One should work their way around the room and get into a measuring rhythm. Beginning at one corner, measure from one corner to inside the door or window frame. Then measure the door or window width. Now measure from the other side of the door or window along the wall to the next door or window. Measure the width of the door or window. Continue measuring until the measurements on each or the room's wall have been completely transcribed to the rough drawing. Measure column widths and where they are exactly placed in the room by measuring from perpendicular walls to the column.
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.
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!
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.
