Where exactly within New England will your new home be built? Is it your dream to build a home right next to the water in, say, Portland, Maine, or farther inland, in, say, Springfield, Massachusetts? If you’re building right next to the water, consider selecting an elevated house plan to protect against potential flooding.
Also, consider your lot. If you’re building on a hill and wish to maximize indoor and outdoor living space, a home plan with a walkout basement might be your best option.
Most importantly, consider your daily needs. For instance, if you have five kids, you’ll probably want a relatively large house plan. On the other hand, if you’re an empty nester looking for a more affordable house plan, a smaller design might be your best bet. Moreover, if you’re building in New England, you’re likely to get a good amount of snow in the winter. That means you may want to choose a house plan with a mudroom (sometimes written "mud room") so wet and muddy clothing can be taken off a stored prior to reaching nice carpet or hard wood floors.
In the below collection you will discover a huge range of sizes—from cozy 1 bedroom cottages to expansive mansions soaring past 8,000 square feet. You’ll also find many home plans featuring cool, modern amenities, like open floor plans, big kitchens, and luxurious master bedroom suites.
