I considered lots of different house plan ideas. I suppose it's only natural given the fact that I really enjoy home design. On this page I reveal all the home design ideas that were considered during our design journey. Some ideas are mine. Some are from friends and family others came from our architects. Because they're only ideas, the sketches on this page are rough and ready, doodles really. The vast majority of these house plan ideas didn't end up in the final design. My hope is that some of the ideas here that I didn't use will give you some inspiration for your home design.
There is nothing like getting excited about architectural features that look beautiful on a 2D floor plan and feel even nicer when standing inside of the finished home. Details like expansive floor to ceiling windows, skylights and other architectural features could have an impact on heating and cooling your home when your energy bill arrives. While it may not be a concern now, think of green cost savings on your architectural features of your floor plan for future living too.
