Open floor plans improve the efficiency of usable space. Living rooms are all too often a waste of space, or at least they can feel that way due to lack of real use in day to day life. But with an open floor plan, the great room concept transfers some of lifes activities from the crowded kitchen countertops into the visually now connected living room.
In todays fast paced, scattered, multi tasking culture, the open floor plan embodies what has become the norm of life. The family can be conducting different activities but still be physically together in the same space, the father can be cooking dinner, the son can be playing with his trains, and the mother can be paying the bills all at the same time and in the same room.
Stock house plans are the most common blueprint package on the plan selling market. Also referred to as designer house plans, they generally carry enough information to be considered a permit ready set. In addition to the normal things included in the home builder plan set, more construction details are added.
A custom plan set really has near infinite measure when it comes to developing a complete set of architectural house plans. A typical small plan set will contain as little as eight sheets while a larger set may include 20 sheets plus. The amount of sheets depend on the size and complexity of the home.
