Our Floor Plan

For a while now I have been dreaming of building a house. As an interior designer and someone who drafts house plans I see a lot of houses and floor plans. Over the past year or so I had been putting together a list in my mind of the things I would include in my house if we were ever to build one. I knew I wanted a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom ranch style home with an unfinished basement, and I wanted to stay around 1600 square feet. Some of the more specific things I wanted was I didn't want the master bedroom on the opposite side of the house as the kid's bedrooms. Someday, when my kids are older, that might be nice, but with my babies I don't want to have to walk across the house 3 times a night. Another specific thing I wanted was a nice master bathroom with a separate shower, tub, and a separate toilet. I think living in a house for 5 years with one tiny bathroom made me a little greedy for a nice master bathroom. :) So with all those things in mind I started looking online at floor plans. My favorite floor plan was from Eplans. It was this almost 1600 sq.ft beauty.

So I took that floor plan and started drafting it up. I changed a few things though. I took out the formal dining area and added stairs to the basement and a pocket office off of the family room. I also changed the kitchen and laundry room layout a little.

After that the plan sort of just sat for a while until we sold our house and knew we were ready to build! Then, we started to make more changes. My husband changed jobs so we needed an actual office for him to work from. So we moved some more stuff around and ended up with this.

Not much of a change, just the office and stairs moved a little. After we had that we thought about it for a while and decided we didn't like how much the garage stuck out in front of the house so much, so we moved it to the side of the house. We also decided for resale value we wanted a third car garage. So I rearranged a few things again and after a month of changes we ended up with the final product!!

This is the front elevation.

The back elevation. We have a walk-out basement.

SO, I guess my point of all this is sometimes finding the perfect floor plan involves a long process. Our builder, Guardian Homes in Idaho Falls, builds custom homes. They can start with any floor plan you find, and their in-house draftsman can make any and all the changes you want. It's really a great way to go!
And here is where our house is being built.

I can't wait!

It looks great! I love all the different options! The only thing I worry about with the newest plan is walking through the laundry into the house. I have that in my house now and it drives me crazy.

Building a dream house is one of the most exciting phases in one's life. You did the right thing to wait until your old house was sold before working on the building of your new one. At least now, you have no strings attached in selling the house, and you can focus more on what awaits you with the new one. I hope that things are coming along nicely. Cheers!

I love this house plans and I always plan on building my own house with my own design but I'm not good at it. So, I ask a friend to do a blue print for me on this. It's just a plan though but I'm hoping soon it will come true. I look for cheap house for sale in the Philippines to settle and build my dream house!
