Finding the Right Floor Plan for You
Whether you are building a modular or a manufactured home, one of the most important steps is to choose a floor plan to support your current lifestyle and accommodate any probable household changes. Other factors such as lot size, landscape and future marketability should also be factored into this decision.
When determining the size for your new home, start with a few basic questions about your current household situation.
- Are you planning to expand your family in the near future?
- How long will your children be living at home?
- Is there a possibility of extended family moving in with you?
Then lifestyle preference questions must be considered such as your need for entertainment space, a gourmet kitchen, a formal dining area or a large, open great room. Also, consider extra living areas in your plan for things like hobbies or working from home or even incorporating an outdoor living space.
After determining your space needs for your new home, take some time to consider your overall layout. One key factor here is your own need for personal privacy and/or the preference for everyone in the household. As well as integrating your lot layout with the flow of the floor plan to consider windows, doors and the placing of your kitchen and living area. Also consider the small but critical items such as the location of kitchen pantries, linen closets and laundry rooms.
Knowing the answers to these questions will help us to find the best possible floor plan for you and your family.
