Building Designers develop site plans in stages. They coordinate this with a civil engineers plat map and topography map. The primary role in the plat is to provide a guide of the property lines and land dimensions. This gives the building designer a frame of reference for the maximum width and depth of the home design.
A home builder plan is used by home builders who only need a bare minimum set of house plans. This generally includes the elevations, floor plans, foundation plans, and roof plan. It may include a typical wall detail or two as well. It is very basic and the residential building designer has no control over the final outcome of the architectural detailing.
Open floor plans increase social interaction. Whoever is in the kitchen doing the cooking or the post meal cleanup, can still get the job done while interacting with everyone else in the other rooms. This helps the kitchen person to feel less like a slave and more a part of the action.
Advantages to building your home yourself, and probably the most common reason, is the fact that you can put in your house whatever it is that you want, provided it is within budget. You can be conventional and follow standard home building. Go eccentric and create an artwork in the form of the house. You get to choose the color, style and layout too.
