Find Your Dream Home in Ultimate Plans' online collection of Home Plans

Using our substantial library of house plans, finding your perfect home is easy! But before you get going, be sure to make sure you have everything taken care of:

Assess Your Needs: When looking to build a home, you need to consider both your current needs and future needs. Will you want to walk up the stairs? Do you have a growing family? Will additional room be needed for children returning from college or elderly relatives needing your assistance? Prioritize these needs and use them as a checklist as you select a home plan.

Evaluate Your Home Site: Just about every home site has certain features that are unique. Is your site on the side of a hill? Does it have spectacular views? When evaluating your build site, you will find that certain architectural styles work better with the landscape than others.

Develop a Budget: The square footage of your new build will be the most significant factor in calculating the total cost of the build. It will also determine the type of floor plans you should consider. The easiest way to determine your estimated cost to build is to order an EZ Quote and have our experts price out labor and materials for the specific zip code where you intend to build. Or, to obtain your local average cost per square foot for new homes, contact your local chapter of the National Association of Home Builders. As a place to start, multiply the square footage of your new home by the average cost per square foot to determine a general cost. Be sure to add some padding to your budget for landscaping and contingency.
