One of the best tips about using a basement for additional living space is to raise the ceiling. Adding an extra foot (or more) in the height of your basement ceiling is much less expensive than adding an additional floor or expanding the overall floor plan, and the added height will eliminate that closed_in feeling you get with so many basements.
What Selection Mistakes Do Most People Make _ Most people start the process by a best guess as to what size home they should build. They either pick a size range based on a floor plan they found and liked while randomly searching online or they tour a home they like and assume that it is the size that will be right for their needs. There are frustrating problems associated with both of these methods. Another common problem is to decide on a certain style of home or number of floors because of a beautiful home you have seen or toured somewhere else without exploring the related other options. So what is the best way to start this process, you ask?
Nothing left to the imagination _ 3D Rendering and floor planning offers you a better view of what your home or development will look like than drawings or a regular 2D floor plan. You will have access to a 360_degree panoramic view of each room and space. This means that you'll be able to work to ensure that your design is what you had imagined it would be. With a 2D plan it still requires some imagination to really understand how a space will work; 3D plans allow it to come to life, showing you how it will look at completion. With both 3D rendering and 3D floor planning you don't have to wait until completion, you will see the final product before you even start the build!
Draw a scaled plan using a pencil and graph paper. Now that the measurements have been taken it is time to get to work to create a scaled plan of the room. Drawing a room to scale on plan is simple once one understands that one quarter inch square on the graph paper equals one foot, and that inches can be estimated with half a square equaling 6_inches and a fourth of a square equating to 3_inches. Using the length and width measurements draw the basic room perimeter to scale onto the graph paper with a pencil. Draw in the doors, windows, etc. to scale on the graph paper in the same way you measured them in the room.
