Custom home design in CT is a complex an exact process which our expert house designers can help you with. When considering CT home design, you have to start with the planning and design phase (home plans, house plans and floor plans). First off let's make a clarification in regards to home design home plans, house plans and floor plans all refer to the same thing (something that is often confusing to a new home buyer, someone looking for a home redesign, or a CT resident looking to have their first house built).
Your houses floor plan is a blueprint of how your home is or will be laid out. It incorporates the specifics or architectural design ensuring that all the features, fixtures and functionalities of your new home are up to your standards.
After thinking about what you want out of home and making a list of your priorities it's time to talk to a General Contractor so they can help you to begin the home design phase for your Connecticut home. Let's talk about the types of house plans that are available.
It may be tempting to use pre-drafted home plans to save money and get something that is already proven to work, however a new home is such a big investment often getting exactly what you want (especially in the design phase) is more important in the long term.
Getting custom designed floor plans form a skilled architect is going to be more expensive, but much more exact. Don't let the "more expensive" part fool you though. With an experienced architect and an honest contractor who understands your wants, needs and budget a custom drawn house plan can actually end up saving you money.
Since your contractor knows your budget and your vision they can advise both you and the architect before the design phase even starts. Since your contractor knows what you want and what you can afford they can make sure that your plans include a realistic design that will fulfill your needs and fit your budget, while pre-drawn home plans may include fixtures that exceed your budget without even knowing it (of course you can consult your contractor in regards to pre-drafted plans as well.)
