Whether you just started thinking about your dream home or have been thinking about it for years, the first step towards designing it should be a “wish list.” As the details of your home come together on paper and an analysis of costs is prepared, this “wish list” becomes your means of:
-trimming cost, if necessary
-adding features to get more out of your project
-planning ahead for future needs and possible improvements
On a pad of paper, list every feature you would love to have in your new home. Then, next to each item, classify each of the features into three categories.
Things you must have, such as HVAC (heating/air conditioning), garage, or quantity of bedrooms and baths
Things you would like to have, budget permitting, such as a home office, enclosed screened porch(es), fireplaces or Jacuzzi tub w/separate shower.
3. Future Add-ons
Things that you will add on in the future, such as a sunroom or greenhouse, decks or a finished basement.
Once you have your “wish list” finished, and you have found a general home design that you like, be sure to consider your daily lifestyle. Will the plan work for the way you live? Answering these questions will go a long way when designing a floorplan. This list will also help our designers create a plan that you’ll love.
