Steps to Designing Your Home

Posted by at 3:40 PM

Inspiration – look at homes you love and tour models to make your dream home real. It’s easy to imagine a house but more difficult to draw out a floor plan – with the accessibility of models, numerous floor plans, and endless options this can become an exciting journey.

Don’t forget to take pictures while touring models or homes in your neighborhood, at builder locations or at the Wisconsin Homes factory.

Organization – compile the images and floor plans that you have gathered – consider the ideal number of bathrooms, bedrooms, etc. Adjust floor plans to meet your needs to create the spaces that you have always imagined. Consider materials and research your options.

Location – find a lot and consider the presence of your dream home in that space; there may be changes you want to make to accommodate structures/environment surrounding the lot. You will want to consider how much lawn will be remaining after building and what will be ideal for you and your family. Think about the presence of hills, trees, noise, accessibility of utilities, and zoning.

Design – Wisconsin Homes works with various builders that will assist you in designing your dream home – they will work with your floor plans or sketches to suit your needs in creating your customized home. Visit our “locate builder” page to find the nearest dealer/builder.
