Dream House Design 101

People looking to build a new home struggle with the design stages of the project.  Whether it’s a family’s vacation home or that once in a lifetime Dream Home, it’s something people want to make sure they get it right.   How do you even start to design your own home project?

In this digital age, most customers turn to the internet just as you did today.   Harvest Homes has over 45 standard model floor plans on our website.  Today’s website with over 48,000 plans can be overwhelming & all look the same.


If you want to get out of this process with your mind intact and a clear path to your dream home, follow these few simple rules:

  • Don’t spend days or even hours looking through websites for the “perfect” floor plan; Use the websites as a launching pad.
  • Find an overall design/ style that you like; if you do not like the actual floor plan, it’s ok.  Print it and that will be your starting point.
  • Next, write a list of things you want to see added to your new home plan. Create a second list of things you do not like about the plan you printed out.
  • Finally, schedule a meeting with a Harvest Homes representative or professional builder to use all the above points to create “your dream home”. Harvest Homes offers our builders and dealers reduced rates for select design services so each customer is as involved in the designing process as they desire.

Google, Pinterest, E-Plans and many others are great tools for inspiration, but can fall short of your needs and/ or local building codes. So, let us ensure that your new home plan is up to code and meets all state guidelines.

At Harvest Homes, we excel at fitting all of these pieces together, all while working with our customers and keeping their budgets in mind. Your perfect floor plan is just a meeting away………..
