The bungalow floor plan, for example, suits a laid_back and comfortable lifestyle. It is a popular floor plan throughout America. They are smaller than other modern floor plans. However, they are extremely livable because the living area is open and planned for ease of access. The roof hangs low, the rafters and ridge beams are uncovered, and porches are large, with narrowed quadrangular columns.
The ranch house floor plan is a shining example of the American Dream in its purest form. It was then, and remains today, the most widely built housing style ever seen in America. This house plan style had its heyday from 1949 to 1965 for several reasons.
Now the fun begins, and the first order of business is to choose the right floor plan that is consistent with the home you have pictured in your mind's eye _ and the property on which it will be built. Odds are you'll probably not open a magazine by chance and stumble upon a floor plan that has occupied your dreams all these years. Choosing a plan and refining the design to meet your needs will require some research, self_introspection and creative inspiration.
Begin with measuring. Do a very rough drawing, on a piece of scrap paper for measuring purposes only, of your room showing walls and openings for doors, windows and fireplaces. Note where columns and built_in cabinetry are in the room as well. Take out the measuring tape and begin measuring a room writing down each measurement in the applicable space on your rough drawing. For a basic start, measure the length and width of your room.
