Designing Your Own Dream Home forrepparttar New Home Builder: What is your dream home? Do you have an idea of what it will look like? Defining a dream home is very difficult, especially if you have a spouse or significant other that has tastes different than your own. Although you might be able to agree on a floor plan, do you both agree on whatrepparttar 134951 purposes for each ofrepparttar 134952 rooms? My solution to this matter is simple. Brain storm together. Make it fun! After all itís your dream that you are talking about. Privately each of you collect floor plan ideas from other sources, and prioritize what you like. Listrepparttar 134953 top 10 bedroom floor plans, bathroom floor plans, kitchen floor plans and of courserepparttar 134954 floor plan layout styles. You can do this by researching these topics: Log Home Floor Plans, Model Home Floor Plans (which, byrepparttar 134955 way, utilize small spaces very efficiently), Kitchen Floor Plans, Apartment Floor Plans (another very good space effective plan), and various architectural floor plans. Collect your "top ten" sources from each of these plans and then select your top ten out of those. You will have a very comprehensible top ten list to discuss with your spouse or significant other. Keep in mind that you can make any roomrepparttar 134956 size you desire from these plans, but itísrepparttar 134957 concept and ideas ofrepparttar 134958 plans that you should be collecting.

You both then get together with your top ten lists and discuss why you really likerepparttar 134959 plans you choose. Make it fun! Make it a party if you want with friends and family, but you need to remember to be open minded and ďlistenĒ torepparttar 134960 each other since you both have your own proís and conís with each ofrepparttar 134961 plans. Surprising enough, eventually you will agree on a top ten between you. In fact you probably will have extremely similar plans picked out! I did this with my wife and found that in a few hours we agreed completely on our dream home! This wasrepparttar 134962 hardest part! (This method also works in determining baby names and other life critical significant other issues.)

Factors to Consider: Probablyrepparttar 134963 hardest factor to consider is financing availability and budget. You need to review your own current budget and evaluate howrepparttar 134964 new budget will affect your current life style. If you check your credit report and it is not what was anticipated, you might have to adjust your budget or takerepparttar 134965 necessary steps to clean it up. Since I am not a financial specialist, I would ask you to consult withrepparttar 134966 credit personnel at your local bank. Once your credit is cleaned up as much as possible, apply for a loan. Apply forrepparttar 134967 maximum amount you can get. Find out whatrepparttar 134968 monthly payments would be and see if that works in your budget. Make sure your monthly payments do not affect your ability to landscape and buy some interior design items and new furniture. A common mistake most people make is that they put everything in their home but leave outrepparttar 134969 funds and budget for interior design and landscaping. Always have available financing reserved for future emergencies. Do not put everything in your home and become house poor.
