It all starts with land
We are in the infancy of the building stages and it has started with buying a 10 acre parcel of land outright. In the past, we have always bought resale houses and now when we are living in a tract home (we got to pick out our selections in a conference room); we are at a disadvantage when it comes to having all if not most of the control when designing and building a home.
So we went ‘interneting’ and looked for house plans to give us an idea of what we like. We found what we think is a good plan for us. Us meaning couple who are planning to have a family in the near future, one person works from home full time. All family lives thousands of miles away and will visit from time to time. We wanted to have a first floor guest room for that. An outdoor living space is a must and we would like to have a pool built when the home is being built.
Below is the home plan we like. Any comments or critiques? Also, is it a good idea or not to have the pool built at the same time as home construction?
