By and large, almost any residential floor plan can be adapted to a log home, but there are substantial differences and considerations that need to be addressed. One such example is that of room dimensions as they relate to the diameter of the logs you will be utilizing. A custom handcrafted home made from 20" diameter logs will have a different footprint than one requiring 6" milled logs. If this is the first time you will be dealing with a log home manufacturer or architect, make sure you are comparing 'apples to apples' when discussing interior dimensions. If you want a room to be 14' wide, make certain that your designer knows that you want the interior of the room to have 14' of open clearance and not measured from the center of the corresponding logs. Using the example above, your 14' room could shrink to 12' if such presumptions are not understood.
In many cases it can also make or break a restaurant. This is why making sure that you take out time to review sample restaurant floor plans, you are ensuring that you are doing every possible to avoid costly floor layout and design mistakes. It is essential when it comes to making sure you make the most out of your restaurant financing without having to fix mistakes that are costly or end up losing substantial profits when the work flow ends up being awkward.
