A house is built with hands, but a home is built with hearts _ so the old saying goes. However, too much choice in the form of floor plans can be confusing sometimes. Therefore, an understanding of the different styles and how they suit the individual's needs and tastes is an essential step in the process of building a home.
The ranch house floor plan was the American Dream in a box from the late 1940s to the mid 1960s. Sliding glass doors, kidney shaped swimming pools and back yard patios created a new informal way of entertaining guests. Though the ranch house floor plan was the embodiment of casual living, most homes of that era lacked architectural details that would make them memorable. By the 1970s, the ranch style house was replaced by the split level home with Colonial or English details. The 1980s saw a reversal of the ranch house floor plan formula that included showy front entries with grand staircases and vaulted ceilings while the back of the house was left almost naked. The only remains of the ranch house floor plan today are the open floor plans, great rooms and hearth kitchens and the current popular trend of an outdoor room. All leftovers from the original ranch style housing era.
Technical difference _ In 2D floor plans, you, the designer, work on both y axis and x axis. Moreover, the design can be changed in up, down, right and left sides. On the other hand, 2D plans are a lot simpler and cheaper relatively. They can be used to show the right, top and front side of the object. Unlike 2D, designers work on three exis to create 3D floor plans. Actually, this is like molding an object that looks same no matter which angle you look at it from. With 3D technology, solid models and wireframes are created line by line.
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!
