Home Floor Plan Designing for your future HomeWritten by Robert Kempe
Continued from page 1
Location of your new dream home is also a factor. Does neighborhood have houses similar to your style? Is there a variety of home styles? Do research on what type of neighborhood it is. Are there neighborhood, city or county ordinances that might affect your lifestyle? Make a list of all proís and conís of each of your choices of sites, narrow it down to your top 3 to 5 and seriously think about all factors that might influence your decision. You donít always want perfect size or shaped lot if there are ordinances that will effect how you use it. Be careful.
Make sure you have no surprises. Ask your real estate agent for a list of permits necessary to build your dream home on lot you chose. If they will not provide this, then go to your city and county and get list. Make sure your construction contactor provides all of these permits in their contract with you.
Local codes can also surprise a lot of dream home builders. Ask architect that does signed blue print on your floor plans to research local codes that may or may not affect your floor plan and dream home design. Homework pays. You can save yourself a lot of money and time if you do your homework up front.

Do you think you have found a genuine vintage high quality lucite purse? The best of designers were Rialto, Llewllyn, Gilli Originals, Patricia of Miami, Evans, and Myles and Maxim. These companies marked their handbags on inside with a stamp on metal frames or a clear label. These bags are now collectors items that sell for large sums but, unfortunately, some of clear labels have fallen off with age making absolute identification difficult. Check lucite purse over carefully and realize that, if you are buying for an investment, authentication is very important and if it cannot be proved as real, your investment is worthless.
