So, What IS Traditional Style? If you're a little hazy on the details, traditional‐style decor is that elegant, intricately‐made furniture and layout that makes you think of an old English manor. Think gold gilding, curly chair‐back designs and plush velvet couches. Think dark mahogany, carved table‐stands and four‐poster beds. Colours are rich without being garish, and wood and brass play a big part.
Once you have purchased the land that you plan to build on, you are ready to select a house plan for your dream home. If you are looking to purchase a pre‐made home plan, you may have to make some small compromises as your ideas may not fit into what is available. Another alternative is to purchase a pre‐made house plan and later have it modified to suit your particular needs and tastes by a architect. Do know that this will not be without a rather sizable expense, however it may still be more cost effective than if you were to have a plan built from scratch.
Choosing a design for thin lots really isn't that much different than choosing a design for larger lots. Narrow‐lot building has become so common that you'll find plenty of options to choose from. To get started, think about what features are important to you, and use that as a starting point. What rooms do you need? How many bedrooms do you want? What size yard (or home) do you want? Then find a home builder who specialises in narrow or two‐storey homes to help you find your perfect home.
Carefully place your garage. For architects, the garage is a major challenge to creating beautiful house plans. Garages are enormous and unsightly. Your garage will suck up all of your prime space if it isn't wisely located. One way to add a garage to narrow house plans is to locate the car park in the rear, accessible via an alleyway. Or a detached garage may be installed at a slight angle to the house. Lastly, as described earlier, you can keep a ground‐level garage but relocate the main living area to the second floor. (This creates a lovely tree house feeling that many people who live in narrow lot house plans enjoy.)
