Blue prints of a real estate property can be transformed into 3D or interactive floor plans. Property owners who are willing to design their own engineering plans often look to use architectural design software for 3D or interactive floor plans. 3D architectural plans are illustrations/layout of a property. It is created from the basic blue prints of the building which is further edited to add electrical outlets, plumbing fixtures, windows, doors, furniture etc. This gives a complete overview of the home and the elimination of unused space. 3D home or office plans are a good way of understanding the space around the property and representing the correct measurement of doors and windows for proper ventilation. Precisely speaking, the 3D and interactive floor plans become the final step before the erection of the structure. However, it is difficult to create 3D and interactive plans for reconstruction of a property. Areas of the older plan need to be studied carefully and changed based on the requirements. Plans of existing structure are used and the preferred changes are done with no compromise in the structural reliability of the building. Engineering services also helps in making use of the space to add an extra room to the existing structure.
The informal lifestyle of California became popular as early as the late 1940s and magazines began to promote casual living as the ideal. Influences such as courtyards, patios and other Spanish colonial architectural details were embraced and played upon. What was known as the front porch or veranda, was moved from the front to the back of the house and heralded the arrival of a significant lifestyle change. Families now preferred the privacy of their back yard rather than sitting on the front porch watching traffic.
Adding or enlarging dormers is another way of capturing space from a second story or loft that is framed by a sloping roof line. You will be surprised how a well_positioned dormer can make a small loft appear much larger and provide vertical walls to accept seating, bookcases or tables that usually will not work with a conventional knee wall.
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.
