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.
Ensure the floor plans meet your needs: After you have confirmed the site, your budget, and local building codes look through floor plans that will fit your family’s needs. Size is important, but the way your floor plan flows and whether it’s open or closed can make a huge difference depending on your lifestyle.

The availability and increasing popularity of the automobile also defined the heyday of the ranch house floor plan. For the first time, the garage was moved to the front of the home. This was the first generation of home owners to have a highly prized freedom and mobility to work and shop in the city and then retreat to the suburbs to live. Because the suburbs removed the need to build houses close together, lots became increasingly larger and the square footage of the average house floor plan expanded accordingly. Ranch house floor plans generally accentuated the width of the lot.
Determine how much art work you have to hang: Art work, especially large pieces require space to hang. Since open floor plans are removing many of the dividing walls between rooms, the area to hang and display artwork will be minimal compared to a closed floor plan.
