Building a new home provides an amazing opportunity to including everything you could need or want.
Many types of additions are easier and more affordable to add while the home is being built, rather than waiting until it is complete and performing a renovation. By adding features to the home during the construction process, you can save money and frustration in the long term. If you have made the commitment to build your new home, think about whether you would want one of these features at some point, and consider adding them now.
What To Consider When Planning The Garage In Your Dream Home

As you make plans to build your dream home, you will spend countless hours planning every little detail.
From the color of the walls to the position of the counters in your kitchen, each aspect is painstakingly chosen to ensure that the finished product — your home — is exactly what you want. Yet many people who are building a new home will focus so much on the living space that they forget about one important feature: the garage. Here are some considerations to make when you are planning the garage for your dream home design.

Take a look at most contemporary house plans and you will notice one thing in common: an open design. Open concept floor plans create one large space that flows from one area, like the living room, to another, like the dining area, with minimal barriers. Open floor plans take the “great room” and expand it even farther, combining the kitchen, study and even media room into one large open space. Why did this home plan develop, and is it just a passing fad like the formal dining rooms of yesteryear or is it a design that is likely going to stay?
Choose Bathroom Sink Styles for Function and Good Looks
Bathroom trends today cannot be easily characterized. Traditional formulas no longer apply, but there is a dizzying array of choice — from traditional bathroom vanities to a modern bathroom sink and tub that resemble sculpture. As you make choices for your new home, keep in mind that today’s bathrooms have evolved; they should be filled with personality. Whether it’s a spacious master retreat or a tiny powder room, there is no reason each bathroom can’t fulfill its primary purpose and make a style statement at the same time.
House plan buyers have more options today than ever before.
