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.
Have you ever fell in love with a sports car just to be brought back to reality that you have a full family that will not fit in the car? The same mistake can be said when looking for the ideal home for your family. Safety should come first and many floor plan amenities such as balconies, stairs that don't have railings, expansive glass shower enclosures and other features may look great for adults but may need to be modified for families with small children.
