Functionality of space _ if there is an elderly person or invalid at home with requirement for extra space or young children who need more space around the house, these requirements should be factored in. Making provision for family changes while drawing up floor plans is advantageous even if the requirement is not immediate as future alterations and additions may not be possible always.
It is also a good idea to keep a list of things that you don't like; things you may have seen in a magazine or noted when visiting other log homes. Some of the most frequent complaints one hears about log homes, especially older models, is the lack of storage space and small closets or bathrooms. This is most often the result of poor planning or not taking into consideration the diameter of log walls and the lack of attics in most log homes. Refer to your list when discussing details with your designer and remember that in most cases you cannot build a closet or a bathroom that is too large.
During these same discussions ask questions like the cost difference to build a single level home as compared to a multi_level home. This is valuable information even if you are planning on a single level as your only option. The reason is that multi_level house floor plans costs are less per square foot and you may get more bang for your buck that way.
Interactivity _ For improved user experience, 3D floor may include lots of animated options. On the other hand, 2D plans may not offer that many options. Aside from this, 3D plans give control to the viewer so that they can rotate the design to check the structure from different angles. Moreover, the designs allow the user to press a button to make the furniture appear or disappear inside the rooms.
