Dream A Little
The first step is to dream a little. Don't be too realistic, or practical
at this point of the process. There are quite a few good online resources
to get you started.
Now would be a good time to jot down some ideas and perhaps draw some
sketches of what you would like your new home to look like and what features
it should include. Some of the things you can include are the following:
- What style home, ie- Rambler, Daylight Basement, 2-Story, Multi-Level.
- Features inside your home, ie- Number of bedrooms, media room, wet
- Use of space, ie- Open, flowing spaces. Or traditional, well defined
After you have a rough idea of what you want your new home to be, take
a look at Alan Mascord
Design Associates, Inc. as a good source for quality home plans. We
highly recommend Mascord because of their attention to detail and state
of the art design practices.
The next step is to explore the Pacific Northwest, to determine where
you would like to build your new home...
