Understanding the House Floor Plans Selection Process _ The process of house floor plans selection is basically the process of assessing your new home needs including topics like the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you will want or need? How many garage stalls will fit your lifestyle? And the biggest one of all is how many square feet should you build. Now there are other important topics to consider here but we will cover them a little later on. From here you begin the process of sifting through the thousands of available plan options.
Floor plans are as easy as following the lines on graph paper. A floor plan is a scaled version of a space on paper complete with furniture and accessories. The plan begins with taking proper measurements of a room and any furnishings that are to stay in the given room. A few simple supplies are needed to begin the journey of making a basic floor plan. A tape measure. Pencil. Scrap paper. Graph paper
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.
Now it is time to play with placing furnishings in the floor plan. When the basic room plan is completed make a few copies and have fun designing the room for several scenarios as if playing with furniture in a dollhouse. Just as room was scaled to fit the floor plan the furniture must be placed in the room to scale as well.
