Begin with measuring. Do a very rough drawing, on a piece of scrap paper for measuring purposes only, of your room showing walls and openings for doors, windows and fireplaces. Note where columns and built_in cabinetry are in the room as well. Take out the measuring tape and begin measuring a room writing down each measurement in the applicable space on your rough drawing. For a basic start, measure the length and width of your room.
Research your current market building costs. Contact a local realtor or custom home builder and discuss the average cost per square foot to build a home of the style you like. Now understand that this will only be an average because they can't possibly guess your personal tastes and the finish materials are a large part of any new home cost.
One of the best tips about using a basement for additional living space is to raise the ceiling. Adding an extra foot (or more) in the height of your basement ceiling is much less expensive than adding an additional floor or expanding the overall floor plan, and the added height will eliminate that closed_in feeling you get with so many basements.
With a fantasy file and floor plans the perfect furnishings to complete a lovely decor can now be easily purchased without stress. Walk into a store with a goal and the tools needed to complete the mission without worry of a hard selling salesperson. Understanding the exact needs of the room puts the buyer in control of their own destiny of a beautiful abode.
