When building a custom home, a highly detailed blueprint can have many variations. These plans show the layout of each floor of the house, but in addition to your customizations, a detailed blueprint can seem overwhelming. In order to organize your thoughts when buying a custom home, here is a list of some things you’ll need to have in your home design. A typical design includes:
1. Garage Plans
Of course, it is important to house the number of vehicles in the household, but today’s garages do much more than keep the car out of the rain. For a homeowner that want’s a tool bench or workshop in their garage, make sure to customize extra room for a work space into your design.
2. Deck Plans
A deck might look confusing on a blueprint, but many homes have a corresponding deck plan complete with deck framing and deck elevations. If you’re planning to choose a lakefront home plan, a deck would be a great addition that would allow you to take advantage of the breezy and beautiful wilderness that surrounds you. Decks are also perfect for entertaining house guests. Whether your home is holiday central, or you just enjoy having some intimate friends over on a Friday night.
3. Outdoor Project Plans
We might not all be able to afford a gazebo in our backyard, but it is important to think about a landscape plan to complement your new home. While a comprehensive landscape blueprint might not be necessary, using a zone map with clear instructions can help organize what you want your new lawn to look like.
4. Foundation and Basement Plans
Don’t forget about the basement. Usual blueprints will include a foundation layout including concrete walls, posts and notes. Of the home has a basement, it will also be shown.
5. Detailed House Plans
Detailed house plans are essential to building a custom home. Large-scale views of a custom home or cutaways of the foundation may show important changes in floor, ceiling, or roof heights. These sections show exactly how various parts of the house fit together and are valuable during construction.
