These are just a few ideas that can help you choose and refine a floor plan to fit your lifestyle and accommodate your family's needs. Your log home company or architect will have many ideas that you may not have considered so encourage them to offer suggestions. Explain what you are trying to achieve and let their experience and knowledge guide you, but in the end, this is your floor plan.
It is also a good idea to keep a list of things that you don't like; things you may have seen in a magazine or noted when visiting other log homes. Some of the most frequent complaints one hears about log homes, especially older models, is the lack of storage space and small closets or bathrooms. This is most often the result of poor planning or not taking into consideration the diameter of log walls and the lack of attics in most log homes. Refer to your list when discussing details with your designer and remember that in most cases you cannot build a closet or a bathroom that is too large.
Setting a proper floor plan is essential to being able to maximize future profits and minimize losses. Everything from the kitchen to the front door needs to be planned out and laid out in order to ensure that the restaurant follows a flow pattern that is going to allow the kitchen to run smoothly during food preparation and cooking as well as the flow in and out of the kitchen. Setting these aspects are going to be the largest drain on finances for any new restaurant.
Create a list of all the spaces or functions you will need or want in your home. Many people confuse this with how many rooms do you need, we will get to that in a minute. It is common for people to feel the need for more specific rooms than they actually need once they assess how they can multi_purpose some rooms. From here you will create a list of rooms like number of bedrooms and bathrooms that you need and this list might be slightly different than you originally thought of. This is a good time to entertain the question of whether you really have to have all the bedrooms on one floor or not remembering the concept that multi_level space costs less.
