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.
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.
A 'construction set' is a collection of drawings one needs in order to acquire a building authorization, put the financing aspects in place and build a home. This collection comprises five complete sets of house floor plans. Each set has a view of the external walls from all four sides, a comprehensive set of floor plans, a basement plan, a roof plan and other pertinent details. A 'reproducible set' makes it easier to implement minor changes because this set of house plans is typically on vellum paper or erasable Mylar. This set of house floor plans includes a building license that can only be used once.
Advantages of 3D floor planning and 3D rendering _ Realistic imagery _ With both 3D floor planning and 3D image creation it allows you to see the home or development so clearly, making it easier to understand how the project will look at completion. It also gives you a better idea of how the rooms relate to each other, and how you can use the space within the home. It also gives you the option to work with the external façade, changing it until you get the final finish you are happy with.
