House Planning and Future Agility For Changes Considered
By Lance Winslow
Most folks buy a tract home and they do not have their home built to their specifications. For those who do have the luxury of this option, and hire an architect they have more choices. One thing that everyone should realize is that no matter how great your home is when you first moved in, there will be changes you will want to make in the future.
You may wish to tap out a wall, add a new enclosure to the back patio, build another room off the garage or above the garage. You need to think of all this ahead of time and advise the architect those areas which are not quite sure of. This way in case you want to make changes later on after you've moved in or in your later years after the kids have gone to college and moved out you still can.
When House planning it makes sense to consider the future and to have the ability to make such changes; depending on where you put the bathrooms, the sewer hookups, and the main support structure pieces you might be able to give yourself many more options than you might realize. All too often, once the plan is done people think that they will be happy once the house is completed.
However, there is a big difference between designing a house and then actually having to live in it. If things are awkward you're going to want changes later, and every change you make will come with the challenges of additional complexity. I hope you will please consider all this when designing your home, because if you do, you will be very happy that you paid attention to such minor details in the future.
