By and large, almost any residential floor plan can be adapted to a log home, but there are substantial differences and considerations that need to be addressed. One such example is that of room dimensions as they relate to the diameter of the logs you will be utilizing. A custom handcrafted home made from 20" diameter logs will have a different footprint than one requiring 6" milled logs. If this is the first time you will be dealing with a log home manufacturer or architect, make sure you are comparing 'apples to apples' when discussing interior dimensions. If you want a room to be 14' wide, make certain that your designer knows that you want the interior of the room to have 14' of open clearance and not measured from the center of the corresponding logs. Using the example above, your 14' room could shrink to 12' if such presumptions are not understood.
The actual dining room floor plan is also important. The biggest thing that needs to be considered with this is the atmosphere. This decides the layout of the restaurant and ultimately determines the amount of funding that you are going to need and where the funding is going to be allotted.
A restaurant can be a wonderful way to make money and enjoy the benefits that bringing good food to people makes however, the restaurant floor plan must be set up to match the necessary flow and style of the food that is being prepared.
Now it is time to play with placing furnishings in the floor plan. When the basic room plan is completed make a few copies and have fun designing the room for several scenarios as if playing with furniture in a dollhouse. Just as room was scaled to fit the floor plan the furniture must be placed in the room to scale as well.
