How to Choose the Right Floor Plan for Your Custom Home


Finding the right floor plan  for you and your family is one of the most important decisions to make when building a custom home. Luckily, Hansman Custom Homes, located in Columbia, Mo, offers an impressive number of customizable floor plans to best accommodate the functional and aesthetic needs within your new home.

What is a Custom Home Floor Plan?

On paper, a floor pan is an aerial sketch of the layout of your home. The drawing represents the spatial relationships between rooms and physical attributes within the interior of your home. A floor plan is a blueprint to be carefully followed as a guide. The mockup allows the future homeowner to confirm the layout of their home is compatible with their spatial needs and will not only look appealing, but also ensure the space will efficiently serve its intended purpose. Although there are certain guidelines to follow, a floor plan is customizable in order to meet the standards of the new homeowner. The floor plan determines so much of the home’s character and functionality, making it a big decision requiring careful thought.
