Home design help for everyone...

Hi I’m Meg.  Welcome to House Plans Helper (or HPH for short).

There are lots of sites out there to help you with the interior décor of your home.  I bet you’ve spent more than an hour or two browsing through all those beautiful pictures.

But what about the bones of your home – the floor plan, the lighting design, the window placement etc?  Get these wrong and no amount of decoration can put it right.

Building, renovating or buying a home is a big deal.  With the amount of money you’ll spend on your home it makes sense to learn a little about home design.

The House Plans Helper website is here to help you.
