Selecting The Perfect Floor Plan

BLOG- Floor Plans.jpg











Today on the blog we are talking about different types of floor plans. At John Houston Custom Homes, we offer many different types of floor plans that are suitable for a wide variety of needs. When selecting floor plans, it is important to assess the needs of your lifestyle, privacy, home design, and even accommodating furniture and belongings. 


8 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Selecting a Floor plan.

  • How much space do I or my family need?
  • Do I like the location of each room?
  • Will I have to buy another home in 5-10 years?
  • Can all of my furniture and belongings fit?
  • What floor plans best fit my design taste?
  • Do I need a 1-story or a 2-story home?
  • Is the floor plan offered in the neighborhood that I like?
  • Is the floor plan in my budget?


Take a look at a few of our John Houston Custom Homes floor plans to determine which one best suits you. For more view floor plans, view our website.
