You’ve been thinking about building a new house for a while now, and you’ve finally decided that you’d like to make that dream home a reality. But you aren’t sure at this point of the type of home that would be best for you and your family. What steps can you take to make an informed decision?
One of the first things you can do as you consider building your dream home is to investigate the many types of homes online. If you look up house plans, you’ll find a wealth of not only floor plans for homes, but also many different types of homes as well. You’ll be able to browse house plans for a number of different types of homes – whether you’re looking for a traditional cape or cozy bungalow, or something more expansive like a Colonial or Victorian style home.
Also, go for a drive in residential areas and look at the different types of homes. What are you most drawn to? Comfy little ranches? Historical brick homes? Convenient manufactured homes? Or is a log cabin home in the middle of nowhere more your style? You can also save clippings from realty catalogs that come in the paper, or architect magazines. Anything that inspires you can help you as you determine the right type of home for you, your family and your budget.
Once you determine the type of home you want to build, you’ll need a house plan to go along with it. That’s the time to get in touch with an architect. The Home Builders and Remodelers of Mohawk Valley can help. We have a number of architects in our membership who want to help you build your dream home.
