How would a colder climate affect building plans?
In the future my husband and I plan to build our own home in the Carolinas. I have the blue prints of my childhood home my parents built here in S. Florida where we currently live. Basically I’m asking what do I need to take into consideration to modify the building plans for a colder climate. My childhood home is much like a ranch style 1 story house. I’m just trying to get as much info as I can. Thank you.
