The family usually enters the house through or near the garage, so why not include a "drop-zone" for weather gear and a recharging station for cell phones as part of a mud room. It could also include space for the washer and dryer.
Windows on two sides of a room balance daylight and create a spacious feeling; windows on just one side of a room create a cave-like feeling and promote glare. Windows set high in a wall can provide daylight while preserving privacy; however a room with these high windows, often called clerestories, will feel tight and boxy if it does not also have lower windows on another wall for views. A window wall that wraps around the end of a room, can be an especially dramatic way to celebrate a view -- as long as there is an overhang to protect from too much direct sunlight.
A good floor plan makes the traffic flow between the major living areas easy and graceful, without creating bottlenecks or dead-end spaces that might trap guests at a party, or make it difficult to get from one part of the house to another. Here are examples of floor plans with flexible circulation.
A plan “set” is the collection of all of the various individual pages that describe the house. Plan sets usually include: a site plan, building notes, floor plans for each level of the house, framing and roofing plans, electrical plans, plans for the mechanical systems, and construction details. A “Floor Plan” refers to the map of an individual floor. The simplest way to understand a floor plan is to imagine looking down on a doll house without its roof. “Design drawings” are floor plans that include a modest amount of information and are created to communicate a home design to non-professionals. “Working drawings” or “construction drawings” contain much more information: they are used to build the home. For the most part, this article refers to design drawings.
