Whether you use a stock house plan or go with a custom home design, a house site plan is necessary. Your local building department will require it along with your plans to obtain a house plan building permit. With home plans, your builder will likely use the services of the civil engineer to locate the house on the site. However, using a building designer to provide this service is a more desirable option.
Open floor plans brighten the space. Where a traditional kitchen might be a hole tucked away in a windowless corner of the home, an open concept kitchen will likely connect it to the dining and living rooms and, consequently, windows. Natural light is always a bright boost to any room.
