Defining Your Fantasy Home

If you have been thinking of building a custom home, one of the first considerations will be the style that you want the home to be. Whether you want the home to reflect the tone of the community you wish to join, the region where you live, or your own personal preferences, BCB Homes is able to provide the style preferred. A few examples of architectural styles include the following:

  • Colonial Revival
  • Tudor Revival
  • Modern craftsman / Craftsman bungalow
  • Rancher
  • Farmhouse
  • Cape Cod
  • Queen Anne
  • Mediterranean Style
  • Mid-Century Modern
  • Contemporary

As you decide which style appeals to you, take the time to peruse various architectural magazines and online boards to take in all of the possibilities.

Just as you define the architectural style, you will need to determine the interior style that you prefer. The architectural style will generally influence the interior as well. Consider whether you want your home to be calm and welcoming or alive and exciting. The layout, features, rooms, and room dimensions will flow from these preferences.

Where you want to build will have a definite influence on plans. Defining the location must precede any planning. The vision that you have for your dream home needs to be planned in such a way that it works with the given plot of land.

Getting the layout of your home right the first time is essential. Once your home is built, going back and adjusting the layout itself will be a hassle that you can easily avoid. As you plan your home, you may need to adjust the layout a few times before it is perfectly lined up with your functional and style preferences.

The orientation and positioning of your home on your chosen location are also important and need to be thought of as connected factors. Size, natural light, shade, wind, and the available views should influence the positioning of various portions of the home.
