Design Your Own House Plans

If you want to design your own house, here are some things you should do to before you get started:

1) Look around your neighborhood and many others to get ideas of what you like and don't like. There is no better way than to see something you like right in front of you. Things look different in reality than on paper so if you can find what you want and see what it looks like already built, then you are well on your way.

2) Look through lots of home books and magazines to get ideas.

3) Make sure you get input from every family member to find out what they want. The more ideas you can incorporate from family members the better. Designing your own house can be fun if you involve everyone.

4) Now that computers are everywhere and so easy to use, rather than draw your plan on paper you should take advantage of a 3D computer program. The advantage of these programs is that you can see your house from any angle and come as close to what it will look like in reality. One of the most populare products on the market for home design is Punch Professional Home Design Platinum™ Version 12 MSRP for $99.99.

5) Once you have what you think you want, take it to a professional to find out how well it all fits together. He (or she) will be able to make any needed sugestions and modifications.
