30×40 3 Bedroom House Plans
This house plan is ideal for people who want to build on a limited space. The entire building will take no more than 1200 square feet. So, you might want to consider plans that fall into the 30×40 category if you do not have the luxury of space.
It could also be a great option for people who have a lot of space but want something compact. This would allow them to have sufficient space for other things. A garden, lawn, play area, and pool are examples of things that can be erected on the remaining portion of land.
You should also know that this plan is more about the size of the property than an architectural style. For example, a cottage or cabin-style modern building can be made into a 30×40 plan. There are several things you have to consider when choosing your 30×40 plan. One of the most important is the number of rooms you want on the property. This will influence a lot of other things. One of the most common answers for many is a 3 bedroom 30×40 plan.
A 3 bedroom design most certainly offers enough room for a regular family. You may also be squeezed in space for other activities to be performed in the building. It is important to point out that all of the parts earmarked as bedrooms do not even have to be used for that purpose.
For instance, one of them can be used as a library. If you are going for the 3 bedroom option, here are some things you should take note of:
Have a Comprehensive List of all Desired Features
It is not enough to decide that you need nothing less than 3 bedrooms. You also need to think long and hard about the other features you want in the home. After you have thought about this, then you may need to separate the necessities from things you can do without.
Some of the other things you should think about include the availability of a parking garage, hallway, kitchen, dining area, and other things you may consider important. Some of these things are paramount while you can do without some.
For instance, you may not need a garage as a carport on another part of the property can be used. Another thing you can decide to do without is the hallway. This does not mean you should strike them out. It only means they can be erased from the eventual design.
The Size of Every Part
Some people who hire architects to design a custom-made plan go back and forth with their architects for different reasons. This period spent going back and forth amounts to billable hours that will need to be paid for. As a result, some of them end up spending more than they planned on the initial consultation. You need to do all you can to prevent or reduce the chances of this happening.
One thing you can do is decide how big or small you want parts of the house to be. You need to understand your personal preferences to arrive at something you would love. For instance, some people cannot just deal with a small kitchen. They need all the space they can get there. The whole point here is understanding exactly what you want and making sure that the eventual design aligns with them.
Style and Floors
The 30×40 plan is more about size and not style as explained earlier. So, you need to decide what style you want. You should also know that some architectural styles will look better with 30×40 plans than others. Options such as cottages, cabins, and bungalows fall into this category. Just make sure what you choose also suits your needs.
You also need to decide the number of floors. We strongly advise people that want so many features and want them large to consider more than 1 story. This is because the upper portion will provide more space.
