Stock Home Plans


Stock home plans are an option to consider if you'd like to have a home built, but perhaps don't want to put in the hands-on effort as well as the time involved to design the house from top to bottom.  Maybe you'd like a house that fits you more specifically than one of the houses that happen to be on sale in the area you'd like to live, but you aren't super particular about all of the smaller details. A Stock home plan may suit your needs. 

There are any number of stock home plans to choose from, and you can pick them based on your prioritized criteria.  Do you want a large home plan or a small house plan?  Do you want 4 bedrooms or 5...or more?  Do you want a basement, a garage, or an attic for storage?  You can search through plans based on a number of criteria in order to find the right home for you.

Stock home plans can be a good resource, too, if you don't know what you're looking for in your new home besides a few basic requirements.  If you only know that you want a certain number of bedrooms and bathrooms, but don't know the house style you prefer, or if there are something things you don't think you want to have to deal with, investigating and researching the stock home plans may be helpful in pinpointing the kind of home plan you want.

You can search out homes by square footage.  You can search them out by number of bedrooms, most popular plans, and certain extra features of the home.  You'll need to decide if you would like a basement for storage, or a basement for more finished space, or maybe no basement at all.  Do you want a two or three car garage?  You can choose a home by architectural style, and just look through the cottage house plans, or the ranch house plans, for instance.

Depending on the company and the plans, you will probably be able to make some changes to the stock home plans if you'd like to tweak them just a bit.  Of course you'll want to find out in advance what kind of charges there will be if you choose to make this decision, but knowing that it's an available option may help you make your home plan decision more easily.  If you find a house that seems just almost perfect for your family..."if only"... you can consider the added expenses for including the changes and see if it's worth it to you to make the change, or if you'd prefer to leave the plans as they are.

If you'd like to be the first owners of a home, but would like to have a little more say in the building end, you might want to look into the stock home plans.  You can always decide to go with custom plans if you don't find something that suits your needs.  If you are able to find a stock home that meets your needs, you may be able to keep your home building expenses down, too.
