Research local building codes: Before you purchase plans, seek the advice of a building department official in your local jurisdiction of where your property is located. They can provide you guidelines on the height, size, and how far away from the street it can sit, etc. These guidelines are important if you plan on building a home in an urban environment and the plan you chose is too large and will not work with the local building codes. If you need help visit your local building department and they can walk you through the information you need.
Single story or multistory? Many families enjoy single story homes for the quietness of no overhead foot traffic noise. Some single story homes, or ‘Ranch’ style homes tend to group public rooms in the center and bedrooms and baths are located on the “wings” of the floor plan. Multistory homes give the added benefit of views to the outside instead of looking directly into a neighbor’s window. Multistory homes also give each family member their own space and room to have privacy over single story floor plans.
Decisions to be made are the size of each room, the number of rooms and the number of floors to be built. Will there be a basement or a fireplace, and where is the house going to sit on the lot. You could have a front yard or the house could be in the front of the lot with a yard in the back.
The layout of your home is probably one of the most significant choices you will ever make regarding your home.

Whether you prefer single story or multiple stories, and all the bedrooms on the top floor – choosing a perfect plan can be stressful. Here are 5 tips to help you decide on a plan right for your family.
