When building a modern style house, the first thing to do is to get a fix on how many people will live in the house. Are you going to build it for your family. If so, do you need large spaces like terraces, gardens or a front yard that can be used for socializing or for your children to play. Alternatively, do you want a small modern apartment or a cosy prefabricated house that is perfect for two people. These become even more relevant depending on where you plan to build your house.
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.
