One of the most time consuming (and often frustrating) details involved in starting your new home journey will be selecting the right house plan. If you already have your plans, congratulations. If not, there are a number of steps you can take to start the process.

Begin by listing the rooms that you'll need in your new home. Next, list the room sizes you would like. If you need to, measure the rooms where you live now and use them as a gauge for size.

Do you want a single story or a two story home? For health reasons or convenience, you may want everything on one floor. Just remember, it's less expensive to build up than it is out. By adding a second floor, you only need to add walls, but building out means increasing the size of the foundation and roof. Both add significantly to the cost of a house.

The layout and/or terrain of your property may affect the design decisions. On hilly lots, a split level or walk out basement may work out best.

Whatever stage you're at in selecting plans, your Peet Homes salesperson will be glad to guide you through. We recommend that you don't spend money on blueprints before our initial meeting and a lot inspection. There is absolutely no cost or obligation for this service.

You can begin looking at plans either by purchasing plan magazines at bookstores or browsing the internet. You may end up selecting a plan that needs to be modified to fit your needs. We custom design our own blueprints to create the plan that's right for you.

We've included some links below to popular house plan sites. Some offer plans by multiple design companies, others design their own plans.
