Do certain functions of your home need special accessibility? Whether you have a live-in family member that needs extra space to maneuver or children who need extra wide hallways to run around, consider this factor when choosing a floor plan. Older homes tend to have narrower hallways, doorways and often door head heights. Remember renovating or altering non load bearing wall locations in the future is an option. Consider this if you fall in love with a floor plan but your family needs change over the years.
Suppose now, that you are purchasing an already built home or renting an apartment. Plans can be done in these situations as well. Most places will offer a floor plan for you to look at with the measurements of the space in the rooms. If this is not available you can draw your own plan.
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.
The ranch house floor plan was the American Dream in a box from the late 1940s to the mid 1960s. Sliding glass doors, kidney shaped swimming pools and back yard patios created a new informal way of entertaining guests. Though the ranch house floor plan was the embodiment of casual living, most homes of that era lacked architectural details that would make them memorable. By the 1970s, the ranch style house was replaced by the split level home with Colonial or English details.
