Dear Girija, hello...! as you are a Civil Engineer, It is a wide field of Construction of almost every need of human,And I am sure  you might have basic knowledge of construction of very small buildings ,Irrigation structures (Stop Dam,spillways ,canal,etc.)Highways bridges ,culverts,Railway Engg. TrafficEngg. Town planning  etc... etc.The residential building construction is just a small part of it,,..The following points should be considered for basics of house/residential planning ..
1.Go through Building Bylaws of your State.It will give you idea of the permissible constructed area on various plot sizes and set back on plot.
2.Try to learn about specific sizes of Rooms like Drawing rm.,Dining rm.,Bed rooms, kitchen,store, Toilets, pooja rm.,dressing rm,Garage,parking etc.It is very much necessary .in  planning. 
3, Try to observe the movements inside and out side the building.,It is helpful in planning.
I think these points are enough for starting,,,,Good luck..
