When considering the floor plan the first thing to do is consider the menu. The menu and the type of food that is being created actually decides the lay out of the kitchen. The first thing to do is consider the flow of traffic for food preparation. Then the flow in and out of the kitchen needs to be considered. This is even more important than the actual table layout of the restaurant itself. A mistake here could end up costing money to repair as well as lowering the available profit margin.
A home is the result of the homeowner's strenuous efforts in finding the right balance between costs, designs and spaces. Designing a home that is customized to suit a family's needs calls for a lot of careful forethought to include all the elements that are required without tilting the balance too much.
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.
A floor plan is about space deployment, or more specifically, the space you want (or need) for family members, guests, pets, entertaining and basic household operations (i.e. cooking, dining, laundry, storage, etc.). Furthermore, it is easy to overlook space requirements for many things we take for granted such as hobbies, displaying collections and other family activities. Try to anticipate as many of your family's needs as possible and expand your floor plan to accommodate your desires.
