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.
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.
