Got land? Before you spend too much time browsing floor plan possibilities, you need to know where that home will be built. Not all floor plan designs are suited for all building sites. For instance, a walk_out basement typically requires a home being built on a slope or recessed into a hillside. Additionally, some plans are designed to take advantage of the home's location relative to sunlight so even if you already own your land, you will want to know where and how your home will be positioned on your property. Once you have an idea of where those logs will be stacked it's time to figure out what that stack needs to look like.
You made your decision; you are finally going to build that log home. Not just any log home, but that special creation you've held in your mind's eye for so many years. You have walked on those hardwood floors, gazed out from behind those oversized picture windows, cooked dinner, curled up by the fire, and even slept in that special home _ using that vivid imagination of yours. Oh yeah, you've been dreaming about your log home for a long time, and you have finally decided to make your dream become your reality.
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!
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.
