Although the original plot may be quite small the buyer may want to have a lot of garden space available. Of course in this instance he will recommend that the house be built with several floors to fulfill the requirements of room space while preserving the garden as requested. On the other hand if room in the house is more important or maybe the buyer has some physical infirmities which have to be addressed then a long and low slung building may be the answer. The initial meetings with the professional will take in all the details of how many family members there are their requirements etc and how much space should be given over to living rooms bathrooms and kitchens etc. Once this is done the fun begins by choosing the finishes to each room.
Youve decided you want to build a new home. Where do you start? First we suggest you purchase your land as this will surely impact the design of your home. Second start putting your ideas together before visiting your architect. Start with a vision of your new home. Is there a certain architectural style you prefer? Colonial? Cape? Saltbox? Farmhouse? From there start with the basics in home design. How many bedrooms will you need? Do you want a Master Bedroom with or without a Master Bathroom suite? Will it be located on the first or second floor? If this is a vacation home which will become your retirement home you may prefer to have the main rooms located on the first floor for easy access in later years.
For instance if you have a large laundry room now and you only really use half of the space mark it as a potential space saver. Anytime you reduce the square footage of your new home you will save money in initial material costs but in energy costs over the life of the home as well. A home fulfills many purposes but it can also satisfy numerous personal aesthetic and emotional requirements that can be difficult to describe in words. In starting to imagine your home design it will help your architect if you identify and communicate how you want each space to feel.
While each architectural design firm has their own unique approach to their work it is important to find a home architect that has architectural services that fit your needs. You need to be clear on your needs and goals when you are searching for the right architectural design company for your project. This way youll be sure to get the architectural services that you need. Some of the main questions you need to answer when looking for a residential architect include: do you need more space? What activities will go on in the new space? What is your budget for the project and how will it be financed? Will you be doing some of the work yourself? Once you have your questions answered and you know what you need and want you can begin the process of choosing the right architectural services for your project.
