Home Design Help for Everyone

Are you planning to build or remodel your home? Maybe you're looking at house plans, working with an architect or designing your own home.  Or maybe you're looking for a home to buy.  Whatever your project...

House Plans Helper is here to help you with home design

There are lots of sites out there with beautiful pictures of home decor.  This site is a little different.  HPH concentrates on the bones of a home, the design under the decor if you like.  You'll learn about layout,  architectural features and other elements that go into the design of a functional and beautiful home.

Go ahead and explore the site to learn how to make your home a joy to live in.

Here's what people are saying about House Plans Helper

Taking the time to explore this site will put you in a much better position to think about your house plans. You’ll be able to brief your architect or designer effectively and analyze floor plans to see how they measure up to what you need.

For most of us buying, building or making changes to our homes means big decisions (and lots of decisions) with large amounts of money at stake. It’s something we’re anxious to get right. Using the information and exercises on this site will arm you with better knowledge to help you make good choices. It will take a bit of time and thinking on your part and it’s well worth the effort!
