FAQs About House Designs

How to design a house

If you are wondering how to design a house from scratch, and you don’t know where to start, we can help. Our carefully made home design plans have been crafted to take the pressure off you.

There are several important factors to consider when designing a house.

1. The area. What area have you got to work with on your building site? Are you planning to build on a mountainous, wooded, or coastal terrain, or a sloped or narrow lot, for example? What type of soil will your foundations be built on? What specific requirements will you need to factor into these questions; for instance, do you want solar panels to be installed, or facilities like a walkout basement or habitable loft? Our expert home designers will find out the answers to all these questions and more when crafting your unique house plan.
2. The size (square footage). There are no limits to the square footage we can work with. From big to small house designs, we cater for all clients. In the past, we have worked on everything from small timber-frame cabins to large luxury home designs. This means we’ve got you covered, no matter what the size of your dream home is.
3. Content. Many people who come to us are interested in modern house designs, with open floor plans that combine the living room, dining and kitchen areas. Others come to us looking for simplistic, rustic designs. Our clients have unique needs, and want different things from their homes; be that a plush office, a large private patio area, or a home with multiple ensuite bathrooms. At Great House Design, we work with our clients to turn their vision into a reality. We do this by factoring in all their specifications, making sure every room matches its designed purpose, and ensuring the overall flow of the home is intact.
4. Architectural features. Good house design blueprints include all the architectural features you intend to include in your new home. These could be anything from fireplaces to timber features, or even a grand Roman bath. All our online designs allow for customization, which means you can add any special architectural features to our current designs.

Designing a house from scratch can be an adventure, and working with our team can be a lot of fun. Our house designers are experienced in creating high quality home designs that take each of the above factors carefully into consideration. We will make sure each and every room of your new home meets your specifications and lives up to your unique vision.

How much does it cost to design a house?

Are you wondering how much designing a house costs?

Generally speaking, the average architect design fees usually range from 7-10% of what it will cost to build your new home.

At Great House Design we charge by the square footage, which ends up being just 1-2%. Our house designs are affordable, and created with the aim of taking the stress out of the house design process for you. With our custom and premade home designs, we work with you through the entire design and planning process. We take all of your personal circumstances and needs into account to deliver the perfect finished home plan for you. We will go back and forth with you until you are completely satisfied with the final design. Because of the complexity and subjectivity of this process, final costs will vary.

How much do house designs cost?

Why are house plans so expensive?

Though some will say that small house design plans cost less than large luxury home designs, it is not always this straightforward. There are different factors to consider when calculating house design costs, such as the materials being used and the amount of time being spent on a design project.

But house plans don’t have to break the bank! There are plenty of affordable house plans to choose from on our site to suit a smaller budget, no matter what size the property is.

Custom house plans are generally more expensive than pre-designed house plans, because our expert team requires more time to tailor the plan to suit your exact needs.

Who designs house floor plans?

Different people work in our design team. This includes professional home designers with decades of experience. Our team will cover every base and leave no stone unturned when designing your house. Whether it’s ensuring the rustic beams across the ceiling of your master suite are in place, or your living room comes complete with that bay window you’ve always dreamt of, our house designers have you covered.

Are online house designs any good?

Our online house plans are just as high quality as our custom home design plans. This is because they’re created by the same team of expert home designers. Online house designs and plans provide a quick and easy solution for those who already know what they’re looking for.

What is the least expensive type of house to build?

The cost of your house plan will largely depend on its size, and the materials that will be used to build it. Because of this, small house designs are often a lower price than designs for large houses, though this is not a strict rule.

Log and timber frame homes generally cost more as it takes more time to develop these styles of plans. A rancher or slab on grade is generally the least expensive to develop.
