When you are choosing a floor plan for your new home, you may start to feel overwhelmed with all the choices that are available. Many people are surprised and impressed at just how many options there are with a manufactured or modular home. Choosing a floor plan is the first step, and often the hardest for families. Here are a few things you should consider when deciding on a floor plan for your new home.
If you have chosen a place to put your home, you will want to look at the size of the lot prior to choosing a new home. Bring the dimensions of your lot with you when you visit one of Palm Harbor Homes’ many convenient locations. Our staff would be happy to assist in showing you homes that would fit the land you have available. If you don’t already have a lot picked out, we have many move-in ready homes and lots available.
The size of your family currently should be a big consideration for choosing the right floor plan. Even the closest of families need space every now and again. Your home should be the right size that works for every member of your family.
Think About Growth
A good home should grow with you. If you are thinking about adding to your family in the future, you may want to purchase a house slightly bigger. That way, as your family grows, you won’t run out of room.
Maintenance Costs and Time
The bigger the house, the more time and money it will cost to maintain. If you hate maintenance, you may want to scale down or put more money aside per month to help cover any general home maintenance costs associated with any home ownership.
Also, although your utilities are typically much less per square foot in a Palm Harbor home, you don’t want to pay to heat and cool rooms you are not using. So plan carefully.
