual building site, or the property as well as the surrounding landscape and structures. For example, a ranch style home, or a one level home works best on a level or flat grade. If this style house plan were built on a sloped grade, there would be a tremendous amount of waste in foundation wall. A split level or lower level walkout requires a sloped grade. If this style house plan were built on a flat grade it would require a tremendous amount of retaining walls. The more extreme the slope; the more extreme the structure complexity.
You would not want to build a three story contemporary plan in a cluster of one level traditional homes; nor would you want to build an English Tudor amidst a cluster of Urban home designs. Your new floor plan should represent your personal preferences and lifestyle, but most importantly, your house plan design will need to be built within your budget.
