A good plan is like a road map: it shows the final destination and usually the best way to get there. –H. Stanley Judd
H. Stanley Judd may not have been talking specifically about homebuilding plans, but what he said certainly rings true. We’ve been building custom homes in the eastern Rochester area since 1975, and we know you don’t get far without a good plan. But in addition to being a crucial guide for builders, floor plans can really help future homeowners envision what the home of their dreams might look like.
You want the flow of your home to fit your specific lifestyle. That kind of vision involves a lot more than simply style or look. It has to do with how the various rooms in your home connect and work together to make it a home where you’re comfortable.
Another thing we’ve learned in almost 40 years of building homes is that what works for one family may not be the right solution for another. You want a home and a plan that works for your life, not someone else’s.
That’s one reason we offer a wide variety of home styles, including Colonial, First Floor Master, Patio Homes, and Cape Style Homes. And, within each style of home, we offer multiple plans (we have almost 60 different plans for Colonial style homes alone!). You can check out a variety of different floor plans for homes in different styles here. It’s a great way to see which plan will best accommodate your particular lifestyle.
There’s a lot more to planning your custom home, however, than just picking out the floor plan that’s right for you. If you want to make sure you don’t skip some of the critical steps involved in building your dream home, we invite you to download our free Steps to Building Your Dream Home custom home guide. It’s packed with helpful information to get you off on the right foot.
